Alice Walkerhypocrisy

So Alice Walker won't allow her book The Color Purple to be translated into Hebrew and published in Israel because of that country's "apartheid" treatment of Palestinians, but she's OK to be published in a country that, in the last decade alone, has killed tens of thousands of civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya, and elsewhere; a country responsible for Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay, "extraordinary renditons," "black sites" and drone strikes ?

Well, it's her book, so I guess she gets to pick and choose.

Over and out.
