Israel 'ditches' segregation

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday called off a proposed plan to segregate Palestinians from Israelis on West Bank buses, overruling his own defense minister following a flurry of criticism in an attempt to avert the first crisis of his new government.
An official in the prime minister's office said Netanyahu called Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon to tell him he found his proposal "unacceptable" and the two then decided to freeze the plan.
What does it tell you about a country that would even conceive of such a plan. The next time Israel waxes moral and moralistic (or the United States either), consider the question.

In earlier times, when political correctness lacked its current foothold, there was an expression: "How very white of you/them."

Maybe lynching could be outlawed next.

  1. I'd like to see lying outlawed, and stupid too. But that might outlaw people entirely. We're only human after all. We're allowed to believe whatever we want, no matter what harm those beliefs might encourage.
