Israel’s democratic process and inclusion policies demonstrate the truth: There is NO apartheid here!
Israeli political parties, including several Arab parties, kicked off their elections campaigns after the Knesset was dissolved on Monday, ahead of the scheduled elections on March 17.
This crucial democratic process is overseen in Israel by the Central Elections Committee, thus ensuring a smooth and truly free and transparent process. The Committee is comprised of Knesset members representing various parliamentary groups and is chaired by a Supreme Court justice.
Israeli Arab Supreme Court Judge Salim Joubran, who has served as a Supreme Court judge since 2003, was chosen as head of the Central Elections Committee in May 2013.
Joubran graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1968 and has since filled several prestigious legal positions, including judge of the Haifa District Court.
The Haifa-born judge is also a member of the Board of Trustees of Haifa University, where he taught and received an Honorary Doctorate degree.
Anyone living in Israel knows that Arabs are employed by and receive service at all government offices. They study at all universities, including Ariel University in Samaria, and serve as judges, IDF officers and parliamentarians.
Would Jews Be Welcome throughout a Divided Jerusalem?
To see true “apartheid” in Israel, just imagine what would happen if the Palestinians divided Jerusalem. The recent wave of terror attacks and anti-Semitic sentiment sweeping the globe seeks to do just that: to snatch Jerusalem from the Jews and to keep them out. Looking at what happens across the Middle East, outside of Israel, we can safely say it would not take long for a Palestinian-controlled Jerusalem to exclude all people except for Muslims from the city.
