They’d like us to think it’s all black & white.

The Route 443 controversy was back in the news again today. What Route 443 controversy? Ok, this one is not as widely known as some other situations, but the gist of it is that Israel has been able to reduce the number of terror attacks on its citizens by restricting traffic on some roads in such a way as to lessen the number of terrorists traveling on those roads. The Israeli courts said a while back, ‘no can do’ with regard to Route 443, since that amounts to discrimination. Discrimination against terrorists, or even against the demographic group from which most or all terrorists come – no, we can’t have that.

But I’m actually not trying to write about Route 443 today. It just came up as an example of the way Israel’s enemies try to portray security issues as civil rights matters.  Since most thinking people will see through that ruse rather quickly, the enemy camp has taken to further obfuscation by liberal use of the term “apartheid,” mostly associated with a book written by former U.S. president Jimmy Carter. It’s gets downright goofy really fast if you try to pursue that line of thought. First you have to assert a strong similarity between Israeli society and the culture in South Africa under the former English-Dutch regime, then, if you think you’ve accomplished that, you have to start referring to the Israelis as “whites,” so you can cry about “whites only” restrictions, so that you can then call the Palestinians “blacks” – no, wait, that won’t work. So they stop there (no need to follow logic, let alone make sense). And they just cry “whites only” this, “apartheid regime,” “whites only” that, not because it makes any sense, but just for the wonderful imagery it conjures.

So here are some images of “whites” and, uh, “non-whites” (since we can’t actually use the terms appropriate to the South African comparison):

I think you get the picture.
