Look Who Says It Isn't Apartheid!!

Vanguard Leadership Group (VLG), a leadership development academy and honor society for top students at the nation’s historically black colleges and universities, placed an ad in several college newspapers objecting to the use of the term "apartheid" to describe Israel. They wrote:
The use of the word "apartheid" by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) in its characterization of Israel is patently false and deeply offensive to all who feel a connection to the State of Israel.

Under apartheid, Black South Africans could not vote and had no rights in a country in which they were the overwhelming majority of the population.  SJP has chosen to manipulate rather than inform with this illegitimate analogy.  Therefore, we request that you immediately stop referring to Israel as an apartheid society and acknowledge that the Arab minority in Israel enjoys full citizenship with voting rights and representation in the government.
