Israel alienating the bedouin...

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Came across this BBC News - Israel police raze 'illegal' Bedouin village in Negev which is just the latest reported incident. The bedouin used to be treated with respect by the Israelis and in return provided damned good intelligence gathered during their wanderings. By pissing that rapport away, Israel is going to find itself blind of good solid HUMINT.
  2. I wonder what the Bedouins in the north (who join the IDF even though it isn't compulsory for non-Jews) think about this.
  3. I think it's good of the Israelis to be inclusive - they've managed to alienate nearly everyone else, so why should the Bedu be any different?
  4. "…The authorities say all the homes are illegal.…"

    So when can we expect to see the Israeli Authorities start demolishing all those settlements built on Palestinian land in the West Bank?

    Or are Aktions only directed against what they treat as üntermensch?
