“While the world is busy understanding the revolution parades sweeping what the orientalist calls the Middle East, something groundbreaking happened in Israel. Earlier this month, senior Israeli diplomat Illan Baruch resigned in protest to the policies of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.
Interestingly enough, ambassador Baruch had been serving in South Africa for the last 18 months prior to the resignation. He was in a country that knew of apartheid, lived through apartheid, fought apartheid and won against apartheid (the institutionalized kind). Surely, the statesman must have grinded his teeth every now and then thinking of what tomorrow’s Israel would look like should Israel maintain its withstanding policies.”
