    "Talk to a person who has been to both places - South Africa and Israel - and you`ll hear them say "No comparisons!" Do a little homework!' - William You are right William. We should find out what people who have been to both places say. Consider, for example, what Desmond Tutu said (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/1957644.stm) about his visit to the Holy Land "it reminded me so much of what happened to us black people in South Africa". He also said "the humiliation of the Palestinians at checkpoints and roadblocks, suffering like us when young white police officers prevented us from moving about". He also gave some advice to Israel by saying it will "never get true security and safety through oppressing another people". "As for the settlements - they are now gone from Gaza and it`s up to the Palestinians to take care of themselves from now on." - Willian Israel is not gone yet. In fact it still tries to control the border with Egypt and the airspace and coast of Gaza. Sounds more like a big prison to me. Also Israel leaves about a million refugees in Gaza (out of a total of 1.3 million Palestinians) whom Israel continues to refuse to allow to return to their homes in Israel as per UN 194. This has resulted in many long-term problems for Palestinians in Gaza including water salination in the tiny overpopulated area.
