the difference. Yes, there really is and was a big difference. Using the word apartheid only invokes South African history- a history that is nothing like Israel. Another article in Ha'arets mentioned route 505 as an apartheid road (which it never was), this particular road in this article is a dangerous road which has seen constant shoot and run fatales by radical extremists Palestinians against Jews travelling it. So let it be open yet please write about the next fatality in your paper. Using the word apartheid is wrong and not justified. Use the word segregated instead and then explain why it is so.
