The Age States Israeli “Apartheid” as Fact

In a report carried by Australia’s The Age, notice how the term “Israeli apartheid” is taken as a given in the absence of quotation marks:

Sixteen protestors who demonstrated against Israeli apartheid at a business in Melbourne’s CBD have had the bulk of charges dismissed. …

Mr Garnett said the protests were organised and attended by members of a coalition against Israeli apartheid as part of a campaign of Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions which had included members of a Socialist Alliance Group.

This shoddy piece of writing contributes to the false portrayal of Israel as an apartheid state. All it takes is a couple of quotation marks to correct the record… unless The Age thinks otherwise.
