Dror: A Brand New Zionist Future

After more than 20 years since the Israeli government decided to establish Dror, a Jewish community of 2,500 families or 10,000 residents, and the defeat of countless Bedouin lawsuits against the plan, work began last week to finally turn the plan into reality.

In the area where the community was planned stood the illegal Bedouin village of Umm al-Khiran, which the state wanted to evacuate. In 2004, representatives of Umm Al-Khiran appealed to the Magistrate’s Court in Be’er Sheva against the decision to establish Dror, claiming that the state was the one that established their village in the 1950s.

Today we celebrate a brand-new Zionist future in the south, a small Jewish town that will serve as a bulwark against Bedouin expansion, help put a stop to Bedouin crime, and help establish a contiguous, safe Jewish State between Tel Aviv and Eilat.
