Israel NOT an apartheid state
Jun 6, 2013
Reverend Kenneth Meshoe, member of the South Africa Parliament, recently expressed ongoing frustration with accusations that Israel is an apartheid state, calling such claims an insult to what his own nation went through.
Dr. Meshoe visited San Francisco Calipornia around the time that American universities, especially in California, were swarming with anti-Israel propagandists whose new favorite ploy is to label Israel as a practitioner of apartheid against the Arabs of the region.

As a black South African who lived under apartheid, Israel cannot be compared to apartheid in South Africa.
Those who make the accusation expose their ignorance of what apartheid really is.
South African apartheid was a legal system of segregation and oppression based on skin color.
Black people such as himself could not vote, freely travel, or hold high government positions.
Furthermore, they were subjected to segregation everywhere from pubic restrooms to schools to hospitals.


In my numerous visits to Israel, I did not see any of the above.
Black, brown and white Jews and the Arab minority mingle freely in all public places, universities, restaurants, voting stations and public transportation. All people have the right to vote. The Arab minority has political parties, serves in the Israeli parliament (Knesset) and holds positions in government ministries, the police force and the security services. In hospitals, Palestinian patients lie in beds next to Israeli Jews, and doctors and nurses are as likely to be Israeli Arabs as Jews. None of that was legally permissible in apartheid South Africa!


Meshoe said it was slanderous and deceptive  to make such accusations against Israel as doing so trivializes the word apartheid, minimizing and belittling the magnitude of the racism and suffering endured by South Africans of color.  Israel is a model of democracy, inclusion and pluralism that can be emulated by many nations, particularly in the Middle East.

LEFT is how Muslims depict Israel.  The Truth is, Muslim cowards hide behind women and children.
Muslims fire missiles on Israel, kill Jews, dont believe Israel should defend itself.
