A pen pal writes on the [https://www.google.com/search?q=%22apartheid+slur%22] 'apartheid slur':

Facts of racism in the area and the intolerance of casting fear as "racist"

A Jew cannot buy or rent in an Arab settlement. And even in those mixed communities where there was a Jewish minority, Peki'in village is an example where, Jews fled the terror of Arab racism.

That Jews fear going through certain Arab villages, is practical fear.

Arabs targeting Jews, as identifying them as Jews, is sheer Arab racism and Islamists bigotry.

That certain leadership in Arab political and religious sphere incite against Jews is not rare.

The Palestinian Authority's death sentence for anyone who sells real estate to a Jew. And moderate (relatively to genocidal Hamas) Mahmoud Abass' 2013 open declaration of no Jew to be in future [judenrein, ethnic cleansed] "palestine" state, now that is raw racism.

Denying genuine worry of Israelis and casting it as just intolerance, is in and of itself intolerance. No matter if it's Arab racism by Arab "activists" including bigoted BDS pushers abusing Human Rights org. [Enter Omar Shakir, et al] casted in "human rights" phrases/frames or anti-Jewish Haaretz/Btselem's Hagai El-Ad who by focusing its denouncements in the international arena and ignoring real human rights abuses on the Arab side (whether Arab leadership inside Israel or "palestinian") and Arab racism against Jews, proves the campaign's real agenda - defamation, at any costs, truth or not, misrepresentation or what have you. Not progress.

Despite latest "drama," nothing major has really changed since 2006, when Jimmy Carrter (who, besides misrepresentations and white washing Arab violence) admitted that Israel is an equal democracy for all but his "criticism" was about "territories", plus the language was to "provoke debate."...

Is is not "apartheid" when calculations is risk assessment.

Nor is there a difference between the "race" of Israeli-Arabs and "palestinian"-Arabs.

Nor is it "apartheid" when Arab representation is very powerful in all areas, including in Knesset.
