    Very useful piece of advice. As a Polish Goy, I often get engaged in the discussion and find myself standing on the Jewish barricade opposing various types of numerously and erroneously repeated bollocks.

    Would be nice to see more of similar articles.

    Many thanks for yesterday’s evening, it was splendid.

    Good to know. I wanted to double-check whether it’s fair to use the specific word “Apartheid” to describe elements of Israeli policy or not?

    Steve, There’s disagreement about whether it’s appropriate to describe Israel as an apartheid state. I would use the word apartheid because of the ingrained racial divisions in the state apparatus. However it’s not a question of whether you think apartheid is the best descriptor, what is clear is that calling Israel an apartheid state is not an anti-semitic statement even if it’s an incorrect one
