On the issue of the term 'apartheid',
This review is from: Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid (Paperback)
Whatever one's opinion of the issues and points raised by Mr Carter in this book I think it is important to clarify what the author himself see's as a problem with how the book has been perceived. According to comments that can be found in Wikipedia he has said:
"It's not Israel. The book has nothing to do with what's going on inside Israel which is a wonderful democracy, you know, where everyone has guaranteed equal rights and where, under the law, Arabs and Jews who are Israelis have the same privileges about Israel. That's been most of the controversy because people assume it's about Israel. It's not."
"I've never alleged that the framework of apartheid existed within Israel at all, and that what does exist in the West Bank is based on trying to take Palestinian land and not on racism. So it was a very clear distinction."
