BEERSHEBA, Israel (Ma’an) – Thousands of Palestinians holders of Israeli citizenship on Thursday demonstrated in Beersheba in southern Israel in protest against the Prawer Plan which will displace thousands of Bedouin families in the Negev desert.

A Ma’an reporter said the demonstrators waved Palestinian flags as they marched in front of a governmental complex in the center of Beersheba chanting slogans against the Prawer Plan.

Large numbers of Israeli police officers deployed in the area. Heated arguments broke out between demonstrators and police officers who tried to prevent the protesters form shutting down offices in the complex. The officers tried as well to force the protesters to lower Palestinian flags they were waving.

Several Arab members of Knesset joined the rally including Jamal Zahalqa, Ahmad Tibi, Ibrahim Sarsour and Talab Abu Arara. Chairmen of the Islamic movement in Israel Sheikh Raed Salah and Hamamd Abu Daabis also attended the protest along with several mayors and heads of local councils of Bedouin villages in the Negev.

Earlier this week, the Al-Naqab Association for Land and Human Beings called upon all residents of Negev to join a protest organized by the Higher Guidance Committee of the Arab Residents in the Negev.

The Galilean Arabs would still be living in the Hula Swamp suffering from malaria, if the Juice had not arrived to drain the land, and make it fertile. The Negev desert has, and will also bloom, with or without the Negev Arab.

Too bad your reporter didn't cover the speaches...there was a lot of good energy there, which will have to be built upon in future rallies if this diabolical plan is going to be stopped

To the moron "she who eats below" Your nonsense debunked by historian Ilan Pappe "When Israeli denial of Palestinian existence becomes genocidal" "Peres’ denial of the native Palestinians and his reselling in 2013 of the landless people mythology exposes the cognitive dissonance in which he lives." You should also see scholar Walid Khalidi's acclaimed history book "Before Their Diaspora: A Photographic History of the Palestinians 1876-1948" which debunks your old Zionist lies and nonsense.

To She #1: ' The Negev desert has, and will also bloom, with or without the Negev Arab...' It's 2013. I think you've made the Negev bloom about all it's going to bloom -- and in any case, it's not the Bedouin who are keeping you from doing it. Face it: you just like to cage Arabs.

@5 ''you've made the Negev bloom about all it's going to bloom'' Visit Beersheba Colin, and see what can happen to a desert Ottoman outpost. It's the same old story. Schools, universities, top-end medical facilities, industrial factories, farms, parks etc. It will be replicated through the Negev, and Moslems will come from their countries to learn from those, that build.
