‘Israel is an apartheid state,’ but keep the U.S. aid flowing — Rothkopf

The use of the word apartheid to describe Israel’s treatment of Palestinians just keeps growing. David Rothkopf, the former editor of Foreign Policy, baldly states that Israel is an apartheid state in a piece published by Haaretz last weekend. The “demise” of the two state solution has made it untenable not to talk about Israeli […]

ADL’s latest effort to use antisemitism in defense of apartheid

The Anti-Defamation League has long made it a priority to conflate criticism of Israel with antisemitism, but in recent years, it has become almost an obsession. The group’s latest report subverts the fight against antisemitism towards support for Israeli crimes. Source

Israeli Apartheid Defenders in Canada Attack Green Leader May

December 10, 2022 By Yves Engler The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs’ recent attack against Elizabeth May is farcical.

How it feels to visit an apartheid country

The racial profiling is rampant before your eyes. I sauntered through Damascus Gate at midnight. The young Palestinian just behind me got stopped by soldiers demanding his i.d. card. Abuse and invective are normal here. Just look at the picture the racist Israeli politician Itamar Ben-Gvir posted of the Palestinian politician Ahmad Tibi wheeling a […]

Chasing a Mirage: How Israel Arab Parties Validate Israeli Apartheid

November 2, 2022 By Ramzy Baroud Regardless of the outcome of the latest Israeli elections, Arab parties will not reap meaningful political benefits, even if they collectively achieve their highest representation ever.

Brad Sherman’s mindboggling argument against apartheid label for Israel

Last week the House Foreign Affairs Committee unanimously passed a bill to restrict curriculums so that Palestinian children won’t be taught to “demonize” Israel.

No room for love in Apartheid Israel 

A new rule that forces visitors who fall in love with Palestinians to inform Israeli authorities shows that the right to intimacy serves as both a realm of domination as well as a form of resistance under Israeli settler-colonialism.

‘NYT’ and UN Security Council platform apartheid charge against Israel

It goes without saying that Jewish voices have greater weight on the Israel question in the U.S. discourse, and that Zionist voices even greater weight.

“Neutrality is not a faithful response”: churches call Israeli apartheid by its name

CHOMSKY ON ISRAELI APARTHEID, CELEBRITY ACTIVISTS, BDS AND THE ONE-STATE SOLUTION

Chomsky believes that calling Israeli policies towards Palestinians “apartheid” is actually a “gift to Israel”, at least, if by apartheid one refers to the South-African style apartheid.

Israeli Apartheid: The power of the frame, the shame of the name

Even a scholar who opposes the label says, “Israel does not have a case against apartheid.” That is the power of the apartheid framing.

Tom Friedman normalizes apartheid in the ‘New York Times’

NYT columnist Tom Friedman painted the past year in Israel—the first Netanyahu-free year since 2008—as an icon of democracy, where Israeli Jews and Palestinian citizens of Israel danced together under the blue and white flag, in harmony and happiness. That is a contemptible piece of fiction which erases apartheid, blames Palestinians for their own ongoing […]
