Justice in Israel-Negev Bedouin

THURSDAY: Demonstration in solidarity with Um el Hiran against its destruction

1 Comment 25 August 2015

RHR, as a part of the “Recognition Forum”, requests that you make every effort to be in Um El Hiran this Thursday at 11:00am. The plans being carried out to build a Jewish community on the rubble of a Bedouin village betrays the Torah’s command not to oppress non-Jews living among us.


This Sunday the bulldozers began to prepare the land next to the Negev Bedouin village Um El Hiran for the first stage of the Jewish community of Hiran. Remember that the State plans to destroy Bedouin Arab Um El Hiran in order to build Jewish Hiran on its rubble. The work this week is to prepare temporary homes for the residents of Hiran. Afterwards, they will build permanent housing. Rushing ahead with the temporary homes before coming up with a solution acceptable to the residents of Um El Hiran is a recipe for constant conflict and tension between the two communities. Favoring the new Jewish over the Arab village existing there for years is explicit discrimination tainted with racism.

The residents of Um El Hiran and the Regional Council of Unrecognized Villages invite you to Um El Hiran this Thursday 27.8.15 at 11:00 for a demonstration and procession from the village to the area where the bulldozers are working.
