    NAZARETH, (PIC)-- The high follow-up Committee for Arab citizens called for a general strike on Sunday in all parts of the 1948 occupied lands in support of the Negev region and its people.

    The committee said it would organize many events in protest of the Israeli ethnic-cleansing plan to appropriate about 800 dunums of Palestinian land from their rightful owners that would led to the destruction of Negev villages and the displacement of about 30, 000 Palestinians from their homes and communities.

    The committee also called for participating actively in the protest to be held Sunday morning outside the headquarters of the Israeli government in occupied Jerusalem, and noted it would provide dozens of buses to transport thousands of protesters to this place.

    Several thousand Bedouin demonstrated on Sunday outside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office, protesting over a plan they say will displace tens of thousands of people from their land.

    The demonstrators came from Bedouin communities across Israel, gathering outside Netanyahu's Jerusalem office holding signs reading "We are staying here" and "No to the Praver Plan."

    In October, several thousand Bedouin joined a similar demonstration in Beersheva, with Bedouin villages and towns observing a general strike.

    AL-ARAKIB, Israel (Reuters) - Bulldozed by Israel more than two dozen times, a village known by Bedouin Arabs as Al-Arakib is one of many ramshackle desert communities whose names have never appeared on any official map.

    If Israel's parliament adopts proposed new legislation, it never will.

    NAZARETH, (PIC)-- An Israeli court on Sunday re-issued a decision to demolish the Palestinian village of Umm Al-Hayran in the Negev desert area.

    Adalah center, a group defending the rights of the Arab minority in the 1948 occupied lands, said an Israeli court issued demolition orders against all the 33 homes of Umm Hayran village, which the Israeli occupation government does not recognize it.

    The center noted that the occupation government wants to raze the village in order to establish a Jewish settlement in its place.

    Lawyer for the center Suhad Bishara said the court ignored the history of Umm Hayran and their forced migration to the area at the behest of the military governor in 1956 after they had been forced out of their native village.
