Thank you Asif for forwarding this nice lecture/article.
As I read/heard this seasoned researcher and articulate scholar, I kept thinking that AIPAC, Zionist think-tanks and Americans United for Israel must have thought through this inevitable outcome of their policies, and must have considered the tricky task ahead of them of defending the coming Israeli apartheid in American public opinion arena. Strategically for them, an America with weakened democratic values, or better, an America with some form of apartheid of her own, maybe, in the form of socially tolerated racial profiling against the Arab Americans or American Muslims in general, in the name of national security, would present an easier ground for this defense. At this point in time, the idea might sound farfetched, but the history shows us that nations do not always follow a moral climb but do degenerate as well. Many were the world superpowers of their times that now stand as stark reminders of this completed cycle. The lessons of the American civil rights era can be forgotten and the progress in the field of liberty can be eroded rather quickly by playing politics of fear. I personally think that this processes of ground preparation is already well underway here at home.
