Israel Apartheid Week or Islamic State Apartheid?

I was shocked a few years ago when I saw at York University they were having an Israel Apartheid Week. I could not believe what I was seeing since Israel is so far from apartheid as to almost be the exact opposite!

Now the JDL [Jewish Defense League] proposes a protest of the protest week called Anti-Islamic State Apartheid.

So is Israel or the Islamic states more apartheid-like?

What Was Apartheid in South Africa?

It can be defined as racial separation and discrimination, institutionalised by law in every aspect of everyday life, imposed by the white minority and derived from belief in white racial superiority.

So my question is where is there racial separation and discrimination in Israel? I was there in 2006 and heard the calls to prayer every morning and evening from mosques. I saw arab, Christian and Jewish stores and merchants.

So where is this hidden discrimination? Is it covered up in some non-tourist areas of Israel?

  • allows all faiths to build their houses of worship and worship freely
  • allows arabs [usually muslims] to run stores and live in the state of Israel
  • they are allowed to be hired as civil servants
  • all have equality under law
  • Jewish and Arab babies are born in the same delivery room, with the same facilities, attended by the same doctors and nurses, with the mothers recovering in adjoining beds in a ward.
  • In hospitals, Jews and Arabs alike are represented: One man's story. "The surgeon was Jewish, the anaesthetist was Arab, the doctors and nurses who looked after me were Jews and Arabs."
  • Jews and Arabs share meals in restaurants and travel on the same trains, buses and taxis, and visit each other’s homes.
  • Arabs have the vote
  • Palestinians are not oppressed on racial grounds like the blacks of South Africa [They may have to have more security clearances for obvious reasons if one recalls the suicide bombings and has knowledge of Palestinian rockets being fired into Israel daily for years with short breaks
  • The wall is often cited as being an example of apartheid. No. It is to protect ALL who live in the state of Israel from suicide bombers and it has worked.
Many more examples could be cited. However the ones mentioned give testimony to the fact that Israel is not based on keeping Arabs apart from Jews as the blacks in South Africa were from the whites.
That should be enough to show LACK of anything even close to the meaning of "apartheid".

Islamic States
Islam, by fiat, discriminates against women. Koran 4:11 says:

“Allah directs you in regard of your Children’s (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females…. These are settled portions ordained by Allah.”

Tabari IX:113: "Allahpermits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Koran.”

Tabari I:280 “Allah said, ‘It is My obligation to make Eve bleed once every month as she made this tree bleed. I must also make Eve stupid, although I created her intelligent.’ Because Allah afflicted Eve, all of the women of this world menstruate and are stupid.”

In this case Allah is half right. Women do menstruate. But He is also wrong. Extensive studies by impartial psychologists provide unequivocal documentation of the fact that women are equal in intelligence to men.

  • If a Muslim woman is murdered, her beneficiary is entitled to one-half dyyeh – blood money, or compensation – as that of a murdered Muslim male.
  • A woman’s testimony in the court of law is worth one-half that of a man.
  • A woman must provide four witnesses to substantiate her claim of being raped.
  • A man can divorce his wife by simply saying to her, “I divorce you,” three times.
  • A divorced woman is entitled to a miserly compensation and automatically forfeits her rights to her children.
  • Women are barred from the lucrative and powerful cast of clergy.
  • Husbands are entitled to punish their wives corporally.
  • Men are allowed to have four wives at any one time and as many concubines as they desire and can afford.
  • Saudi Arabia, the custodian of “true Islam” imposes a raft of restrictions on women such as: women are not allowed to drive; they are not permitted to leave the country without accompaniment or explicit permission of their male kin; they are barred from most government jobs and much, much more.
  • Among other Muslims, such as the Taliban and the Pashtun of Afghanistan-Pakistan region, women are barred from education and not even allowed to leave the house unless accompanied by a male kin.
  • Since education, particularly professional education, is often denied to women in many Islamic societies, there is scarcity of women physicians and male doctors are often forbidden to treat women patients.
Such is the plight of women under Islam. There is hardly the need to provide an exhaustive list of Islamic misogyny to qualify it as a shameful, discriminatory and oppressive religious apartheid.

Will Muslim women ever break out of their bondage and claim their rightful place among emancipated non-Muslim women? It is the long sub-humanized Muslim women who must discard Islam and claim their equal human rights. Muslim men will resort to every means to maintain their privileged position and their cruel dominance over women, citing the Koran as justification. Any document that consigns one half of the human race to second class status is null and void.

Sounds to me like Islamic states treat women as second-class citizens like the whites treated the blacks in South Africa. Very apartheid-like.
  • Even the most “mainstream” and “peaceful” Islam is guilty of systemic apartheid. Just a couple of examples should suffice for now.
  • On December 16, 2006, Egypt’s Highest Administrative Court decreed that in order to receive an Identity Card, only Islam, Judaism, or Christianity must be entered on the application. No one of any other religion or no religion at all is permitted to list his belief or even leave it blank. Without the identity card, just about all the rights of citizenship are denied to minorities such as Baha’is, Hindus, and Buddhists. People are forced to choose between falsely claiming an approved religion and depriving themselves of just about all rights of citizenship such as jobs, education and medical care.
  • In the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Islamic law denies dyyeh to any and all people who are not Muslims or members of the only other three recognized religions. Every one of the 500,000 members of the Baha’i Faith can be murdered without the family receiving justice or compensation. As a matter of fact, the Islamic government itself has executed Baha’is for the sole “crime” of being Baha’is and has demanded that the innocently murdered person’s family reimburse it for the bullets they used to execute him.
  • The Islamic Republic of Iran’s President’s repeated threat to wipe out Israel from the map is ignored by some as an empty rhetoric of an unhinged fanatic. Yet, Ahmadinejad’s threats are far from the baseless saber-rattling of a zealot. Ahamadinejad’s government has recently ordered the comprehensive gathering of data regarding the Baha’is and all their activities. This order is deeply troubling, since it is almost a replica of what another fascist, Hitler, did before launching the genocide of six million Jews and some four million other “undesirables”. Ahamadinejad is an Islamofascist whose aim is to have a practice run on the Iranian Baha’is before embarking on destroying the Jews and other “undesirables,” following in the footsteps of the German fuehrer.

Islamic societies shamelessly practice all the sanctioned injustices listed in the U.N. charter on apartheid (see paragraphs 2 and 3, above). Islam is religious apartheid. And apartheid, by universal agreement, is an inhumane, unjust and condemned practice.

  • Islam cruelly practices its oppressive dogma on minorities in its lands; it is in clear violation of the provisions of Universal Human Rights. Ominously, Islam is encroaching in the traditionally non-Islamic parts of the world and doing all it can to impose its horrid doctrine on others.
  • It is for this present and imminent danger that the free people of the world must rise and do all they can to preserve their birthright of liberty. Muslims in the non-Islamic lands may seem harmless, and many of them indeed are harmless. Yet, Islam compels its leaders to uphold and promote its tenets at any and all costs to anyone. It is for this reason that on the one hand the Islamic governments sign the U.N. Charter that condemns apartheid, and on the other hand, these governments violate every provision of it when they are in power.
Islamofascism, the enemy of liberty, is at the gate. It is the duty of every free human to defend freedom by defeating the enemy.

So these are just a few of the comparisons of Israel and Islamic states to apartheid.

If you did not know before what apartheid actually was, hopefully you do now. But if you continue to call Israel and not the Islamic states purveyors of apartheid then you are hiding your eyes and ears from truth.

So when are we going to see


These are some of the signs that could register a TRUTHFUL protest unlike the IAW farce.
