‘ MINISTER OF DEFENCE TO PREVENT PALESTINIAN LABOURS TRAVELLING ON ISRAELI PUBLIC BUSES ‘
#AceWorldNews – WEST BANK – Nov. 22 – Minister of Defence not content with moving Palestinians to the back of the bus, means to keep them off entirely.
In response to reports that Israeli Minster of Defense Moshe Ya’alon intends to yield to the settler demand to prevent Palestinian day labourers from returning home to the West Bank on Israeli public buses.
Israeli human rights group B’Tselem says that Minister Ya’alon is not content with merely moving Palestinians to the back of the bus, but means to keep them off buses altogether.
It is time to stop hiding behind technical arrangements such as the demand that Palestinians return to the West Bank through the same checkpoint they entered Israel, and admit this military procedure is thinly veiled pandering to the demand for racial segregation on buses.
