Criticizing Israel is not wrong, in fact, go to Israel and you will find a ton of people who criticize Israel openly and for various reasons. The problem arises when people harshly label Israel with titles like ‘Apartheid State’ without first looking at the reality within Israel and also without applying an equally critical eye to the surrounding regions and countries in the Middle-East. Below is only one example of what I mean. These statements made by Abbas hardly stir up any attention while there is an entire week devoted to ‘Israeli Apartheid’. This is a double standard.
