    Thats a good point you bring up. Lets compare Israeli arabs. Lets compare them first to the people of South Africa as you brought up. Israeli arabs can vote, serve in Knesset, and enjoy freedoms like the one you are expressing from your safe computer in the USA. The blacks of South Africa could do none of those things. While we are on the subject of South Africa, with a few exceptions, Mandela and his counterparts chose passive, peaceful resistance, and they were rewarded for their patience and their choice to prove they were human and deserved the world's respect. Now, lets compare Israeli arabs to the rest of the Arabs in the surrounding countries....If I am not mistaken Saddam Hussein was arab, and we know what he did to his people, not to mention the other kings, Mullahs, and others who still butcher their own people for things that we brush off, i.e. a woman showing her face. Even now, western journalists who go into Arab sections of Gaza and other terrorist controlled areas shoot footage of arab children playing such fun games as "kill the jew." These journalists are generally sympathetic to your cause for whatever reason, and try to humanize even the most vile hate mongers. And what do those journalists get in return for trying to help you? You kill them. Good job by you. Stop comparing Apartheid to Israel, they are not related. Stop comparing the systematic extermination of a people (the holocaust) with a nation defending itself in a time of war. And yes, this is a war. When Gaza can no longer claim the presence of settlers as an antagonist and proceed to attack Israel, it will be treated like an act of war. Enjoy your freedom of speech from your safe computer in the US of A. Enjoy it, because if you decide to go back to your native country, you might find you dont have that option. Have a brilliant day.
