Grasp Israeli apartheid by the roots – decolonize!

In a piece for Lower Class Magazine, appearing in English in The Left Berlin, I discuss the new Amnesty International report accusing the State of Israel of committing the crime against humanity of apartheid. I note how different discourse around the report is on the Israeli left compared with Germany, and review some of its content. I note the criticism from Palestinians and their allies, which argue the report should not have shied away from identifying the structural root of Israeli apartheid: settler-colonialism. The conclusion, I argue, must be decolonization – involving both the colonized Palestinians and all Israelis willing to live among them as equals.
