We only started debating about the Apartheid state that Israel's PM, Netanyahu, intends to build for the Palestinians a year ago, when I noticed this article contending that the 6th celebration of Apartheid Week is now. That means the concept of Apartheid as the Palestinian state to be is at least six years old.
Behind the times, I guess.
Philip Weiss advises on this celebration:
