    Ever wonder why we keep on hearing that Israel is like apartheid South Africa, when it is nothing of the sort? The reason that this is continually pushed in the press by the Palestinians and their extreme liberal supports, is that they want the chaos and attention around the upcoming vote to act as a catylist for sanctions against Israel, much like what was done to South Africa in the 70's and 80's. This plan is going to backfire on the Palestinians as Israel is nothing like South Africa. Jews have a strong, compelling case. The story is not just about Palestinians. Jews have a longer history in this land than do Muslims. Radical Islam has a violent history that it cannot sweep under the carpet, like killing anyone selling land to Jews. I want peace with you but if any of my borthers sell you land we will slit their throats. Yalah peace!
