Bedouin children with cancer were refused entry into a community pool in a town in Israel’s south, according to a report on Channel 2. The children were supposed to have a fun day at the Mabu’im community pool, but were denied entry after their doctor was told that although the families of Mabu’im do not have an issue with Bedouin children, they indeed have a problem “with the ‘sector’” (a term commonly used to describe the whole of the Arab community in Israel).
