More on the Israeli Railways: and other employers who think Arabs and Jews shouldn't have equal treatment

That is, these workers, who were being discriminated against by the Israeli state railway for not being Jewish. There is some good news to report: a first court victory. Still, the railway employers are continuing to try to justify their discrimination, so the lawsuits continue. However, one might say there is light at the end of the tunnel.......

It's not just the railways, of course. Here's an Israeli employer demanding that the labour courts strike out compensatiuon claims by Gazan workers, not on any legal grounds but because preventing them from being paid is starving Gaza of funds, the people of Gaza voted for Hamas, and hence denying them compensation is a blow against Hamas. You couldn't make it up: but as this is Israel, you don't have to.
