Israel Is Voting Apartheid

Israel Is Voting Apartheid

"There will be one certain result from Tuesday’s election: Around 100 members of the next Knesset will be supporters of apartheid. This has no precedent in any democracy.

With such a majority, it will be possible in the next Knesset to officially declare Israel an apartheid state."

Around 3 million Palestinians also live in the West Bank."

Protest closes Israel's 'apartheid road' through West Bank

"A new road in the West Bank that separates Palestinian and Israeli drivers was closed by protesters on Wednesday, before they were dispersed by Israeli police deploying teargas and stun grenades. Route 4370 is dubbed the “apartheid road” by some campaigners because of its 8-metre dividing wall of concrete and metal. The western side of the road is principally for Israelis, and the eastern side principally for Palestinians."
