Denmark: MP compares Israel to South African Apartheid regime

Jakob Engel-Schmidt, MP for the Danish Liberal Party, wrote an op-ed in Danish newspaper Berlingske, in which he compared Israel's policies in the West Bank and East Jerusalem to South Africa's Apartheid regime.  Engel-Schmidt also said that Israel's security concerns cannot excuse the lack of fundamental rights for Palestinians.

The article led to much criticism among Danish politicians.  Today he says he stands by the essence of his article, though he maybe should have reworded it so as to focus on the issue.
