Why Israel is an Apartheid State



A Database of Discriminatory Laws in Israel

If there’s one thing that Zionist supporters hate, it is comparisons between Zionism and Apartheid.  Yet the truth is dawning on many people that discriminating against people because they are Jewish is no different than discriminating against them because they are not Jewish.  Refusing to allow Arabs to rent flats in Safed or ‘Jewish’ towns is no different from the Apartheid practices of South Africa.
 
The system of ID control whereby ID cards instantly identify who is and who is not Jewish is no different from the pass laws and control in South Africa in the days of Apartheid
 

Database of Israeli Discriminatory Laws
Tony Greenstein

There are more than 50 Israeli laws that discriminate against Palestinian citizens of Israel in all areas of life, including their rights to political participation, access to land, education, state budget resources, and criminal procedures. Some of the laws also violate the rights of Palestinians living in the 1967 OPT and Palestinian refugees.

You can also see Adalah's Brief on Discriminatory Laws and Bills Since 2009.

This database collects text, analyses, and legal action for present and proposed discriminatory laws in Israel and the OPT. Please explore:
