usually mr. eldar criticizes israel when she doesn't obey (in his opinion) to this or that universal convention. however, now suddenly he demands indirectly that israel shall violate some of these conventions by complaining that israel uses "separate areas and separate laws". he even goes so far to use this "argument" as a justification for a comparison between israel and the south african apartheid regime. however, the situation of a state like south africa during the apartheid regime cannot be compared to the situation of an "occupied territory" like the westbank since usually to "occupied territories" there apply different laws based on this or that convention (e. g. the hague convention or the geneva convention). such the geneva convention says, among others, that the laws of the occupied power shall remain effective and shall be observed by the occupying power. when israel uses different laws in the westbank it's therefore no apartheid but observing the article of the geneva convention. according to the geneva convention it's also allowed to establish "safety zones" (mr. eldar's "separate areas") in "occupied areas". it's disappointing that mr. eldar does not inform correctly about these facts but instead conceals them and such decries israel.
