Hi. Jew here. Israeli actually. I, for one, believes that Jews are equal to everyone else and as such are capable of committing the crime of apartheid. "Apartheid" is a descriptor of a system of governance. The problem is Israeli apartheid, not calling it out.
.@RepTedDeutch (D-FL) after @RepRashida's speech opposing #IronDome funding: "I cannot allow one of my colleagues to stand on the floor of the House of Representatives and label the Jewish democratic state of Israel an apartheid state." c-span.org/video/?514761-2/h…
I sincerely recommend that everyone read @btselem's (Israeli group!) report on apartheid: thisisapartheid.btselem.org/… This sucks. A lot. I hate that my home country is an apartheid state. Oppressing Palestinians. But pretending it isn't the case is not going to make it less true.
