I wasn’t sure if I was going to blog about this, and now Oren Yiftachel has saved me the trouble. It’s horrifying that apparently Israelis of all backgrounds and ages saw the destruction of a Bedouin village as a cause for glee. Unfortunately, this is only the most stark example of the treatment of so-called “unrecognized villages” in Israel. And yes, folks, these are Israeli citizens.
Yiftachel’s excellent piece can be read here, and it includes background on the entire issue.
