John Kerry and Israeli apartheid

John Kerry and Israeli apartheid

Anti-Palestinian advocates are up in arms over US Secretary of State John Kerry’s warning that Israel could become an “apartheid state” in the absence of a “two-state solution.”


The Anti-Defamation League declared itself “startled and disappointed
that Kerry would use the “offensive term ‘apartheid’ to warn what might
become of Israel should an agreement not be reached with the
Palestinians.” The neoconservative Emergency Committee for Israel has
meanwhile demanded that Kerry be sacked.


Caught on tape

Kerry made his “apartheid state” comment in a closed meeting of
“influential world leaders” on Friday and lashed out at Israeli and
Palestinian leaders, blaming both for the failure of negotiations.
Kerry’s comments, caught on tape and reported by The Daily Beast, included:


A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real
alternative. Because a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid
state with second-class citizens – or it ends up being a state that
destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state … . Once you put
that frame in your mind, that reality, which is the bottom line, you
understand how imperative it is to get to the two-state solution, which
both [Israeli and Palestinian] leaders, even yesterday, said they remain
deeply committed to.

Some thirteen years after the event, the shadow of
the

9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center
in Manhattan and the Pentagon still darkens our
world. The legacy of that terrible day has impacted
not only our foreign policy, bequeathing to a new
generation an apparently

endless "war on terrorism," it also has led
directly to what is arguably the most

massive assault on our civil liberties since the
Alien and Sedition Acts. Getting all the information
about what happened that day – and why it happened –
is key to understanding the cou…
