It's worth noting that lebelling Israel a "fascist" state is so loaded with overtones and whatabouterry that the effort to do so distracts from the writer's ability to accuratly describe what Israel is.

However, it is undeniably an apartheid state, with all the attendant nastiness and aggressions involved. This a label that cannot be contested, especially in the light of recent laws passed by the Knesset.

And it allows us to make it a pariah state on that basis without any need for recourse to problematic descriptions or definitions
