Currently new political attacks against Israel are crystallizing around the Begin plan. Former MK Benny Begin has written legislation to integrate the Bedouin into Israel society. Naturally there’s debate about the merits of the plan. Naturally, those opposed to it cast in light of institutional Israeli racism.
