Who Didn’t See This Coming

I would think a nation composed primarily of Jews would be as adverse to persecuting groups of individuals based on religion and race as a vampire is to sunlight. That’s not the case. In a rather incredible act of irony Israel began segregating Palestinians onto separate, and I’m sure equal, buses. Needless to say most people knew what was going to come next, the Palestinian-only buses would be targeted for attack:

Two Israeli buses that were part of a controversial “Palestinian-only” bus line launched earlier this week were torched on Monday night.

It’s much easier to lash out at groups when they’re conveniently segregated from other populations.
