John errs when he suggests that Americans "know" of the vast similarities between South African apartheid and the Israeli equivalent. The overwhelming majority of Americans live within the Israeli/AIPAC matrix--a false world of deception, lies, and coverups, where there is no occupationm and Israel has always sought peace but has been thwarted by blood thirty Palestinians. They are totally oblivious to the existence of the occupation--the very word is virtually verbotin in mainstream US media. Nor are they aware that the only peace which Israel has ever sought was one where the Palestinians quitely acquisced to the wholesale theft of their land. They have bought into the oxymoron of Israel as a Jewish democracy. Unlike in Israel, there is little or no discussion in the US of the immorality of Israel's actions. How can there be when lies are sold as the truth and reality turned on its head. If only Americans knew the truth....and if the few that knew the truth dared speak it...
