Moe Diab: Prawer Plan recalls historical atrocity of Native American ethnic cleansing

"This is among the greatest crimes against humanity. This is not so much a political issue, as it is a pending human rights catastrophe, which will affect up to 70,000 more Palestinians, if the plan proceeds uninterrupted. If Israel were truly a democratic state that upholds fundamental democratic principles, such as equal rights for all citizens, they would have come to the “unrecognized” villages to consult with the citizens to understand how they can resolve the issue democratically and humanely to actually plan a promising future for the impoverished and intentionally strangled Palestinian-Bedouin Israeli citizens on their own historical land and provide them with basic living services such as running water, electricity and sewage services. The international community must increase pressure on the government of Israel to reverse this racial discriminatory plan, which violates International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights Law, before its too late and this goes down as another Native American-like tragedy in history. We must stop it now before, our kids are reading about the ethnic cleansing and destruction of a native population and their once preserved culture and unique traditions."
