5/13/21 Phil Weiss on the Growing Recognition of Israeli Apartheid

by | May 14, 2021 | Interviews

Scott talks to Phil Weiss about Israel-Palestine in light of the violence of the last few days. Weiss begins by pointing out that Human Rights Watch has finally declared Israel to be a single apartheid state. In other words, the two-state solution is dead, and the supposed Palestinian territories are really just occupied Israeli lands. Other human rights groups have echoed this same sentiment. The growing acknowledgement of this fact has helped to fuel recent tensions and violence, says Weiss, but more importantly, it’s helping to increase awareness of the plight of the Palestinians. With the promise of the two-state solution all but shattered at this point, millions of well-meaning but essentially disinterested people around the world may start to side with the Palestinians and finally support their claim to equal rights.
