Israeli Apartheid under the Bibi-Fascist
Only yesterday, LGF readers were treated to the vile screeds of anti-Israel Israeli columnist Gideon Levy, who falsely accused Israelis of favoring apartheid policies. Here is today’s example of Israeli apartheid in action, from Lebanon’s Daily Star newspaper:
Over 50,000 Muslims pray at Al-Aqsa for Eid
JERUSALEM: More than 50,000 Muslim worshippers flooded Al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem’s Old City for prayers on Friday, the first day of Eid al-Adha or Feast of Sacrifice, Israeli police said.
“Some 50,000 attended morning prayers on the Temple Mount, and another 7,000 were there for afternoon services,” police spokeswoman Luba Samri told AFP, adding that “everything went peacefully.”
The Israeli army also eased restrictions on access of West Bank Palestinians on the occasion of the holiday.
“Travel and access restrictions will be eased during the holiday for the Palestinian population in the Judea and Samaria region,” an army statement said referring to the West Bank.
“These measures are part of a general policy to improve the quality of life,” it added.
Among other measures, the army extended opening hours of several West Bank checkpoints and granted family visitation permits, the statement read
One more reason why accusing Israel of being an apartheid regime is a slap in the face to those who actually suffered under and fought to overturn the real apartheid regime.
