"[W]hen you Google the terms Israel + apartheid, you get 5.5 million
hits. A lot of somebodies somewhere are making the connection without the
help of CNN, ABC or Fox News." July 20, 2006 - Issue 192

White South Africans constructed for themselves a bogus scriptural narrative in which the God of Abraham promised them somebody else's land, and brought it into modern history with the embellishment that they were holding the line for the free world against godless communism and the black menace. How similar is Israel's line that European Jews are promised the land of Muslim and Christian Arabs, and that they now hold the line for the free world against radical Islam and those ungrateful brown people?

We at BC have to believe that if the American people knew the truth about what their tax dollars pay for in Israel and what is left of Palestine, there would be a deep and widespread revulsion, similar to that occasioned by US support for apartheid in South Africa. But there are important differences between that time and this one. Though unspeakably odious, racist South African was only marginally important to US interests. By contrast, the maintenance of Israel's apartheid regime, essentially a white hi-tech and military outpost in the middle of all those brown people sitting atop a large share of the world's proven oil reserves is absolutely central to US foreign policy for the foreseeable future. The US is Israel's banker, its arms depot, and its principal diplomatic sponsor. The US is far more complicit in the crimes of the Israeli state than it ever was in South Africa.

The apartheid state in question is, of course, Israel. Its first class citizens are Israeli Jews, the majority of them of European or sometimes American origin. The second class citizens are Israeli Arabs, who enjoy significant but limited rights under the law including token representation in the Knesset. The eleventh class citizens are not citizens at all. They are Palestinians. One expects to be able to say that Palestinians live in Palestine and are governed by Palestinians, but the truth is something different. The areas in which Palestinians may inhabit have shrunk nearly every year since the Nakba, their name for the wave of mass deportations, murders, the dispossession, destruction and exile of whole Arab towns, cities and regions that attended the 1948 founding of the state of Israel. As the whole world, except for the US public knows, Palestinians have lived under military occupation, without land, without rights, without hope, for nearly sixty years now.


"As the whole world, except for the US public knows...." That quote is priceless, since it shows the true lack of knowledge, if not outright ignorance of the American public to the Israeli "ETHNIC CLEANSING" of Palestine.

How much longer will the American public not only stay ignorant of the Palestinian Holocaust, but also let its government help the Israeli's slaughter the indigenous Palestinians, the Lebanese and soon, Syrians?

Help the American public provides to Israel in the form of money, weapons and backing. Backing at the United Nations, where the USA has cratered 32 UN resolutions condemning Israel for the various criminal activities it perpetuates against the Palestinians on a regular basis.

Help the American public provides like the recently approved order being shipped to Israel of the latest version of the terribly efficient F-16I long range fighter bomber. Or the thousands upon thousands of various types of bombs, like the cluster bombs Israel sowed over southern Lebanon last Summer. Cluster bombs the IOF spread far and wide. Cluster bombs that were spread AFTER the Israeli's knew that a Cease-Fire was to start in 72 hours. Time enough for the rogue Israeli regime to spread over ONE MILLION Cluster Bombs.

Help the American public provides in the form of money, around $6 BILLION dollars per year given to the deranged Likudnik government.

How much longer will the American public remain an accomplice to this travesty of supporting the world's #1 Apartheid regime, the State of Israel?

When the Palestinians have been totally eliminated by the IOF murdering its way to a Palestinian free Israel, will the American public finally awaken from their stupor and realize that their hands are covered in Palestinian blood? Will the American public demand an accounting from their government and matters set right? Or will they once again, succumb to the siren's song, roll over and go back to sleep?
