71. Singling Israel out...

When I was reading yr post about how you only object when it's about Israel because Israel is what yr interested in made me think of the many accusations from 'supporters' of Israel I've seen that people who criticise Israel are singling Israel out because they don't complain more about <insert name of other issue here>. We're not talking about the use of the term around the world. I was talking about it being aimed at ME states and the Palestinians...

I've always said that Israel's policies in the West Bank are reminiscent of apartheid, and nothing I've seen since has changed my view on that. When there's two different legal systems where Israelis are under Israeli law and Palestinians under military law, where roads are segregated, where moving Palestinians from their homes and land to make way for Israelis, that's ugly stuff, and is reminiscent of apartheid. While Israel/Palestine and South Africa differ in some ways (eg Israel is occupying territory that isn't part of Israel and the apartheid style practices don't happen in Israel itself, while South Africa was internal to SA), the segregation, the laws and rules that discriminate against one group of people, and other things like that make what Israel does in the Occupied Territories carry a very negative feeling, and I'm not sure why anyone would expect people to have warm fuzzy feelings about what is a very ugly practice towards the Palestinians in the West Bank...
