    DEMOCRACY - all the time when there is a controversial policy its an issue of democracy, what exactly does democracy have to do with issues like detaining illegal immigrants? APARTHEID - Israel has problems but its not an apartheid state and anybody who calls it that is insulting the blacks of South Africa. Israel does have a culturally divided society and there are all the issues with the palestinians but thats not apartheid. FACISM - thats another buzz word growing in popularity. A nationalist policy like new immigrants being forced to wear an oath of loyalty ( something that is done in the US & Europe ) or a law banning the state funding of nakba events is hardly fascism. I notice one person here has said that this plan to lock up illegals is fascism, I would love to know how its a fascist policy to lock up people who have entered the country illegally until we have decided if we are going to deport them or let them stay. The alternative is letting them loose and never seeing them again making deportation impossible. So come on people enough with the buzz words.
