Photos: Israel and the next Silicon Valley

Israel wants to create its Silicon Valley in the Negev

My in-depth feature on Israel's quest to create its own Silicon Valley included images of Jerusalem, Ben Gurion University, and the southern Negev desert where Israel is staking its future economic hopes. I have a lot more photos than the ones in the article so I've gathered the best ones into this gallery.

This is nothing more than a propaganda for the settler colonial fascist entity called Israel that was founded on genocide and ethnic cleansing of Canaanite Palestinians - the indigenous native people of Palestine. Even in technology affairs, forums are used to market ugly colonial fascism and its entity. Stick to matters of technology without injecting your hateful pro-Israel propaganda.

Israel to expel 30K Bedouins from Negev
 http://www.presstv.com/detail/198808.html

The Israeli cabinet has given the go-ahead to a plan authorizing the expulsion of tens of thousands of Bedouin Arabs from the Negev desert where they have lived for generations.

The plan, known as the Prawer plan, will leave about 30,000 Bedouin from 13 villages homeless as Tel Aviv moves to confiscate more Arab land.

@massguy786 and the sign in Arabic says Bazar Street NOT "David Street" as distorted in manufactured English name, as Israel distorts and rewrites history to suit its fascist geopolitical goals in Occupied Palestine - that is Historical Palestine as a whole, and the accuse the Nazis of being the liars!!!

@techrepublic You will be visiting the new epicenter of apartheid and genocidal fascism aka "Israel." that land is the homeland of Palestinians NOT of invading Zionist Khazar Jewish AshkeNazis
