Bennett: My Personal Debt to the Bedouins


Economics Minister Naftali Bennett inaugurated two occupational guidance centers for southern Israel’s Bedouin population earlier today (Tuesday). The new centers are located in the communities of Rahat and Lakia and join seven other similar centers serving the Negev’s Bedouin residents.

Bennett spoke at the inaugurations, mentioning a special debt holds towards the Bedouin population. “A Bedouin man saved my life in Lebanon during a military action… In the name of the Israeli government, I am telling you that we love you and will do our best in order to integrate more and more Bedouin workers into the labor force.”
