Knesset member and chairman of right-wing Israeli party Otzma Yehudit has described Bedouin citizens in the Negev Desert as ‘dirty’ and said that they ‘pollute our country’.

Itamar Ben-Gvir’s comments were made in reference to reports about large amounts of rubbish in the Negev, including domestic, construction, and industrial waste.

According to Israel Hayom, around 3,500 tons of waste have been dumped illegally in a certain area in the Negev.

Although the report and Israeli officials did not blame the Bedouin Arab citizens of Israel for the waste in the Negev, the parliamentarian decided otherwise. “Enough is enough,” he said.

Ben-Gvir joined the Knesset as part of Religious Zionism, a bloc of far-right parties that came together at Benjamin  Netanyahu’s prodding to pass the electoral threshold.

  1. The way to deal with neo-Nazi Israel and the BDS is to treat Israel with disdain and shun all those that support its crimes. Eventually this will force Israel to start obeying the law and return to its legally defined 1948 borders and stop killing Palestinians men women and children and thereby start acting less like a rogue criminal terrorist state that routinely commits war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and Apartheid in order to steal land and resources belonging to other countries.
