South African MP who lived through apartheid slams Palestinian apartheid claims against Israel

Dr.-Kenneth-MeshoeRev. Dr. Kenneth Meshoe scolds the Palestinians and their left wing supporters. “On my recent trip to San Francisco says Meshoe, I was deeply disturbed to learn of the posters accusing Israel of apartheid. As a black South African who lived under apartheid, this system was implemented in South Africa to subjugate people of color and deny them a variety of their rights. In my view, Israel cannot be compared to apartheid in South Africa. Those who make this accusation expose their ignorance of what apartheid really is.”

SF Examiner (h/t Tundra Tabloids)“I believe that it is slanderous and deceptive for Israel’s self-defense measures against the terrorists’ campaign of suicide bombing, rocket attacks and other acts of terrorism that have occurred, and continue to occur, to be labeled as apartheid. I am shocked by the claim that the free, diverse, democratic state of Israel practices apartheid. This ridiculous accusation trivializes the word apartheid, minimizing and belittling the magnitude of the racism and suffering endured by South Africans of color.” 

“The misapplication of the term apartheid makes a mockery of a grievous injustice and threatens to undermine the true meaning of the term. In my view, Israel is a model of democracy, inclusion and pluralism that can be emulated by many nations, particularly in the Middle East.”
