      their jobs, goods and services was based on religion.  

      It was not done to just some of the Palestinians who are hostile to Israel, but it was done to ALL Palestinians, regardless of their willingness to work with, and be friends with Jews.  

      In that regard their action was based on religious purity only.

        about how theocracies work.

        To demonstrate that this action was based on religious purity, you would need to show how the same was done to Christians and nonreligious Jews.  Which wasn't the case, because it was based on politics, nationality, and ethnicity, not religion.

        •  To me, the Israelis and the Palestinians (0+ / 0-)

          don't look all that different from one another.  So I'm not getting the idea of "having a slightly different skin tone" makes ethnicity a big factor.  Ethnicity in this case is based solely on the religious background of both sides.

          •  You do realize (0+ / 0-)

            that ethnicity is not the same thing as race, and that skin tone has precisely zero to do with the issue?

            There are a lot of ideas here you're not getting, and they're pretty significant ones.
