    Israeli law is enforced in the occupied territories. But the non-Jewish occupants of those occupied territories are not allowed to vote. Or in some cases, such as E Jerusalem and Golan Heights, they are only allowed to vote if they agree to such draconian conditions that almost none of them are able to agree to. If they could vote, the majority support for law would be much different, once you give the vote to the Pals and Bedouins in E. Jeruslam, W. Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights, Sheba Farms. (And for simplicity sake, I will not even get into the rights of those chased out of what is now Israel through terrorism and living in exile, and their children) So, what is your view.. Should Israeli law not apply in the occupied territories? Or should the occupanrs be allowed to vote? If you support democracy, these are the only two choices. Otherwise, you support a non-democratic apartheid regime.
