SEGREGATION TODAY, SEGREGATION TOMORROW, SEGREGATION FOREVER! | 2002-05-18

Now to the awful truth: what Netanyahu is proposing is a permanent state of segregation between Jews and Arabs.

Us old segregationists used to wear a white button with five letters on it written in blue: NEVER. Everything we said would happen with integration is exactly what happened with integration. I leave it to all the other self-styled Southern Spokemen to beg forgiveness for having opposed integration and saying it wasn't a wonderful idea.

It was NEVER a good idea, so there is no reason for me to join the Southern Crawl (THE SOUTHERN CRAWL DOESN'T WORK--September 23, 2000).

So when the Likkud Party said "Never!," it touched a chord.

On the other hand, I have made it very, very clear that I have strong and lifelong Arab sympathies (September 13, 2001 - MY ARAB SYMPATHIES).

I can understand militant Arabs and I can understand militant Israelis. It is the Generally Accepted Position (GAP) which all the respectable people accept that is utterly ridiculous.
