"They are free to do as they please, but it's atrocious," he said of the participating Israelis. "I think they don't understand the analogy they are making... which is insulting to those who suffered under apartheid." Those who suffer and live under apartheid are best to know what apartheid is. For one, can any Zionist Jew honestly say to a Palestinian living in the occupied territories " you are free to do as you please"? You are "free to go where you please"? That's the crux of the problem and therefore, what is insulting is someone living in Britain telling Palestinians and Israeli Jews, in this case those three honorable distinguished Israeli academics and civil right advocates - that they don't know what they are talking about when they label Israel as an apartheid state. Who is best to know? A British apologist for Israel or an Israeli who fought against DEMOLITION of Palestinian homes? Why would any Jew want to stop the IDF from demolishing a Palestinian home? Can any Zionist person answer that question without questioning the sanity and loyalty of that person? I think not. It is a sad commentary indeed.
