Israeli Education Ministry Approves New 'Whites Only' Settlement SchoolSalem-News.com
You have to wonder what the Southern Poverty Law Center has to say about this one...
(IMMANUEL, Occupied Palestine) - Several months ago, a religious school in the illegal Israeli settlement of Immanuel was criticized for segregating white Jewish students from non-white Jewish students in classes.
Originally, the school was fined for this policy of racial segregation, because the school was state funded.
Now, the Israeli education ministry has agreed with the white parents' request to allow the school to continue with its racial discrimination under private funding.
There is no law preventing racial discrimination by private organizations, even schools, in Israel.
The Israeli court has interpreted these laws to also apply to illegal West bank settlements, like Immanuel, which are located in areas that are supposed to be under Palestinian control.
The Palestinian Authority does not allow racial discrimination, but due to the Israeli military occupation of the Palestinian Territories, it has no authority over the area in question.
74 white girls who have been studying in a building next to the school will now be allowed to study in whites-only classrooms that are privately funded, as their parents claim they do not want their girls to study in racially-mixed classrooms.
Israel is the only nation with apartheid laws that is accepted as a full ally by the United States and other nations.
In fact the population of Israel has been discriminating openly and often viciously, since the inception of the Jewish state in 1947.
Arabs and other non-Jews are literally subjected to different laws; Palestinian children can be arrested at the age of eight years; jailed and regarded as a terrorist for throwing a rock at fully armed Israeli Defence Force soldiers.
It is a travesty of justice in the modern world that Israel's decades-long attempt to rid the land of native Palestinians has been allowed, approved and even funded.
