How to hold Israel accountable for the crime of apartheid

As the US administration engages in designing and implementing its “regional solution” to the Arab-Israeli conflict, and as the international community is “celebrating and remembering” the anniversaries of the 1917 Belfour Declaration, the 1948 Nakba, and the 1967 Israeli occupation of the remaining of Palestinian lands, they should question the nature of the “one-state reality” that exists in Palestine-Israel.

Any solution or analysis should start from the one-state reality - not to be confused with the one-state solution - its nature and policies, its apartheid structures and regime, and its settler colonial project in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.

This is a crucial deliberation as the failures of the quarter-of-a-century-old Oslo Accords framework reveal where the problems lie and exposes the limitations and structural deficiencies of an approach that dismisses the root causes of the “conflict” and supports the normalcy of domination, colonisation, and apartheid.
