Of course its a sham. When 1 in 5 Israelis is Arab/Palestinian, it is clear that theese folks are just calling people names. In SA, they kept black people down on account of their race so that white people could benefit from their deprivations. With Israel and the Palestinians, the situation arises from all too many attempts to destroy Israel and kill Israelis through war and terrorism. Keeping people down on account of race is wrong. Keeping people from killing you, your family, your friends, your neighbors and your country is simply common sense. People who cannot rationally discuss the difference and instead resort to calling names are not helping to bring peace. What do they expect, Israelis will feel bad they are protecting themselves because they are called names? They should let people kill them to avid some boycott? I wouldn't hold my breath for that. Better to find a way for the Palestinians to accept Israel so that they can each live freely.
