Apartheid is simply one ethnic group using laws and force to subjugate others and make them 2nd class citizens. It is one step up from slavery and several down from democracy. Is Israel an apartheid state? * 711,00 Arabs were driven out, none were allowed to return * Jews who have never lived there have the right of return, Arabs who have don't * Building permits are easy for Jews, impossibly fraught for Arabs * Arab homes can be bulldozed on a whim, Jewish ones never * Arabs can be cleansed from anywhere in the West Bank and the land mysteriously turns into building plots for Jews * The racial majority wants to ban commemoration of the Nakba while celebrating the birth and triumph of the Jewish state, * It also wants the minority to swear allegiance to the ethnicity and religion of the majority And on and on. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then... Israel is prima facie an ethnic-supremacist, apartheid nation par excellence. No argument there.
