The High Court of Justice ruled Sunday that Israel is under no obligation to act immediately to provide Bedouin residents of the Negev. However, the court also said the state does have a responsibility to provide protection in the long term for all citizens of Israel.

In the ruling, Justices Yoram Danziger, Zvi Zylbertal and Noam Sohlberg said there is no dispute concerning the supreme obligation of the state to protect the lives and physical integrity of its citizens, but they added that there is nothing wrong with the decision of the defence establishment not to erect portable shelters in the villages.

“(We) felt confident that if the circumstances were to change in such a way as to justify the transferral of shelters to the villages – that the respondents would alter their position,” the court said. 

According to a release by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), the Justices further noted that they did not possess any data on the mode of operation of the Iron Dome Interception System (the Department of Defence did not provide any information to the court), yet they remarked that “we believe that the dispersal and operation of this system is based upon practical considerations with no weight given to the appearance or absence of any settlements on different maps.”

In response to the ruling, ACRI Attorney Nisreen Alyan said, “Thousands of residents of Negev villages live in constant terror of rocket attacks – a fear that has come to pass and has caused physical and psychological harm. Alongside this existential fear is a sense of utter abandonment. Unfortunately, this is yet another instance of the growing alienation between these residents and state institutions”.

    There is a chosen in Israel, but not all Israel is chosen…
    There is a divine protection over Israel, but not all Israel is protected…

    - Zechariah 13: 8 And it shall come to pass in all the land,” says the Lord, “that TWO THIRDS IN IT SHALL BE CUTOFF AND DIE, but one–third (a remnant) shall be left in it: 9 I will bring the one–third through the fire, will refine the as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘this is My people’; and each one will say, ‘The Lord is my Elohim.’”

    - Zechariah 14:1 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, and your spoil will be divided in your midst. 2 For I will gather all the nations to BATTLE AGAINST JERUSALEM; THE CITY SHALL BE TAKEN , THE HOUSES RIFLED, AND THE WOMEN RAVISHED. HALF THE CITY WILL GO INTO CAPTIVITY, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east….. 9 And the Lord shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be- “The Lord is one,” and His name one. …. 11 The people shall dwell in it; and no longer shall there be utter destruction, but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

    - Matthew 24:15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation’, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains….. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake (the Remnant) those days will be shortened.”

    - Rev 14:9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of Elohim, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”

    - Revelation 14:1 Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion,- and with Him one hundred and forty four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps. 3 They sang, as it were, a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. 4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being first fruits to Elohim and to the Lamb. 5 And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of Elohim.
