The report was authored by two critics of Israeli state practice: Virginia Tilley, professor of political science at Southern Illinois University, and Richard Falk, former UN special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories, and professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University.

Noting how "the expert consensus [is] that the prohibition of apartheid is universally applicable and was not rendered moot by the collapse of apartheid in South Africa", the report argues that Israel is "guilty of policies and practices that constitute the crime of apartheid", a "crime against humanity under customary international law and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court".

The report is a "detailed analysis of Israeli legislation, policies and practices" that highlights how Israel "operates an apartheid regime", including through "demographic engineering".

Palestinian citizens of Israel are described as "subjected to oppression on the basis of not being Jewish", it said.

Palestinians in East Jerusalem similarly experience "discrimination in access to education, healthcare, employment, residency and building rights", as well as "expulsions and home demolitions".



Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip are governed by "military law" alongside Jewish settlers "governed by Israeli civil law", the report said.

Palestinian refugees and exiles are "prohibited from returning to their homes in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory" on the basis that they "constitute a 'demographic threat' and that their return would alter the demographic character of Israel".

As well as urging governments to back BDS, the report recommends that the UN and its member states should "revive the Special Committee against Apartheid, and the United Nations Centre Against Apartheid (1976-1991)", which would then "report authoritatively on Israeli practices and policies relating to the crime of apartheid".

The report also suggests an advisory opinion be sought from the International Court of Justice "as to whether the means used by Israel to maintain control over the Palestinian people amount to the crime of apartheid".

David Keane, associate professor in law at Middlesex University, said the new report differs from previous ones on the subject because it "expressly attaches the apartheid label".

OPINION: Israeli Labor Party adopts the apartheid mantra

The report could contribute to an already deteriorating relationship between the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the United Nations.

"For Palestinians and their allies, the report will help to provide a solid basis for their work," Nadia Hijab, executive director of al-Shabaka - The Palestinian Policy Network - told Al Jazeera .

Citing the reputation and credibility of the authors, Hijab described the report as "a clear, concise document" whose recommendations are "timely and much needed".

the most troubling part about this, to me, is that papers like the NY Times refuse to discuss the contents within the report in favor of giving voice, only to those that wish to disparage it.

You're posting this on a dying hip hop forum, with the few members left being both socially and emotionally inept, like it's going to change anything or persuade anyone.

Idgi man. This shit is worse than chancey's finger paints

Mikey, what is it like wondering through life arguing about things you dont understand?

Its like the 10 year old that tries to jump into adult conversation and gets an audible show of sympathy and makes everyone uncomfortable as they try to remain polite.

I understand that you need help, I just hope you realize that sooner, rather than later. It is hard to talk about mental health, but you should not be afraid to ask for help in this area.

Also, move to Palestine.

mikey, you don't have to speak when you have nothing to say. It is ok to just shut the fuck up and watch grown people talk.
