    No disrespect american.......but you really don't understand the situation in Israel / Palestine. Thus, your comment doesn't surprise me (blind ignorance to this situation is far too commonplace). Israel's apartheid is based on a) it's complete military occupation of the west bank (over 400 military checkpoints, illegal settlements and the annexing more land continuously, the control of air, sea, land) b) it's combined corrupt control of the gaza borders with Egypt, and full control of gaza land and sea space) c) it's less than equal treatment of it's own arab citizens (less services to arab neighbourhoods, special id/licence plates, and limitations that correspond). Some of the leading scholars on south african apartheid have been very outspoken in Israel being many times worse in its policies than South African Apartheid ever was. Please don't just take the news for what it is....learn a little, do a bit of research. If American's did a better job of thinking for themselves everyone in the world would be better off.
