Suppose that Israel had completely rejected the Apartheid state. Would the present South African youth movements and trade unions now react any less virulently against Israel? Most likely not. People are fickle. The flavor of the month is to bash Israel. Perhaps the 1948 flavor was more favorable to the Jewish people given that they were humbly weak and had suffered enough at the time. Now however, Israel is 'being arrogant' by standing up and being strong. What audacity to cry out in public 'ich bin a yid!' and to be proud of it! And so the far left reject Israel regardless of Israel's actions throughout history. This is not surprising. Real racism is found at that point in circle where extremes meet; where the far left meet the fascists. Never mind Israel, it is the far left that in its hidden racist ideology has far more in common with the old Apartheid regime than we realize.
