  • Description

    About two hundred Bedouin arabs have demonstrated outside the Knesset in Jerusalem to protest against what they call the grossly inadequate compensation offered by the government for the seizure of their desert pastures. The land is to be used for two new air bases.
    The target for these Bedouins' demonstration is a bill before the Knesset, which would clear the way for confiscation of some of their land. The Israeli Air Force needs new bases to replace those in territories given up under the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty. They say a law is proposed that would be directed against an ethnic group, the Bedouin. They want the opportunity to negotiate with the government over compensation.
