Israel dedicated to division

The Israeli Cabinet has approved a route of the “security” fence that will cut off 55,000 Palestinian Arabs in Jerusalem. Labor Minister Haim Ramon said that the wall was designed to keep out “terrorists” and, in a telling sign of racist slippage, to maintain a Jewish majority in the city. “The fence makes Jerusalem more Jewish”, he said.

Israel’s descent into apartheid continues.

UPDATE: Further info on the changes here. While the Australian media focuses on Israel’s latest request for financial assistance – the Middle East client state knows little shame – Israel MP Azmi Bshara said that the proposed changes suggested the Israeli authorities failed to understand the effect on people’s lives and saw only a paper and ruler.
