CAMERA's Campus Fellow in Arizona Exposes "Apartheid Week" in Op-Ed

An excerpt from CAMERA campus fellow Aaron Jacobs' guest column in the Arizona Daily Wildcat, University of Arizona's student newspaper:

It’s countries like Iran, Jordan, Syria and Saudi Arabia that should be criticized for the lack of rights their citizens receive, not Israel, which is the only democratic country in the region. As someone who has lived in Israel, I have witnessed the highs and lows of the Israeli government. The truth is that Israel is not perfect, but no country is. However, to even link Israel with the word “apartheid” is not only prejudiced but very much inaccurate. ...

Instead of falsely accusing Israel as an apartheid state this year, let’s come together and celebrate the freedoms of Israel’s citizens in efforts to work together towards a peaceful future.
