/ The ghost of apartheid has come back to haunt Israel and give hope to Palestinians

The parallel between the treatment of Palestinians by Israel and the apartheid regime in South Africa: a systematic campaign of oppression, dispossession, and violence against marginalized groups, language used to justify these systems and the ways in which they have been perpetuated over time. An international action is needed to address these issues and prevent further human rights abuses.

[…] Even as a teenage Zionist of the left in South Africa – before the illusions of that identity collapsed under the weight of their absurdity and I found my way into the ANC – my anti-apartheid inclinations made me especially uncomfortable that Israel was the apartheid regime’s closest ally. Many of us were appalled in 1976 when Israel hosted South African prime minister John Vorster, an avowed Nazi imprisoned during the second world war for his work in a paramilitary sabotage organisation linked to Hitler’s abwehr, his military-intelligence service. Even more so, later, when it turned out that Israel was negotiating arms deals with South Africa, which violated the UN arms embargo, and even cooperated on nuclear-weapons development.

Target these companies on the boycott of Israeli Apartheid.

Of course more are connected to the genocidal regime, but these are the ones that BDS Movement are calling to focus on for maximum effect.

@express @palestine For one, The IDF have a long history of lying and manufacturing evidence so I in my humble opinion I don't trust anything coming from them.

Another thing, the IDF also have a long history of using Palestinians as human shields.

Hypocritical, that you're using the terrorist group IDF as a source.

@justinling @BernetaWrites

"been killed"
The Guardian was quoting UN Secretary-General Guterres.

The number of journalists and UN aid workers killed in Gaza likely has a strong correlation with the number of journalists and UN aid workers Israel is killing.

[Edit: taking my own advice and instantly blocking any troll that replies. It's Free Palestine, Stop Genocide - or get the fuck out of my notifications]

If anyone tries to silence you by claiming that the freedom slogan "from the river to the sea" refers to genocide or wishing harm on anyone - don't take the bait, and keep focused on supporting Palestinians.

Because, despite evidence and logical arguments clearly debunking this myth, these people have chosen to silence a rapidly growing movement calling for peace and freedom. For the peopleS and land to be liberated from the state of Israel's violence and control. This slogan is about life, not death.

By creating a fantasy genocide, they're trying to sow confusion, to stop people from advocating for the end of an actual genocide. Chose life, not death.

Ignore these footsoldiers of a genocide regime. Do not let them distract you. Do not take the bait. Block/walk away.

From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.

@express @KarenWyld @palestine The Israels are going all in on making the genocide successful now though aren't they? The political leaders are open about it.

Here's one of the properties you're referring to:
"Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;"

Thousands of people protesting in Germany yesterday for Palestine even though it is illegal to do so. The media deliberately does not cover these protests.

Oh there's intent. Netanyahu is even calling the Gazans "Amalek". Couldn't be clearer.

Israel is a terrorist state founded by terrorist militias conducting ethnic cleansing. Their terrorist leader, Menachem Begin, became PM. They haven't stopped.

@Blueteamsherpa @yassin @palestine Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I read the article. There's nothing antisemitic in it but there's this quote:

@Blueteamsherpa @palestine @yassin You didn't read the article but you called the author antisemitic?

"...my experience with most Brits is they are anti-Semitic, anti-Israel ... I didn’t figure it extended to British Jews."

@Blueteamsherpa @palestine @yassin I re-read it. Nothing antisemitic there either.
