When the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem pronounced on January 12 that Israel was an “apartheid” state, maintaining a “regime of Jewish supremacy from the river to the sea,” the report shocked many in the world.

“A Regime of Jewish Supremacy from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea: This is Apartheid,” was the title of a January 12 report by the Israeli rights group B’Tselem.

B’Tselem casts Israel as a racist endeavor, correcting the ethical grammar of Israel/Palestine

B’Tselem’s new report describing all of Israel and the Palestinian Occupied Territories as a single ‘apartheid’ regime will have widespread and long-term implications.

The ‘NYT’ and ‘Washington Post’ cover up B’Tselem verdict, that Israel is an ‘apartheid regime’

Liberal Zionists open the New York Times these days with shivers of anxiety.

During the past two decades, many respected individuals and organizations designated the regime Israel has established in the occupied Palestinian territory—the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and Gaza—as a form of apartheid.  A small subset of these individuals and organizations designated the regime Israel presided over in the whole of “historic Palestine”—i.e., from the Jordan […]

B’Tselem calls on Israeli soldiers to defy shooting orders, lest they commit war crimes

B’Tselem, the respected Israeli human rights NGO, began a media campaign today urging Israel Defense Forces soldiers posted on the Gaza border to disobey “patently illegal” shoot-to-kill orders against unarmed protesters.
