    No, it's the settlements that are like racial segregation in the U.S. Housing in the settlements is not available to everyone in the West Bank, but only to Jews. Palestinians need not apply, just like blacks in the US were excluded from white-only residential enclaves. And then there are the roads built for the settlers that Palestinians are forbidden from driving on, just because they are Palestinians. And then there's the Wall that is built to protect the settlers, and as a result of which Palestinians cannot do what farmers normally do, which is access their fields. And then there's the fact that a significant portion of the land on which settlements are built is actually private land belonging to Palestinians. So let's see: Palestinian land is stolen for the houses, Palestinians are forbidden to live in the houses or to drive on the roads or to access their fields, and the writer thinks that it's Jews who are the victims of apartheid????
