Hebrew Lesson from the Baltimore Sun

From an editorial by someone named Fred Schlomka:
The Hebrew term hafrada, which means "separation" or "apartheid," has entered the mainstream lexicon in Israel and determined much of the government's policies since the Oslo process began in 1993.
Besides the fact that "apartheid" literally means separation and that letists love to link Israel to South Africa, what is "Schlomka" implying? That Israelis consciously use the term "hafrada" with South African apartheid in mind? I could say that bomb belts are supposed to accomplish the separation or "apartheid" of limbs from bodies.
