Israel guilty of apartheid, United Nations says

AMMAN, March 16, 2017 (WAFA) – The United Nations’ Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia concluded, in a special report, that Israel's actions toward the Palestinians, most notably dividing them into four different groups, proved that Israel is imposing a one state racial regime.

"This fragmentation, coupled with the application of discrete bodies of law to those groups, lie at the heart of the apartheid regime," the report read. "They serve to enfeeble opposition to it and to veil its very existence. This report concludes, on the basis of overwhelming evidence, that Israel is guilty of the crime of apartheid, and urges swift action to oppose and end it."

In addition to this fragmentation, the authors argue that Israel is also enforcing apartheid through its discriminatory hiring practices, inferior services, and "demographic engineering."

"Demographic engineering is another area of policy serving the purpose of maintaining Israel as a Jewish State. Most well known is Israeli law conferring on Jews worldwide the right to enter Israel and obtain Israeli citizenship regardless of their countries of origin and whether or not they can show links to Israel-Palestine, while withholding any comparable right from Palestinians, including those with documented ancestral homes in the country."
