Black South African Slams Politicians Who Call Israel An Apartheid State

October 13, 2014

A black South African said those who charge that Israel is an apartheid state are shaming the memory of the real apartheid in South Africa.

Kenneth Meshoe, a member of the South African parliament, lived through apartheid and said that Israel is not an example of that segregation.

It is "inaccurate," "malicious," and a "slander" he says.

Claiming Israel is apartheid is "a lie about the real Israel," Meshoe says in the video. "It is a lie about the real apartheid."

He urges those who believe Israel is apartheid to travel to the country and experience it firsthand.

Black South Africans lived in apartheid under the National Party from 1948 to 1994.
