In all honesty, I can’t deny the fact that there is apartheid in Israel, but the truth is that the restrictions are against Jews, not Arabs.
Not only are Jews/Israelis forbidden to enter sections of Israel administered by the P.A. but violence against those Jews/Israelis is excused/justified. I will copy the English on the sign for you, as it is written exactly:
“This Road leads To Area “A”
Under The Palestinian Authority
The Entrance For Israeli
Citizens Is Forbidden,
Dangerous To Your Lives
And Is Against The Israeli Law”
This is a threat of violence against Israelis. The policymakers responsible for the sign expect Israelis to be attacked and actually condone it. Attackers are not prosecuted; only Israelis who venture, whether intentionally or not, are.
A few days ago, a few dozen Breslover Chasidim entered the holy site of Joseph’s Tomb, which had been mentioned specifically in the Oslo Accords as a Jewish Holy Site that the P.A. was supposed ensure for Jewish worship. Not only were they attacked by the Aarbs, but after their rescue they were jailed by Israel.
Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir, who is representing 32 Breslov Jews who entered Joseph’s Tomb overnight in Shechem (Nablus) without permission from security forces, demands that police release them immediately.
The bus of worshippers was attacked by Arabs upon entering Shechem, who threw stones at it. The bus’ 60 passengers were rescued by IDF forces.
Several haredim were lightly wounded from the stoning, and were treated on site. 32 of the pilgrims were arrested.
“When leftist extremists, led by [poet and activist] Eliaz Cohen, entered Ramallah and were attacked, the police didn’t arrest them, didn’t touch the matter, and no one called them in for questioning,” Ben-Gvir recalled. “The feeling here is that the police discriminate again and again.” (Arutz 7)
We must cease this farce of an “occupation” and make all of the Land liberated in the 1967 Six Days War part of sovereign Israel!
The present policy strengthens and justifies Arab terror against Jews! It must be stopped!!!
