Mainline church labels Israel an Apartheid state, and more churches are sure to follow

So much bad news is hitting Israel’s leaders, so fast, these days, that they may have overlooked warnings by the American Jewish Committee (AJC), among others, that the United Church of Christ General Synod was considering becoming the first major U.S. denomination to label Israel an apartheid state. The Zionist shock and outrage didn’t have […]

As AIPAC sputters, ‘Americans for Peace Now’ publicizes ‘apartheid’ charge

There was big news inside the Israel lobby yesterday: the legendary Israel lobbying group AIPAC will not hold its annual conference next spring, citing lingering covid concerns– if you believe that, and I don’t. The air has clearly gone out of the rightwing Israel lobby. It is dependent on wealthy older Jews, and Republicans; and […]

New poll: 25% of U.S. Jews think Israel is apartheid state

A new poll of Jewish voters in the United States found that a quarter of them believe Israel is an apartheid state. The survey also indicates that support for Israel is declining among the group, specifically among younger Jews. The Jewish Electorate Institute asked 800 Jewish voters about Israel and U.S. policy. Some notable findings: […]

Israel’s foreign minister admits it’s an apartheid state

By felicitous circumstances (for details, see here), the Israeli opposition brought down the Citizenship Law last week. The law prevents Palestinian citizens of Israel from granting resident status to their spouses who are non-Israeli Palestinians. The rules are different for Jews. A Jew who marries a Jewish woman from the United States will thereby grant […]

The twisted, tragic reality of vaccine apartheid

As much of the globe was going into lockdown in March of last year, some on the progressive left believed that the emergency might create the conditions for the rise of a new internationalism. Surely the countries of the world, especially the richer and more powerful ones, would set aside their differences and make sensible choices in terms of sharing knowledge and resources to confront the novel coronavirus. Instead, from PPE shortages early on to vaccines today, a scramble ensued that left much of the global south behind. In terms of the […]

Poll: 40 per Cent of Brits Want Masks Forever & Vaccine Apartheid

A disturbing new poll finds that a whopping 40 per cent of British residents want mask mandates to remain in place forever, while half think that unvaccinated people should be segregated from the rest of society. No, this is NOT satire. “New polling by Ipsos MORI for the Economist suggests that a high percentage of […]

Yale student council condemns ‘ethnic cleansing’ and ‘apartheid’ in Palestine

The Yale College Council, the undergraduate student body at the school, has voted to endorse a statement condemning ethnic cleansing in Palestine. The statement was originally authored last month by the campus group Yalies 4 Palestine. “As Yale students, we condemn the injustice, genocide, and ethnic cleansingoccurring in Palestine,” reads the statement. “We emphasize – […]

Israel is torn between ‘temporary’ and permanent Apartheid

One of the first challenges to the new Israeli government is the passage of yet another extension to the “temporary order” from 2003, which bans Palestinian family unification. Human Rights Watch, in their April report on Israeli Apartheid, explains family reunification policy cogently: The 1952 Citizenship Law also authorizes granting citizenship based on naturalization. However, […]

British trade union highlights Israeli apartheid 

One of Britain’s leading trade unions, ASLEF, has published an article in its monthly journal highlighting Israeli apartheid. This is another sign of the growing awareness of systemic racism that Palestinians suffer under Israel’s brutal military occupation. Under the headline “No peace without justice” the piece was written by Hussein Ezzedine, the secretary of the […]

New Israeli government, same Israeli Apartheid

After 12 years, Israel finally inaugurated a new prime minister. While being hailed by many as the opportunity for a fresh start, Naftali Bennett is at best a maintainer of Netanyahu’s policies and at worst an ideologue whose positions are to the right of Netanyahu’s.  In 2013, as Middle East peace talks were set to […]

End of Netanyhu’s Tenure Leaves Israeli Apartheid Tyranny in Place

By Stephen Lendman Source On Sunday Netanyahu’s tenure ends, Israeli apartheid tyranny will remain in power under new management — like always before in Jewish state history. Ahead of a Friday evening deadline, a penultimate hurdle passed when all opposition parties submitted required signed coalition agreements to the Knesset secretary. At this time, a final […]

Two former Israeli ambassadors to South Africa join tsunami of ‘apartheid’ accusations against Israel

The news today is that two former Israeli ambassadors to South Africa have accused their country of practicing apartheid by creating bantustans for Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. “It’s apartheid, say Israeli ambassadors to South Africa,” Ilan Baruch and Alon Liel write at Groundup. This is yet another apartheid charge leveled by serious […]

What John Dugard tells us about apartheid in South Africa and Israel/Palestine

Palestinian solidarity advocates know that April 27 was a red-letter day for the cause: the ugly “apartheid” label seems finally to have stuck fast to Israel, thanks to the 213-page report released that day by Human Rights Watch. It came soon after the blow struck in January by B’Tselem, when it declared that Israel is […]

Apartheid vs. Apartheid in the time of ‘wokeness’

On Apartheid and the ’toning down of rhetoric’

Now, after Israel’s policy has been appraised as Apartheid by various human rights organizations including Human Rights Watch, it has suddenly become antisemitic to say so. What a coincidence. Before that, the IHRA ‘definition’ of antisemitism that many governments and Jewish organizations promoted suggested that even appraising Israel as a “racist endeavor” could constitute antisemitism. […]

On the 28th of May, university students across the country are gathering in unity with the Palestinian people to demand immediate divestment from companies complicit in Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism as a part of Apartheid Off Campus’s national day of action.  The recent forced expulsions in Sheik Jarrah, the brutal attacks on Al-Aqsa mosque and […]

Now it’s ‘antisemitic’ to say that Israel practices ‘apartheid’

As you are surely aware, advocates for Israel are using an apparent surge in antisemitic attacks to try to delegitimize pro-Palestine advocacy. Part of that effort is a move to characterize the charge that Israel is practicing apartheid as antisemitic. Four pro-Israel congresspeople sent a letter to President Biden yesterday taking aim at fellow Democrats […]

Digital Apartheid: Palestinians Being Silenced On Social Media

Social media companies, from Zoom to Facebook and Twitter, are reinforcing Israel’s erasure of Palestinians. “Big Tech’s censors material related to the Palestinian struggle on Israel’s demand.” In 1984, Palestinian American intellectual and Columbia University Professor Edward Said famously argued that Palestinians are denied “permission to narrate”. More than 30 years later, in 2020, Maha […]

Journalists and liberal Zionists are determined to push ‘apartheid’ charge down the memory hole

Today’s New York Times has a long and compelling feature article about the Palestinian “misery at the heart of the conflict,” including house demolitions and evictions in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem. The most remarkable thing about the article, though, is what it leaves out, the systematic legal discrimination that fosters these conditions. […]

Taboo on saying ‘Apartheid’ is suddenly over in U.S. mainstream — thanks to AOC, Bush, Oliver, Reid, Velshi

When Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez labeled Israel an apartheid country over the weekend, writing, “Apartheid states are not democracies,” she made international headlines. And Missouri Rep. Cori Bush promptly echoed her colleague from New York. Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib made the apartheid charge last week.
