Israel and the crime of apartheid, what’s new?

On April 27, Human Rights Watch released the report “A Threshold Crossed: Israeli Authorities and the Crimes of Apartheid and Persecution.” In over 200 pages of rigorous research, the authors establish why, under the 1973 Convention against Apartheid and 1998 Rome Statute, the race-based order through which Israel governs the Jewish and Palestinian population between […]

Israel is not South Africa! is liberal Zionist response to HRW’s ‘apartheid’ charge

We were bound to talk endlessly about the April 27 Human Rights Watch report accusing Israel of the “crime of apartheid” — but the news justifies us being a broken record. The report is getting a lot of attention in ways that earlier apartheid findings have not, including in the New York Times, and it […]

In Wake of HRW Apartheid Report, Israeli Propagandists Launch Global PR Offensive

NEW YORK — A recently released bombshell Human Rights Watch (HRW) report has made waves around the world.

Quibbling Over Cruelties: Human Rights Watch, Israel and Apartheid

Criticism of Israel’s policies towards Palestinians has always induced a defensive rage from its defenders and advocates.   A Threshold Crossed, a report by Human Rights Watch, lit several fires of rage and disapproval.  Israel, according to the authors, is responsible for apartheid policies. The word, and the application of its meaning, is immemorially nasty.  This […]

Israel Is An Apartheid Regime According To Mainstream Human Rights Groups

Israel cast its fate–‘Apartheid’ –with Nation-State law and dismissal of Palestinian state, says Human Rights Watch

For many years anyone going into the occupied territories came out saying they’d seen apartheid– separate roads for Jews and Palestinians, crippling checkpoints for Palestinians, township areas to which Palestinians were confined and moved. “Apartheid on steroids,” the former chancellor of Brown University said in 2011. “Worse” than apartheid South Africa, a South African told […]

‘NYT’ coverage of the Human Rights Watch ‘Apartheid’ report is a game-changer

Having grown up in a secular liberal Jewish family in and around New York City, I’ve been reading the New York Times daily since I was a kid – take it from me, that’s a long time. Since I started speaking out about the Israeli oppression of Palestinians after Operation Protective Edge in 2014, I’ve come […]

‘Disgraceful’ ‘antisemitic’ ‘hatchet job’ — HRW’s ‘apartheid’ report draws blood from Israel lobby

The bombshell Human Rights Watch report that came out yesterday accusing Israel of committing crimes of apartheid and persecution toward Palestinians in many areas of its governance follows in a long tradition of such charges, including from a leading Israeli human rights groups in January, B’Tselem. Yet the HRW report is clearly different. It is […]

The ‘NY Times’ article on Human Rights Watch ‘apartheid’ report is largely an attack on the finding

Normally, the New York Times trusts Human Rights Watch and relies on the organization often. This April alone, for instance, the Times has already cited the group 12 times, using its expertise on rights violations in places as varied as Myanmar, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe. But the Times’s respectful view disappeared suddenly yesterday — after Human […]

End Medical Apartheid from the US to Palestine: a call to action

Like all people, Palestinians have the right to live in health and safety.

No, Israel is not an Apartheid

On February 9, 2021, the University of California Irvine (UCI) student government passed a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) resolution against Israel in a vote of 19-3.

Videos showing Palestinian experience of violent apartheid deserve an American audience

In January the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem declared that Palestinians face an “apartheid… regime of Jewish supremacy” in all the lands under Israel’s control, including the state of Israel, but the declaration has gotten very little attention in the U.S. The media, politicians and liberal Zionist organizations have all sidestepped it because it contradicts […]

Medical Apartheid: Structural racism, not race

When the COVID-19 pandemic first reached the United States a little over one year ago, grassroots organizers as well as many health providers, especially of color, immediately noted that even though the virus itself is an “equal opportunity” one it will impact different communities differently, exacerbating rather than minimizing the health disparities created by different […]

Thomas Friedman ignores ‘apartheid’ label, says Israel is ‘idealistic’ just like the U.S.

Thomas Friedman just wrote a column about Israel for The New York Times that says the Palestinian issue doesn’t matter. “[T]he Arab-Israel conflict for Israel… has largely disappeared,” he says. Israel is in the same boat as the U.S., building a diverse “idealistic” country in the face of rightwing trends. This approach by the leading […]

During a 2003 speech at Oxford Union, former Labour MP and out-spoken critic of Israel, George Galloway, was interrupted by Jewish protesters who waved the Israeli and accused him of “racism” against Jews — which prompted him to defend himself by revealing his activism in South Africa with the Jews who led the anti-Apartheid movement […]

Israel-Palestine: Two elections, under the burning sun of Apartheid

Many people think there will be an election round in Israel this spring (March 23rd).

An open letter to the NYT on landmark ‘apartheid’ report

Palestinians are wondering why, after seven weeks, the New York Times never published reports of a leading, well-respected Israeli human rights organization’s January publication, “A Regime of Jewish Supremacy from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea: This is Apartheid.”  As papers of record, the Times’ readers deserve to learn of B’tselem’s report, its argument, […]
