Yoel Zilberman, founder of the New HaShomer (Guard) organization - a renewal of the lengendary HaShomer organization that helped protect Jewish farmers in the Land of Israel in the early 1900's - spoke at the Jerusalem Conference on Wednesday.

Zilberman spoke of the violent attacks by Bedouins on Jewish-owned farms in the Negev, and his organization's efforts to put an end to the phenomenon. A third-generation farmer from the Galilee, a similar situation - and attempt at solution - exists there as well.
