Sullivan calls Israel an apartheid state

Just add this to the list of offensive statements by Andrew Sullivan.
I cannot read Netanyahu's mind. But I can observe Israel's actions. They intend to occupy and colonize the entire West Bank for ever. They may allow some parceled enclaves for Palestinians, but they will maintain a big military presence on the Eastern border of West Bank, and they will sustain this with raw military power and force. I certainly cannot see any other rationale for their actions these past few years that makes any sense at all. Many Israeli politicians now use the term "apartheid" for this future.
An intent to remain in Judea and Samaria 'forever' including on the 'Eastern border of the West Bank' does not constitute apartheid. It constitutes self-defense. That's what the US Army said right after the Six Day War. Of course, some people would like to forget that now.

why is it called Judea & Samaria?

Because it belongs to Arab Muslims?

Somehow I'm confused. Can somebody help me?

Has this guy Andrew Sullivan ever actually visited Israel and traveled around to see the area for himself?

Andrew Sullivan, who also writes for the London Times, likes to think of himself as a "provocateur"

I have designed him a t-shirt which reads: I pimp for Islam!

i love how andrew feels for the arabs

maybe he should try and live among them

however, because of his lifestyle, he would be killed after only a few days

Israel cannot be defended without holding onto the mountain ridges of Yesha and the Jordan valley. In antiquity, the Jews lived in the mountains and not the coastal plain. Its time to get more Jews into the mountains for the country's future security.
