Captain Codpiece endorses apartheid!

This shouldn't surprise anyone as this has been at least the unofficial US policy for decades but on his arrival in Tel Aviv today the US President explicitly referred to Israel as "a Jewish state". To describe this nation as belonging to one ethnic/religious group especially as it occupies territory (I am speaking of the legitimate borders of Israel as recognised by the UN) that less than seventy years ago that had a population where the majority was not Jewish in religion or ethnicity is an overt expression of racism.
