It may be hard to believe, but against the background of daily killings of Palestinians and statements of blanket support for Israel by Imperial Leader Biden, there is some good news. Many Israelis are courageously denouncing Israeli apartheid and support for Palestinians has been growing fast around the world and in some unusual places.
A major step was taken by the Israeli group B’Tselem in January. The group had been set up to monitor human rights abuses in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. It would investigate and send complaints to the Israeli military and to the press. A couple of years ago it gave up writing to the military. It was useless. This January it issued a report that for the first time said that Israel (from the river to the sea) was one apartheid system. A couple of months later a strong statement was signed by over 1,000 Israeli Jews. It recognizes Israel’s apartheid status and says, “We refuse to accept the Jewish-supremacist regime and call upon the international community to immediately intervene in defense of the Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank, Jerusalem, the Galilee, the Negev, al-Lydd, Yafa, Ramleh, Haifa and throughout historic Palestine.”
