you are right that other nations have permanent resident laws governing a person's absence from the nation. But how many of those nations have DIFFERENT laws for people based on their race or religion? As Mr. Levy pointed out, a Jew can go off to the States or Australia or wherever to make his/her fortune and return anytime he/she desires with no negative consequences. Not so for the Arab. THAT is an Apartheid-like law.
