U.S. State Department: Israel is not a tolerant society

Report claims Israel discriminates against Muslims, Reform Jews, Christians, women and Bedouin.

(HAARETZ)   Israel dismally fails the requirements of a tolerant pluralistic society, according to a new report from the U.S. State Department.

Despite boasting religious freedom and protection of all holy sites, Israel falls short in tolerance toward minorities, equal treatment of ethnic groups, openness toward various streams within society, and respect for holy and other sites.

The comprehensive report, written by the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, says Israel discriminates against groups including Muslims, Jehova’s Witnesses, Reform Jews, Christians, women and Bedouin.

The report says that the 1967 law on the protection of holy places refers to all religious groups in the country, including in Jerusalem, but “the government implements regulations only for Jewish sites. Non-Jewish holy sites do not enjoy legal protection under it because the government does not recognize them as official holy sites.”

At the end of 2008, for example, all of the 137 officially recognized holy sites were Jewish. Moreover, Israel issued regulations for the identification, preservation and guarding of Jewish sites only. Many Christian and Muslim sites are said to be neglected, inaccessible or at risk of exploitation by real estate entrepreneurs and local authorities.

The report makes it clear that practices that have become routine in Israel are considered unacceptable in enlightened countries and should be corrected.

Among other examples, the report notes that more than 300,000 immigrants who are not considered Jewish under rabbinical law are not allowed to marry and divorce in Israel or be buried in Jewish cemeteries.

One Response to U.S. State Department: Israel is not a tolerant society

  • There was a time when Isreal were the chosen people of the true God. God did intervene on their behalf on many occasions in bible history. However God’s protection of the Isrealites was only to insure the birth of Jesus or the promised seed. The problem is, the Jewish religious leaders rejected Jesus and finally had Jesus killed. There are however some Jewish citizens who did follow Jesus such as the Apostles, Mary and a host of others. It is my opinion that it was the holocaust that caused Isreal to turn into such an intolerant society. But if you look behind the scenes, you will see that it was actually the Catholics who helped Hitler in in rise to power. Today, we are now headed towards the destruction of the world empire of false religion. The last human kingdom on this earth(UN/Wild beast of Revelations) is in the process of coming into power. They will ban religion and this will be the beginning of the great tribulation of Revelations. There is however one true religion on this earth who will never stop worshipping the true God. Satan, who is behind the whole thing will be furious and will try to attack those true Christians. This will in turn lead to Armaggeddon in Revelations which is the destruction of the wicked.
