Top UN Guy Calls Israel Apartheid State

The UN General Assembly President Miguel D'Escoto Brockmann called Israel's policies toward the Palestinians apartheid yesterday.

Ha'aretz says:
He added: "We must not be afraid to call something what it is." Brockmann stressed that it was important for the United Nations to use the heavily-charged term since it was the institution itself that had passed the International Convention against the crime of apartheid.
Israel's ambassador to the UN earlier called Brockmann an "Israel hater" for hugging Iran's President Ahmadinejad. Further evidence that one cannot criticize Israel without being dubbed an anti-semitic.
