A pro-Palestine activist holds a sign during a protest at Durban’s North Beach ahead of the Israeli Apartheid Week from March 11 to 17. (Rajesh Jantilal, AFP)
At Durban’s North Beach last week, Avrille Coen, a Democratic Alliance councillor for the city’s ward 27, denounced a painting by pro-Palestine activist and hip-hop artist Iain “Ewok” Robinson on the wall of a skaters’ park that included the words “Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) 2013″.
Medical student Khadeeja Manjra, who was part of a flash mob for Gaza thatwas promoting the Isreali Apartheid Week and Palestine’s cause in the area, said Coen was called to the park by the Durban Metropolitan Police after a member of the public objected to the activities.
“She [Coen] said that Israel was not classified as an apartheid state and she wanted the painting removed. She was adamant that the term ‘Israeli apartheid’ is hate speech,” Manjra said.
The Daily News also quoted Coen as saying that the painting must be removed. “This is hate speech, calling a democratic country like Israel, which has people of Palestinian descent in Parliament, an apartheid state,” she toldHlengiwe Kweyama, a reporter from the newspaper.
But John Dugard, who was the United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in the Occupied Palestine Territory (OPT), said he had himself used the term “apartheid” to describe the system in the region.
“I am greatly surprised that the term ‘Israel apartheid’ should be seen to be hate speech. It is a term used extensively in Israel itself to describe the dual legal system that exists in the West Bank and East Jerusalem for Jewish settlers and Palestinians,” he said.
“The subjection of Palestinians to a separate and unequal judicial/legal system, separate roads, separate schools, separate hospitals and, more recently, separate buses has inevitably given rise to accusations that Israel applies a form of apartheid in the OPT,” he added.
“In 2012 a study conducted by the South African Human Sciences Research Council found conclusively that Israel practises apartheid in the OPT.”
Hate speech or not? The study, Beyond Occupation: Apartheid, Colonialism and International Law in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, was edited by Virginia Tilley. She said the term could not be construed as hate speech because “it’s a denunciation of a political system and state doctrine, not human beings”.

In His Own Words: Senator Rubio on Jordan, Israel the West Bank
NABLUS, Palestinian Territories: Suspected Jewish extremists slashed the tyres of cars in a northern West Bank village and scrawled Hebrew graffiti on a nearby wall, Palestinians and Israelis said on Monday.
Hafez Abu Obaya, head of the Yasuf council, told AFP the incident had taken place overnight Sunday, saying: “Settlers wrote ‘price tag’ on a wall and punctured the tyres of three cars nearby.”
He said the attack took place as the Israeli “army raided four houses and arrested a man in his early 20s.”
A police spokeswoman confirmed to AFP three cars had their tyres burst in the village located south of Nablus and that the words “Price tag (for) stone terror” were scrawled on a nearby wall, in what appeared to be a reference to Palestinian stonethrowing incidents targeting settler vehicles in the West Bank.
Price tag is a euphemism for revenge hate crimes by Israeli extremists.
They are often carried out as an act of retaliation for official Israeli moves to dismantle settler outposts, and tend to target Palestinian property.
A military source confirmed receiving a complaint about vandalised vehicles and said troops had “found three vehicles with their tyres punctured and graffiti on them” in an incident which was viewed “with great severity” as it distracted troops from their core mission of securing the area.
The source confirmed there were searches in Yasuf overnight and that one suspect had been detained.

Law student Michael Corliss thought he was just being a law nerd when he chose a passage from the landmark Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court gay marriage decision for a friend to read at his August wedding ceremony.
But it turned out that Corliss and his bride, Amelia Neptune, both 28, were not alone.
Portions of the decision in Goodridge v. Department of Public Health, the 2003 ruling that made Massachusetts the first state to recognize same-sex marriages, have become common wedding readings among both same-sex and heterosexual couples in Massachusetts and beyond, several local wedding celebrants said.
Passages from the decision are also being recommended on at least one Internet wedding-planning website.
I was surprised by how moving it actually is. You wouldnt think it when you read it, but when its said in the context of a wedding its very powerful, said Kezia Bacon, the Boston wedding celebrant who organized Corliss and Neptunes nuptials.
The passages in the opinion written by Margaret H. Marshall, the courts chief justice at the time, are neither obscure nor legalistic. They had the celebrants throwing around words like beautiful, flowing, and powerful.
Civil marriage is at once a deeply personal commitment to another human being and a highly public celebration of the ideals of mutuality, companionship, intimacy, fidelity, and family, a key passage reads. Because it fulfills yearnings for security, safe haven, and connection that express our common humanity, civil marriage is an esteemed institution, and the decision whether and whom to marry is among lifes momentous acts of self-definition.
Corliss, a Milton native who got married in his hometown and is now in law school in Illinois, said the words struck him because they were unusually poetic for a legal document and marked an unprecedented victory for same-sex marriage advocates like himself.
Wedding celebrants, who design the ceremonies for weddings and, in some jurisdictions, officiate at them, said the passage is as trendy at modern weddings as origami invitations and handing out fake mustaches at the reception to look funny in the photos. The passage is especially popular at same-sex weddings, they said.

London, Jan. 7 (ANI): Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has told West Bank officials to prepare to put the words ‘State of Palestine’ on public documents, official media has said.
Until now passports, ID cards, driving licences and other documents have been stamped ‘Palestinian Authority’.
In November, Abbas led a successful campaign for the UN to upgrade the Palestinians’ status, which was previously of a ‘non-member observer entity’, to that of an observer state, the BBC reports.
According to the report, in a decree carried out by the official Wafa news agency, Abbas said the move on labelling public documents would help bolster the Palestinian state ‘on the ground and build its institutions… and its sovereignty over the its land’.
Last week, Abbas ordered the foreign ministry and embassies to start using ‘State of Palestine’ in official correspondence, Agence France-Presse reported. (ANI)

US State Department Speaks Up on Israeli Settlements (Sort of)
Although the United States does officially consider the building of Israeli settlements in occupied Palestine as illegal, the State Department still doesn't like to use the word “illegal” so as not to piss of Israel, of course. On rare occasions when the US wants to express disappointment with Israel, other words such as “provocative” and “controversial” are used instead of the word “illegal”. Victoria Nuland, a State Department spokesperson, used the phrase, “pattern of provocative action” over Israel's plans to go ahead with new settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. She said what most of us have always known, that further settlement construction and confiscation of Palestinian land will make peace even more distant. Also on Tuesday, the British foreign secretary, William Hague, called all Israeli settlements “illegal under international law” and said that the East Jerusalem project “would make a negotiated two-state solution, with Jerusalem as a shared capital, very difficult to achieve.” visit my blog at www.minwashington.comFrom:Nader AbedViews:5 0ratingsTime:10:38More inNews Politics

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) Taboo-breaking Uruguay is poised to legalize gay marriage, with lawmakers debating Tuesday whether to create a single law governing marriage for heterosexuals and homosexuals. It also would let couples, gay or straight, decide whose surname goes first when they name their children.
The naming proposal breaks with a tradition that has held for centuries across Latin America, where in nearly every country, laws require people to give their children two last names, and the father’s comes first.
“It’s an issue that will generate confusion in a society that has forever taken the father’s name. But these changes in society have to be accepted,” said Deputy Anibal Gloodtdofsky of the right-wing Colorado Party, who told The Associated Press he plans to join the ruling Broad Front coalition and vote in favor on Tuesday.
Legalizing gay marriage has long been a goal of the Broad Front, which has ample majorities in both houses of Congress. After the lower house votes, the project would go to the Senate. President Jose Mujica hopes to sign it into law early next year.
The “Marriage Equality Law” also would replace Uruguay’s 1912 divorce law, which gave only women, and not their husbands, the right to renounce marriage vows without cause. In the early 20th Century, Uruguay’s lawmakers saw this as an equalizer, since men at the time held all the economic and social power in a marriage, historian Gerardo Caetano said.
“A hundred years later, with all the changes that have occurred in Uruguayan society, this argument has fallen of its own accord,” Caetano said Tuesday. “It’s absolutely logical now that divorces can happen if either party wants it. And I really think it won’t have much of an impact.”
The projected law’s co-sponsor, Broad Front deputy Anibal Pereyra, said Uruguay’s civil code needs to be updated so that all the rights and responsibilities apply to anyone who wants to marry, straight or gay.
Uruguay became the first Latin American country to legalize abortion this year, and its Congress is debating a plan to put the government in charge of marijuana sales as a way to attack illegal marijuana traffickers.
The new proposal would make Uruguay the second nation in Latin America and the 12th in the world to legalize gay marriage, after The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina and Denmark.
The bill also would clarify rules for adoption and in-vitro fertilization, and eliminate the words “marido y mujer” (husband and woman) in marriage contracts, referring instead to the gender neutral “contrayentes” (contracting parties).

If you think the last couple of weeks have empowered Hamas, empowered the Israeli right, and harmed the chances of Israeli-Palestinian peace, just wait. Things are about to get worse.
Theyre about to get worse because this Thursday, on the 65th anniversary of the United Nations resolution to partition British Mandatory Palestine, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas plans to ask the U.N. General Assembly to recognize Palestine as a nonmember state. For Abbas, going to the U.N. makes all the sense in the world. For years, hes been doing what the United States has asked. Hes cooperated with Israel against terrorism. Hes affirmed Israels right to exist. But its gotten him nowhere. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has refused to continue the negotiations that Abbas was conducting with his predecessor Ehud Olmert, negotiations both men say were close to fruition. Netanyahu has publicly rejected U.S. President Barack Obamas suggestion that the goal of talks be the creation of a Palestinian state near the 1967 lines. And Israeli settlement growth continues, making Palestinians ever more pessimistic that a Palestinian state is still possible.
Meanwhile, Hamas grows stronger. Last fall, its 2006 abduction of Gilad Shalit led to the release of more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners. This fall, its rocket fire on Israel appears to have won greater freedom of movement for Gazan farmers and fisherman. More Middle Eastern governments are recognizing Hamas rule, and its popularity is growing, including in the West Bank. So its hardly surprising that Abbas sees a bid for U.N. recognition as a last chance to bolster his support and show Palestinians that the path of nonviolence, and recognition of Israels existence, still offers hope. Close observers say Abbas plans to use his victory at the General Assembly to jettison his condition that Israel freeze settlement growth and finally begin serious peace talks.
But in practice, Abbass bid will likely have exactly the opposite effect. For one thing, the Obama administration has no interest in using Abbass U.N. bid to restart serious talks right now. Partly, its a question of personnel. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on her way out. Dennis Ross, who coordinated Mideast policy at the National Security Council, left a year ago and has not been replaced. The office of the Special Envoy for Middle East Peace, formerly led by George Mitchell, barely functions anymore. In the words of one Democratic Middle East insider, There is currently no one in the [U.S.] government who works on the peace process. If America wanted to make a move, youd literally have to hire someone. Even among those Obama-administration officials who do focus on Israel-Palestinian issues, its taken for granted that the United States cannot launch any initiatives until Israeli elections early next year.
In their effort to convince Abbas to shelve his U.N. bid, Obama officials have dangled no U.S. initiatives to restart the peace process. What theyve offered instead is threats that if Abbas pushes forward at the U.N., then Israel, and Congress, will retaliate harshly. U.S. officials have told the Palestinians that, as one close observer puts it, its not going to be like last time [Abbas went to the U.N.]. If this happens again, youll be fucked. Youll lose your funding.
Abbas recently told Ban Ki-moon that if Israel retaliates against his U.N. bid, I will invite Netanyahu to [the Palestinian Authoritys headquarters] in Ramallah and I will give him the keys.
Rationally, it makes no sense for Israel, or Congress, to retaliate against Abbass U.N. bid by starving the Palestinian Authority of funds, since the Authority is cooperating with Israel to prevent terrorism from the West Bank. But Congress froze $200 million in funding for the Palestinian Authority after Abbass U.N. bid last year, and the Obama administration only unfroze it with behind-the-scenes Israeli help.
This time, the retaliation would likely be more severe because Abbass U.N. bid is more threatening. After gaining nonmember-state status at the U.N. General Assembly, Abbas can seek entrance into the International Criminal Court, which could give Palestinians the right to sue Israel for its conduct in the West Bank. Its also election season in Israel. Israeli observers speculate that Netanyahu may retaliate more aggressively this time to mollify a right-wing base unhappy that he agreed too quickly to a Gaza ceasefire.
To Netanyahus right, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has been urging Israel to respond to Abbass U.N. bid by toppling the Palestinian leader. American officials doubt Netanyahu would do that. But they worry that hell withhold tax revenues that Israel collects on the Palestinian Authoritys behalf. The Jerusalem Post has reported that Obama officials also fear Israel might respond to Abbass bid by building settlements in an area of the West Bank called E1, which would destroy any hope of creating a Palestinian state with a capital in East Jerusalem. Netanyahu could also legalize some West Bank outposts currently illegal under Israeli law, as proposed in a report by former Supreme Court vice president Edmond Levy in June.
