    As an anti apartheid activist of long standing back South Africa, it is clear that Amos Oz has absolutely NO idea of what Apartheid is or what it stands for. With respect, I recommend that he read up on the subject prior to making such fallacious comparisons. It s manifestly a malicious calumny used as a weapon aimed at the delegitimization the 'right' (which is his right). Oz should read Prof GIddi Shimoni on the subject: "A foundational element of the false equation is the disingenuous transforming of the term ‘apartheid' from the description of a singular historical phenomenon in a particular time and place - South Africa from about 1948 to 1994 - into a generic concept. This deceptive device functions much like use of the term ‘holocaust' to describe any and all human disasters. It obscures apartheid's constitutive core, racism, as well as its actual historical context, South Africa".
