Ex-U.N. Official John Dugard: Israel's Crimes are "Infinitely Worse" Than in Apartheid South Africa

John Dugard's quote on Israel's apartheid being worse than the apartheid regime of South Africa
Christopher John Robert Dugard (born 23 August 1936, Fort Beaufort),[1] known as John Dugard, is a South African professor of international law. His main academic specializations are in Roman-Dutch law, public international law, jurisprudence, human rights, criminal procedure and international criminal law. He has served on the International Law Commission, the primary UN institution for the development of international law, and has been active in reporting on human-rights violations by Israel in the Palestinian territories.

He has written several books on apartheid, human rights, and international law, in addition to coauthoring textbooks on criminal law and procedure and international law. He has also written extensively on South African apartheid.
The ADL, which stands for 'Another Damn Lie,' hates this guy, so he must be doing something right!

That is what happens when one points out the horrendous way(s) Apartheid Israel treats the indigenous Palestinians. You'll get slimed, terrorized, called nasty names, get threats over your phone to you and your family and most likely, lose your job, if not your life.

Mr. Dugard is one intelligent, industrious type when it comes to writing books; Articles in scholarly journals; UN reports and textbooks. In other words, when it comes to law and those trying to warp it for their own sadistic benefit, like Israel, Mr. Dugard has the smarts to expose their rackets, cons and distortions.

As Palestine joins the International Criminal Court, former U.N. Special Rapporteur John Dugard talks about how an apartheid case could be brought against Israel in the ICC. "I’m a South African who lived through apartheid," Dugard said. "I have no hesitation in saying that Israel’s crimes are infinitely worse than those committed by the apartheid regime of South Africa."

Transcript of Mr. Dugard's appearance on "Democracy Now" from 2015.

Here's a sample:
JOHN DUGARD: I think the strategy of Israel and also of the United States is simply to allow talks to go on forever and ever, while Israel annexes more land and takes over Palestinian territory. The purpose of the International Criminal Court, as I see it, is to circumvent this strategy on the part of Israel and the United States and to make Israel and the United States see and face the issues very clearly—namely, that Israel has committed very, very serious international crimes. And I might add that I’m a South African who lived through apartheid. I have no hesitation in saying that Israel’s crimes are infinitely worse than those committed by the apartheid regime of South Africa.

For seven years, I visited the Palestinian territory twice a year. I also conducted a fact-finding mission after the Operation Cast Lead in Gaza in 2008, 2009. So I am familiar with the situation, and I am familiar with the apartheid situation. I was a human rights lawyer in apartheid South Africa. And I, like virtually every South African who visits the occupied territory, has a terrible sense of déjà vu. We’ve seen it all before, except that it is infinitely worse. And what has happened in the West Bank is that the creation of a settlement enterprise has resulted in a situation that closely resembles that of apartheid, in which the settlers are the equivalent of white South Africans. They enjoy superior rights over Palestinians, and they do oppress Palestinians. So, one does have a system of apartheid in the occupied Palestinian territory. And I might mention that apartheid is also a crime within the competence of the International Criminal Court.
All net, baby all net! Gosh, can you believe that Wikipedia has a page dedicated to "Israel and the apartheid analogy?" And that its slanted towards Israel? NO, really? Gee, who'd thunk that?

This guy better have a good security team.

  1. Sometimes I get caught up in my way of self pity, but when I read of this kind of daily horror Palestinians go through, I am ashamed of myself.

    That's after I did some personal reflection and I admit to that, but can you imagine the multitudes of Americans so caught up in their daily lives of self worshipping, Facebooking with selfies, obsession over sports and high tech gadgets. etc...?

    When it all collapses, Americans will scream like banshees.

  3. Telling the truth about Israel at that level is living dangerously.

    "Infinitely worse"... words well chosen. There is no bottom to the depravity of judaism.

    The problem of judaism, if it is ever resolved, well be resolved without Americans' help or cognizance. Americans are too damned stupid... too damned dumbed down.

  4. Americans, and the incredibly ignorant, and foolish Christian church enables what Israel does to these helpless people. I see it, I hear, and I'm sick of it. Any and all support for Israel by using faith based systems is neither biblical or ethical.

    Any Christian that supports Israel is Antichrist. Christians have bought the "Gods Chosen" and Holocaust lie and have raised Israel to the level of godhood and worship. And it doesn't end there. Aetheist support Israel too.

    The world is gone insane and America leads the path to perdition.

  6. I was reading an article by a south Afrikaner who was trying to convince us that Israel apartheid didn't compare to South African apartheid. He went on and on. I don't know where they come up with these people.
