in response to reader comment: 2010, Arab, Omar Shakir still struggled w/ "apartheid" slur, pushed it as 'strategy,' now's abusing HRW position

Twisted Omar Shakir's choice of words, choice of facts, in his intentional blurring and 'salad,' to fit his bigoted campaign.
He wrote in his title (Apr 27, 2021): — 'Summary About 6.8 million Jewish Israelis and 6.8 million Palestinians live today.'

Now, let's turn away from his venomous paper, sort things out and make it clear and authentic:

Israelis, it's majority are Jews, yet, it's largest minority are Arab, most of its Arabs are Muslims , then a sizable Christian community.

You can, on top of these simple non political facts, to choose an add-on, call Arabs with Israeli citizenship as "Palestinian" or not.

BTW, Israeli measures are related to survival and security, which is why certain 'areas' have more stringent measures, against Jews or against Arabs.

The 'A' slur, Omar Shakir is obsessed with since his student years, has no basis.
