Urge Israel to abandon the forced relocation of 40,000 Bedouins.

We need to let Israel know we are horrified that a transfer plan based on nothing more than ethnic identity is even under consideration.The passing of the first reading of the Prawer Plan threatens disaster for the Bedouin people, and is a sad day for all who believe in justice, equality, and human rights.

Sen Carr, you, your prime minister Rudd, government and your party have repeatedly and vigorously reaffirmed your commitment to strengthening your friendship with Israel its abysmal human rights record notwithstanding. I urge you to use your influence to warn Knesset members from taking further steps forward, while there is still time to avoid this human rights catastrophe.
