      PA Arabs Cramming Yesha Buses


      The Afikim bus company runs 35 lines for the benefit of Yesha residents, but in reality, the majority of the passengers are PA Arab workers who take up the seats in addition to harassing and intimidating Jews on the bus. Furthermore, the buses can at times be so packed with them that  no Jews are even allowed on, and must wait hours for the next available bus.

      Initially the Transportation Ministry proposed to run special PA lines for Arabs, but the media outcry against the "racist discrimination" prevented the possibility.
