The author fails to include in his editorial several important factors. However, I will only use one. The state of Israel was attacked immediately upon its foundin, in addition, the PLO was founded with the sole purpose of destroying Israel, 3 years before the six day war. when some one wants to kill you and could care less about who you are or what your position is. (If we are to be intellectually honest) The reaction is not similar to apartheid that is self defense.In addition, I take issue that Jews who came to Israel are like the Dutch. The Dutch came to gain from the natural resources of South Africa and maintain their position to gain economically. What natural resources did/does Israel have? diamonds? iron ore? etc.. No what roads or building were there in the 1800s. And unlike the Dutch we have a right to be in Israel.
