    Thank you, Apocalypse, and the others here.

    You know. There was time that it seemed like I was the only one fighting off the anti-Israeli, Anti- Jew propaganda on the net. I swear it was like this for a long time. Of course I was armed with facts, the propagandist's, well we know what they're armed with.. Anyway, as a Jew, and someone that has close ties to Israel, I thank all of you for stepping up.

    Facts on the ground need to be facts before they can be on the ground, and sadly your opinion has no basis in reality.

    I apologize for the confusion, I should have said most of the Negev as some of the Negev was not declared state land.

    Moreover, Bedouin are not barred from land ownership.
    Never said they were, rather I said they were forcibly resettled. Notice also this little bit:

    Under Israeli law, a person who has not registered his/her land in the Land Registry cannot claim ownership; but in the mid 1970s Israel let the Negev Bedouin register their land claims and issued certificates as to the size of the tracts claimed.
    Effectively saying that before they were not allowed to even claim the land they lived on when the Israeli government declared it wasn't theirs. Also:

    The government is willing to leave some 20% of the land claimed in Bedouin possession and to compensate them for the remainder.
    Even then most of it is not being given back.

    It's only ridiculous and shameless to keep silent when the facts are being twisted and the truth is no longer held to a higher value.

    Well that's very sad, considering that I, an Israeli, would be really really surprised if it was true.

    Well, I don't know either way. All I know is that discrimination does happen everywhere and no country is really immune to it.

    I agree with you spud.
    As a very strong Israel supporter here on DP, I can only continue to be disappointed/marvel at Gaff after Gaff by the Israeli government.
    There was the Biden disaster a few months ago.
    Then they got suckered by a bunch of Turkish Thugs in the Flotilla incident.
    Legal or not.... This was a Bad Tactical move and PR blunder.

    The oft accused 'Masters/Controllers of the Media' are anything but.
    They can't even make their own case moderately well.
    I'm going to request overtime pay as a supporter.

    But for the record, I don't see this string as strong "Breaking News" stuff in the scheme of things. Just a propaganda cheap shot.
