The flexibility of Umm al Hiran Residents vs the government’s intransigence

No Comments 05 February 2017

On January 18 2017, the Israeli government attempted to begin erasing the entire Bedouin Israeli village of Umm al Hiran in order to build a Jewish community on the rubble.

We also call on the government to seek a resolution that is just and acceptable to the residents of Umm al-Hiran regarding the future of their village.

Rabbis for Human Rights would like to thank all those who went to the trouble of donating sleeping bags, blankets and warm winter clothes to the ten Jahalin Bedouin families who lost their homes in the Judean Desert about two weeks ago in a cruel, heartless act of destruction by the Israeli army’s Civil Administration.

The things were very appreciated but right now we need no more donations of this kind. (Donations of a financial kind are always welcome to support our work, of course.) Continue Reading
