Israelis Are Bad at Apartheid – Nancy Chayn Fogelman
Despite all the credit people around the world give Israel for being an apartheid state, we are really bad at it. When my family took a vacation in Eilat just after Hannuka and spent a week in a popular resort on an Israeli kibbutz, the majority of the guests in the hotel were Arab. We even shared a jeep with an Arab couple on our desert jeep tour.
After our vacation, I went back to work at Hadassah hospital, taking care of Muslim and Christian Arabs side-by-side with the Jewish patients. Some of my fellow nurses are also Arabs, some of whom live in the dorms with Jewish nurses. And we have both Arab and Jewish doctors, all working together and even smiling and laughing and getting along. The rest of the world insists on calling us an apartheid state, but when it comes to doing apartheid, we fail miserably. (Times of Israel)
