Panel | Ground Truth: Testimonies of Destruction and Return in Al-Araqib

Within the framework of exhibition Ground Truth: Testimonies of Destruction and Return in Al-Araqib, CPS is holding a scholarly panel to expand the discourse on the origins of the dispossession, expulsion, and displacement of the Palestinian Bedouins in the Negev/Al-Naqab, and in particular its historical background and legal aspects. The panelists are scholars and activists involved in historical research, legal geography, and human rights with the aim of situating the case of the Naqab Bedouins within key international debates, such as the territorial dispossession of indigenous peoples, indivisibility, and interrelationship of socioeconomic, cultural, civil, and political rights.

It should be noticed that according to NGO Monitor (see: https://www.ngo-monitor.org/ngos/zochrot/) Zochrot's mission is:
“rais[ing] public awareness of the Palestinian Nakba” and “recognizing and materializing the right of return,” stressing that “the rights of the refugees to return must be accepted.” This agenda is equivalent to calling for the elimination of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.
