Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein determined on Sunday that the separation of Jews and Arabs at the Superland amusement park is illegal because it violates the principle of equality.
"Separation of service recipients by their national affiliation, and certainly refusal to provide a service to someone on the basis of their origin, is discrimination that flies in the face of human dignity and taints all of society," Weinstein wrote.
Nevertheless, due to the circumstances of this particular case, the attorney-general, along with State Attorney Moshe Lador, decided not to bring criminal charges against the park's management. This is due to the park's public apology and pledge to immediately cease its separation policy.
Weinstein instructed the police and state attorney's office to act forcefully in any similar instances.
The decision was taken after Justice Minister Tzipi Livni approached Weinstein following the incident.
The park was accused of, and admitted to, holding separating visiting days for Jewish and Arab students. This was apparently the reason why the park turned down an Arab teacher who tried to buy tickets for a day designated for Jewish students.
