    Calling Israel an Apartheid State is, at the very least, screaming Fire in a Crowded Theatre - and is never justified. The added implication of libel, especially given the history of the Jewish people- where mere words inflamed catastrophic violence and death, makes Cotlers stance irresponsible. This new mindset may simply be an effort by Cotler to re-reposition himself as a somebody after his party's disastrous decimation and his near defeat in Canada's recent election.
