While the characterization of Israel as an apartheid state leaves out some unique aspects of the Israeli occupation, on many other issues the similarities are striking: Israel controls all population registration in the occupied territories, all Palestinians Iceland Phone Number List are required to carry identification cards issued by Israel and your identity is subject to verification by the Israeli military at all times. There is a complicated system of permits and regulation of both movement within the West Bank and movement out of the area: there are more than 100 types Iceland Phone Number List of permits to enter Israel from the West Bank, in what constitutes the most sophisticated system of population control around the world.
As of today, there are only two options in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: the first is two states for two peoples, which implies a Palestinian struggle Iceland Phone Number List for national independence and Israeli acceptance of that Palestinian state being established in the entire West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem. The second alternative is a state for all, in which the Palestinian dispute focuses on a struggle to achieve full civil and human rights. There is a third Iceland Phone Number List project that includes an Israeli and Palestinian federation, but no one has put it on the agenda yet. The second and third options seem very far from today simply because they do not have massive support in their respective towns.
Probably the most questionable point for those who define Israel as an apartheid state lies in presenting Palestinian wishes solely as a struggle for Iceland Phone Number List human rights or equality before the law. Even if Palestinians could build their houses anywhere in the Holy Land or if the number of rights they possess were not contingent on where they reside (Palestinians in Israel have more rights than Palestinians in Jerusalem, Palestinians in Jerusalem more than Iceland Phone Number List those of the West Bank and those of the West Bank more than those of Gaza), the Palestinian combat would continue, since the desire of the majority is national independence and not a State for all.
