Rights group slams Israeli rule : worldnews

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 83%. (I’m a bot)

A leading Israeli human rights group has begun describing Israel and its control of the Palestinian territories as a single “Apartheid” government, using an explosive term that the country’s leaders and their supporters vehemently reject.

In a report released on Tuesday, B’Tselem said Israel has created a system in which Jewish citizens enjoy full rights, but Palestinians living in Israel’s four areas of control have different levels of rights – depending on where they live – are always below the Jewish people.

The four areas of Israeli control are the occupied West Bank where Palestinians live in dozens of disconnected enclaves under rigid military rule; occupied East Jerusalem where Palestinians are permanent residents but not citizens; the blockaded Gaza Strip which Israel continues to control externally; and Israel itself.

Israeli settlers beat a 78-year-old Palestinian farmer with clubs. Then they came back to attack his family : worldnews

I can't think of anyone who doesn't consider settlers a victim under any circumstances. Without the negative press, any settlers living outside the main Area C blocs who are essentially Israel would be sure that the government would rather view them as Palestine's problem. Settlers cost Israel billions of years. Just right in the toilet.

Sixty teens announce refusal to serve in Israeli army : worldnews

As someone who served in the Israeli army. Avoiding service is pretty easy if you really want to avoid it, with no prison time. Half of the recruits are doing desk jobs anyway, if they wanted to avoid certain jobs, they definitely could.

There is nothing brave about not enlisting to the army that protects you. The brave thing would have been to serve so they would actually have a say there instead of complaining from the side lines.
