Separate and definitely unequal

Al Jazeera reports today on the state of education in occupied East Jerusalem. It borders on the unbelievable. 30,000 Arab students in East Jerusalem are forced to attend private schools because the state (that's Israel, the occupying power) doesn't provide sufficient public classrooms for them. 5,000 more won't be attending school at all, because they can't afford private school.

The article doesn't say, but I'm willing to wager that the number of Jewish students in Jerusalem for whom there are insufficient places in public school is...zero. Any takers?

One thing that won't surprise you is that Israeli officials "reject" the charges.
