My issue with Kasrils' opinion and the obvious slant this author has taken with this article (if you'd like to call it that, more a tribute!) is the bias. I am one who believes there are two sides to this conflict. There is a reason for the Apache helicopters and a reason for the stones but that doesn't mean it's right to abandon one of those truths. This conflict is a lot more complex than Kasrils sees it and it's a shame that he would compare the resolution of Apartheid to what he wants to happen in the Middle East. It is a sad and pathetic analogy. He mentions pogroms but fails to make the connection that the country of Israel prevents the global Jewish community from being victims to such nasty campaigns of hate such as pogroms. The solution to anti-Semitism on a worldwide basis was the creation of the state of Israel as a Jewish homeland. SA's freedom fighters believed in it, the UN voted for it. We can resolve this situation by seeing both sides, not ignoring one.
