Apologists for apartheid Israel unmasked

Thank you Donald Trump for having the brazen effrontery and stupidity to reveal the American Emperor in all his naked glory.

No more Israeli dictated peace process façades from the USA. It’s all been a 50-year sham so those apologists for Israel had better shut up and act for real democracy in apartheid Israel by joining the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement to help birth a single state with equal rights and votes for everybody.

Hendrik Verwoerd, widely described as a key architect of apartheid, was the far-right National Party’s propagandist, political strategist and, ultimately, party leader.

In 1961, as South African Prime Minister, he noted that Israel was built on land taken ‘from the Arabs after the Arabs lived there for a thousand years.’

The point was to express his approval and to highlight Zionism’s common cause with the Afrikaner pioneers: ‘In that, I agree with them. Israel, like South Africa, is an apartheid state.’

    Good God! what sort of person would try to inhabit a country owned by another group for A THOUSAND years?! The Sheer Hypocrisy!
    After all, we dont have any type of apartheid here, do we? We just have certain areas where certain people live and certain people with a much higher rate of incarceration and unemployment, lower life expectancy, higher infant mortality, higher suicide rate….

    If you don’t believe me, take a look around the country. Tip: start at Yarrabah (around 10km as the crow flies from Cairns, a million miles by culture and opportunities…ever heard of it?)…then go west…about 2500 km west till you hit Broome. Then talk to me about apartheid and ‘land taken from other people’….
