Against Israeli Apartheid
Friend of the blog Ethan Heitner, a comics artist, has drawn this wonderful strip based on Desmond Tutu and Ian Urbina's classic 2002 article "Against Israeli Apartheid," illustrating these lines:
Yesterday's South African township dwellers can tell you about today's life in the Occupied Territories. To travel only blocks in his own homeland, a grandfather waits on the whim of a teenage soldier. More than an emergency is needed to get to a hospital; less than a crime earns a trip to jail. The lucky ones have a permit to leave their squalor to work in Israel's cities, but their luck runs out when security closes all checkpoints, paralyzing an entire people. The indignities, dependence and anger are all too familiar.
