Words Matter: African-American Student Group blasts Students for Justice in Palestine on “Apartheid” lie

I attended college during the the height of the anti-Apartheid movement in the US during the mid to late 80s, and recall the raw emotion of African-American students involved in efforts combat the hideous racially based regime in South Africa.

And though the campus environment in the US during that time was also defined by an increasingly virulent hostility to Israel in the context of the First Intifada, I recall the solidarity between Black and Jewish groups over the issue of Apartheid and so, all these years later, am heartened to see the following passionate and unequivocal condemnation of Palestinian groups who engage in the morally unserious charge that Israel is an Apartheid state.

Here is the full-page ad, entitled “Words Matter”, which was placed in newspapers on April 7 by an African-American student group called Vanguard Leadership Group.
