“We call on all producers and exporters of perishable food products to boycott Apartheid Israel as long as the regime continues its occupation of Palestinian lands and the perpetration of crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing and genocide. As South Africans we cannot be party to supporting Apartheid and the gross violation of the human rights of the Palestinian people.”
They deliberated on the penetration of Israeli apartheid on the African continent, reflected in the “shameful” accreditation of Israel as an observer to the African Union in July 2021. They said that Israel’s accreditation to the 55-member bloc “follows increasing military cooperation between Israel and some African regimes whose arms purchases finance Israel’s genocidal practices against Palestinians and fuel repression and wars in Africa.

“When it comes down to it, it’s whether or not you support war, whether or not you support genocide, whether or not you support apartheid, occupation,” Abulaban, a senior psychology major, told The Phoenix. “That’s what it comes down to. I don’t think anyone can disagree — no one wants war.”
In “straight news reporting” the reporter and her editors are not supposed to “take a side.” That’s why, for instance, in news stories about the genocide being carried out today by the governments of Myanmar, China, India and Israel, reporters and editors at responsible newspapers include statements from the governments of Myanmar, China, India, Israel and the United States that no such thing is happening — though it is.
Let’s not get into the question of whether reporting like this is actually “straight news.”
In a slower, more honest age, editors might have been allowed to give reporters a bit of time to examine the genocidal governments’ statements. But not today. Now we throw in the bullshit to show that we’re trying to “report both sides.”

WHEREAS CUNY, including CUNY Law, is directly complicit in the ongoing apartheid, genocide, and war crimes perpetrated by the state of Israel against the Palestinian people through its investments in and contracts with companies profiting off of Israeli war crimes;
…WHEREAS CUNY is further directly complicit in the ongoing apartheid, genocide, and war crimes perpetrated by the state of Israel against the Palestinian people through it’s academic collaborations with complicit Israeli academic institutions;
…WHEREAS, CUNY, including the Law School, is further directly complicit in the ongoing apartheid, genocide, and war crimes perpetrated by the state of Israel against the Palestinian people through collaboration with and yielding to pressure from organizations that repress Palestinian organizing and its complicity in the ongoing censorship, harassment, and intimidation of Palestine soliarity activists;
…WHEREAS, CUNY is further directly complicit in the ongoing apartheid, genocide, and war crimes perpetrated by the state of Israel against the Palestinian people through the participation of student organizations in “birthright” trips to Israel, which are designed to cover-up Israeli settler colonial and apartheid violence and dispossession in order to generate support for zionism amongst Jewish students in the US. The program essentially provides a free vacation to Jewish students while at the same time the Israeli government refuses to implement the internationally recognized right of return for Palestinian refugees;
As we write this letter, the Israeli settler-colonial state is firing “smart” missiles to terrorize and murder civilians in occupied Gaza, continuing its half century of genocide against Palestinians.
A July 27 demonstration called by Al-Awda and the NY4Palestine Coalition outside the Long Island home of Fauci (who is a U.S. citizen) and the office of New York State Attorney General Letitia James also demanded the revocation of 501(c)(3) status for groups which back settler-led genocide in Palestine.

“I think Americans largely get it,” the former Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu told us in 2014. “They know who the good guys are and who the bad guys are.” The ways in which we are presented information prompts us to “get it.” This is not to say there isn’t biased reporting that exists in the opposing favor, because there is, but it would be a lie to say it’s frequent or comparable. We get, as past presidents of the United States have reminded us, that Israel is a shining democracy, despite Palestinian and Arab second-class citizenship. We get that this alliance withstands violent apartheid and military regime. We get discriminatory laws, reminiscent of American Jim Crow, and mass Palestinian incarceration. We get ethnic cleansing, imperialist blockade and systemic economic strain. We get periodic bombing. Get massacres. Get slow-motion genocide. We get it without question and without concern, and most importantly, get it while being too stupid to understand such a complicated conflict.
