This weeks reading covers the debate over the application of the term apartheid in the Israeli-Palestine context (Tapper & Sucharov, 2019). Apartheid means "apartness" in Afrikaans and is used to describe the institutionalized system of racial segregation and discrimination in South Africa between 1948 and 1994 (Tapper & Sucharov, 2019, p. 176). Though the term originated in South Africa, it has been used by some of Israel's critics to describe Israel's rule over Palestinians. Tapper and Sucharov (2019) explain that supporters of the apartheid label see it as a way to raise issues regarding human rights in Israel/Palestine.

Upon watching Naila and the Uprising, the scenes of the first intifada really took me back. It does not seem like so long ago that Palestinians united to reject Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. The first intifada was difficult for many Palestinians, who had long been treated so brutally by the Israeli occupiers. It was so glorious to see Palestinians come together and stand against tyranny. I was there along with my family, although I was a much younger man of 57 then. What people mostly remember from that time was the violence between the protesters and the IDF. Indeed there was violence, two of my grandsons died during the clashes. Families were being torn apart all around us. The IDF thought arresting and deporting our people…
