I found this 10 minute speech to be very important for what it holds; the speaker managed to skillfully relate the South African struggle for freedom to the Palestinian one. The speaker also notes that the Israelis are currently about to achieve what the nationalists in South Africa didn’t get to achieve during the time of Apartheid in South Africa — that is to create a community of separateness. The speaker also talks about Israeli policies of ethnic cleansing and not allowing Palestinians back home once they leave; he says this is far more dangerous than real apartheid ever was.
Watch this brilliant speech:
