    @Mary Johnson How is this news? All you are doing is advertising for a student group. And you don’t even have the journalistic ability to come up with your own commentary, just copying/pasting CUAD language.

    @Daniel Cheren How is Israel “Apartheid” – In Israel, Arabs are lawyers, judges and Supreme Court Justices; they are Members of Parliament and Ministers; they serve in the Police, Fire Department and Military; they are actors, musicians, artists, sports figures and celebrities; they are Doctors, Accountants, Professors and businessmen.

    On the other hand, Palestinians seek a “Jew Free” Palestine.
    Palestinians deny Jews the right to pray on Jewish Holy sites claimed by Islam.
    Palestinians have a track record of desecrating Jewish Holy sites, as well as the ethnic cleansing of the ancient Jewish community of Hebron.

    And the “Apartheid Wall” that seems to figure so prominently in their protests was built because of Palestinian racist terrorism – where Palestinians were infiltrating into Israel to murder any Israeli they could simply because they presumed all Israelis to be Jews and all Jews to be somehow responsible for their discontent and therefore fair game to be killed.

    Finally, if you are looking for “Apartheid”, racism, and ethnic cleansing in the Middle East – you can see it – not in Israel, but in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Sudan, Egypt, Libya, and Turkey.
