Abusive Israeli Policies Constitute Crimes of Apartheid, Persecution

Israeli authorities are committing the crimes against humanity of apartheid and
persecution, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. The
finding is based on an overarching Israeli government policy to maintain
the domination by Jewish Israelis over Palestinians and grave abuses
committed against Palestinians living in the occupied territory,
including East Jerusalem.

The 213-page report, “A Threshold Crossed: Israeli Authorities and the Crimes of Apartheid and Persecution,”
examines Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. It presents the
present-day reality of a single authority, the Israeli government,
ruling primarily over the area between the Jordan River and
Mediterranean Sea, populated by two groups of roughly equal size, and
methodologically privileging Jewish Israelis while repressing
Palestinians, most severely in the occupied territory.
