"Apartheid" exists today, in varying degrees, in many states in Western Europe, and certainly in Asia. The severity tends to correlate with the level of violence. The condition typically occurs when military security coexists with a population difficult to assimilate. The Tamils of Sri Lanka, who immigrated there centuries ago, and who invented suicide bombing, are in a position much like the Palestinians. But even the Walloons of Belgium often express their grievance at their second-rate status, and there are comparable situations in Northern Ireland, with the Catalans, with Guam, and with Puerto Rico. The Moslems of France also were recently heard from. All these experience de facto discrimination and suppression of nationalist aspirations. It's likely that the most practical solution is something like "Benelux," or Switzerland. Davos is quiet nowadays, though Switzerland once was wracked by war.
