Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said today that the world should take a clear stand and what is necessary to stop Israel’s crimes of apartheid against the Palestinian people… “The racist practices of Ben Gvir and all members of the Israeli Government and its affiliated militias that espouse the doctrine of killing, burning, erasure and genocide are enough for the world to stop dealing with this Government, condemn its practices, enforce international laws calling for sanctions, and protect the Palestinian people from those criminal practices,” said the Prime Minister.

Israeli minister publicly declares safety of Jews more important than that of Arabs on The Cradle

PLEASE TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW AND SEND YOUR LETTER TO THE UN OFFICE OF THE SPECIAL ADVISER ON THE PREVENTION OF GENOCIDE AND THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT PROSECUTOR.

Israel’s National Security Minister, Itamar Ben Gvir, on 23 August declared that upholding Jewish families’ safety and freedom of movement is “more important” than doing the same for the country’s Arab population.

“My right, and my wife’s and my children’s right, to get around on the roads [of the occupied West Bank] is more important than the right to movement for Arabs,” the Jewish supremacist minister said during a televised interview on Channel 12. “Sorry Mohammad,” he said to journalist Mohammad Magadli, who was arguing with him, “but that’s the reality. That’s the truth. My right to life comes before their right to movement.”

“For the first time, an Israeli minister admits on air that Israel enforces an apartheid regime based on Jewish supremacy,” Arab lawmaker Ahmad Tibi of the Hadash-Taal party said on social media following Ben Gvir’s tirade.

The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court defines apartheid — which is a direct symptom of military occupation — as a crime against humanity, characterized by the commission of “inhumane acts,” such as unlawful killing, torture, and forcible transfer, which are committed to maintaining an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over another.

Major human rights groups and UN officials have accused Tel Aviv of perpetuating such a system against Palestinians on top of the military occupation of their land and a decades-long campaign of genocide.

Letter | Richard McGowan: Pocan’s double-speak on Israel on The Capital Times

PLEASE TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW AND SEND YOUR LETTER TO THE UN OFFICE OF THE SPECIAL ADVISER ON THE PREVENTION OF GENOCIDE AND THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT PROSECUTOR.

On July 18, U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan voted yes on a resolution that asserts that Israel “is not a racist or apartheid state… This is beyond an insult to the Palestinian victims that he has pretended to champion, after previously having taken trips to the occupied territories where he got his photo-op and proceeded to vote for more billions to fund Israel’s escalating violence toward Palestinians who are staring down genocide, from Jenin to Gaza.

“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.”

Under Apartheid – Hello from Gaza by Aya Al-Ghazzawi

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Many Palestinian, Israeli, and international human rights organisations have described Israel’s policies against Palestinians as apartheid, the latest of which was Amnesty International. Their new report documents the crimes perpetrated by Israel, along with strong and highly valued legal analysis. But many of us here would say that what we suffer in Gaza goes beyond being just a Bantustan. Many would say we live in something that feels like a slow genocide. We have been enduring crimes against humanity for decades. I worry our suffering is being normalised. We need global solidarity and mass mobilisation more than ever. We need more people who believe in human rights for all to speak out. We need to build an international anti-apartheid movement all over again.

South African MP, Nelson Mandela’s grandson, denounces Israel’s crimes, genocide, and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, at the Pan African anti-apartheid Conference in Senegal by Nkosi Mandla Mandela

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

We believe that the struggle for Palestine has reached such a critical point, with six million Palestinians in exile struggling for their right of return, thousands of political prisoners languishing in jails, many without trial or access to justice. The unabated expansion of illegal apartheid settlements on Palestinian lands, in defiance of international law, and the daily demolitions of homes in Sheikh Jarrah, Silwan, the south Hebron hills, and many parts of occupied West Bank. Apartheid Israel continues to pursue its evil program of war crimes, genocide, and ethnic cleansing, against humanity.

Palestinian resistance is forcing liberals to see Israel’s apartheid from Ali Abunimah

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

It’s important that Amnesty has come out and recognised apartheid, but in another article we published at the Electronic Intifada today, by my colleague Maureen Murphy, she points out that although the Amnesty report is really useful, and is really a watershed in terms of international advocacy. And Amnesty goes much further than Human Rights Watch, and B’Tselem, and others in terms of its recommendations. Even then, this report falls short by failing to recognise the settler-colonial context of the Zionist project in Palestine. And settler colonialism is ultimately genocidal. Because, as Maureen writes, the Zionist settlers did not come from Europe with the intent to dominate and persecute Palestinians, and establish an apartheid regime. They came with the intent to take their land and remove them.

On Haaretz: Can Settler Colonialism Be Liberal and Apartheid Be Progressive? by Ilan Pappe

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Even the worst atrocity can be tolerated and explained, if it is de-contextualized – namely is not related to an ideology – and, thus, the discreet dots of Israeli criminality are not connected together to provide the full and truthful picture of the real intent of the settler-colonial project of Zionism that will not end until it is stopped – which is to eliminate the Palestinians and Palestine. I am sure we all understand that elimination can take more than one form: it could be genocide, it could be incremental ethnic cleansing, sieges, closures, blockades and starvation, as well the erasure of heritage, history and culture. It can take place in dramatic operations or on a daily basis and can be directed towards the individual or the society, as a whole.
