The former Democratic Major Leader George Mitchell, sat down with me to talk about why he rejects the “Apartheid” label for the Israel-Palestinian conflict.
Mitchell, who helped broker peace accords in Northern Ireland and worked as part of a special envoy to the Middle East during the Obama Administration, recently published a new book “A Path To Peace: A Brief History of Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations and a Way Forward in the Middle East.” In the book, he outlines why the comparison between pre-1990s South Africa and Israel today is flawed on many levels.
