Apartheid in Jaffa's Municipal Pool

The "Neve Golan" municipal pool in Jaffa's "HaBaal ShemTov" street serves kids and adults from all over Jaffa. A simple swimming pool, nothing luxurious, with green lawns around and plenty of corners for kids to play in.
Mothers and their children from all ethnic groups living in Jaffa make use of it. Not any longer.

From now no, monday will be a the "No Arabs Allowed" day. Officially.

I hope someone will take it to court and demand damages.

I hope nobody will come to the pool on Monday.

South Africa? Western Europe during certain periods?

Do they give any reason for the exclusion?

But I would agree with the comment that if there is a problem in Jafo with Arab behavior in public swimming pools:"the answer is to issue membership cards (to everyone ie Muslims/Christians/Jews) which can be withdrawn for misbehavior".

Btw I wonder why the Muslim Wafq doesn't allow Jews to pray on the Temple Mount.Kind of racist of the Muslim Waqf?

Anonymous... i can guess why you want to stay aninymous, you little racist...
"Arab behavior", imagine sonewhat would say '"Jewish behavior" in the US, immediately there would be an outcry on anti semitism.

The Waqf and the Haram Asharif? (the templemount has been a Muslim religious shrine for the last 1200 years or so).
Again, wrong and mistaken. non Muslims can visit there between the Muslim prayers, which is most of the hours of the day and night.
They can pray there privately, not as groups, it IS after all a MUSLIM holy place.

As usually a mixture of half facts and half untruths and unrelated BS of dear coward "anonymous".

How many synagogues allow Muslims to come in and pray as groups?
