The Zionist state itself is an impediment to peace. (Photo: Activestills.org)
By Firoz Osman
H.F.Verwoed, former SA Prime Minister, observed in 1961 that the Jews took Israel from the Arabs after the Arabs had lived there for a thousand years. In that I agree with them. Israel, like South Africa is an apartheid state.
From its origins in the 19th century, Zionism, the official ideology of the state of Israel, centred on the idea of creating a specifically Jewish state in which Jews would be protected and privileged over non-Jews.
In 1991 the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) rescinded, after intense USA and Western pressure, the resolution that condemned Zionism as a form of racism and racial discrimination. This was followed three years later by the dismantling of Apartheid SA leading up to a democratic, non-racial and unitary South Africa.
The Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) which begins in SA from the 10-17 March, have staged events in hundreds of cities and college campuses across the world, spotlighting on what is believed to be the last outpost of Apartheid in the world.
Zionism, as preached and practiced by Israel since 1948, is indisputably, undeniably, racist.
If you are a Jew, you have exclusive use of land, privileged access to private and public employment, special educational loans, home mortgages, preferences for admission to universities, and many other things. Israelis must carry a card which identifies them as either a Jew, a Muslim, or a Christian.
Other special privileges are reserved for those who have served in the Israeli military. And military service is compulsory for all Jews (male and female), except for the ultra-Orthodox who get the same privileges as other Jews, but excludes Palestinians, who do not.

Inhabited since at least the 15th century B.C., Gaza has been dominated by many different peoples and empires throughout its history; it was incorporated into the Ottoman Empire in the early 16th century. Gaza fell to British forces during World War I, becoming a part of the British Mandate of Palestine. Following the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Egypt administered the newly formed Gaza Strip; it was captured by Israel in the Six-Day War with Egypt in 1967. Under a series of agreements signed between 1994 and 1999, Israel transferred to the Palestinian Authority (PA) security and civilian responsibility for many Palestinian-populated areas of the Gaza Strip as well as the West Bank. Negotiations to determine the permanent status of the West Bank and Gaza Strip stalled after the outbreak of an intifada in mid- 2000. In early 2003, the “Quartet” of the US, EU, UN, and Russia, presented a roadmap to a final peace settlement by 2005, calling for two states – Israel and a democratic Palestine. Following Palestinian leader Yasir ARAFAT’s death in late 2004 and the subsequent election of Mahmud ABBAS (head of the Fatah political party) as the PA president, Israel and the PA agreed to move the peace process forward. Israel in late 2005 unilaterally withdrew all of its settlers and soldiers and dismantled its military facilities in the Gaza Strip, but continues to control maritime, airspace, and other access. In early 2006, the Islamic Resistance Movement, HAMAS, won the Palestinian Legislative Council election and took control of the PA government. Attempts to form a unity government failed, and violent clashes between Fatah and HAMAS supporters ensued, culminating in HAMAS’s violent seizure of all military and governmental institutions in the Gaza Strip. Fatah and HAMAS in early 2011 agreed to reunify the Gaza Strip and West Bank, but the factions have struggled to implement details on governance and security. Brief periods of increased violence between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip in 2007-08 and again in 2012, both led to Egyptian-brokered truces. The status quo remains with HAMAS in control of the Gaza Strip and the PA governing the West Bank.

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu said Sunday that Israel’s treatment of Palestinians reminds him of South African apartheid, and reiterated his support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.
“I have witnessed the systemic humiliation of Palestinian men, women and children by members of the Israeli security forces,” he said in a statement. “Their humiliation is familiar to all black South Africans who were corralled and harassed and insulted and assaulted by the security forces of the apartheid government.”
The former Anglican archbishop of Cape Town made the statement as the 10th annual Israel Apartheid Week opened Sunday in South Africa. The initiative, part of the international boycott, divestment and sanctions movements campaign against Israel, is being marked in 87 cities this year. Tutu visited Israel in 1989.
International pressure similar to the BDS movement led to the end of apartheid in South Africa, the statement said.
“In South Africa, we could not have achieved our democracy without the help of people around the world, who through the use of non-violent means, such as boycotts and divestment, encouraged their governments and other corporate actors to reverse decades-long support for the apartheid regime.
The same issues of inequality and injustice today motivate the divestment movement trying to end Israel’s decades long occupation of Palestinian territory and the unfair and prejudicial treatment of the Palestinian people by the Israeli government ruling over them.”
Tutu, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for standing up against white-minority rule in South Africa, added that people who don’t act against injustice are complicit in it.
”Those who turn a blind eye to injustice actually perpetuate injustice. If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor,” he said. “It doesn’t matter where we worship or live. We are members of one family, the human family, God’s family.”
Last May, the retired archbishop joined calls for UEFA to move the Under-21 European soccer championship from Israel because of the state’s treatment of Palestinian sport.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has compared Israel to South Africa during apartheid. Tutu said in a statement that the treatment of the Palestinian people at the hands of the Israeli forces was the same as that of black people by the apartheid regime.

The racially segregated roads and housing in Israel was a reminder of the conditions experienced in South Africa during apartheid, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu said on Sunday.
“I have witnessed the systemic humiliation of Palestinian men, women and children by members of the Israeli security forces,” he said in a statement.”Their humiliation is familiar to all black South Africans who were corralled and harassed and insulted and assaulted by the security forces of the apartheid government.”

South Africas Archbishop Emeritus, Desmund Tutu has once again taken aim at Israel, saying its racially-segregated roads and housing were a reminder of the conditions experienced in Apartheid South Africa.
I have witnessed the systemic humiliation of Palestinian men, women and children by members of the Israeli security forces, he said in a statement.
Their humiliation is familiar to all black South Africans who were corralled and harassed and insulted and assaulted by the security forces of the apartheid government.

It doesnt matter where we worship or live. We are members of one family, the human family, Gods family, the Archbishop said.

Zingiswa Losi, 2nd Deputy President of COSATU supports Israeli Apartheid Week South Africa
Sunday, March 09, 2014
JOHANNESBURG – The 10thannualIsraeli Apartheid Week (IAW) opened in South African on Sunday to promote awareness about the sufferings of the Palestinian people.
“At our 53thconference we retaliated our resolution to continue supporting the people of Palestine. International solidarity plays a great role,” Johannesburg Mayor Parks Tau told the launch ceremony at the workers museum.
Tau, the regional chairperson for the ruling African National Congress (ANC) in Johannesburg, believes the Israeli Apartheid Week will help create awareness about the sufferings of the Palestinian people.
Last week, the ANC, which championed the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa, officially endorsed the upcoming IsraeliApartheidWeek.
It said participating in this year’sApartheidWeek was part of its commitment to the international anti-apartheidmovement.
More than 75 South African organizations have backed the pro-Palestinian campaign, which will run until March 16.
IAW is an international series of events organized annually to raise awareness of Israel’s aggressions against the Palestinian people.
Launched 10 years ago by Palestinian activists in Canada, the IAW activities are now held in 150 cities around the world, including more than 25 cities and towns in South Africa.
