A Sign of Rejection – Yoav Sorek
(dailyalert.org, Mar. 28, 2014)
Big red signs beside Israeli roads leading to Palestinian-governed territories say in three languages: “This road leads to Area ‘A’ under the Palestinian Authority. Entry for Israeli citizens is forbidden, life-threatening, and against Israeli law.” As those of us who live here know all too well, a trip inside one of these areas can indeed prove fatal.
Yet not all Israelis need avoid entering these areas. Israeli Arabs come and go freely. Only Jewish Israelis are at risk of death. One encounters such signs on the fringes of Jerusalem and the outskirts of Tel Aviv, just a few miles from Ben-Gurion International Airport. (Mosaic)
