What 'apartheid' looks like in Israel

Arabs accuse Israel of being an apartheid state. The accusation is part of the anti-Israel propaganda 'song' Arabs sing about their hated enemy, Israel.

For example, senior PLO official Hanan Ashrawi has demanded that the international community declare Israel to be an 'apartheid state' ("The 'Apartheid State' that Minorities keep struggling to get into", Stonegate Insitute, March 1, 2012). Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas--Israel's so-called 'peace-partner'--has said that "Israel is surrounding Jerusalem with an Apartheid wall ("Mahmoud Abbas is truly a man of his word", Thisongoingwar, February 29, 2012). As recently as last month, Abbas told the nations of the world (in a speech before the UN on September 26, 2014) that  Palestinians faced a future in a “most abhorrent form of apartheid” under Israeli rule (“US slams Abbas UN speech as 'offensive'”, i24 News, September 27, 2014).

Arab hate-enablers have their own Israel-is-Apartheid song. Some have declared that the State of Israel was founded upon Apartheid ("Israel’s founding a ‘crime against humanity,’ says South Africa’s ANC", Times of Israel, September 14, 2014). Nobel Peace Prize laureate Desmond Tutu has called on the Presbyterian Church (USA) to pass a series of resolutions condemning Israel as an apartheid state ("Desmond Tutu: U.S. Christians must recognize Israel as apartheid state", Haaretz, June 17, 2014). Anti-Israel advocates run an 'Israel Apartheid Week' every year, to delegitimize Israel by pressuring the Jewish state over its alleged "racism"  ("Trailer: Israeli Apartheid Week Coming To Theaters Near You", Arutz Sheva, February 14, 2014). The BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) Movement is built upon the premise of ‘Israeli Apartheid’ (the BDS Homepage,
From this drum-beat of Israel-is-Apartheid, you'd think Israel was, well, apartheid. Here, from a friend of mine, are pictures of what this so-called ‘apartheid’ actually looks like in Israel (to appreciate these pictures, please note that it is my understanding that Druze and Bedouin are Arab sub-minorities in Israel):




Many of these have been incorporated into a video on YouTube.



  They say a picture is worth a thousand words. How many words are 38 pictures worth?
As you can see from the pictures above, Israel is not apartheid. Arab countries, however, are apartheid.
The G-d of Israel has a Jewish Story He wants you to see. Arab hate is part of that Story. Arab lies are part of that Story. Non-Arab anti-Israel advocates who lobby for discrimination against Israel are part of that Story.
Will this hate, these lies and those who advocate to stigmatize, criminalize and delegitimize Israel become vehicles through which Biblical prophecy will be fulfilled?
Stay tuned.
