The Nobel peace laureate said he saw "the humiliation of the Palestinians at checkpoints and roadblocks, suffering like us when young white police officers prevented us from moving about."
Referring to Americans, he added,
"People are scared in this country to say wrong is wrong because the
Jewish lobby is powerful--very powerful. Well, so what? The apartheid government
was very powerful, but today it no longer exists." [IBID]
On July 26, 1973, a UN draft resolution affirmed the rights of the Palestinians and established provisions for Israeli withdrawal from the occupied territories as embodied in previous General Assembly resolutions, but the American Government killed this international effort to end Israel's occupation of Palestinian lands. 
It was 'civilized' men who carved up the Holy Land vis-à-vis the UN Partition Plan in 1947, and over 700,000 indigenous Palestinians became refugees- who are still denied their inalienable human right to return home-because they are the wrong religion. And this is at the root of much of the misery in the Middle East and fuels the 'demon' of Anti-Semitism.
Because of ignorance, misplaced guilt for the Jewish Holocaust and a fear of being called an Anti-Semite; Israel has been allowed to defy international law and deny equal human rights to the indigenous people.
