Comparisons harm Mideast peace efforts

Nimer Sultany, in his Another Voice, made comparisons of Israel and its leaders to David Duke, Jim Crow and apartheid. Sultany is a Palestinian teaching at Tel Aviv University. How many Israelis are teaching in Saudi Arabian, Syrian or Iranian universities? Israel needs to negotiate with someone who believes that a Jewish state can exist in Israel. Sultany’s comparisons do nothing to further peace, and his falsehoods only serve to promote propaganda.
