Israel committing ’crime of apartheid’ against Palestinians: Human Rights Watch

HRW, in a new report, accused Israeli officials of committing the crimes of apartheid and persecution against Palestinians. It accuses the Israeli Govt. of ’methodologically privileging Jewish Israelis while repressing Palestinians.’ Responding to the claims, Israel’s foreign ministry called the report a ’propaganda pamphlet,’ while accusing HRW of a ’longstanding anti-Israeli agenda.’

Alternative title: “Report written by well-known Isreal hater and BDS supporter Omar Shakir says Israel is evil” I’m not trying to unilaterally defend Israel. I’m sure that the state and individual actors in Israel have done plenty of things wrong. All I’m saying is that the narrative of “Palestinians and their governments are saints, and Israel is completely evil” is pure BS, and this author in particular lacks credibility. I’d like to see Shakir’s report on Hamas; their near constant firing of rockets into civilian areas; using their own civilians as human shields by installing military equipment in and on top of hospitals, schools, and housing blocks; their policy of “martyrs pensions” for the families of those who die killing Jews; their children’s TV programming that’d make Hitler jeleous; their general treatment of homosexuals, dissidents and other undesirables (thrown off buildings, dragged behind motorbikes etc.)...

Really? So when 22% of the Israeli government is made up of Palestinian Arabs, this is apartheid? The population is 21% Palestinian Arab too. Just a quick question to all the anisemites on this thread, how many Jews live in Gaza and the West Bank? It’s a round number, should be easy for you you to figure out. The propaganda against Israeli Jews is nothing short of incitement to violence.

Funny how the liberals take their masks off and show their true Anti-Semitism, when any news portrays Israel negatively - and this is the same UN Human Rights Watch, with particularly sketchy member nations.

Is that the same Palestinians who have vowed to wipe Israel off the map and who glorify terrorism against civilians? Its a sad state of affairs there for all involved but its war- not apartheid. Many Palestinians have assimilated and live peacefully as Israeli citizens in Israel. That blows apartheid theory out of water. HRW should focus on true ethnic cleansing of the type going on in China and against Christians in parts of ME and Africa but their anti semitism wont allow that.

Well, I read the HRW report and it was what I thought it would be. Generalized; “Israel is unfair because ...Um ... power structures and racism” . You can’t accuse someone of being an apartheid state using two different sets of laws for two different people, and then not show the law that proves your point. We are not going to just take your word for it. Have you been asleep for the last five years? HRW has now become nothing more than socialist dribble disguised as a watchdog group. I will NOT be donating. Shame.

And yet ... Arabs in Israel enjoy more democratic freedoms in Israel than anywhere else in the Middle East. *scratching head*

Don't Palestinians have their own government? How can you be repressed by somebody else's government? This is really an insult to what the actual apartheid was

I mean, this assumes that these "Palestinians" are a thing, when it's nothing more than a particular group of Arabs who want the Jewish people eliminated and Israel eradicated as the homeland for the Jewish people. Normal Arabs disavow them. If you disagree with this post, please explain why you hate Jews.

Religion aside, Israel should probably face some recompense for their more evil actions over the years, like the USS Liberty incident. That said, it's like watching 2 sewer rats fight in the drainage system. Neither side is one I'd invite in for dinner, and the best outcome of this is where they both somehow deliver a fatal blow to the other. Not that I would care enough to watch that for more than 5 minutes.

I would say Israel treats its Arabs far better than most Arab countries treat their Jews.

"Human Rights Watch compared policies and practices towards nearly 7 million Palestinians in the occupied territories and within Israel with those concerning roughly the same number of Jewish Israelis living in the same areas." Can't wait to see how all you zionists defend this.

Such an age old conflict. Personally, I think Jewish people deserve to have atleast one land to call home. Can't say I'm too familiar with the history, mostly because it's different depending on who you ask and where the information is published. As with most conflicts, it's alot more complicated than "one side good and other side bad"

Oh wow, and we have only discovered this now, after decades of Israeli war crimes and terrorism against unarmed civilians? If these despicable acts of violence and cowardice were done by any other nation they would be universally condemned, but Israel gets a free pass thanks to the Uncle Sam. Disgusting!

Are they allowed to have their own nation or not? If not, justify that and then take away their country already. If they are, then stop whining when they enforce having their own nation.

Palestinians are Arab. Israel is full of Arabs. That's like claiming Germany is committing apartide against Turks because most of them live outside of Germany. Le dumb
