Synonyms of 'apartheid' 2 synonyms - Roget's II: Thesaurus • The policy or practice of political,Other definitions specify that it's only apartheid if the group discriminated against are black Africans.
That makes me wonder. If a different racial, national or religious group is forbidden to live and work in certain places, is it immoral, apartheid or perfectly acceptable, even to the extent that Nobel Peace Prizes are given to its proponents?
Why is it against American Law to restrict housing only to certain races and religions in Jericho, Long Island, New York, but the same moralists and legislators have no problems restricting Jews from the original Jericho? Actually the Nazis had a term for that, "Juden rein," clean of Jews. That was their goal, to make a Europe "clean of Jews." They failed, but now the new French President unabashedly proposes:
Ironic. He, with the Jewish blood and soon to be Jewish daughter-in-law, sees nothing wrong with segregating and discriminating against Jews. Yes, I know that Israeli and other Jewish Leftists feel the same, but does that make it right? Not at all.
We're living a classic children's fable, The Emperor's New Clothes. We all must shout along with the little boy who wasn't afraid to tell the truth.
Too many people who pride themselves on their "liberalism" and "morality" are as naked as that foolish emperor was.
