TRUTH spoken eloquently.

I wish this video would go viral and get 100 Million hits!
It is so eloquent and honest! It tears a hole right through the canard most often slung at Israel and does so in such a compelling manner. It clearly shows that those who call Israel apartheid are not only being dishonest, they are also being extremely insensitive to the millions who suffered under the real apartheid. Thank you Kenneth Meshoe, thank you Prager University, and thank you Aish.com!

Bravo !!!!This is one of the best assessments of the true situation regarding the claims of "Apartheid" in Israel. Bishop Tutu, you should be ashamed of yourself.

Terrific! Should be shown when and where "Israel Apartheid Week'
I know from some of the comments you will get, that this video will reach some of the intended audience. Better yet, this should be screened on those campuses that try to promote the lie that Israel is an apartheid state

Much the same abuse of a word as we see used of Holocaust. But the most abusive use of a word is the word Liberal.

This Video Truth is Undeniable Truth
This Truth, that many don't want to hear,Should not watched if your thinking is queer,Should Truth disturb your sensitive mind,This Truth, is not for your sensitive kind.If you feel you must, suffer in your insanity,So, someday the world can be free to see,Seeing truth, today, removes this forgivable pain,Or, wait unto Judgment, for Eternal Loss, not Gain.AMEN

The conditions described for Apartheid South Africa also prevailed in the USA until the mid-1960's and was called "Segregation." I am sure that there still live Americans - from both sides of the "fence" - who remember this and can also compare their experiences with life in Israel.

Thanks to the Rt. Hon. Mr. Moshoe M.P.
I was born in South Africa too. So I am in a position to coroborate what you have said in your video. I was one of the Jewish kids who were opposed to apartheid, because as a Jew I could empathize with what your people were suffering. I was forced to flee South Africa in 1966 to escape arrest under the 180 day detention law. As a Jew and as a human being I thank you for the humanity that we share.

Missing the point
Respectfully, AISH.com repeatedly misses the point when she tries to debunk the falsehood that "Israel is an apartheid state". When people of goodwill level this accusation, they are not referring to the internal structure & dynamics of "legitimate Israel" (the one whose borders are internationally accepted), but are accusing Israel of maintaining an apartheid-like control over the disputed areas (such as by military means, controlling movements of goods and people, dominating natural resources, building roads exclusively for settlers, etc). While the latter assertions may or may not be correct, THAT is really the issue for much of the world. This view asserts that Israel took over "Palestinian territories" in 1967, & that she treats Arabs in Israel vs in the territories in a completely different way(with the latter being apartheid-like and objectionable). It behooves AISH.com to explain to the readership what life for Palestinians in the territories is really like: what kind of control the Palestinian Authority exerts over the Arabs in the disputed territories vs. what kind of control Israel does & then compare that to S. African apartheid.
