I have repeatedly been told by those who support the state of Israel that under no conditions can I ever employ the word, APARTHEID, when referring to conditions in the democratic nation of Israel. OK, so it is OK to take over land owned by Muslims in order to deal with issues of SECURITY, but for some strange reason when taking over such land, the owners are invariably Muslim Palestinians. Anyway, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, based upon the need for NATIONAL SECURITY, proposed a new law that would ban Palestinians workers in the occupied (oops, I mean West Bank) areas of the West Bank from riding on buses along with Jews. Always remember that one must definitely make clear that Israel is a “democratic nation” and thus, by definition, democratic nations can never discriminate against certain people within its borders.
Oh, South Africa was a “democratic” nation when it imposed Apartheid in 1953 in order to prevent THOSE PEOPLE from being in body contact with OUR PEOPLE. Isaac Herzog of the Zionist Union, denounced the Netanyahu plan by saying, “this is how apartheid looks.” I assume he will be termed another person who “hates Israel” and hates Jews. Anyway, Netanyahu finally backed down and rescinded the law.
I wonder if those Jews in America who hated apartheid would have supported this version of apartheid?
