Palestinian workers with legal permits are being ordered off buses. Settlers claim they pose a security risk. Israel's Transport Ministry may exclude Arabs. Buses henceforth may be for Jews only.
Jim Crow America relegated Blacks to the back of buses. Israel perhaps wants Arabs excluded entirely.
On November 27, B'Tselem headlined "Attempt at bus segregation appalling," saying:
Disclosure about possible segregated bus lines is uncalled for. Services "must be available on an equal basis to all and any who require them."

"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."
Israel plans greater occupation harshness. Conditions for besieged Gazans persist. Truce terms changed nothing.
December 10 is International Human Rights Day. It commemorates the General Assembly adopting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in 1948.
World leaders pledged to "complement the UN Charter with a road map to guarantee the rights of every individual everywhere."
