ISRAEL – PALESTINE
Israeli Supreme Court’s racism
Palestinians who marry an Israeli cannot acquire Israeli citizenship. For Israel’s right, the court’s decision saves the country from “demographic suicide”, but for human rights activists and liberals, it pushes the country down the “slope of apartheid”.

As peace is ever remote, more Palestinians in Jerusalem apply for Israeli citizenship
More than a thousand families applied for Israeli citizenship in 2016, up from 69 in 2003. However, red tape is an obstacle and more than half of all applications are rejected. Israel’s hold over the city is getting stronger with more settlements. Behind the trend is a desire to lead a normal life and avoid the fear of losing residency rights.

Most Israeli Jews for apartheid regime in Israel
Most want to take away voting rights from Israeli Arabs and deny it to Palestinians in case the West Bank is annexed. They also want separate roads for Israelis and Palestinians and the separation of Jewish and Arab children. This "picture is a very, very sick one" for Israel. Perhaps more than racism, it embodies naked power over the defeated.

Jerusalem: as tensions grow so do racism and settlements
The symbolic funeral for a Palestinian man leads to clashes with the police as well as 4 arrests and 21 injured. Netanyahu orders 1,060 new homes in East Jerusalem, boosts the number of police in the city. Starting next month, Palestinians who work in Israel will have to travel on separate buses from those used by Israelis. For Israeli President Rivlin, Israeli society is sick of racism.

Jewish State and Nazi Germany: IDF deputy chief of staff sparks controversy in Israel
Speaking for Holocaust Remembrance Day, General Golan talks about trends in Israeli society similar to what happened in Germany. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu calls the general’s remarks “outrageous”. Some call for his resignation. However, for experts, his words are a sign of split between Israel’s military and civilian leadership.
PM Olmert and Liebermann, confused moves for defence and peace
The inclusion of the Israel Betanu party creates problems in the ruling coalition and also in the relationship with Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Liebermann is known as a "racist". The only positive point: Israel Betenu is a secular party that (perhaps) will fight for civil marriage, as yet non-existent in Israel.
