Why does this make me think of the ending of Fiddler on the Roof?

And talk about adding insult to injury:

WingNut It's historically inaccurate to use of the word Apartheid in relation to any so-called Israeli act of "aggression". It's not accurate and even racist to use such a term. Although politically fashionable in the "left" circles it has been condemed in this context at a recent Apartheid convention. I suggest you purge your ignorance with a trip to the Middle East and compare the "progressive" Arab states including so-called Palestine with the only other democracy in the middle East (you can guess which one I am refering to).
Cheers

But why make a comparison to Turkey. It isn't really part of the Middle East, or is it? Ataturk says no, but others disagree, pope Nazinger for instance.

While this dork is gone now, I think it remains worth noting that both Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela have visited Palestine and concluded that what's happening there is Apartheid.

Now, no doubt these two are well thought of in "fashionable leftist circles", whatever the hell those might be. But I think they've got at least as much of an idea what Apartheid might be as the Israel apologists we get wandering around on babble.
