I have transferred this in the talk page :
- Intermarriage between Ashkenazi Jews and Mizrahi Jews is increasingly common in Israel, and by the late 1990s 28% of all Israeli children had multi-ethnic parents (up from 14% in the 1950s).
I don't see the direct link with segregation. The fact taht 28 % of a community has multi-ethnic parents doesn't mean anything, particularly in a country like Israel with so many communities. The biggest is the Arab one and than come the Russian one and each is around 1,000,000 people out of a population of 7,000,000. What normal mixing would give should be stated and explained before stating that is linked to "segregation" or not. More it is not trange that the intermarriage increased after 1950 given the Mizrahi came to Israel mainly after the exodus from Arab lands. And finaly, the sources considering they were not considered as equivalent to Ashkenazi Jews do not lack. It was and is still partly a problem in Israel society.

more historical cases
I believe we could list more historical examples. The current historical cases section is somewhat arbitrary (Ireland...) and focusses too narrowly on Anglo-American and Nazi aspects. In the late 19th century up to mid-twentieth century, segregation was a popular official policy in many colonies. (As a necessary administrative tool to justify the very existence of the ruling entities, a nice explanation can be found e.g. in British nationality law and Hong Kong; practical segregation is implied in this sentence from Belgian Congo ″In 1953, the Congolese were granted the right to buy and sell private property in their own name″.)
French Algeria is an interesting example: Algeria was considered to be an integral part of France, but citizenship was granted to people of French, other European or Jewish descent; to Muslims only in very special cases. As a quick-fix I'll try to copy a passage from French Algeria#Discrimination. --Senfteiler (talk) 09:31, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
U.S. section not very coherent
The United States section isn't very coherent. The text lacks a clear direction or organization, and several of the statements imply contradictory ideas.188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:18, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
- You could find further information at the main article, Racial segregation in the United States, or improve that section using information from there. If you're talking about this U.S. section, then I disagree, it looks quite coherent to me. Yambaram (talk) 03:32, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
