Instead, we will go once more to the involved parties:


    Is the Apache license compatible with the GPL (GNU Public License)?

    From the Free Software Foundation website:

    Apache License, Version 2.0
        This is a free software license, compatible with version 3 of
        the GPL. Please note that this license is not compatible with
        GPL version 2, because it has some requirements that are not
        in the older version. These include certain patent termination
        and indemnification provisions.

Apache and the FSF both agree that the licenses are compatible,
and you (apparently) do not. You are, as usual, wrong.
