The Negev (Hebrew: הַנֶּגֶב,  ) is a desert and semidesert region of southern Israel..The origin of the word negev is from the Hebrew root denoting 'dry'..The Negev Desert and the surrounding area, including the Arava Valley, are the sunniest parts of Israel and little of this land is arable, which is why it has become the center of the Israeli solar industry..

The Negev is home to hazardous infrastructures that include a nuclear reactor, 22 agro and petrochemical factories, an oil terminal, closed military zones, quarries, a toxic waste incinerator Ramat Hovav, cell towers, a power plant, several airports, a prison, and 2 rivers of open sewage..In 2005, the Tel Aviv municipality was accused of dumping waste in the Negev at the Dudaim dump..The Manufacturers Association of Israel established an authority in 2005 to move 60 industrial enterprises active in the Tel Aviv region to the Negev...

Nomadic life in the Negev dates back at least 4,000 years and perhaps as much as 7,000 years.. The first urbanized settlements were established by a combination of Canaanite, Amalekite, and Edomite groups circa 2000 BC.. Pharaonic Egypt is credited with introducing copper mining and smelting in both the Negev and the Sinai between 1400 and 1300 BCAccording to the Book of Genesis chapter 13, Abraham lived for a while in the Negev near Kadesh after being banished from Egypt.. Later the northern Negev was inhabited by the Tribe of Judah and the southern Negev by the Tribe of Shimon. The Negev was later part of the Kingdom of Solomon and then part of the Kingdom of Judah..

Nomadic tribes ruled the Negev largely independently and with a relative lack of interference for the next thousand years.. What is known of this time is largely derived from oral histories and folk tales of tribes from the Wadi Musa and Petra areas in present-day Jordan..A railroad connected it to the port of Rafah. In 1914 the Turkish authorities estimated the nomadic population at 55,000.. The Bedouin component of the population was estimated at 72,898 out of a total of 75,254 for the Beersheba sub-district.. The 1931 census estimated that the population of the Beersheba sub-district was 51,082.. This large decrease was considered to be an artifact of incorrect enumeration methods used in 1922.. An Arabic history of tribes around Beersheba, published in 1934 records 23 tribal groups... are dealing with forces beyond all human experience, and enormous phower.. So guard her well.. Otherwise, your precious Lucy will become a bitch of the Devil!. A whore of darkness!..I, who served the Cross. I, who commanded nations, hundreds of years before you were born...
