      The decision to bring young Palestinians to South Africa came out of a PYM February workshop in Malmo, Sweden where some Palestinian youth expressed their reluctance to use a racial lexicon and the apartheid analogy to define the Palestinian struggle. For these youth, discourses on race were inherently linked to struggles of segregation.   The country's new writers see a world beyond the simple shades of black and white. ''Racial issues, they just don't dominate my life,'' explained Mr. Author: Rachel L. Swarns.

        The most important conclusion of the report was that by careful consideration of the relevant evidence, Israel is guilty of the crime of apartheid as defined in the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid with regard to the Palestinian people as a whole; that is, Palestinians living under occupation as refugee and in involuntary exile, . During the s, the apartheid government came under increasing internal pressure. The National Party attempted a political solution to the crisis it faced by creating the cosmetic Tricameral Parliament. This system of governance tampered with, but did not challenge apartheid. The reforms had the opposite affect to what the apartheid regime.

      Any time that a politician or commentator compares the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to South Africa under apartheid, the response is swift denunciation. Yet many prominent, respected academics and politicians—including Jimmy Carter—have drawn such parallels, arguing that Israel’s treatment of its Arab-Israeli citizens and the people of the occupied territories amounts to no less a system.   The demise of apartheid in South Africa twenty years ago was a turning point in Black emancipation on a par with the abolition of slavery and the collapse of colonial empire. It may well be seen as a moment when race — and other ascribed characteristics such as gender — began to lose their political significance in human affairs.
