Amnesty International Declares Israel an Apartheid State
After an extensive investigation, Amnesty International released a report on 1 February 2022 officially declaring that Israel is committing apartheid against Palestinians. The report is entitled “Israel’s Apartheid against Palestinians: Cruel System of Domination and Crime against Humanity”. It concludes that the consistent demolitions of Palestinian properties, unlawful killings, forcible transfer, movement restrictions, and the denial of nationality and citizenship to Palestinians make up a system of apartheid.
AI writes: “Amnesty International has analysed Israel’s intent to create and maintain a system of oppression and domination over Palestinians and examined its key components: territorial fragmentation; segregation and control; dispossession of land and property; and denial of economic and social rights. It has concluded that this system amounts to apartheid. Israel must dismantle this cruel system and the
international community must pressure it to do so. All those with jurisdiction over the crimes committed to maintain the system should investigate them.”
