Race cannot be changed, but religion can be changed. Discrimination based on religion cannot, therefore, be racist. (Unless the favored religion prohibits people of a certain race from converting.)
You are a proponent of apartheid…
No, I'm not. Just as the US and every other country has standards for citizenship, and treats non-citizens differently, so does Israel.
I'm not suggesting they should be barred from living in certain neighborhoods, nor barred from any jobs (save those where national security is a concern).
Let me ask you this: Do you think it's proper that Arabs should be excused from military service, and blocked from top jobs at Mossad and Shin Bet? If so, then you are the same as I am. It's just a matter of degree.
