    Why exactly is this apartheid? Israel has many different types of visas and permits that are issued to different people. If a non Israeli citizen wants to enter Israel so they can pray does this mean we should also give them the right to get a job in Israel or should we issue different types of permit so one can come into the country because they want to work and the other can come into the country to pray? As they are not Israeli citizens and they do not live inside Israel the palestinians do not have the same rights as an Israeli citizen. The word to define this is not apartheid its BUREAUCRACY. Whilst your getting so high minded about the idea of Israel issuing permits for people to do different things then just look a little closer to home, you don't think that the US has different types of visas and permits granted for different purposes which gives their holders different rights. If I have a Green Card I have more rights than I would have if I was a tourist but I would still not have the same rights as an American citizen, even a naturalized American citizen doesn't have exactly the same rights as an individual born in America because they can't stand for the presidency etc. The only difference between Israel and America when it comes to the issuing of permits is Israel has to many different types and it needs to be streamlined.
