No to segregated buses; yes to segregated courts

[21 May 2015] - On Wednesday, 20 May 2015, the Prime Minister of Israel announced the freezing of a plan to segregate passengers on buses travelling in the West Bank based on their race or national identity. The announcement came less than one day after the regulation came into effect. However, it should be noted that the chief architect of the plan, Defence Minister Moshe Ya’alon, has made it clear that this is a temporary suspension and not a cancellation. Clearly this regulation presented a public relations disaster for Israel, but was its suspension motivated by something more, such as a genuine concern that such a regulation would amount to state sponsored discrimination based on race or national identity? Unfortunately, the answer to this question appears to be no.
