Israel's Technion University Segregates Students in Dormitories

Apartheid?  Perish the thought

The Technion is the oldest university in Israel.  It was established in 1912 and is a scientific university.

It is no surprise that it segregates students in its dormitories.  My understanding is that this is common practice at all Israeli higher educational institutions.  Certainly it is the case at the religious university of Bar Ilan in Tel-Aviv.

Listen to the video and see how Apartheid in Israel operates and how it is justified.  The excuses are that it takes care of students preferences.  They have the 'right' to be with their own and then just imagine if such a facility existed in British universities.  What if a student wanted to be only with only white students.  Or maybe only with students who weren't Jewish.  Imagine the uproar.  But in Israel this is normal practice in higher education.
