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.

message of hope, Fallujah, the region and much of
the country is again under siege, not this time by
US mass murderers, but by the US proxy government’s
militias armed with US delivered weapons. In 2003, a
month into the invasion, Easter Day fell on the same
day as this year, 20th April, as Iraqis of all
denominations and none, died were incarcerated,
tortured, found with their heads drilled, or no
heads, thrown on garbage piles. Easter Day
