    Let's get a few things straight re: racism: 1. Israeli Arabs live more freely in Israel than they would in extremist Arab countries re: gender and religious apartheid. 2. Palestinians are not Israelis. There's no "racism". 3. The suggestion that hatred of the Arab league for the West is all Israel's fault is just silly. A world war over a country the size of Jersey or a war over oil? Which makes more sense y'all? 4. Yea Israel used a lot of force in Gaza, count 'em, 10 000 rockets into South Israel! Just because they aren't killing anyone doesn't mean they're not trying!! 5. The issue of "apartheid" has nothing to do with the wall as a barrier between Israel and Gaza/WB. The issue is that the wall separates Palestinians in the West Bank and there are rights in the occupied territories that are not afforded to Palestinians. There's nothing wrong with building a wall on a border. If the US built one on the border with Canada that wouldn't be apartheid. 6. I've run out of things to say.
