On Apartheid and Cheeseburgers

What is the legal definition of Apartheid?
|Arab Israeli IDF soldiers, Tel Aviv 1949|
Still think it is an apartheid state?
deal with them and to cover their bodies totally in black sheets. Women are prohibited from entering many public places like malls, markets, restaurants, movies, gyms, governmental offices. Males and females are segregated everywhere. A woman in Saudi Arabia hold very limited economic rights; her right to a private property is limited to a male guardian approval. Saudi women are prohibited to practice many sports to the extent that Saudi Arabia has no female delegation in the Olympics. Before 2010 women were not entitled to get identification cards or official documents. Saudi Arabia is a country that has taken clear legislative measure to insure a male dominant regime and male domination in all aspects of life degrading the life of women to some very hard circumstances. For me, regardless of the international community, this is a straightforward apartheid state. I wish that Prof. Hawking and the other respectful figures of science and art would launch a campaign as furious as the one launched against Israel to boycott the oil money of this inhumane country. But well all know that oil money is too important for all of us, so we know that it will never happen. Saudi Arabia will keep discriminating women and other non-Sunnah minorities living there. And not only Saudi Arabia, talk to me about the Copts in Egypt, the non-Muslims in Iran, the non-Arabs in the Sudan, tell me what did the world do for those harshly discriminated minorities? Nothing, the Arabs in Israel are living their daily lives normally like all Israelis enjoying healthcare, political rights, civil freedom and economical stability, while those minorities all over the middle east are persecuted and discriminated, yet Israel is the one to be considered an apartheid state?! Damn you oil money.
