Mystery Deepens over Deadly Jerusalem Bus Bomb
Except for the fact that the West Bank GDP is growing at near double-digit rates and auto purchases are the highest in a decade, sure signs of Israel causing the Palestinians lives to be miserable.
Of course, there are people who will rationalize the idea of knifing a baby and his siblings to death in their beds to as 'leigitimate armed resistance'
These same people, who try to equate the decision by the Palestinians to launch rockets at Israeli civilians, with Israel's right to defend its citizens from such attacks, try to make the argument that Israelis "DESERVE" this violence by falsely claiming racism, in this case arguing that the Israeli government is an apartheid one.
Which of course is a lie. The reality is, Israel's government allows voting and participation by all ethnic groups, including Arabs, both Christian and Muslim. Arabs are members of Israel's courts, it's parliment, in its diplomatic corps, and executive cabinet. Israel's free-press, which includes Arab run news organizations provide for free speech. Arabs, both Christian and Muslim serve side by side in Israel, whether it is in the hospitals, where Arab doctors treat Jewish patients, and Jewish doctors treat, not only Arab patients, but Palestinians from the territories and other Arab states as well. But also in the IDF, they have the ability to serve, and do, under the same uniform and flag.
In terms of skin color, which is what Apartheid is based on, Israel not only accepted thousands of Ethiopians as Jews, during the decades when they were persecuted by their Muslim neighbors, but continues to see a stream of refugees flee the violence in Sudan, travelling through Muslim and African Egypt, braving gunfire from Egyptian border guards to flee to this supposed 'Apartheid' state. Someone must have forgotton to tell them about Israel's government.
When the so-called Humanitarians are screaming about the Palestinians, they should remember that these are the same people who handed out candy in celebration of the baby-killings of the Fogel family but two weeks ago.
