The head of the UN General Assembly just called Israel an “apartheid” state. In other words, Israel is emblematic of evil in the world. I’ve finally realized what the problem is: Israel has a mixed population.
Think about it: Iraq expelled her Jews and hounded her Christians into obscurity. Saudi Arabia makes it illegal to be Jewish or Christian — so there are no Jews or Christians, making it a nice, homogenous population. Iran also simply expelled or murdered different people. The same holds true for Arab/Muslim state after Arab/Muslim state, all of whom are in good odor at the UN.
The secret, therefore, to avoid this insulting epithet isn’t to try to accommodate your hostile minority populations. Instead, the secret is to destroy them entirely. Once they’re good and gone, and once you’ve become a completely homogeneous racial or religious state by virtue of their (enforced) absence, nobody can tar you with the crime of being an “apartheid state.”
Orwell would be proud.
