There is no such thing as Israel as an apartheid state and here is why. You can't have it both ways. If one says that Israel is an apartheid state, then you are saying that the west bank is part and parcel of Israel. But you say its not (I'm willing to bet you don't think so). If ISrael is an apatheid state, then why do I have an arab doctor, dentist, lawyer, MK etc......? Why do I see Arabs driving better cars than me? The answer is because Israel is not an apatheid state! The best you can say is that ISrael employs aprtheid type policies in the west bank only. But if you say that Israel is like South Africa, then that means the west bank is part and parcel of the state of Israel and know one says or agrees to that. You can't have it both ways. WHat is it? Is the West Bank part of ISrael or not? Please be consistent and intellectually honest with your logic.
