The International Criminal Court is, by any objective measurement, racist. So why do liberals love it?

The International Criminal Court is, by any objective measurement, racist. So why do liberals love it?
March 15, 2012 "The Telegraph" -- Imagine if there were a criminal court in Britain which only ever tried black people, which ignored crimes committed by whites and Asians and only took an interest in crimes committed by blacks. We would consider that racist, right? And yet there is an International Criminal Court which only ever tries black people, African black people to be precise, and it is treated as perfectly normal.

Israeli Apartheid Week connects Gaza with South Africans, Palestinians in exile

Israeli Apartheid Week connects Gaza with South Africans, Palestinians in exile
Everything in Gaza testifies to its deep-rooted culture of resistance against a ruthless system that continues to besiege, murder, and expel the Palestinian people who, instead of lamenting their endless losses, refuse but to find life in its fullest sense.

As Israel’s F-16 aircrafts dropped its bombs on whoever it deemed a “terrorist,” including a twelve-year-old boy, Palestinians still went to work, schools, universities, and even wedding parades were still to be seen in the streets.

Gaza’s Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) also went ahead, and on its first day, the first-ever musical collaboration between Palestine and post-Apartheid South Africa was launched. “The New Black” is the name of the eight-minute video clip, a name that accurately depicts the oppressive reality of the Palestinian people.

Mohammed Omar, a Palestinian oud player based in Gaza, and the South African band The Mavrix coordinated their …
