This talk of Israeli 'apartheid' is absurd

DAVID Morrison (Letters, February 4) takes Kevin Myers to task for describing Israel as "the one and only democracy" in the Middle East.
He argues: "Israel . . . has ruled over millions of Palestinians in the territories that it has occupied by force since 1967, without according them any democratic rights, (which) demonstrates a 40-year record of contempt for democracy."
He fails to realise that the status of these territories is a matter of dispute and will remain so until the conflict is resolved by a comprehensive peace treaty.
