The Palestinians have filed a 350 page complaint in Geneva

the Guardian- Palestine files complaint against Israel under anti-racism treaty
Israel ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination in 1979 and, Palestine, which gained UN observer state status five years ago, signed in 2014. The submission is believed to be the first interstate complaint filed under the treaty.
As Israel is a signatory, they are obliged to respond within 3 months

I think this may prove to be a good thing, as somewhat flimsy accusations of colonial style apartheid by Israel have been bandied about for decades...this will require an official determination

Anastasia Crickley of Maynooth was previously chairperson of the 18 experts who will make the determination

Current list here: OHCHR | Membership of the Committee

Nothing flimsy about these accusations. It is clearly the case, beating

Derry 72 hands down, or up as some of them were and are today.

And then there's this:

"A recent study of Palestinian textbooks found that Palestinian children are being taught to glorify and value terrorism and violence. The Palestinian Authority and its Minister of Education, Sabri Saidam, want Arab schools in Jerusalem to teach the students why Muslims should be killing Jews."

And this:
"The author of an op-ed published on the website of Fatah's Information and Culture Commission in Lebanon recently stated that Shakespeare was accurate in his antisemitic description of the Jews as seen in his character Shylock from the play The Merchant of Venice"

Antisemitic Fatah op-ed: Shakespeare's Shylock was an accurate description of the Jews

"Shakespeare correctly described the deceitful, greedy, trickster, extortionist, and lowly character of the Jews in the story The Merchant of Venice"

Racism = not wanting to be wiped off the face of the earth by people who hate you.

Whatever about internet memes.

What do you think about the substance that the accusation was based on. E.g. Why comparing Israel to the Nazis is always anti-Semitic | Ken Livingstone, the former mayor of London, indirectly revived this trope today, leading to his chaotic but eventual suspension by the Labour Party

EDIT -I came across this recently which I think very succinctly differentiates between the two, criticism, and antisemitism. To my fellow Arabs: Yes, anti-Zionism is antisemitism | Fred Maroun | The Blogs | The Times of Israel
No an internet meme is all this thread is worth.

As for you, spare me, you really are a racist. :D

When will we see a formal complaint against the so called Palestinian leadership. Wouldn't that be more to the point.

Even you can't be that stupid that you think this type of "law-fare" actually serves the interests of the Palestinian people.

"...After 66 years of mistakes and missed opportunities, it is time for us Palestinians to create the conditions for peace and to work for a better future. It is time that we stopped pretending that we can destroy Israel or drive the Jews into the sea. It is time that we stopped listening to Muslim radicals or Arab regimes that use us to continue a pointless, destructive, and immoral war with Israel.

Let’s be realistic. We Palestinians are not doing well.

In Gaza, our schools are controlled by Muslim fanatics who indoctrinate our children, and Hamas uses our civilians as human shields in a losing battle against Israel. Hamas maintains power through violence, and it ensures that money is spent on its arsenal rather than on making the Palestinians’ lives better...


If you actually wanted to help the Palestinians, then you would demand that the incitement of Palestinians stop. You would assist Israel in creating jobs in the West Bank for Palestinians. You would assist Palestinians in developing an economy and ensuring that the money is not used to enrich the terrorists’ rule or to augment the terrorists’ arsenal. You would be encouraging Palestinians to live in peace with Jews. If you really wanted freedom, human rights, democracy, and justice for the Palestinians, you would be better moving your sights away from your obsession with Israel to other oppressors of them.

This report is a waste of time. Just more grist to the mill of the peanut gallery. That's the only purpose it will serve. That must be obvious even to you.
