Israel Apartheid week is coming to Toronto’s University of Toronto and the campuses of four other Canadian cities as well as two British campuses (guess which?!) and one NYC campus!
You know how it goes:
The aim of Israeli Apartheid Week is to raise awareness about Israel as an apartheid state and how apartheid affects the different aspects of Palestinian life. According to the keynote speaker of the week, Palestinian member of the Israeli Knesset (Parliament) Dr. Jamal Zahalka, â€œIsrael is implementing apartheid policies in Palestine by building the apartheid separation wall, bypass roads for Jews only in the West Bank, restrictions on movement of Palestinians, hundreds of checkpoints, in addition to the siege and daily violation of basic human rights of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.â€ He adds, â€œEven Palestinian citizens of Israel are in fact second degree citizens that suffer systematic discrimination in all aspects of their lives.â€
Hmmmm, allow me to quote the quote from the “Filasteen” press release: “the KEYNOTE SPEAKER IS A PALESTINIAN MEMBER OF THE ISRAELI KNESSET.”
Bwahahaahahahahahaha!! Apartheid, my ass.
