Arab Muslim Apartheid VS Pluralistic Democratic Israel
Arab Muslim Apartheid VS Pluralistic Democratic Israel
While Arabists turn security issues into slogans or slurs against Israel's struggling population against Arab terrorism and violence but they never mention or simply distort the reality.
Not only do Israeli Arabs enjoy the real and only democracy in the middle east, Arab women can be elected to the highest office in the "Jewish state", but Israeli courts often prefer Arabs' rights over Jews', especially in land issues, not to mention Israeli Arabs major advantage over Israeli Jews, not being obligated to serve in Israeli army, but still having all benefits Israeli Jews have.
However no Jew can live in "Palestine" control, not only is it the worst form of "apartheid" but it's rather ethnic cleansing and pure un-excused racism.
Despite Palestinian claims of “apartheid”, the security fence has nothing to do with racial separation. It has everything to do with preventing acts of terrorism,The fence is not an attempt to restrict the movement of the Palestinians; its sole objective is to restrict the movement of terrorists from entering Israel. It must also be pointed out that there exists both Arab and Jew on either side of the planned West Bank fence. Israel has integrated into its population its Arab citizens, which form 20% of the country’s total population. The Palestinians, however, have signaled their unwillingness to live alongside the Jewish residents of the West Bank and Gaza, and continue to demand that the territories be judenrein — free of Jews.

Apartheid or the greatest lie ever told?
Apartheid in South Africa was based on color separation. It was the whites (the “Europeans”)
versus the “non-Europeans” (Blacks, Coloreds [mixed race], Indians
Malays and Chinese). All suffered from the legalized deprivation decreed
by a South African government determined to impose white domination on
It is manifestly clear that
Israel has no color problem of any kind. Israel has brought in some
70,000 Ethiopian Jews and plans to absorb 30,000 more. All, including
Circassian, Druze, Kurds, Armenians, Beduin and other non-Jewish
citizens of the Jewish State, enjoy equal rights. Many Druze and Beduin
serve in Israel’s army.
There is no semblance of South
African apartheid here in democratic Israel. If ever a lie has been
incessantly repeated to damage Israel, this is a prime example. For as
the unlamented and unmourned Dr. Goebbels proved, nothing is more
effective than a constantly repeated big lie.
While many entries are
extensively repeated, a Google search credits Mahmoud Abbas with
approximately 19,000 apartheid references. Suffice to say he is an
active promoter of the big apartheid lie.
The apartheid lie attached to
Israel is one of several concocted by Palestinians to publicize their
cause. Readers and viewers are led by the nose because lies are so
effective in promoting their policies – the bigger the better.
Nevertheless the apartheid concept is totally inapplicable to Israel as
the following refutations abundantly make clear:
Coloreds, Indians, Malays and Chinese were legally classified as “Non-Europeans”
and did not have the vote in apartheid South Africa. Neither in
Municipal, Provincial nor Government elections.
Arab citizens, some 20% of the population, have always enjoyed equal
voting rights. Eleven Arabs sit in Israel’s Knesset.
Non-Europeans exclusively had to carry a “Pass Book”. (Identity
books were introduced for Europeans round about 1976.) Employers had to
sign the pass books monthly. Pass book infringements by blacks led to
jail sentences and often to deportation to the black homelands.
and legal residents of Israel carry an identity card as required by law.
Reservation laws kept non-Europeans from a wide range of jobs.

The way the Arabs use “Israeli
apartheid” one might think they were protesting because Israel does
not permit Arabs in their midst. Of course the very opposite is the
case. It is the Arabs who do not suffer with Jews in their midst.
The opposite is the reality. Many a Jew who has strayed into an Arab
city, or taken a chance on doing business there, has been cruelly
murdered. Israelis must not misinterpret the message as anything but a
Nazi Judenrein [ethnic cleansing of Jews] ideology.
Last but by no means least, we
must not overlook the use of “apartheid wall/fence” – the most
often repeated and deliberate misuse of the apartheid calumny.
The Arabs speak as though the
wall as covers the full length of Israel’s anti-terrorist barrier. The
unpalatable fact is that it does not. The barrier is 96 per cent fence
and 4 per cent wall. Walls are only erected to prevent terrorist sharp
shooters targeting Israelis living opposite built–up Arab areas.
It takes the most chutzpah
[nerve] imaginable to attach the South African apartheid label to
the democratic Jewish State of Israel. For the boot is truly on
the other foot. Unlike the twenty-two Judenrein Arab countries of
the Middle East, Israel is the only one which neither believes in nor
