The South Africa connection--rereading a great article

I wish I had been a reader of the Guardian when this two-part article on the parallels between South Africa and Israel by veteran journalist Chris McGreal came out in 2006. Sadly, I was still a US-centric consumer of media and I missed it. Lucky to have come upon this article and share it with our readers, if you have the time to read one of the great pieces on this conflict by a journalist who was stationed in both Johannesburg and Jerusalem, it is every bit worth the read.

*I read the second-part first, which is fine too.
