It seems to me that Carter's demonization of Israel by misusing the word apartheid against it, coupled by his watering down of what the ARABS of the
north are doing to the blacks in the south, WREAKS of politicization. He amplifies one situation and tones down another all for the purpose of
strengthening public attention on Israel and off of Darfur.
Actually, I think you have a point and am impressed at the presentation you have made, although I think that there is a double-edged sword at work
here. Most certainly, the tide is turning, and the foreign policy, of the main investors in the Israeli/Palestine issue, the US and UK have been
developing a more pro-Arab stance, largely as a means of protecting their future interests. Nothing new there, but also, by comparing the Israeli
situation to the Aparteid they are belittling the experience of South Africa, and African civil rights movement in general, which given that Nelson
Mandela is, very sadly, waning, I personally find this very troubling.
Interesting. Thank you.
