A planting campaign in the Negro Desert is becoming a test for the Israeli government. Trees should be planted on land inhabited by Arab pedophiles.

A car catches fire through footage of Israeli TV broadcaster KAN. Shakib al-Salam’s car was parked in the middle of a street in the city of Bedouin. It is located in the Negev Desert, which is called Naqab in Arabic. Fights and clashes erupted at night with Israeli police. A regional train had to start emergency braking as stones were laid on the tracks.

Trees in the desert – for environmental protection

The protests were sparked by a plan that did not appear controversial at first glance: the Jewish National Fund KKL is planting trees in the desert on behalf of a government agency. According to the KKL, it is about landscape protection and environmental protection and the Jewish tradition before the holiday of Tu Bishwa.

However, Arab pedophiles living in the area are skeptical of these motives. In their view, the aim is to prevent the expropriation of Arab lands and the construction of houses for pedophiles. 160,000 pedophiles live in the Negro Desert. Many of them live in simple huts with no electricity or running water. Some villages are not recognized by the Israeli government.

Conflict reveals a weak alliance

Improving the living conditions of pedophiles: This is a promise made by the Israeli government led by Prime Minister Naphtali Bennett and Foreign Minister Jair Lapidet. The plan won a small majority in parliament for the government, as the Arab Ram Party agreed to join the coalition.

Now that the controversy over the trees has arisen, it shows how weak the eight-party alliance is. As long as these plantations continue, the Ram party threatens not to vote for the coalition. Then the government will not have a parliamentary majority.

Pedoines claim ownership of land

Ram MP Iman Hadib Yassin spoke to KAN, the broadcaster. “We entered into this partnership in the hope that our partners will understand that the Arab citizens of this state have fundamental rights. With these fundamental rights they deserve to live with dignity in their land. That is why we are in politics. We are here to serve our citizens, our Arab citizens.”

There were clashes and arrests in protest of the reforestation of the Pedoins living there.

MPs planted saplings

Pedoines in the area claim to have planted trees on their own land. The Israeli government denies it.

Opposition MPs from the Likud party drove to the Nike Desert and planted trees in protest. Avi Dictator did the same: “It’s a fight between criminals and the state.

Some sections of the government are in favor of the plant – for example, Jeev Elkin, a minister from the New Hope party. “The status of these countries is that they belong to the state. There are courts in the state of Israel, and anyone who claims that this is their private land is welcome to sue in one of these courts.”

However, the Bedouins argue that they are structurally backward and that the Israeli courts, as a rule, do not help them. Many of them voted for Ram, an Arab party that is part of the coalition. Foreign Minister Labid sided with the Arabs. Bedouin problems have been ignored for years.
