Israeli policies on Palestinians are tantamount to racism: Amnesty International

The international human rights organization Amnesty International has said that Israel has adopted laws and policies regarding the Palestinians in the occupied and Israeli territories which are tantamount to apartheid.

A recent report by Amnesty International accuses the Israeli state of pursuing a policy of bullying and domination of the Palestinian population in the interests of the Jewish population.

Racism or apartheid is considered a crime against humanity under international law.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry has rejected Amnesty International's report as a "combination of lies and contradictions".

An Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman said the baseless allegations were made by an organization whose hatred of Israel was clear.

An Israeli spokesman said the report did not recognize the right to establish an Israeli state and that the language used in the report was clearly intended to defame Israel and provoke anti-Semitic sentiment.

Apartheid refers to a state-sponsored racial discrimination policy. The white minority in South Africa pursued a policy of racial discrimination that lasted from 1948 to 1991.

Arab population in Israel

Arabs make up 20% of Israel's population of 4.4 million. In addition, 2.4 million Palestinians live in West Jordan and East Jerusalem, which were occupied by Israel in the 1967 war.

In addition, 1.9 million Palestinians live in the Gaza Strip, from which Israel withdrew in 2005. The United Nations still considers the Gaza Strip an occupied territory.

A large number of Palestinians live in the West Bank, which is controlled by the Palestinian Authority, while Gaza is controlled by the militant group Hamas.

There are 600,000 Jewish settlements in 140 settlements in West Jordan and East Jerusalem. The majority of the international community considers these settlements illegal. Israel does not recognize the views of the international community.

Officially, all Israeli citizens are considered equal citizens, regardless of religion or race. But according to Amnesty International, Israel treats the Palestinians as a "lesser non-Jewish race."

According to Amnesty International, Israel pursues a coherent policy of racial segregation through laws, policies and regulations aimed at depriving Palestinians of equal rights in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Its purpose is to oppress and dominate the Palestinian people.

The report by Amnesty International states that Israel has developed a legal framework that stands in the way of Palestinian refugees living outside of Israel and seeking to return.

According to the United Nations, there have been 5.3 million Palestinians and their children displaced since the founding of Israel in 1948-49, claiming the right to return to their former homes.

Israel says that if this is done, it will be defeated in terms of population and the existence of the Jewish state could be endangered.

Israel says all citizens have equal rights and are not discriminated against on the basis of race or religion.

Israel says all its citizens have equal rights

Amnesty International reports that coercion is a key element in Israel's policy of dismembering the Palestinian population, while other components of the policy include denial of citizenship and residency to Palestinians, restrictions on freedom of movement and resources. Includes blocking access.

Amnesty International reports that it has gathered evidence of Israel's inhumane treatment of Palestinians, including detention, torture, extrajudicial killings, severe beatings and restrictions on fundamental freedoms aimed at maintaining such a system. Which is tantamount to crimes against humanity and apartheid.

Amnesty International Secretary-General Mrs. Agnes Kalamard has called for global action.

The Secretary-General of Amnesty International has stated that there is no justification for this system of racist oppression against tens of millions of people.

The international community, while acknowledging the reality of Israel's apartheid, must find ways to achieve justice that have yet to be found.
