I've written this before,
a democracy doesn't have armed guards on the roads to restrict any culture, religion or race to have a different colored license plate
to restrict the use of all roads in the country like Israel.
In the West Bank, Palestinians and Israelis use different colored license plates. Palestinian vehicles have green or white plates; Israeli vehicles have yellow plates.

It doesn't take violence.
The Palestinians would achieve far far more by going to the negotiation table and peacefully accepting Israel's existence as a Jewish state.
Violence is what it took, and has taken, to achieve these concessions.
The issue of the negotiating table is the larger problem. The Zionists expect the Palestinians to surrender their rights in order to indulge the Zionists' ethnocentrically prejudiced ends. It's not going to happen.
The situation is untenable.
The Zionists' oppressive bigotry will be the ruin of everyone involved.
Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie has said Madonna will “do anything for money”, over her decision to perform during the final of the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv.
Speaking to Newsnight ahead of the release of a new greatest hits album, the rock band's lead singer called Madonna a “total prostitute” adding, “Primal Scream would never perform in Israel".
“I think the whole thing is set up to normalise the State of Israel and its disgraceful treatment of the Palestinian people. By going to perform in Israel I think what you do is you normalise that," he said.
Facebook has removed hundreds of social media accounts and banned an Israeli firm due to "co-ordinated inauthentic behaviour" mainly targeting Africa.
The fake accounts often posted on political news, including on elections in various countries, the firm said.
Facebook has faced rising criticism for failing to stamp out misinformation on its platform.
It launched a fact-checking programme in 2016 shortly after Donald Trump became US president.
In a blog post, Facebook said it had removed 265 social media accounts that originated in Israel and focused on Nigeria, Senegal, Togo, Angola, Niger and Tunisia, along with "some activity" in Latin America and South East Asia.
"The people behind this network used fake accounts to run pages, disseminate their content and artificially increase engagement.
"They also represented themselves as locals, including local news organisations, and published allegedly leaked information about politicians," Nathaniel Gleicher, head of cybersecurity policy at Facebook, wrote in the post.
An investigation found that some of the activity was linked to Israeli company Archimedes Group, Mr Gleicher said.
"This organisation and all its subsidiaries are now banned from Facebook, and it has been issued a cease and desist letter," he said.
