Color Of Hate

Yet another clueless, antisemitic, liberal activist with no accurate knowledge of history:

Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple, refused to authorize an Israeli publishing house to republish her prize-winning work, citing what she called Israel’s “apartheid state.”

In a June 9 letter to Yediot Books, Walker said she would not allow the publication of the book by the printing house because “Israel is guilty of apartheid and persecution of the Palestinian people, both inside Israel and also in the Occupied Territories.” [...]

Walker said Israelis policies were “worse” than the segregation she suffered as an American youth and said South Africans had told her it was worse than Apartheid.

Because those South Africans are such authorities on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict...

I wonder if Walker knows, or even cares, that Arabs in Israel are treated better and more fairly than Jews are treated in Muslim societies, especially in the Palestinian territories. If not, its either plain stupidity or willful ignorance.
