Where’s the Apartheid: Israel Knesset

Many lies, myths, smears and Pallywood fake photos are being circulated in honor of Israel Apartheid Week. The name itself is misleading, as the ‘week’ is scheduled to last for more than a month this year.

We plan to share new and real photos of the Apartheid situation in Israel each week of the hate fest.

It is a fact that 10% of Israeli Knesset members are Arab.

All official signs in Israel are in Hebrew and Arabic, the Israeli house of government is no exception.

But it took more than one visit to find this room and sign. People working in the Knesset building were not aware there was such a room, let alone its location.

Inside the Knesset building there is a Muslim prayer room. No shoes allowed!

I was not allowed inside, but the guard made a call and he was allowed to unlock the door and let me take photos.

The photo hanging inside is not of Mecca, but of the Temple Mount filled with bowing Islamic worshipers.

Did you know that this poster was hanging inside the Israeli Knesset?

One day last week a group of Arab students were on a visit to the Knesset.

After eating lunch in the Knesset staff cafeteria, they wandered around the area.

Where’s the Apartheid?

The only signs of separation were for the toilets – one for men and one for women.

Arab women and girls use the same restrooms as other female Israelis.

So where’s the Apartheid?

No sign of it anywhere in the Israeli Knesset.


Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last ten years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
