The Apartheid State Libel

The accusation that Israel is an “apartheid state” is a deliberate misuse of language as part of a larger strategy to erode the Israeli state’s legitimacy through what Professor Gerald Steinberg described as the Durban Strategy: just as South Africa’s apartheid regime had to be destroyed (and rightly so), Israel  has to be destroyed too.

Here, in addition to HonestReporting’s own communiques dealing with this issue, we also present some further resources that put paid to this false analogy:
