Reader comment on item: Debate about possible war between Israel and Hamas

Submitted by AHHH...no (United States), Dec 3, 2012 at 11:31

I am confused ... Even the guy on the left calling Israel an "apartheid" state is absurd. In Israel Proper, outside of the West Bank and Gaza, and Golan Heights, the arabs have party representation in the Knesset and more effective legal rights than arabs in any of its neighbors.

Maybe, just maybe, there are interior border controls and restrictions due to violence from the other side, and NOT some "apartheid" policy, since it would logically be extended to Israel proper. Again, "weak analogy," to South Africa, since, for example, blacks couldn't even have representation.
