"Apartheid" is yet another example of a word selected for its emotional impact and shock value rather than its actual meaning by the Palestinians and their naive Western apologists. Its theprecise same reason that they use analogies to the Nazis,becauseitis offensive to Jews.

It is a slanderous accusation of racism where there is none, merely as away to cast Israel in an un--deserved negative light.
