If there is anyone out there that still thinks Israel is not an Apartheid state, they might want to rethink it after they see the following …..
Translation of the sign in photo …
Welcome to Betar Checkpoint

This checkpoint is for the passage of Israelis only. It is forbidden to pass and/or drive a person through this checkpoint, who is not Israeli!!

“Israeli” – a resident of Israel, a person who lives in the area and is a citizen of Israel, or a person ENTITLED TO MAKE ALIYAH TO ISRAEL ACCORDING TO THE [JEWISH] LAW OF RETURN, 1950, AS VALID IN ISRAEL” (emphasis added)

Betar Checkpoint
An Israeli street sign placed in the occupied West Bank (near Bethlehem) on Road 375 going from El-Khader Junction with road 60 (Tunnel Road) to Ela Valley. The sign is placed just before crossing from the West Bank to Israel near the illegal, Jewish-only colony/settlement of Betar Illit and the Palestinian villages of Husan, Batir and Wadi Fuqeen (Betar Checkpoint, which is not on the Green Line, but rather inside the West Bank).

Apartheid? Don’t be silly

From Scott Roth’s twitter feed: “I took this two weeks ago [in the West Bank]. Apartheid? Don’t be silly!” Area A makes up 3 percent of the West Bank. Israelis can come and go anywhere else they please elsewhere in the military-occupied territory.
Update: I added the word “elsewhere” above to remedy commenter’s confusion.

    In other words ”HELL ON EARTH” for the indigenous Palestinians.

    Worse than the “nazis” jews typically complain about. Such a sick society.

    For background, look up Jewish-Masonic revolutionary Ze’ev Jabotinsky who founded the “Betar Zionist Youth Movement” and was the godfather of the modern Likud party. Bibi Netanyahu’s father was Jabotinsky’s personal secretary.

    “”Afterward will come probably the most important task of all: to make Eretz Yisrael the leading state of the civilized world, a country the customs and laws of which are to be followed by the whole universe… Zionism is a tremendous, overwhelming important task, the boundaries of which our generation cannot as yet envisage.”

    I love that bit: ”A country, the customs and laws’..
    This is the country which has no constitution, no borders and no capital city – a very good ‘leading state’ without the status of a state.
    But has plenty of weapons; just militants.

    The constitution is the Talmud, the borders are “the whole universe”, and the capital city is Jerusalem. God has chosen them as the master race, and that the rest of us are their servants. Just ask rabbi Ovadia Yosef, founder of the Shas party:

    “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel”
