HonestReporting Canada’s executive director responded to pernicious allegations in an Orly Halpern article in the Globe and Mail, where she quoted an Israeli professor who erroneously claimed that "Jewish-only roads" exist in the West Bank:
"Orly Halpern (Israel To Expropriate Palestinian Land For Highway – Oct. 10) quoted an Israeli professor, Oren Yiftachel, claiming that Jewish-only road networks exist in the West Bank, something akin to "apartheid," according to the professor. There are no "Jewish-only" roads in the West Bank. Certain West Bank roads are open to Jewish, Muslim and Christian Israeli citizens (whose vehicles have yellow licence plates) but are off-limits to non-Israeli residents of the West Bank (who have different plates).
