Israeli bus segregation plans blatant racism | Maan News Agency

Israeli human rights organization BTselem on Tuesday condemned the Israeli transport ministrys plans for segregated bus lines for Palestinians and Israelis. Israeli police have begun removing Palestinian passengers from buses at the request of Jewish settlers, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported Tuesday. An army reservist told Haaretz that Israeli police stationed near Salfit had ordered Palestinians off buses multiple times, leaving them to walk several miles and then catch taxis home.”The attempt at bus segregation is appalling, and the current arguments about security needs and overcrowding must not be allowed to camouflage the blatant racism of the demand to remove Palestinians from buses,” BTselem executive director Jessica Montell said in a statement.Settlement mayor Ron Nachman is working with the Israeli army, police and transport ministry to stop Palestinians boarding buses that go to Ariel, he wrote on his Facebook page.”All of them are working on this problem, and we hope that they will soon find a solution to the reality that is bothering our people,” he wrote.Responding to the post, one commenter wrote “finally you remembered that we have buses filled with Arabs?” while others commented that Palestinians were “terrorists” and “monkeys.”
