The author should learn the meaning of words like apartheid before he makes comparisons to South Africa & Israel SOUTH AFRICA The blacks were just as much citizens of the country as the whites officially. The difference was that because of their skin color they were not allowed to travel on the same busses, live in the same areas, do certain jobs, vote & many more basic rights even though they were all citizens of the same country. The palestinians are not Israeli citizens and never have been so they are not legally entitled to any of the rights given to Israelis. The palestinian issue is a territorial conflict, one of many going on worldwide but the only one that anybody seems to take any notice of. Israel legally captured a piece of land in 1967 from Jordan & Egypt and now another group of arabs want a state in this land. The fact Israel is the occupier and will remain so until it agrees to give it up doesn't entitle palestinians to the same rights as Israeli citiznes.
