Amnesty International calls Israel an apartheid state

This is urgent and important. Please make a lot of publicity about this:


Amnesty International Declares Israel an Apartheid State: “Israel’s apartheid against Palestinians: Cruel system of domination and crime against humanity”  https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents/mde15/5141/2022/en/

Palestinian human rights groups have used the term apartheid for decades.
After an extensive investigation, Amnesty International released a report this morning [Feb 1, 2922] officially declaring that Israel is committing apartheid against Palestinians earlier this morning. The report [at https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents/mde15/5141/2022/en/%5D “Israel’s
Apartheid against Palestinians: Cruel System of Domination and Crime
against Humanity” concludes that the consistent demolitions of Palestinian
properties, unlawful killings, forcible transfer, movement restrictions,
and the denial of nationality and citizenship to Palestinians make up a
system of apartheid. AI writes: “Amnesty International has analysed Israel’s intent to create and maintain a system of oppression and domination over Palestinians and examined its key components: territorial fragmentation; segregation and control; dispossession of land and property; and denial of economic and social rights. It has concluded that this system amounts to apartheid. Israel must dismantle this cruel system and the
international community must pressure it to do so. All those with jurisdiction over the crimes committed to maintain the system should investigate them.”

Help Amnesty International and allied human rights organizations hold Israel accountable for its crimes against humanity by urging your politicians to end complicity in Israel’s crimes. Demand an immediate arms embargo on the apartheid state. In the USA contact congress e.g.

Amnesty International’s report is not the first to conclude that Israel is an apartheid state.  Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem alxso called out Israeli apartheid
https://www.btselem.org/publications/fulltext/202101_this_is_apartheid
as did Human Rights Watch,
https://www.hrw.org/report/2021/04/27/threshold-crossed/israeli-authorities-and-crimes-apartheid-and-persecution

Israel must be held accountable for its crime of apartheid against Palestinians.
