‘Israeli apartheid worse than what South Africa endured’: ICJ hearings

Sharing is Caring!

In a continuous show of pro-Palestine solidarity, South Africa slammed “Israel’s” apartheid in Palestine as worse than the one it experienced pre-1994, at the International Court of Justice on Tuesday.

“We as South Africans sense, see, hear, and feel to our core the inhumane discriminatory policies and practices of the Israeli regime as an even more extreme form of the apartheid that was institutionalized against black people in my country,” said South Africa’s ambassador to the Netherlands, Vusimuzi Madonsela, at the top court.

Madonsela added that the Israeli apartheid, being a crime itself, is simultaneously and fundamentally settler colonialism that South Africa felt obligated “to call out and end.”

The ICJ is conducting hearings throughout the week to assess the legal consequences of the Israeli 75-year-long occupation, with the court focusing specifically on the past 57 years of the occupation, beginning in 1967, with an unprecedented 52 nations, including the United States and Russia, expected to present evidence.
