Apartheid in action. Ahmed Tibi, a member of Knesset, states, "Israel is democratic for Jews, but Jewish for Arabs." Haaretz:

The Knesset Law and Constitution Committee conducted a heated debate Tuesday on two parallel law proposals that would enable certain communities in Israel to handpick their residents… [ the committees would be able to prevent Arab landowners from building on community land.]

MK Ahmed Tibi condemned the bills, which passed a preliminary vote a few weeks ago, claiming they would only allow systemic racism to take hold.

"This law is like pissing in mid-air," said Tibi. "Racism is starting to be legislated in the statute book. There is an influx of racist law proposals; you aren’t even ashamed of yourselves."
