Israel: Apartheid?

Israeli Apartheid?

March 8, 2011
Saudi Arabia bans protests, Turkey locks up journalists,
Iran and Libya kill their opponents.
Egypt and Syria have also been killing  protesters and the audacity,
 a new flotilla is being planned to protest against Israel’s policies.
Haneen Zoabi, an Arab woman is an elected member of the Israeli Knesset
and has led anti-Israel protests.
Israeli apartheid?
Her actions would never be tolerated in any of the surrounding countries,
but Zoabi’s anti-government pieces are routinely published
 in main stream Jerusalem newspapers.

While Saudi Arabian women are forbidden to drive a car,
in Jerusalem, many Arab women take driving lessons
and sit on Egged buses in traffic jams on Agrippas Street with everyone.
