Israel’s Negev Bedouins and Arabs are on the margins — and yet, paradoxically, they form the heart of Israel.
“Negev” in Hebrew, “an-Naqab” in Arabic. It means dry. It also means South. The Negev desert covers more than one half of Israel’s land space. Like all deserts, it is enchanted, apparently barren and arid yet in reality teeming with life and endowed with natural beauty that is at once mystical and tangible.
