The pattern of how Israel responds to issues in the Middle East continues along the path of “let’s pretend what we have been doing can continue being done for at least a hundred years.” In February, 1953, Daniel Malan, newly elected head of the South African government introduced the idea of apartheid which separated whites and blacks. For those who did not believe two people inhabiting the same area of land could remain separated, he promised that for generations to come the idea of apartheid would endure,and thus black skinned people could remain passive as second class citizens. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants to transform Israel into a “Jewish State” in which there are citizens with certain rights, and non-Jews with fewer rights. Regardless of which words are used, this is simply another version of apartheid.
Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Financial Minister Yair Lipid, who oppose this action have been dismissed. Bibi Netanyahu will call for a new election which he will most probably win. Daniel Malan won election after election until one day reality set in and apartheid crumbled. Believe it or not, Bibi, but blacks did not go on a rampage and kill whites. Both learned to live in peace with one another. Eventually, that will occur in Israel.
