Israel an apartheid state? A majority of Jews say yes

24 October, 2012

Russia Today

A majority of Israeli Jews admit they are living in an apartheid state, a recent survey claimed. Many also believed that Palestinians should be denied the right to vote, and suggested that Jewish citizens should be given preferential treatment.
Some 500 Jewish adults took part in the survey, answering questions put together by a group of civil rights activists and academics, Haaretz newspaper reported on Tuesday. The survey’s findings revealed that 39 percent of respondents believe there is a ‘slight’ form of apartheid in the country, while 19 percent admit that there is ‘heavy’ apartheid.

A different question suggested that the number of those in favor of ethnic segregation is higher, with 74 percent of those surveyed in favor of separate roads for Jews and Arabs in the West Bank.
On the contentious issue of the West Bank, 38 percent of respondents wanted to annex the territories with settlements, and 48 percent opposed that policy. A followup question on voting rights for Palestinians saw 69 percent of respondents in favor of denying 2.5 million of Palestinians the vote if West Bank territories were annexed.
More than a half of those questioned said Jews should be given preference over Arabs when applying for jobs in the government sector. And slightly under half favored legalized discrimination of Arabs, saying that the state should “treat Jewish citizens better than Arab ones.”
The term ‘apartheid’ emerged in South Africa in the late 1940s, when the country’s ruling National Party introduced a policy of strict segregation and the racially based denial of human rights.
Under apartheid, black South Africans were largely disenfranchised, and forced to use separate beaches, buses, hospitals, schools and universities. Mixed marriages were denied and even subjected to persecution.

The survey also revealed that people of ultra-religious views demonstrated more discriminatory attitudes, with 82 percent saying Jews should be given preferential treatment over Arabs. Secular responders generally expressed more pluralistic views.
In its report, Haaretz claimed that the survey was initiated by the New Israeli Fund, a US-based NGO. But the NIF denied any involvement, saying the poll “was not commissioned or sponsored or in any way related to the New Israel Fund,” but set up by Goldblum Fund, an organization with which it had only indirect links.

The Israeli press generally reacted with outrage to the results, questioning the survey’s methodology and its coverage in Haaretz.
“The Haaretz article acknowledged that the survey conductors say perhaps the term ‘apartheid’ was not clear enough to some interviewees,” The Times of Israel said on Tuesday. The newspaper also noted that the reporting on the survey results and the followup opinion piece were both written by Gideon Levy, “a Haaretz columnist known for fierce criticism of Israeli policies regarding the Palestinians.”
The Jewish Chronicle lashed out at Levy, saying he “deliberately fed the international media a skewed and biased reading of a poll, in order to promote his treachery.”

I'm inclined to believe it is about ideology Petera , rather than genetics.

Somebody is teaching this Jews from young age to hate anybody who is not one of their own, somebody is guilty in same way that somebody thought Nazi Germans to hate anybody who is not Aryan.

we have two extreme examples of pathological hate and intolerance in a case of Nazi Germany and apartheid Israel

this are two sides of same coin if you ask me.

People are born in more or less same conditions but what will become of them depend on environment mainly.

Polution of environment in Jewish society and culture is at a highest level in history , according to this poll they don't see a problem with apartheid , they see it as normal.

when sick become normal than I usually think about Senilca , he encourage abnormal , perverse and selective human rights.

But for how long can that be?

Nazi Germany or S.African apartheid for that matter  didn't last forever either, there is limit to orgy of injustice history teach us again and again and again..............

Be that as it may it doesn’t' affect me in any way but I do not like when they scream anti-Semitism any time somebody step on their foot.

Problem I have with this kind of attitude and ideology is damage they do to the world, influence this ideology have over Christian culture and hemisphere is rather impressive.

how could such a small obviously sick group get so much power and use it for evil things like wars all over the planet?

who is to be blamed?

Russia, China or India?

well yes between others BRICS too are guilty for not standing up for justice and against apartheid, they should be all shamed............there is no innocent countries in all of this.

A prominent analyst says the brutal Israeli regime is “creating slow genocide” in the besieged Gaza strip, where they intend to “wipe out the Palestinians.”

“They are now not allowing desalination plants in and water purification plants in and without water you cannot live and the UN report stated that by 2016 that the water in Gaza will be undrinkable and by 2020 the aquifer will be beyond repair,” said Derek Graham a pro-Palestine Irish activist in a Wednesday interview with Press TV.

The Israeli regime denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.

“The UN recently issued a report which was very alarming, probably you have all that I have accounted and that was the fact that Gaza is going to be unlivable by the year 2020. It is very evidence that this five year old siege is crippling all Gazans and every aspect and facets of their lives especially when it comes to, for example, medicine and lack of it,” he added.

On October 20, Israeli forces intercepted Estelle and escorted the vessel to the port of Ashdod. The Tel Aviv regime forces also detained the peace activists. It was the latest of more than a dozen ships that had tried to break the blockade since 2010.

He also pointed out that the Israeli regime has tested illegal weapons on the coastal enclave, which “should not be used in civilian areas but yet the Israelis use them with impunity. It is unjust and they are allowed to do this and get away with it because they have the Americans backing of what they do.”

Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
