The Isr. Civil Rights Association held a presser to coincide with govt. putting a bill before the Knesset that would remove from the courts' jurisdiction seizure of Bedouin land to construct an airfield in the Negev, to replace the Sinai air bases to be lost at the end of the 3-yr. period when all the Sinai will be returned to Egypt.
Shows reporters listening to Knesset Member, Prof. Hans Klinghoffer (of the Hebrew Univ. Law Faculty), and Dr. Clinton Bailey, of the Tel Aviv University department of Middle East Studies.
Despite this protest, and demonstrations in front of the Knesset, the govt. went ahead and presented the bill for a first reading. It is expected to pass.
