More mendacious propaganda at Open Zion, Peter Beinart's weapon of words bunker:
One of the only mixed modes of transportation in Israel is the Jerusalem Light Rail—which, as it was originally built to connect surrounding Israeli settlements to central Jerusalem, is hardly equally inclusive to Palestinians. Historically, when the light rail system was first constructed, it uprooted several Palestinian neighborhoods, further displacing many Palestinians who once lived in Jerusalem. Now, though the train passes through several traditionally Arab neighborhoods, the stations are named in Hebrew rather than Arabic.
a. No "Israeli settlements".
There are the neighborhoods of Neveh Yaakov and Pisgat Ze'ev and French Hill. By the way, Neveh Yaakov was attacked, destroyed and ethnically cleansed of its Jews by Arabs in late 1947.
b. No "Palestinian neighborhoods" uprooted.
