View from America: The ‘Palestine’ Purimspiel

A couple of snippets:

The “Israeli apartheid” charge, popularized in this country by former president Jimmy Carter’s appalling recent book, is, of course, an insult to the sufferings of black South Africans and so divorced from the truth as to render any debate about it to be mere absurdity.

(…)

Those Jews who play a part in this campaign – be they feckless American intellectuals or extremist Israelis with queasy consciences about the messy business of conducting a long-term war against terrorists – need to understand that the undermining of Israel is not a game in which they may dabble without a cost that will ultimately be paid in innocent Jewish blood.

A long, yet very interesting, and poignant column.
