The Arab al-Jahalin is the biggest bedouin community that lives in the desert between Jerusalem and Jericho. This part of the West Bank is called Area C, where Israel retains control over security as well as planning and zoning, and holds strategic significance for further expansion of illegal Israeli settlements.
The bedouins live in miserable shacks, without electricity or running water, grazing their sheeps between debris and dreaming of the flourishing desert of Beersheva, where theyive been forcefully evicted, across the
1949 armistice lines by Israeli authorities. In the last 15 years the Bedouin communities have been subject to demolition, requisition of cattle, attacks by settlers, aimed to get away from the area. But despite this, the communities have shown determination and unbelievable resilience, who led the Israeli military authorities to draw up a “relocation” plan, presented last October. Ignoring the aspirations, needs, traditions and the system of relations inherent in the Bedouin culture, the plan provides the deportation and a forced establishment of the Jahalin tribe next to the Abu Dis rubbish dump. For other Bedouins living in the Jordan Valley is expected a similar fate, with the creation of a complex near Nabi Musa.
