TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israel police are ordering Palestinian passengers off buses at the request of Israeli settlers, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported Tuesday.

An Israeli army reservist told Haaretz that Israeli police stationed near Salfit ordered Palestinians off buses at least several times, leaving them to walk several miles and then catch taxis home.

Most of the Palestinians were laborers working around Tel Aviv.

Israeli police told Haaretz they were making sure Palestinian laborers returned to the West Bank from the same place they exited.

"The fact that a laborer has a legal work permit doesn't allow him to travel directly to the territories without going through an established crossing point," the police said in a statement.

Israel's Transport Ministry is mulling adding separate bus lines for Palestinians between the West Bank and Israel.

Settlement mayor Ron Nachman is working with the Israeli army, police and transport ministry to stop Palestinians boarding buses that go to Ariel, he wrote on his Facebook page.

"All of them are working on this problem, and we hope that they will soon find a solution to the reality that is bothering our people," he wrote.

Responding to the post, one commenter wrote "finally you remembered that we have buses filled with Arabs?" while others commented that Palestinians were "terrorists" and "monkeys."

israeli aparthied!!! Desmond Tutu, the ex archbishop of South Africa and human rights activist says israels aparthied is worse than South Africa's. israel is truly a war criminal. I hope Pals join the ICC so we can take israel leaders to trial fro the war crimes they committed. US leaders and israeli leaders are lower than scum. Human rights for thier citizens but torture and murder for everyone else.

So we too have commenters who post stupid comments, just like there's no shortage of Muslims who call Jews donkeys and pigs. However, there is a factual history of Palestinians blowing up Israeli buses and killing hundreds of innocent civilians. Therein lies the problem. Without peace, there will be incidents like this. Note that Israelis are not allowed to ride on Palestinian buses - in fact, if an Israeli got on a bus in apartheid Gaza or Ramallah there's a good chance they'd be lynched.

#2 - Brian and his fellow squatters can exploit them for cheap labour - but god forbid - don't let them ride his busses!! We can't have him and his ilk being contaminated by PALESTINIANS. His "factual history" is exactly that - history. When was the last time Palestinians blew up an Israeli bus, killing civilians? Several years ago, as I recall Brian. Why this particular collective punishment now? Oh, of course, UN bid coming up, innit.

#2 - the fact that people of the world clearly see how stupid your comment is, yet you yourself are oblivious to the sheer idiocy you spewed ... that should seriously, SERIOUSLY concern you. enough said.

if US with its black president even thinks of supporting this apartheid mentality, he will betray American history and all its citizens. this is so outrageous and disgusting, and that izrahell tries to justify it with bullshit nothing is even more deplorable. @Brian Cohen, there was no Palestinian riding on the bus that was recently attacked, you idiot....and hamas denounced suicide bombings YEARS ago. what underside of a rock do you frequent?

- to Mr Cohen, and to all the inhabitants-occupants of Israel, that think in that way and sense, the solution of ALL...is the balancing of 3 words: memory, fairness and communications. Historically is well documented that You have no land of yours, Historically is well documented of HOW You got there.... Historically the jews are not a well described race, particularly for not mixing with others, and for be money lending and diamonds traders living the door open to criticism and racism to all..

@Brian: Israelis are permitted to ride on Palestinian busses. If you refer to the small white-green busses in East Jerusalem, they are run by a co-company of Egged and everybody can ride it. If you refer to busses in area A,B,C: Israeli law prohibits Israelis from entering area A. In one point I agree, if a person is recognizable as Israeli/Settler in Hebron it may get dangerous, but there are many Leftist and Arab Israelis visiting Ramallah.
