"...but we never saw tanks and planes firing at a civilian population..." This is essentially untrue: The IDF does not fire indiscriminantly at the civilian Palestinian population, but rather at militia members who are armed with sophisticated weapons which they use to target the Israeli civilian population. The Apartheid regime actually did use disproportionate military force against their opponents, including planes, artillery, and armoured vehicles, as well as simply firing upon unarmed protesting civilians with automatic weapons. To equate the two situations on this issue is a twisted over-simplification that regrettably has been swallowed hook, line & sinker by a pathetically gullible Gidon Levy (known as Gideon to his Anglo admirers).
