[NegevBedouin] A sad day for Israel: police entering Al-Araqib cemetery right now

It seemed that there were `red lines` even for the police brutality against the Bedouins of the Israeli Negev - while destroying homes that had no possibility for acquiring building permits, arresting people on their village lands in order to make room for JNF trees, beating activists who dared request to see the official papers allowing the brutality - all seemed to be `ok`. but until today - even for the police - the cemetery and the people waiting in the cemetery for the police to leave - were off limits. no more.

after destroying the tents of the village - yet again, the JNF (yes!) bulldozer approached the gate of the cemetery attempting to run it down and destroy it. this was too much for the village people, who are sitting in their community`s cemetery, watching as their village is once more destroyed. as the bulldozer approached the gate, the people went to stop it with their bare hands. several are injured, including children. they are being evacuated at this moment by ambulances.

The bulldozer has backed away from the gate, and the police and bulldozers are now a few yards away from the cemetery, re-thinking their next move. 

Do all you can to stop this horrible escalation of the treatment of the Arab citizens of Israel!!!
