The largest practitioner of apartheid in the world is Islam, which practices both gender and religious apartheid. In terms of gender apartheid, Palestinian women - and all women who live under Islam - are oppressed by "honor" killings, forced veiling, segregation, stonings to death for alleged adultery, seclusion/sequestration, female genital mutilation, polygamy, outright slavery, and sexual slavery. Women have few civil, legal, or human rights under Islam.

Jews cannot become citizens of Jordan, Egypt, or Saudi Arabia, yet no one accuses those nations of apartheid. http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=10882 http://www.dailyalert.org/archive/2003-11/2003-11-21.html
Meanwhile Israel today is called Â‘Â”apartheidÂ” and Â“racistÂ” but the PA and a future Palestinian state will not be? After all the Jews will have deserved everything they get for their 100+ year struggle to defend themselves and find a few thousand square kilometres of land where they can exercise self-determination in their ancestral homeland.
No one will cry for the Israeli Jews as their remnants make their way to America and Europe where they will face a growing Islamist threat and once again become a persecuted minority in the lands of their great grandparents or swell the former Â“Israel lobbyÂ” which will now be honestly called the Â“Jewish lobbyÂ”. http://www.raymondcook.net/blog/index.php/2009/04/01/
HIT SQUADS UNLEASHED
”Any Palestinian who sells land in violation of this law will be considered to have committed national treason and will receive the maximum punishment.
”Any foreigner who violates this law will be prosecuted on charges of harming the national interest and will receive a life sentence.
”Any past or future deals with the occupiers concerning properties in Palestine are considered null and void.” -
Excerpts from the Property Law for Foreigners, under consideration by the Palestinian Legislative Council, outlawing land sales to “the government of occupation, its civilian and military institutions and its individual citizens”. “Imagine the world-wide denunciation had it been a warning of execution to Jews from Israel, for selling land to Palestinians. America and Europe erupt in justified fury.
...And so the spectre of semi-official deathsquads has come to the PA self-rule areas, conjuring up memories of apartheid South Africa, the former Yugoslavia—or indeed, of PLO-controlled Lebanon.
The campaign began on May 4, when Yasser Arafat’s “Justice Minister”, Freih Abu Meddein, announced the PA would start to enforce an old Jordanian law, which made the selling of land to Jews a capital offence. (Jordan rescinded the statute when it signed a 1994 peace treaty with Israel.)
Four days later, news broke that a prime property on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives—in a part of the city Palestinians want for the capital of a future independent state—had been sold to a Jewish businessman, and then donated to a Jewish religious seminary.
Ahmed Tibi, an Israeli Arab politician and Arafat aide, reacted to the sale during a radio interview by warning: “Whoever sells his house to Jews, has sold his soul to Satan and has done a despicable act.”
With the groundwork thus laid by the Arab leaders, and amid angry reactions to the law from Israelis and some US Congressmen—although not yet the State Department—the violence was set to begin.
Seventy-year-old Bashiti, an Israeli citizen who lived in eastern Jerusalem, was reportedly involved in the closing of the Mount of Olives land deal.
On May 8, he was lured to a meeting at a Jerusalem hotel by a woman who told him she had buyers for two houses in Ram’Allah he was trying to sell. From there it appears he was abducted.
That evening, he was seen at the Ram’Allah offices of Arafat’s personal security unit, Force 17.
Five hours later, in the words of an Israeli official, “the hospital in Ram’Allah telephoned his wife and told her she could come and pick up his body.”
He had been found dead, with his hands bound, his skull crushed, and his mouth sealed with plastic tape.
Pouring salt on the grief-stricken family’s wound, the PA-installed Islamic mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Ekrima Sabri, refused to allow Bashiti a Muslim funeral: “Such a person is not a Muslim and according to our religion we shouldn’t pray over the body in a mosque. He should not be buried in a Muslim cemetery.”
April 28, 2009 Who is the Apartheid state
? Palestinian gets death sentence for selling land to Jews A Palestinian military court has sentenced a man to death by hanging for selling land to an Israeli company. Land sales are considered treason by the Palestinians because of their long-running dispute with the Israelis, however the sentence is unlikely to be implemented. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas routinely withholds the required approval for executions. Several others are on death row as suspected informants for Israel. The sentence was handed down Tuesday in a military court in the West Bank city of Hebron after two days of closed-door hearings. http://www.viciousbabushka.com/2009/04/who-is-the-apartheid-state.html
Apr 1, 2009 23:24 | Updated Apr 2, 2009 14:09 PA: Death penalty for those who sell land to Jews By KHALED ABU TOAMEH Palestinian Authority, Jerusalem, Salaam Fayad The Palestinian Authority has issued yet another warning to Palestinians against selling their homes or properties to Jews, saying those who violate the order would be accused of “high treason” - a charge that carries the death penalty. The latest warning was issued on Wednesday by the Chief [Islamic] Judge of the Palestinian Authority, Sheikh Tayseer Rajab Tamimi, who reminded the Palestinians of an existing fatwa [religious decree] than bans them from selling property to Jews.
Title: What could more apartheid
than killing people for selling land? The Muslim countries (yes every single one of them) practise the aspects of apartheid that go beyond anything the South African government ever considered. Death for selling land to a person based upon the buyers religion is one of the most racist acts. And morons here defend this racism and then those same individuals attempt with pathetic comparisons and lies to claim that we somehow are the racists. http://haaretz.com/hasen/objects/data/TalkBackResponse.jhtml
PA Court: Hang Arab for Selling Land to Jews Arutz Sheva | April 29, 2009 | A Palestinian Authority military court on Tuesday sentenced a Hevron Arab to death by hanging for the “crime” of selling land to Jews in Judea and Samaria, the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency reported. The three-member judicial panel heard the case last week and handed down its verdict and conviction on Tuesday. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/131090
In 1996, the Palestinian Authority (PA) Mufti, Ikremah Sabri, issued a fatwa (religious decree), banning the sale of Arab and Muslim property to Jews. Anyone who violated the order was to be killed. At least seven land dealers were killed that year. Six years later, the head of the PAÂ’s General Intelligence Service in the West Bank, General Tawfik Tirawi, admitted his men were responsible for the murders.
On May 5, 1997, Palestinian Authority Justice Minister Freih Abu Middein announced that the death penalty would be imposed on anyone convicted of ceding Â“one inchÂ” to Israel. Later that month, two Arab land dealers were killed. PA officials denied any involvement in the killings. A year later, another Palestinian suspected of selling land to Jews was murdered. The PA has also arrested suspected land dealers for violating the Jordanian law (in force in the West Bank), which prohibits the sale of land to foreigners.
During the Palestinian War, few, if any Palestinians tried to sell land to Jews, but the prohibition remained in effect. Now that the war is over, the persecutions have begun again. In April 2006, Muhammad Abu al-Hawa was tortured and murdered because allegedly sold an apartment building in IsraelÂ’s capital city to Jews. Since the Mufti forbade Muslims accused of selling land to Jews from being buried in a Muslim cemetery, al-Hawa was laid to rest in a makeshift cemetery on the road between Jerusalem and Jericho. http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/myths2/exclusives.html

Our World: Why is Muhammad Abu al-Hawa dead? | Jerusalem Post Apr. 18, 2006 Eight young children were orphaned last Wednesday night because their father allegedly sold an apartment building in Israel’s capital city to Jews. ...Muhammad Abu al-Hawa was buried in a makeshift cemetery on the road between Jerusalem where he lived, and Jericho where he was murdered. His body was buried there because the Palestinian Authority’s mufti in Jerusalem, Ikremah Sabri, has barred all Muslims accused of selling land to Jews from being buried in a Muslim cemetery. http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1143498874080&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FPrinter
PAÂ’s fallacious premises
Palestinian Authority demands based on egregiously false assumptions
Arlene Kushner Published: 04.20.09, 12:06
We here in Israel have been asleep at the wheel. In a rush of concessionary zeal after Oslo, we chose to refrain from making our own case. At first this decision, made at a governmental level, was intended to demonstrate our eagerness for peace. But after a time it was almost as if we had forgotten how to speak for ourselves with vigor and forthrightness.
Meanwhile, the Palestinians have waxed inordinately successful at promoting their positions Â– youÂ’ll find no concessionary zeal on their part. And today the international community swallows those positions whole Â– without either setting them into historical context or doing a fair and reasonable analysis of precisely what it is that is being promoted as a Â“given.Â”
In fairness to the members of the international community, there has been scant reason for them to analyze the validity of Palestinian Authority premises as we havenÂ’t been doing so ourselves. This situation must change, and that change must begin here at home with a forthright challenge to several Palestinian presumptions. The Netanyahu government, at long last, gives hope of being ready to do this. Among the many issues that require a public airing are these:
Mahmoud Abbas, PA president, and others speaking on behalf of the Palestinian position, regularly refer to the “June 4, 1967 border.” What Abbas et al have in mind is the line, commonly called the Green Line, behind which Israel operated before the Six Day War that began on June 5, 1967. Implied is that this line constitutes IsraelÂ’s Â“realÂ” border, and that Israeli presence beyond this is automatically “illegitimate.” Thus, goes the PA argument, there can be no justice, no fairness that will lead to peace, unless Israel returns to her border.
Yet the simple, irrefutable, historical fact is that this line was not a border at all, but merely an armistice line. It was drawn when hostilities ceased at the end of the 1948-49 War of Independence Â— a war initiated, it should be noted, by the Arab League, which attacked the nascent state of Israel as soon as independÂ¬ence was declared.
Not only was it an armistice line, it was intended to be temporary. In the signed armistice agreement with Jordan (which was on the other side of that line) there was a clause stating that this line would not prejudice future negotiations on a permanent border. Thus the case cannot legitimately be made that the Green Line has any legal status in determining IsraelÂ’s Â“trueÂ” border. It does not. That border has yet to be determined. In negotiations.
Intolerable inequity of demands Even more egregious is the claim made by the PA regarding the land on the other side of the line that it sees as defining IsraelÂ’s border. Its leaders maintain that it must be totally Judenrein. This is a position that is inherently morally offensive, and yet it is accepted wholesale by the world.
When the Palestinians declare with great self-righteousness that Â“settlements are an obstacle to peace,Â” what they are actually pushing for is the total removal of Jewish presence on the land they are seeking for their state.
ItÂ’s past time to ask why this is all right.
This demand is particularly ironic in light of Palestinian charges that Israel is an “apartheid” state. Â“ApartheidÂ” is a buzz word, utilized spuriously to delegitimize Israel: anyone who has spent time in Israel and seen the freedom with which Arabs walk the streets and secure equal services knows full well that there is nothing remotely resembling apartheid here.
The situation grows even more ludicrous as the Palestinian leadership has just rejected the demand of Israeli Prime Minster Netanyahu that the PA recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
On Saturday, Azzan al-Ahmed, a close Abbas associate and major Fatah official, declared that, Â“We reject NetanyahuÂ’s demand to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. This demand illustrates the racist nature of IsraelÂ…Â”
If Israel Â– which permits its Arab citizens (citizens!) to elect representatives to the Knesset and provides them with full health care and other rights Â– is Â“racistÂ” for insisting that the nation must be recognized as having a Jewish character, what, precisely does this make the PA Â– which seeks to totally drive out every Jew from the land it envisions to be part of a future state?
The Apartheid Propaganda Labeling Israel as an “apartheid state” is the embodiment of the new anti-Semitism that seeks to deny the Jewish people the right of equality and self-determination among the nations. http://www.aish.com/jewishissues/middleeast/The_Apartheid_Propaganda.asp
