Most Israelis and supporters of Israel don't have to confront the fact that they have imposed an apartheid regime on the West Bank, by indulging in the illusion that the situation in the West Bank is temporary. The settlements constitute "temporary" security measures. Otherwise they would be illegal under the Supreme Court's Elon Moreh decision, to the extent they are built on confiscated land. Of course since the Palestinians will "never" agree to recognize Israel or refrain from conflict against it, what was temporary becomes permanent. Thus is rationalized the military domination of another people in their own land without having to extend to them the political and civil rights of Israelis. Thus did the South Africa treat its blacks not as citizens of South Africa, but as ciizens of the phony "homelands" that were recognized by no other nation.
