Israel: still failing at apartheid!

Arab woman working in Israeli businessThe employment rate of the Arab women in Israel surged almost 20 percent by the end of September, according to data published by the Central Bureau of Statistics on Sunday.

Compared with 128,000 in the second quarter of 2017, about 154,000 Arab women in Israel, or 40 percent of all Arab-Israeli women aged 25-64, were employed in the second and third quarter of 2018, just a step away from the 41-percent employment target set for 2020.

I can personally attest that when I go to the pharmacy in my hometown, the pharmacist is more often than not an Israeli Arab woman. And one of them even proudly wears a hijab.

But please lecture to me about apartheid in Israel.
