    http://www.masada2000.org/Apartheid-State.html 1. Blacks, Coloreds, Indians, Malays and Chinese were legally classified as ?Non-Europeans? and did not have the vote in apartheid South Africa. Neither in Municipal, Provincial nor Government elections. Israel?s Arab citizens, some 20% of the population, have always enjoyed equal voting rights. Eleven Arabs sit in Israel?s Knesset. 2. Non-Europeans exclusively had to carry a ?Pass Book?. (Identity books were introduced for Europeans round about 1976.) Employers had to sign the pass books monthly. Pass book infringements by blacks led to jail sentences and often to deportation to the black homelands. All citizens and legal residents of Israel carry an identity card as required by law. 3. Job Reservation laws kept non-Europeans from a wide range of jobs. No discrimination of this kind has ever existed in Israel?s democratic Jewish State. 4. There was free education for whites till matriculation. Not so for blacks whose educational prowess was strictly limited by an oppressive Bantu Education Act. All school going children in Israel are entitled to publicly subsidized education till matriculation. No racial distinctions whatever are made. 5.Only one university was established for Blacks in South Africa, at Fort Hare. In addition to several Arab universities which Israel established in the predominantly Arab areas, Arab students may study at any university in Israel. 6. Black-white sex was a serious jail time crime. Sex detectives were even employed to catch offending parties in flagrante delicto . Legal sex apartheid in democratic Israel? You must be joking. 7. Medical services for non-Europeans were both restricted and segregated. Arab citizens are members of all the major Medical Service Organizations and benefit equally from government subsidized medical services. 8. Hospitals were largely segregated or had segregated wards. White hospitals were on a par with any in the western world. But black hospitals were under funded, under staffed, and few. Ambulances were also segregated. A "white" ambulance could not take a black to hospital. Not the Israeli way. Israeli Arabs get the full treatment in all State hospitals

Too many Labour politicians cravenly adopted the anti-Semitic tropes and anti-Israel demonization they think will get them British Muslim votes, rather than standing up to the prejudice that exists in the community.
