The Israeli government encourages their existence, because these folks are excellent farmers and develop the land and Israel's agricultural economy.

Old Jerusalem is a walled city with honey colored walls that snake around the cluster of narrow streets and magnificent Churches and Temples for over 2 miles, most over 400 years old. Though it occupies an area of less than one square ...
... of the Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth where it is virtually impossible to sink because of the buoyancy the salt causes, and then took a wee lil' shortcut to Jerusalem through the West Bank.
