USA Colleges Backing Apartheid Week Against Israel Again

Nadene Goldfoot
The United States academia has still been beating their drums against Israel by doing the following.

 "At least 35 col­lege cam­puses in the U.S. are par­tic­i­pat­ing in IAW this year, the ninth con­sec­u­tive year that the pro­gram has been held in cities around the world. Most of the events in the U.S. were for­mally sched­uled to take place March 4–8 but some are stretch­ing into next week as well (due to var­i­ous university-related sched­ul­ing con­flicts).

 IAW events this year have pri­mar­ily included anti-Israel speak­ers, mock “apartheid walls” and check­point dis­plays on cam­pus, and screen­ings of two crit­i­cal of Israel films,  the Oscar award-nominated “5 Bro­ken Cam­eras” and a more extreme film called “Roadmap to Apartheid.” “Roadmap to Apartheid” is nar­rated by The Color Pur­ple author Alice Walker and analo­gizes Pales­tin­ian refugees to Jews in the War­saw Ghetto and par­tially con­dones ter­ror­ism as a “symp­tom” of the conflict."

Anyone who thinks that Israel practices Apartheid is either deaf, blind or an idiot.  If anything it is the most un-apartheid state in this whole world.  America was the first country to be a magnificant melting pot.  Israel is even more so.  In the nearly 65 years (will be on May 14, 2013) of existence, more  people from countries all over the world have immigrated there than America ever saw.  You name it; white, black, brown, tan, beige, ecru, every color under the sun of people who just happen to be Jewish.  That's what Israel is all about.  If you need to be told why, you haven't read any history about the Jews.

Israel also has 1.4 million Arab citizens that are not Jewish in the country.  Most are Muslims, but there are a few Christians as well.  I love the Druze, who are not accepted by the Sunni or Sh'ia Muslims, but who are fantastic citizens and who love Israel and are fighting for it right along with the Jewish soldiers.  The only thing Israel does against Arabs is to not expect them to serve in the armed forces, but this may change.  Observant Jews attending Yeshivas have also been exempt from serving, and with the new coalition, may be serving, as they used to do.  Both women and men serve in the forces.  How un-apartheid can you get?  

Speaking of being Apartheid, has anyone paid attention to the Arabs' plans for Palestine?  It it to not have any Jews in their state.  Judenrein!  Now, who is planning to practice apartheid?   

So, professors, , you'd better start learning something other than propaganda such as what you're expousing.  You're no better than the early Nazis of Germany.  To you it's "cool" to take on this attitude, but speaking lies is not "cool."  

Do any of you see that Israel did not kill the producers of Broken Cameras or Roadmap to Apartheid?  They had the freedom to do this.  Did that happen with the producer of the movie or video about Islam?  I believe there'a a fatwa on his head.  It was the poorest made video I have ever watched.  4th graders could have done better.  Come to Israel and snoop for yourself and see if the producers were so accurate.  Possibly like you, they were more interested in making money and knew there's a market for hatred of Israel?   

You just happen to be picking on people who have been the scapegoats of the world for over 2,000 years.  Do you not realize that Israel was planned by Chaim Weizmann and his pals to be a perfect utopia?  These Zionists were well educated people of their day who were tired of being beaten up for being Jewish.  The number one rule in Judaism is a Golden one; Don't do to others what you don't want to be done to you.  So do you really think that Jews would go apartheid?  

Apartheid!  Do you realize that Jews were originally turned away from entering  America just because they were Jewish?  Go read your history books.  You're spouting off the same old same old anti-Semitism we keep on hearing in different forms.   How can anyone condone terrorism?

  1. "Anyone living in Israel knows that Arabs are employed by and receive service at all government offices, study at all universities, including 800 Arab students at Ariel University in Samaria, are found in the legal system as judges, serve as IDF officers and soldiers as Members of the Knesset.

    The latest claims of segregation were leveled against Israel in relation to buses coming out of Arab areas in Judea and Samaria which were designated for Arabs only. These buses enable Arab laborers coming into Israel to ride the bus at low costs, not having to rely on hitch-hiking or private and expensive services.

    Local Arabs who used the buses have praised the new service. Chaim Levinson, a Haaretz reporter, writes that thanks to this reform, thousands of workers who were previously exploited by private services have finally received professional and orderly services provided by the State of Israel." exerpt from Jewish Press
