This courageous senator has put forth a new bill that would require state land sales/leases to be distributed on the nondiscriminatory basis of equal rights. Alas, the bill has been voted down and whites retain their exclusive property rights to state-controlled land.
What the hell am I talking about? There is no way this can happen in the US, you claim? Well, you are right, it is crazy to contemplate such a thing in the US. Yet such legal discrimination is not only considered absolutely normal in Israel; further, it is the subject of specific, supportive arguments by the so-called liberal classes of the country (and American Jews, who are themselves a pretty liberal voting bloc on any other topic).
Last week, one of the few Arab members in Israel’s Knesset (the kind regularly touted by Israel’s supporters as evidence of Israel’s democracy), MK Tibi, proposed exactly the bill I just described above: a measure to have state land be allocated on the basis of equal rights, rather than on a preferential basis to Jews.
The law was voted down. Ethnocracy and its associated forms of institutional discrimination resist another challenge on the basis of equal rights.
