Israel is an Apartheid State

News headlines: "Palestinian President tells African Union that Palestinians are determined to defeat Israeli Apartheid." They are referring to Mahmud Abbas here. Does anyone see anything wrong with this statement?

Forget the issue that the Palestinian nation was invented in 1968. It did not exist before that. Forget the fact that Israel was called Palestine for 2000 years, having been given that name by the Romans. This is 2000 years before there was a Palestinian. Look only at the statement that Abbas is determined to defeat Israeli Apartheid.

The so-called Palestinian President, also known as Abu Mazen has been President of the Palestinian National Authority since 15 January 2005. However his term ran out on 9 January 2009. He unilaterally extended his term for another year and continues in office even after that second deadline expired. Hamas does not recognize him but then again why should they. They have their own country. So, there is no Palestinian President but more a dictator but let us call him a President for now.

But he is calling Israel as an Apartheid nation. Does he know what he is talking about? What is Apartheid? It is Racism, pure and simple, or is it. Here are some simple examples of pure racism:

What do you expect from someone who is a well known Holocaust denier. Israel has allowed Arabs to live on Jewish land for decades including Abbas himself. Talking about biting the hand that feeds you.

Now let us take a closer look at what Apartheid is. It is a racist system of government against a specific race or people, in Israel's case against Arabs. It is obvious to you, if you have any intelligence, that the so-called Palestinian Authority is an Apartheid state, although it is not really a state. You cannot build a state while you are living on someone else's state. Let us take a look at Israel's Apartheid:

Wait a moment, an Arab represents Israel at the Eurovision, an Arab was the deputy speaker of the Knesset and at one stage acting President and an Arab is one of the leading professors at one of our universities! Where is the Apartheid that he is talking about?

Let me ask something else, in any Arab nation, could any Jew have the same rights?

Let me leave you with this: The current United States president, Barack Obama, is outwardly antagonist towards Israel and openly considers Israel a thorn in his side. If Israel is not around to protect you, will you still feel safe?
