Today, I Am Ashamed to Be an Israeli

Yet, nothing has really changed since 2004. Instead, we now have a law that confirms the Arab population as second-class citizens. It therefore is a very clear form of apartheid.

I don’t think the Jewish people survived for 20 centuries, mostly through persecution and enduring endless cruelties, on order to now become the oppressors, inflicting cruelty on others. This new law does exactly that.

There is now no denying the apartheid state that is Israel

I STILL recall when I first used the word “apartheid” to describe the State of Israel’s policies towards Palestinians. It was more than a decade ago now during a reporting stint in Jerusalem and after an Israeli colleague had told me of the Hebrew word, hafrada, which refers to the concept of separation.

The Knesset Wants Apartheid

Without the Green Line, which symbolizes a future border between two states, there will be one state in which Israeli citizens live in inequality alongside Palestinian subjects deprived of citizenship and civil rights. Each group will be subordinate, according to its status, to a separate legal system and standards. This phenomenon has a name, and Israel will no longer be able to renounce reality and deny to the international community that it is an apartheid state, with all that this implies.

PICS: Thousands march in Cape Town in support of Palestine

Several thousand people marched from Keizersgracht Street to Parliament in Cape Town in support of Palestine, this after Israel opened fire on Palestinian protesters on the Israel-Gaza border on Monday, leaving at least 60 dead and over 2,200 wounded.
The protesters had gathered in their tens of thousands to denounce the move by the US to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
