“A map showing how Palestinian cars are marked by differently colored number plates, and where they are allowed to go and not to go. Imagine living in a country where your race prevented you from traveling on certain roads in your own country, and where newcomers enjoy tunnels, bypasses and new roads to facilitate their travel. There are even roads which are parallel, with one being for Jews and the other for Palestinian Arabs. Jim Crow was never this extensive:

“Looking at maps like this, it becomes clearer to me every day that the two-state solution is a chimera for long-term Israeli occupation of the whole area with permanent segregation for the natives, and inducements for them to leave.”  — Andrew Sullivan
