Segregation equals apartheid

Machsomwatch (http://www.machsomwatch.org/en) describes itself as “ a movement of Israeli women, peace activists from all sectors of Israeli society, who oppose the Israeli occupation and the denial of Palestinians’ rights to move freely in their land.

In the above sense Israel acts like a democracy. There are marvelous Israeli resisters to the Occupation.The state knows that it must give the appearance of being a true democracy by minimally allowing such groups to exist. and hoping Europeans and Europeans are not watching too closely.

The overwhelming evidence however is that israel is indeed an apartheid state.This is  beyond dispute. Anybody unfamiliar with the lived reality can check a host of websites delineating this fact.Try this one  http://www.ifamericansknew.org/  or http://www.icahd.org/

Machsom recently published this horrifying (only to the uninitiated) opicture and commentary

Machsom

For all our non-Hebrew-reader friends,the yellow sign in front of the ferris wheel reads:

“Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays for Jews.Mondays and Wednesdays for Arabs.”

This sign  is in amusement park called Superland, in Israel (near Tel Aviv).One wag added a tagline in German: “Ordnung muss sein” or in plain English “Order must be maintained”

The signs of course are eerily familiar to the “whites only” which were ubiquitous  in South Africa and the southern USA.

It is fairly obvious segregation=apartheid.

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck…..
