Yes, this is apartheid South Africa

South African Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu:

“We hope the occupation of the Palestinian territory by Israel will end. There is a cry of anguish from the depth of my heart, to my spiritual relatives. Please, please hear the call, the noble call of our scripture. Because of what I experienced in South Africa, I harbour hope for Israel and the Palestinian territories. I experienced a déjà vu when I encountered a security checkpoint that Palestinians must negotiate every day and be demeaned, all their lives. When I hear, ”˜that used to be my home,’ it is painfully similar to the treatment in South Africa when coloureds had no rights.”
