It is becoming increasingly clear that the hopes in 2011 of a new dawn sparked by the toppling of autocratic leaders in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen were little more than pie in the sky. Nevertheless, the genie of inevitable change has been let out of the bottle.
For some reason the passing of Ariel Sharon after the withdrawal from Gaza and the long years in a coma have taken away some of the bitterness that many felt about Ariel Sharon.
If your "opinion" is that Israel is an apartheid state, engaged daily in crimes against humanity, and Zionism is a form of racism, then all you have to do is selectively point to events and statements that taken out of context appear to support your opinion.
