JERUSALEM- Earlier this week, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was interrupted by Arab members of the Israeli parliament, after stressing that it is unacceptable for anyone to equate Israel with Apartheid South Africa.

Following the Canadian Prime Minister’s address, Prime Minister Netanyahu took the podium to thank Harper and at the same time reminded the Arab MKs which included Arafat’s former aide; Ahmed Tibi, that are lucky to live in Israel in such a vibrant democracy as they wouldn’t get away with such behavior in other places in the Middle East, like Damascus. At that point Ahmed Tibi interjected, while pointing at his Bedouin colleague Taleb Abu Arar he declared: “In his village there is no water, no electricity…in Syria maybe.”

Regavim an organization that is no stranger to the Negev, decided to visit Taled Abu Arar’s home to see if the allegations were true. As seen in the video below, he in fact lives in a mansion, with water, electricity and satellite TV. Regavim’s findings were shown Wednesday night on a special expose by Israel’s largest television news show.

Ari Briggs, Regavim Director, responded to the incident: “ Yet again Regavim has uncovered another fabrication and blatant lie about the reality of Bedouin-Israelis in the Negev, it should be clear as day for all to see; that people like Ahmed Tibi have no shame when it comes to lying for the sake of making headlines. Regavim will continue to research and pursue justice all over the county until the day comes when the rule of law is applied equally to all of Israel’s citizens”

Regavim is an Israeli legal think tank that focuses on enforcing Israeli law across the country, exposing illegal building and criminal activities that jeopardize the future of the State of Israel. For more information: www.regavim.org.il/en/  ?

Regavim offers field trips all over the country to see first hand the damage done by the unequal application of the law and the silent conquest of Israel’s National lands. Judith Nussbaum from the UCI joined Regavim recently for a field trip to the Negev. What she saw with her own eyes shocked and disturbed her. however she was encouraged by Regavim’s struggle. “It is encouraging to see the continued fight for Jewish rights to their ancient land with such organizations as Regavim. We can all support these ardent Zionists who are “on the ground” documenting outright theft of sovereign Israeli lands and legally battling to win it back. Here is UCI’s Judith Nusbaum interviewing Regavim’s Director of International Affairs, Ari Briggs reporting on their recent victories and ongoing struggles with the illegal Bedouin land-grab.”



Bedouin gangs in the Negev – True Faces with Amnon Levy Ch 10

Written by regavim on . Posted in Negev, Videos

Amnon Levy on his “True Faces” TV show with the help of Regavim exposes the Bedouin gangs in the Negev. He does show some so-called “mistreated” Bedouins who seem so desperate that they have to turn to crime. However he doesn’t show the extremely wealthy Bedouin living off their life of crime. In any case, there should be no excuse for rampant lawlessness.
