Israeli HOLOCAUST in
When Theodor Hartzl, the ideological founder of the Zionist movements in the 1890s, was asked what he proposed to do with the indigenous Palestinian population when his "state of the Jews" become a reality, he replied, "We will quietly spirit them across the boarder".
"For Europe", Hartzl believed, "we would constitute a bulwark against Asia down there [in

Joseph Weitz, the head of the Jewish Agency's colonization department, confirmed this in his 1940 diary. "It must be clear", he wrote, "that there is no room for both people's together in this country … not one (Arab) village, not one tribe should be left".

Since its formation in 1948,
Criticism of Israeli policy toward the Palestinians is routinely branded as "anti-semitism". Zionist leaders have used the murder of six million Jews by the Nazis during the second world war to justify their own genocidal campaign against the indigenous Palestinian population.

The 1952 Law of Entry
Anti-Arab racism is
The 1952 Law of Entry, for example, states that whatever "does not hold an immigration visa or immigration certificate" can face immediate deportation by the interior minister or can be denied visa at any time.
But who is able to qualify for such a visa? The Law of Return restricts immigration visas solely to Jews. Palestinian refugees are therefore legally barred from re-entering
The 1952 Citizenship Law
The 1952 Citizenship Law is also discriminatory, in that it allows only Jews the right to retain their former citizenship after becoming Israeli citizens. The same law obliges non-Jews to renounce their former citizenship before becoming citizens.
Many discriminatory rulings have been delivered by Jewish Rabbinical courts which are recognised as part of

Under the Military Service Law am enumerator is appointed to call up draftees to be conscripted into the Israeli army. But the enumerator also has the authority to refuse to conscript certain people; i.e., Arabs Palestinians and therefore denied all benefits, access to many jobs and the right to lease homes or land controlled by government bodies, as it is stipulated that candidates must be draftees.
Instead the refugees have been the target of further Israeli abuses of human rights such as when the Israeli army provided protection for and co-ordinated the ultra-right Phalange militia as it massacred over 2000 Palestinian women and children in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in

The majority of the expropriations were carried out within the framework of Israeli civilian law.
Laws with relatively benign sounding names such as the Law of Acquisition of Absentee Property. Emergency articles for the expropriation Uncultivated Lands, the Law for Acquisition of Land and the Law for the Requisition of Land in Times of Emergency were passed in the early years of the Israeli state.
The Emergency Articles for the Exploitation
The Emergency Articles for the Exploitation of Uncultivated Lands were typically invoked after the military governor had designated a piece of land as a "defence area" to which civilians were denied access. The Palestinian owners of this land would be unable to farm it and so it would become fallow. The Israeli Ministry of Agriculture would then declare the land "uncultivated" and order its expropriation.
The Law of Acquisition of Absentee Property
The Law of Acquisition of Absentee Property gave the Israeli state the legal right to confiscate all Arab land unless the owners could produce documentary evidence showing they owned that land and also providing they had not left their residence between September 29, 1947 and September 1 1948 to go anywhere outside Jewish control. It was often impossible for many Arabs to prove land ownership as most land was never registered but had passed on through hereditary right.

The number of Israeli settlements in the occupied territories has increased from three at the end of 1967 to 195 today. New settlements continued to be constructed on Palestinian land throughout the so called "peace process".
The Israeli government has also pursued a grossly discriminatory water policy in order to control and enforce the dependence of Palestinians in the occupied territories. In
During the "peace process" the Israeli government pursued the policy of "closure" around the occupied territories. Closure became a policy of segregation.

With the mass uprising in the occupied territories in 1987 – the intifada - the Israeli government begun to issue identification cards. These cards list a "nationality" - either Jewish, Arab, Druze, Circassian, Samaritan, Kara'ite or foreign.
The Jews should be Discriminated around the World! The purpose of the ID cards was to increase the ability of the Israeli government to restrict the travel of non-Jews. Palestinians living in the
The cards also allow for discrimination against non-Jews when they apply at government offices for service regarding the acquisition of property, government support for young couples, educational curricula and government support for schools.
The Israeli Education System = Nazi System
The Israeli education system is totally Jewish and racist in content. Almost no Arab history is covered and there are no Arab textbooks in the Israeli curricula.
Palestinians also face significant barriers to gaining a university education. In 1969, out of the 37, 343 students in higher education, only 700 were Arabs.
A key component of Israeli rule in the occupied territories has been to ensure that Palestinians remain economically dependent upon
