The right-wing NGO Regavim claims that details of the coalition agreements  reveal that Naftali Bennett and Gidon Sa'ar, who blamed PM Netanyahu for the failure of governance  in the Negev, are not only failing to provide solutions – they are exacerbating the problem.

The coalition agreements place both the Bedouin Settlement Authority and the Knesset’s Interior Committee, the key actors in the Negev issue, under the complete control of Mansour Abbas’s United Arab List,  Ra'am, and left-wing parties.

Regavim claims that this situation has unparalleled destructive potential, setting a course for total abandonment of the Negev while rewarding rampant illegal Bedouin construction.

KAN's Mark Weiss spoke with Naomi Kahn, Director of Regavim’s International Division.
