Historic Report: U.N. Agency Says Israel Imposing Apartheid Regime on Palestinians

DemocracyNow! welcomes Richard Falk, author of "Israeli Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid"

For the first time, a United Nations agency has directly accused Israel of imposing an “apartheid regime” on the Palestinian people. The report also urges governments to “support boycott, divestment and sanctions [BDS] activities and respond positively to calls for such initiatives.”

The findings come in a new report published by the U.N. Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, which is comprised of 18 Arab states. For more, we speak with the co-author of the report, Richard Falk. He’s professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University and previously served as the U.N. special rapporteur on Palestinian human rights.
