    If people say that WB-JS are not part of Israel, and as such the settlements there are illegal, and can be construed as movement of persons by occupier into occupied lands. Okay, let's accept that argument for a moment. if that is the case then how is Israel an Apartheid state to WB and Gaza? when those lands by the same admission are not part of Israel, as such why do the persons their deserves rights of Citizen in Israel, WHEN THEY ARE NOT, CITIZENS LIVING IN ISRAEL. So if Israel Apartheid week is therefore not about settlements and WB why are speakers at these events discussing it? For example Roo, made a point about how israel apartheid week isn't about WB-Gaza but Israeli Arabs, as such then why does the conference focus, especially here in TDot, on WB-Gaza? The lack of a unified language as to how and why Israel is an apartheid state, coupled with the fact that much of those arguments re. settlements-apartheid are false, cast doubt on the aims of the conference
