Bashing Israel with label of 'apartheid'

DAVID Morrison's diatribe (February 4) against Israel is typical of the twisted logic of the 'Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign'.

He uses the old canard of describing Israel as an apartheid state. He could not be more wrong.

Israeli Arabs make up a fifth of Israel's population. They enjoy political and legal equality with other Israeli citizens; they serve in the judiciary like other Israelis; they have the same voting rights as other Israeli citizens; and have representation in the Knesset.
