This article doesn't support your claim that there is governmental and agencies supporting the poor treatment of minorities and illegal immigrants and residents. This article shows that although there is room for improvement (like every other country in the world) there are laws in place to protect at risk peoples.
Did you actually read it? I'm not trying to be condescending, but it is a long report, and you may have just breezed it. Here's a few select quotes I'm referring to:
“Resources devoted to Arabic education were inferior to those devoted to Hebrew education in the public education system.”
“Approximately 93 percent of land was in the public domain, including approximately 12.5 percent owned by the NGO Jewish National Fund (JNF), whose statutes prohibit sale or lease of land to non-Jews.”
“Approximately 60,000 Bedouin lived in at least 46 unrecognized tent or shack villages that did not have water and electricity and lacked educational, health, and welfare services.”
“The law bars family reunification when a citizen’s spouse is a non-Jewish citizen of Iran, Iraq, Syria, or Lebanon. Citizens may apply for temporary visit permits for Palestinian male spouses 35 years old or older or Palestinian female spouses 25 years old or older, but may not receive residency based on their marriage and have no path to citizenship.”
“excessive use of force against civilians, including killings; abuse of Palestinian detainees, particularly during arrest and interrogation; austere and overcrowded detention facilities; improper use of security detention procedures; demolition and confiscation of Palestinian property; limitations on freedom of expression, assembly, and association; and severe restrictions on Palestinians’ internal and external freedom of movement.”
Mind you, I didn't originally read the whole report (I have now however) but first learned of it from here: http://electronicintifada.net/blogs/ben-white/us-state-department-israel-practices-institutional-discrimination
Search for the quotes and references in the report yourself.
The conclusions of the report are clear, this isn't about "protecting" people.
Didn't read this wikipedia article yet.
So from 2004 to 2005 there wasn't a lot of progress in improvements for Arab citizens. Well that is nearly 10 year old information. And fails to address what else may have been going on at the time. However no gross violations are noted.
Obviously not a lot has changed, given the most recent reports on the nation:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racism_in_Israel#Reports_addressing_racism_in_Israel
So what do we have here. In 2010 the report stating that the Israeli government EFFECTIVELY EFORCED THESE PROHIBITIONS i.e. discrimination on the bases of race.
You're quote mining from the same source that said in 2012 in regards to Israeli conduct: "Human rights problems related to Israeli authorities included reports of excessive use of force against civilians, including killings; abuse of Palestinian detainees, particularly during arrest and interrogation; austere and overcrowded detention facilities; improper use of security detention procedures; demolition and confiscation of Palestinian property; limitations on freedom of expression, assembly, and association; and severe restrictions on Palestinians’ internal and external freedom of movement. The IDF maintained restrictions on movement into and out of the Gaza Strip and largely limited the travel of Palestinians out of Gaza to humanitarian cases, in addition to some business travelers.”
Sure sounds like they're effectively enforcing it
Now here an interesting problem. Minorities not bearing the full obligation of citizens of Israel. This really needs to be looked at in the clear light of day so to speak. If this is only a perceived problem then education is needed to show the value of the minorities. If however there is an exceptionally large influx of very needy people from somewhere. What makes that Israel's responsibility. Why not Egypt or Saudi Arabia or South Africa or Nigeria. Anyhow any nation that has a disproportionately large population of citizen unable to contribute to the well being selves let allow help the over all economy of the nation will likely enter down hill trend. Those on a small world this is a problem that just can't be thrown at some other government. I. E. refugees and asylum seekers need help but the blame for the problems they are having should be squarely placed on the countries they are fleeing.
In other words, you acknowledge their racist behavior (after trying to tell me they're not racist) and say it's okay. Um, then what's the argument about?
Also we're discussing treatment of native people to the region, people born and raised there. So I'm not sure why you're going on and on about immigrants in the country, which are primarily Jewish. But since you bring it up, I did find this recent article:http://electronicintifada.net/content/racist-ringleaders-2013-israels-war-africans-intensifies/13023http://therealnews.com/t2/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=767&Itemid=74&jumival=10892
Yikes! Give me Arizona compared to this any day...
Per your request we're staying on topic. However it would be a total dodge to blame all Mexico's problems on the US.
It would be a total dodge, but I never made such a claim. I said the massive influx of immigrants from Mexico in the past 20 years, which is the phenomenon you're commenting on here, was caused by US policies toward Mexico, which is an indisputable fact. If we want to stop illegal immigration, we gotta stop raping their country.
Interesting I still get stopped at border check points on I-8 when driving through Arizona.
Well Arizona cops are hardcore fascists, but yeah the law in question was gutted: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/supreme-court-rules-on-arizona-immigration-law/2012/06/25/gJQA0Nrm1V_story.html?hpid=z1https://www.aclu.org/immigrants-rights/federal-court-deals-new-blow-arizonas-anti-immigrant-sb-1070http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/25/arizona-immigration-law-ruling_n_1614067.html
My first memory of law enforcement I was a very small blonde haired blue eyed child being taken across the California Mexico border by my olive complected, black-haired, brown eyed father. The border patrol agent wanted to know who the man I was with was. When I answered my father he asked me "For how long?" You know know that's a trick question for a 6 year old.
I was born a citizen of the USofA
So you weren't a citizen of the US for half your life?
