One correction on `Israeli Labor Party adopts the apartheid mantra`
Ran Greenstein
Facebook, Feb. 9, 2016

First Oren Yiftachel, then another BGU colleague on Israel`s apartheid regime. One correction though (sorry, Neve): the Bantustans were kept afloat economically through migrant labour (and to some extent border industries), not through state subsidies. This made for greater freedom of movement in South Africa: black people depended on jobs in the white-dominated economy, white people depended for their prosperity on cheap labour supplied by Bantustan and township residents. This allowed black workers to organise and undermine the system from within. Is there an equivalent in Israel/Palestine?
