Israel: What is the truth about the hate-propaganda against Israel of Apartheid?
#1
There is no evidence of any “Apartheid” in or by, Israel. While some individuals in any country may unfortunately be racist, there is no evidence of any general racism in, or by, Israel. Those making false-allegations against Israel of “Apartheid” and/or “racism”, insult the reader’s intelligence by typically-providing:
No detail, no objective-sources; zero evidence.
 
“Palestinian” Arab falsehood-propaganda comparisons with South African Apartheid: South African Apartheid was perpetrated by colonialists upon indigenous Peoples. The Jewish people (Jew=citizen of Judah - Judaism is both an ethnicity as well as a religion) are the indigenous people of their ancestral homeland of Israel (below) with unbroken presence there since Biblical times:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographi...e_(region)
 
Israel is Re-established within the Jewish ancestral homeland. The Jewish people have had previous sovereign states in the land of Israel, for example - Map of the post-Biblical Jewish Hasmonean Kingdom of Judah (aka Judea) including: West Bank, Gaza, and Golan Heights, capital (what is now EAST) Jerusalem / “Old City”; between 110 BCE / 754 BH and 63 BCE / 706 BH:

The only example of Apartheid / racism is in the areas controlled by the “Palestinian” Arabs who put to death any Jew that they find near there:

Clarification of the meaning of the term “apartheid”:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apartheid
 
“Palestinian” Arab propaganda falsely-claims that since Israel retains sovereignty of the autonomous “Palestinian Territories” (due to “Palestinian” Arab breach of the Oslo Accords), that this amounts to evidence of Apartheid; falsely-equating them with “Bantustans”. However it constitutes no such evidence since the “Palestinian” Arabs agreed to their autonomy under the Oslo Accords: No one forced the “Palestinian” Arabs into signing the Accords, by which they tricked Israel into granting them autonomy of 40% of the West Bank and the whole of Gaza, yet afterwhich they: Continued terrorism and in falsely-claiming the ALL the land of Israel while deceiving the world they seek a two-state solution.
 
The “Palestinian” Arabs could “upgrade” their autonomous status by concluding a peace treaty with Israel, but have this “little-difficulty” namely, that they:
Seek the destruction of Israel, falsely-claim ALL the land of Israel, and seek the expulsion or murder of all its Jews. This is all clear from what is taught by the Palestinian education system and from the “Palestinian National Charter”.

Quote:To proclaim that Israel is an “apartheid state” is to undermine and trivialize the harsh and actual struggles many blacks went through during that dark time of human history. These are the words of many South Africans who would also concur that Israel is not an “apartheid” state.
 
Arabs have the right to move freely, vote, obtain an education, work in prominent positions, receive world-class health care, own land and speak freely. Blacks in South Africa had none of these rights.
Regardless of the unfounded criticisms, Israel will still strive in the face of growing adversity. Those who seek to delegitimize, malign and deprecate Israel have lost their moral compass.
1.  All people living in Israel have full equal rights.
 
There are no inferior or second-class citizens, unlike non-whites in South Africa or minorities in Islamic or Arab countries. Moreover, Arabs occupy senior positions on the Israeli police force, the Knesset and the Israeli judiciary. For example, Salim Joubran, who currently serves on the Israeli Supreme Court, is a Christian Arab. South Africans living under apartheid could only dream of obtaining these types of positions.
Ishmael Khaldi, an Islamic Bedouin, is currently a diplomat in the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Majalli Wahabi (Druze) was the acting president of Israel in 2007. These are just a few examples out of the many minority groups holding prominent positions in Israeli society.
2.  An Arab judge, George Karra, sentenced an ex-Israeli president Moshe Katsav to prison for seven years.
 
When an Arab judge sentences a former Israeli president to jail—this is truly a testament to Israel’s equality amongst all citizens, regardless of race or ethnicity.
3.  In 1953, [in South Africa] the Bantu Education Act was passed.
 
This separated blacks from whites in the South African educational system. The [then South African] government created a new curriculum for black people in which they were taught skills related to manual labour and serving in their Bantustans. In Israel, citizens are given equal opportunity in the workplace and educational department as evidenced by the fact that there are Palestinians and Arabs in Israeli universities who both study and teach as professors.
Today in Israel there are hundreds of Arab schools. Furthermore, education in the Palestinian areas of the West Bank is controlled by the Palestinian Authority. Courts, laws, taxes, police etc. are also under PA jurisdiction in the majority of the West Bank.
4.  Incitement to racism is a criminal offence in Israel.
 
This is the polar opposite of apartheid in South Africa, whose government specifically passed incendiary racist legislation.
5.  Arabs and Israelis receive the same treatment in hospitals.
 
The Hadassah Medical Organization which operates two hospitals in Jerusalem, was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize due to its push for peace in the Middle East and its equal treatment of Palestinians and Israelis. Furthermore, Arab and Israeli children are born amongst each other in the same hospitals.
Even during Israeli-Palestinian conflicts, Palestinians receive top-of-the-line treatment in Israeli hospitals. During apartheid, blacks were specifically given limited access to health care.
6.  Non-whites in South Africa had separate amenities.
 
These include hospitals, beaches, buses, restrooms, drinking fountains and even designated park benches to sit on. None of this discrimination is prevalent in Israel and a law prohibits discrimination in public places.
7.  Israeli Arabs have their own political parties in the Knesset—some of whom are Israel’s harshest critics.
 
The Joint List is an example of this. They received 13 seats in the 2015 Israeli election. Furthermore Arabs have equal voting rights, whereas coloured people during apartheid were not allowed to participate in the political process.
8.  Arab citizens are allowed to seek redress through the courts and government if they feel they have been wronged.
 
Arab citizens also receive trial based on the facts, not ethnicity. This is nothing compared to apartheid South Africa, where discrimination was authorized from the highest position in the government.
9.  Arabs in Israel have more fundamental rights than other Islamic and Arab countries in the Middle East.
 
Ironically, they have more rights than they do in the Gaza Strip or the West Bank.
10.       In Israel, there are 1.6 million Arab citizens integrated within Israeli society.
 
They make up 20 per cent of Israel’s population. There was no such integration in South Africa. Furthermore, according to a poll done by Harvard University, 77 per cent of Arab citizens living in Israel would rather live there than any other country in the world. If these citizens were experiencing “apartheid,” why are so many of them supportive of Israel?

”Palestinian” Arab propaganda false-complaints of:
“racism” / “persecution” / “discrimination” / “oppression”/ “(mis) treatment” / “being treated as 2nd class”, in reality is Palestinian frustration at Israeli security measures for reducing Jewish casualties resulting from the Palestinian anti-Jewish war of ethnic-hatred, where the Palestinians target Israeli Jewish civilians as policy including children (see below).
 
Once the “Palestinian” Arabs had tricked Israel into giving them autonomy of part of the West Bank and the whole of Gaza under the Oslo Accords, the “Palestinian” Arabs since:
Do not sincerely negotiate a peace treaty, falsely-claim ALL of Israel, and attack Israeli Jewish civilians including children (see below).
No wonder anti-Semites display such emotional-support for the “Palestinian” Arabs !
 
The “Palestinian” Arabs cynically whitewash their anti-Jewish hate-war as:
“uprising”, “defence”, “desperation”, “struggle”, “resistance”:

Apartheid is the hallmark of colonialists in South Africa only. To misuse this word for describing Israeli affairs would be the equivalent of recognizing Dutch and British colonialists as diaspora Dutch and British persons returning to South Africa, since it is biologically impossible for both colonialists to have been diaspora, unless one takes into account the theory that we all originated from the African continent. In that case, everybody on this planet would have the right to stake a claim on Africa.

Nope, the funds are mostly coming from Israel's monthly payment to the PA which is around  $240 Million. In 2021 the PA only received $183 Million out of the $1.2 Billion external countries said they would send. The UNRWA is expected to only get 40% of their 2022 funding. Further 2022 funding is expected to have transparency by bypassing the PA and go to where it's designated to go to.

The "Pay for Slay" aka "Palestinian Authority Martyrs Fund", under-which the "Palestinian" Arabs are paid a reward-“pension” to murder Israeli Jewish civilians including children, does not come from the tax money remitted by Israel to the "Palestinian Authority" aka "Fatah":

Part of the funding to the "Palestinian" Arabs is French and German government money who launder it through the “European (Union) Commission”, as: “humanitarian aid” (with zero proof of any such need), while the other major source is United States funding to the "Palestinian" Arabs, apparently to appease the "Progressive" faction and others, within the U.S. Democratic Party.

The “European Union” bankrolls the “Palestinian” Arabs:

“How are we helping? In 2020, the European Union is providing €23.7 million [EXR. Jan 31, 2021, USD $28,765,875] in humanitarian funding for Palestinians ... including funds to address [the ...] coronavirus.”
[The E.U. paid the “Palestinian” Arabs €22.5 million in 2019 when there was no coronavirus!]

In addition, EU investigators who visited Jerusalem and areas on the West Bank were unable to obtain information or speak to Palestinian officials about corruption in the areas they controlled.”
