Le triomphe du gros bon sens (message à Khadir) Israël Palestine Revue de presse

National Post

Black student association insulted when Israel called apartheid state
National Post

Let’s see the “progressives” figure this one out.

A U.S.-based alliance of black student organizations, the Vanguard Leadership Group, has run ads in the student newspapers on campuses where it’s active, calling for pro-Palestinian groups to stop calling Israel an apartheid state. In the ad, Vanguard writes to members of the group Students for Justice in Palestine, and asks that they “immediately stop referring to Israel as an apartheid society and to acknowledge that the Arab minority in Israel enjoys full citizenship with voting rights and representation in government.”

They probably shouldn’t hold their breath on that one.

Vanguard’s efforts aren’t likely to change the tenor of the debate in the Middle East, but that young black Americans, many of whom must still overcome genuine prejudice to reach their high goals, would stand up and call out the so-called progressives for their “deliberate misappropriation of words and flagrant mischaracterizations of Israel” is a welcome development.
