Apartheid is a high crime against humanity, ongoing in Israel since its 1948 establishment, hardening over time, worst of all under Netanyahu’s coalition regime.
The authors state their “study was motivated by the desire to promote compliance with international human rights law, uphold and strengthen international criminal law, and ensure that the collective responsibilities of the United Nations and its Member States with regard to crimes against humanity are fulfilled.”
“More concretely, it aims to see the core commitments of the international community to upholding international law applied to the case of the Palestinian people, in defence of its rights under international law, including the right of self-determination.”
They minced no words, calling Israel a racist apartheid regime, presenting clear evidence proving their accusation “beyond a reasonable doubt” – based on the International Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid (the Apartheid Convention), saying:
“The term (applies to) policies and practices of racial segregation and discrimination as practiced in southern Africa…inhuman acts committed for the purpose of establishing and maintaining domination by one racial group of persons over any other racial group of persons and systematically oppressing them.”
