    Agnes, having grown up under Apartheid the sidelining of progressive, peace-loving Israelis resonates with my own experience. In South Africa, a large minority of whites were bitterly opposed to Apartheid, and in fact some of the prominent heroes of the anti-Apartheid struggle were white. In my own country there was also a feeling of helplessness sometimes among progressive, egalitarian whites confronting their seeming permanent, if large, minority status in the political framework. But we were far from helpless. The existence of such a sizable block of the privileged class that was actually opposed to the system that perpetuated that privilege, made it more difficult for the Apartheid government to hide its excesses and portray the situation as being other than it was. Its hard to control the movements, access and speech of the very class of people youre sacrificing someone else' freedom and self-determination for,without resorting to tactics that inflame the whole privileged class
