What. This was his actual response.
Apparently Jewish Agency official Avi Mayer knows best. Dispossessed Palestinians should be relieved that they don’t have to face traffic jams. Palestinians not allowed to drive on Jewish-only or settler-only roads (which Mayer doesn’t believe exist) are lucky they get to use roads leading through — or stopping at — personally invasive security checks and military checkpoints. Thank you for saving us, colonists.
I’m not allowed into the West Bank. Neither is Nour, a Palestinian-American schoolteacher who teaches English to students in Ramallah. Wedad and millions of other Palestinians are also kept out. But hey, they “aren’t missing out on much,” thank God.
