This is true modern apartheid.Shame on the Arab world.

To the world that chooses selected morality,real facts are simply ignored.There are none so blind............ Israel is criticised for self preservation, the Arab world lauded for standing up to tyranny. What about the tyranny they extend to Palestinians. They will never achieve true peace and democracy until they reflect on what they truly stand for! Carry on being a beacon of light to the seeing world ,Israel

Eye opening, informative message to the world

How powerful that short video is! Too bad more people in the world who consider Israel ,apartheid , don't see it. I wonder if Palestinians ever wonder or question why their own Arab brothers don't take them in and care for them. Israel, their so called occupiers give them every opportunity to life a free and normal life in Israel. Why isn't there more publicity about this shocking state amongst the Arab nations? All the bad press about western world companies and businesses carrying Israeli products. Shame on the world!

Wish the video's title was "Lebanon's Apartheid Against Palestinians"

If you only saw the original title you might (absolutely would) jump to the conclusion that this video is about Israel and the false claims that it is an Apartheid state against Palestinians. I wish that it was more obvious that this is NOT about Israel, but about Palestinians' Arab brothers refusing to give them equal rights. This is the story that must be told. I'm just afraid that for those who only see the title it will be neglected and misunderstood - Shared by those who want to slam Israel and not shared by those who think the title, in it's ambiguity, is positioned against Israel.

total ignorance

the person who wrote this atricle is totally ignorant of apartheid. i am 77 years old and lived through the apartheid years. arabs living in Israel havie all the rights of Israelies. the trouble is that Palestine beongs to Israel it it the country given to them by God and in the not too distant future it will revert back to them. not all the Abrabs in the world can prevent this from happening.
