Use of the term "Apartheid"

Reader comment on item: Right wing hardliners gaining ground in Israel
in response to reader comment: Israel discussion on Press TV

That the Ramallah participant continually used the term "apartheid" is typical, is a falsehood, ignores all the reasons for the need for Israelis' security, and the acceptance by Israel to allow control by the Waqf of the Jewish state's most important holy site - the Temple Mount.

The term is an easy shortcut for the representative to dismiss wholesale any discussion counter to his narrative, and is in stark contrast to the objective and logical points made by Dr. Pipes.
