... enjoy the way the word "apartheid" makes Israel1sters froth at the mouth. Let's be clear: to call the situation inside Israel proper apartheid is an abuse of the term. Yes, there is institutional, state-supported discrimination, but it is nothing like the apartheid system. But what the Israel1sters don't seem to get is that (1) that it's not "apartheid" doesn't make it all right; and (2) that what happens in the Occupied Territories is indeed remarkably like apartheid. Moreover, they don't understand the political effectiveness of using provocative terms, even when those have only a distant relationship with objective truth. For that they could learn from the settlers' movement, whose talk of "anti-Jew discrimination" is even further from the truth, but seems - alas - to gain some sympathy in Israel. Not, of course, in the rest of the world.
