    If it looks like apartheid and quacks like apartheid and smells like apartheid, then that's what it must be, and indeed it is apartheid. That's the use of the dreaded word 4 times. Not that it will shake the indifference of many Israelis, the settlers of course chiefly, or the blind deaf and dumb crowd out there in Diaspora-land who will not have a bad word said about Israel, when in this period it's pretty hard to find a good one. And lest the red-necks believe I'm somone LEFT of centre, or a post or anti Zionist, let me tell them all that I am none of those. I am a Zionist whose Zionism is challenged deeply by the swerve to the hard right my nation has taken. Using the A word in relation to activties of my nation in the damned West Bank, is tough enough. With the loyalty oath, the Lieberman Transfer speech at the UN, the deportation of 400 children, the segregation law and so much else, it's becoming harder to say we have no apartheid within Israel. Any more legislation like that - you know the kind of thing - roads for Arabs, seats on public transport for Arabs, employment in menial work for Arabs, road signs without Arabic, strict security checks for Arabs and their suspected sympathisers at airports, etc etc etc...what does all that look like?
