apartheid: /‘ə-ˈpär-ˌtāt -ˌtīt /. specifically : a former policy of segregation and political, social, and economic discrimination against the non-white majority in the Republic of South Africa
NOTE: The extreme racial segregation of apartheid lasted from 1948 to 1994 and included such restrictions as where people of certain races (see RACE entry 1 sense 1a) could live or own land, what jobs they could hold, and who could and couldn’t participate in government.
Note: 47% of healthcare workers at Israeli Hospitals are Palestinian Israelis, Lately, there has been news footage from hospitals inside Gaza shown on television. One interesting thing to note is that there are no women healthcare workers in Hamas controlled Gaza. Only men are allowed to serve as doctors or nurses.
