Most of the people trying their darndest to compare Israel to Apartheid South Africa have little idea what they're talking about. You need to make the distinction between Israel proper and the occupied territories. It's pretty evident that in the occupied territories, a good case could be made that apartheid exists. There's two systems of justice for two people, and this is indefensible in my opinion. However, in Israel proper, anybody comparing the two is egregiously misinformed or just plain inane. Sure, there's discrimination, but there's discrimination in any country, perhaps more so than in Israel, including in my own US of A. Arabs, Druze, and others in Israel have the same rights under the law as anybody else. Are their rights infringed upon? Sure, but these are problems to fix, not an excuse to dismiss the only democracy in the region besides Turkey as an "apartheid" regime.
