Human Rights Watch release ground-breaking report on Israeli Apartheid
Tuesday 27 April: Today Human Rights Watch released a report titled: A Threshold Crossed: Israeli Authorities and the Crimes of Apartheid and Persecution.
In the report, Human Rights Watch state that:
“… Israeli authorities methodically privilege Jewish Israelis and discriminate against Palestinians. Laws, policies, and statements by leading Israeli officials make plain that the objective of maintaining Jewish Israeli control over demographics, political power, and land has long guided government policy. In pursuit of this goal, authorities have dispossessed, confined, forcibly separated, and subjugated Palestinians by virtue of their identity to varying degrees of intensity. In certain areas, as described in this report, these deprivations are so severe that they amount to the crimes against humanity of apartheid and persecution.”
Sabeel-Kairos welcomes this important report, and it’s significance in the international campaign for justice and equality for all Palestinians. We stand with Human Rights Watch with courage to fight apartheid, and encourage you to read and share the report widely.
