New Palestinian Bus system…. Totally not segregation or anything…

New Palestinian Bus system…. Totally not segregation or anything…

The Palestinians who wish to travel into Israel for work are no longer allowed to sit with the Israelis after the Israeli “settlers” complained.  Its hard not to liken this to 1950’s America with the “separate but equal” fiasco. This brings me back to the movie that we are currently watching in class, Palestinians are treated like third class citizens and are given no rights.

 

Although Palestinians are currently being occupied, they are not allowed equality through the law. While the Israeli settlements are allowed to expand, Palestinian towns are denied construction permits. There’s two separate systems of education in place one for the Hebrew students and another that is termed “municipalities of the minorities”. The people are treated as third class citizens. Its getting to the point were its almost a cast system and we are talking about untouchables.

Its 2013. Get with the program.
