Brothers in arms

Many in South Africa are well aware of the accurate comparisons between its dark past and Israel’s shameful present. From Haaretz:

Israel is in large part still paying for its original sin – forging comprehensive security ties with the Apartheid regime and “selling its soul and morality to a racist, oppressive devil.” In the words of former South African ambassador to Tel Aviv Fumanekile Gqiba: “Israel must refrain from putting a question mark in front of our relations with the Palestinians. It must remember that it was, in the past, of the same flesh as the apartheid regime,” he said.
