Violence is violence. There's no point comparing the 2. What went on under SA's regime is in the past and what happens in Israel/Palestine keeps going on. Both sides are guilty of perpetuating it. It will take very strong politicians to end the mess over there and I'm not sure if there are any who can. It would be more helpful if the US stopped supplying military and 'intelligence' to all sides and worked for real peace in the region. But I suppose that isn't in her interest.
