Is Israel-Palestine Comparable to Apartheid South Africa? (Tor Guimaraes, USA, 06/02/21 3:48 am)

On one hand, I agree to some extent with John Eipper, who wrote that "the most accurate model to describe Israel-Palestine today is Apartheid South Africa."

Israel has not established camps equivalent to Dachau or Treblinka, just "slow death" concentration camps represented by open-air prisons where Palestinian homes can be invaded any time of day or night by the IDF just so they can "show who is boss," according to IDF instructions. To cut through the regular media distortions, Google "breaking the silence," where IDF soldiers able to keep their conscience tell about the atrocities being committed, or just watch the videos I provided (and there are many others).

On the other hand, to contradict the notion that "the most accurate model to describe Israel-Palestine today is Apartheid South Africa," the South African army was just trying to enforce the injustices associated with Apartheid. They had already completely taken all the land and resources they wanted from the indigenous population, and the conflict had practically no religious dimension compared to the Palestinian conflict.

In Palestine the Israelis steal Palestinian property at will, treat them like Untermenschen, put them into concentration camps, deprive them of due process, commit atrocities on innocent people, invade their places of worship, etc. It sure looks much worse than South African Apartheid, perhaps not an all-out genocide because the world is watching, even though the Israelis bombed the Gaza media building.

On a different topic, John E asked, "is Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital the cause of the latest flare-up? If so, then why did it take over three years for the rockets to start raining in?"

No, it was not the trigger. As I stated earlier, Trump's acceptance of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the Abraham Accord gave Netanyahu the go-ahead to increase dramatically the settler colonialism behavior which has been going on from the beginning. That was the holy water from the US government, while the Accord formalized and made nice with a few corrupted Arab states, in preparation for the storm Netanyahu needed to survive his corruption conviction.

What triggered this latest unarmed Palestinian people to revolt once again against one of the most powerful militaries in the world was Israelis stepping up the stealing of Palestinian homes without recourse, or just demolishing them. The last straw was when the IDF invaded one of the most sacred mosques in Islam and brutalized families in prayer. This triggered the rockets from Hamas, and massive counter retaliation by the Israeli Air Force.

JE comments:  We find another parallel with Apartheid South Africa in the ten detached ethnic "homelands."  Their lack of continguity ensured that they could be easily controlled, rather like the West Bank and Gaza in Israel-Palestine.
