The Israeli form of apartheid is distinct from that of South Africa. It is nonetheless a form of partheid. Israel itself is an ethnocracy in which non-Jews are not euqal, cannot be equal to Jews. Religion is the defiing factor in defining full citizenship. There is a veneer of democracy but it is in all aspects partial and the element of ethnos overides every other consideration in civic life. The idea of transfer, a form of state sponsored ethnic cleansing has received legitimacy in the current government. Security, that overarching zionist euphemism for blatantly racist policies, is offered as justification. As for the occupied territories, the inequalities are such and the land policy so transparent that is is little different from South African apartheid. Hence, Israel is indeed a racist, aprtheid state that justifies its racism with bogus security arguments that have been proven to be nothing but a sham for what the government of Israel is doing in Israel and Palestine.
