    he knows what side his bread is buttered on. He is correct to say that the situation in Israel and the Occupied Territories is not South African apartheid but it cannot be denied that Israel supports a state sanctioned racial discrimination that comes very close to apartheid. Arab citizens of Israel are permitted to vote. True. But the Arab parties are powerless within the zionist construct. They are a sham meant to show off Israel as a democracy. Do Arab members of the Knesset ever rank as serious ministers or heads of state? Of course not. There have been Deputy Ministers and there is a Bedouin in the FM but really, could one see a President of Israel being an Arab citizen. Various reports and studies of various commissions have shown the blatant and hidden forms of discrimination that exist against Arab citizens of Israel. None of the recommendations for ameliorating their dire situation have been implemented. As for the occupied territories, it is by any definiation out and out apartheid. That Goldstone is trying to cover his ass and make nice to the litbulls of zionism over his earlier report does not do away with that reality. And it is becoming increasingly worse. Staeling of more private Palestinian land and populating it with the maximum number of Jews as you simultaneously dispossess the indigenous population.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
