On 14 August 2020 the Australian ABC radio and TV news announced that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) had agreed to recognize Israel and exchange ambassadors with what the ABC described as “the Jewish State”. Not only was this descriptive  false and anti-Arab anti-Semitic (Arabs are 50.3% of the Subjects of Apartheid Israel) it was also grossly anti-Jewish anti-Semitic (all anti-racist Jews totally condemn the crimes of a nuclear terrorist, racist Zionist-run, genocidally racist, serial war criminal, democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel).

One can readily identify 4 particularly notorious and brutal Apartheid states in the world today, namely (1) Apartheid Israel (it prosecutes a century-long and ongoing  Palestinian Genocide,  and 72% of its now  50.3% majority of Indigenous Palestinian Subjects have been violently deprived of all human rights for 53 years and cannot vote for the government ruling them); (2) Apartheid Myanmar (through rape, murder and destruction it has killed thousands of Muslim Rohingyas and driven 1 million from their homes in Rakhine State in an ongoing Rohingyan Genocide); (3) Apartheid UAE (50% of its Arab population are women and girls who are subject to gross human rights abuse, as are its foreign worker underclass); and (4)  Apartheid Saudi Arabia (that grossly abuses the 50% of its population who are female and also grossly abuses foreign workers as does Apartheid UAE [1-4].

Apartheid is regarded as a vile and punishable  crime against Humanity by the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the crime of Apartheid [5]. Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) should be applied to all of these degenerate Apartheid rogue states and to all their supporters and collaborators as were successfully applied to Apartheid South Africa and its racist supporters [6].

(1). Apartheid Israel and the ongoing Palestinian Genocide.

Sari Nusseibeh (a professor of philosophy at Al-Quds University, Palestine) on why Israel can’t be a “Jewish State” (2011): “Third,  recognition of Israel as a “Jewish state” implies that Israel is, or should be, either a theocracy (if we take the word “Jewish” to apply to the religion of Judaism) or an apartheid state (if we take the word “Jewish” to apply to the ethnicity of Jews), or both, and in all of these cases, Israel is then no longer a democracy – something which has rightly been the pride of most Israelis since the country’s founding in 1948. Fourth, at least one in five Israelis – 20 per cent of the population, according to the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics – is ethnically Arab (and are mostly either Muslim, Christian, Druze or Bahai), and recognising Israel as a “Jewish State” as such makes one-fifth of the population of Israel automatically strangers in their own native land and opens the door to legally reducing them, most undemocratically, to second-class citizens (or perhaps even stripping them of their citizenship and other rights) – something that no-one, much less a Palestinian leader, has a right to do” [7].

Professor Sari Nusseibeh was prescient. The race-based Apartheid Israeli Knesset (parliament) passed the racist Jewish Nation-State Law on 18 July 2018, with a vote of 62 to 55 with two abstentions. This racist law offensively and intolerably ignores the Indigenous Palestinians who are 50% of Israeli subjects and enshrines a special, dominant, race-based position for the Jewish Israelis who constitute a 47% minority of the subjects of Apartheid Israel. The racist Israel law states that Hebrew is the official language but concedes that “The Arabic language has a special status in the state” – however Arabic is not an official language despite being presently spoken by over 50% of Israeli subjects, having been spoken by 95% of the Palestinian people before commencement of Zionist colonization a century ago , and having been the overwhelmingly dominant language in Palestine for about 1,400 years. It further states that “The regulation of the Arab language in state institutions or when facing them will be regulated by law” but the law has been passed by a bare majority in a racist Apartheid  state that excludes 72% of its now 50% Indigenous  Palestinian  population from voting for the government ruling it [8, 9].

The racist, Apartheid Israeli “Jewish Nation-State Law” makes it abundantly clear that the racist Zionists running Apartheid Israel are resolutely committed to a neo-Nazi Apartheid State and endless, deadly subjugation of the Indigenous Palestinians with the ever-present threat of 100% ethnic cleansing of Palestine. The world must act over Apartheid Israel as it did over Apartheid South Africa. A clear, humane solution  to the continuing human rights catastrophe in Palestine is a unitary state (a “one state solution”) as in post-Apartheid South Africa that would involve return of all refugees, zero tolerance for racism, equal rights for all, all human rights for all, one-person-one-vote, justice, goodwill, reconciliation, airport-level security, nuclear weapons removal, internationally-guaranteed national security initially based on the present armed forces, and untrammelled access for all citizens to all of Palestine. It can and should happen tomorrow [10, 11].

America, the UK, and US- and Zionist-subverted Mainstream Australia routinely and falsely  describe Apartheid Israel as “the only democracy in the Middle East” when (a) there are other democracies in the Middle East (Cyprus, Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Lebanon) and (b) Apartheid Israel is only  a democracy-by-genocide – of 14 million Palestinians, 7 million are Exiled and cannot step foot in what has been the land of their forebears for millennia, 5 million Occupied Palestinians have zero human rights and cannot vote for the government governing them (Apartheid) [12], and about 2 million “lucky” Israeli Palestinians  can vote but exist as Third Class citizens under over 60 race-based, neo-Nazi,  discriminatory laws that invite them to leave  if they don’t like it [13, 14].

In the territory ruled by Apartheid Israel for 53 years (formerly Mandated Palestine plus ethnically cleansed and illegally annexed parts of Lebanon and Syria) the total population in 2020 is 8.7 million (100%) comprising 6.9 million Indigenous Palestinians (50.3%), 6.4 million Jews (46.7%), and 0.4 million non-Arab non-Jews (2.9%). The  sorely oppressed   Occupied Palestinians represent 72% of the  majority 6.9 million Palestinians, have zero human rights, and cannot vote for the government ruling them i.e. Apartheid that is regarded as a crime against Humanity [12].

In the sense of “democracy as satisfaction of fundamental popular wishes”, Apartheid Israel also fails because of the horrendous and deadly deprivation imposed on  millions of Exiled Palestinians in Middle East refugee camps, 5 million Occupied Palestinians and indeed many  of the 2  million “lucky” Palestinian Israelis. Thus the GDP per capita is $42,000 for Israelis as compared to a deadly $3,200 for Occupied Palestinians  [15, 16] whose life expectancy is 10 years less than for Israelis. In the 21st century on average each year about 5,000 Occupied Palestinians have died from Israeli violence (550) or from Israeli-imposed deprivation (4,200). In the century-long Palestinian Genocide since the British invasion of the Middle East in 2014 about 2.2 million Palestinians have died from  violence (0.1 million) or from imposed deprivation (2.1 million). Numbers of expelled Palestinians  totalled 800,000 in the 1948 Naqba (Catastrophe) and a further 400,000 Arabs were expelled in the 1967 Naksa (Setback)[17-20]. 120 mosques were destroyed by the Zionists after 1948 and over 500 Palestinian villages and towns  were demolished  [21, 22].

Pro-Apartheid Australia is second only to Trump America as a supporter of Apartheid Israel,  but for all that US lackey Australia slavishly supports Apartheid Israel, this genocidal rogue state does not repay the favour and variously violates, perverts and subverts Australians and Australian institutions in some 50 ways [23]. Apartheid Israel has not confined its genocidal criminality to the Palestinian Genocide – it has been complicit in genocidal atrocities around the world, notably in Myanmar, Guatemala, Sudan and Sri Lanka [24].  Apartheid Israeli forces have violently and murderously attacked  the territory and/or assets of 13 countries (Tunisia, Sudan, Uganda, Libya, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Iran, and the US). Apartheid Israel war criminality has generated a huge tally of avoidable mortality (excess mortality) from deprivation in Israeli-occupied countries. The summary data provided here is of 1950-2005 excess mortality/ 2005 population (both in millions, m) and expressed as a percentage (%) for each country occupied and as a total for all the countries subject to Occupation by Apartheid Israel: Apartheid Israel [0.095m/6.685m =1.4%] – Egypt [19.818m/74.878m = 26.5%], Jordan [0.630m/5.750m = 11.0%], Lebanon [0.535m/3.761m = 14.2%], Occupied Palestinian Territories [0.677m/3.815m = 17.7%], Syria [2.198m/18.650m = 11.8%], total = 23.858m/106.854 = 22.3% [25].

One notes that war is the penultimate in racism and genocide the ultimate in racism. Article 2 of the post-WW2 UN Genocide Convention states: “In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: (a) Killing members of the group; (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group” [26].  Eminent International Law expert Professor Francis Boyle (University of Illinois) re the Palestinian Genocide (2013): “The Palestinians have been the victims of genocide as defined by the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, under which a government can be guilty of genocide even if it intends to destroy a mere “part” of the group” [27].

(2). Apartheid Myanmar and the ongoing Rohingyan Genocide.

Silence over genocide is complicity in genocide. Even worse is whitewashing of genocidal Myanmar military  action that has killed thousands of Rohingyas and generated 1 million Rohingyan refugees [13, 28-30]. Once lauded but now globally condemned, Myanmar politician Aung San Suu Kyi has repeatedly denied the Rohingyan Genocide, for example: “It is not the intention of the Myanmar government to apportion blame or to abnegate responsibility. We condemn all human rights violations and unlawful violence … Since 5 September, there have been no armed clashes and there have been no clearance operations” [31]. Half the Rohingyan refugees are children and three quarters are women and children. There is something utterly awful about women excusing atrocities against women and children. One is reminded of US Ambassador to the UN (and later US Secretary of State) , Madeleine Albright,  who on 12 May  1996  defended UN sanctions against Iraq on a “60 Minutes” segment in which anti-racist Jewish American journalist Lesley Stahl asked her “We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?” and to which Albright replied “We think the price is worth it.”  [32, 33]. Apartheid Israel is intimately involved in Aung San Suu Kyi-led Myanmar’s Rohingya Genocide through supply of advanced gunboats and armaments as well as military training to genocidal Burmese forces in Rakhine state [34-36].

(3). Apartheid UAE, gross suppression of females, maltreatment of  foreign workers,  Yemeni Genocide and Muslim Genocide.

The wealthy United Arab Emirates (UAE) grossly suppresses the rights of females who represent about 50% of the population, an egregious suppression that must  be described as Apartheid. Human Rights Watch:Discrimination on the basis of sex and gender is not included in the definition of discrimination in the UAE’s 2015 anti-discrimination law. Federal Law No. 28 of 2005 regulates personal status matters. Some of its provisions discriminate against women. For a woman to marry, her male guardian must conclude her marriage contract; men have the right to unilaterally divorce their wives, whereas a woman must apply for a court order to obtain a divorce; a woman can lose her right to maintenance if, for example, she refuses to have sexual relations with her husband without a lawful excuse; and women are required to “obey” their husbands. A woman may be considered disobedient, with few exceptions, if she decides to work without her husband’s consent. UAE law permits domestic violence. Article 53 of the penal code allows the imposition of “chastisement by a husband to his wife and the chastisement of minor children” so long as the assault does not exceed the limits of Islamic law. Marital rape is not a crime. In 2010, the Federal Supreme Court issued a ruling, citing the penal code, that sanctions husbands’ beating and infliction of other forms of punishment or coercion on their wives, provided they do not leave physical marks” [37].

The UAE Islamo-fascoid dictatorship has an appalling record of human rights abuse in relation to dissenters and migrant workers as well as being involved in the ongoing Yemeni Genocide and continuing devastation of starving Yemen in gross  violation of the Natural Law, Islamic Law and International Law. Thus Human Rights Watch: “The government continues to arbitrarily detain and forcibly disappear individuals who criticize authorities. The UAE maintains their leading role in the Saudi-led military coalition, which has conducted scores of unlawful attacks in Yemen. The UAE was implicated in detainee abuse at home and abroad. Labor abuses persist. Migrant construction workers face serious exploitation. The UAE introduced a domestic workers law providing them labor rights for the first time in September 2017, but some provisions are weaker than those provided to other workers under the labor law” [37].

There is something utterly awful about a rich, Arab and Muslim  country like the UAE being involved in the Western-imposed mass murder of fellow Arabs  and fellow Muslims. Thus the US- and hence Apartheid Israel-aligned UAE has played a key role  in the  following atrocities in the Muslim world (deaths from violence or imposed deprivation in brackets): (1) the 2011 onwards Libyan Genocide (0.2 million deaths, 2 million refugees; the UAE backs the French- and Egyptian- supported,  Benghazi-based Libyan National Army under General Khalifa Haftar in the ongoing civil war) [38, 39]; (2) the 2011 onwards Syrian Genocide (1.0 million deaths, 11 million refugees; the UAE initially opposed the Assad Government during the US-backed Syrian Civil War and had Kurdish and US involvements but in 2019  resumed diplomatic relations with the Syrian Government that were broken in 2011;  it is now actively assisting the Assad Government, much to US displeasure [41, 42]; (3) the 1990 onwards Iraqi Genocide (4.6 million deaths and 6 million refugees; UAE hosts US military bases involved in the ongoing Iraqi Genocide [43, 44]; the 1978 onwards Iranian Genocide (3 million deaths from the Iraq-Iran War and US sanctions; the UAE aligns with the US and Saudi Arabia against Iran) [43, 45]; and the 2015 onwards Yemeni Genocide (0.1 million deaths; the rich UAE continues to make illegal and genocidal war on impoverished starving Yemen) [43, 46]. The rich and Machiavellian UAE makes a significant contribution to the ongoing Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide involving 32 million Muslim deaths from violence (5 million) or from imposed deprivation (27 million) in 20 countries invaded by the US Alliance since the US Government’s 9/11 false flag atrocity that killed 3,000 people [47, 48].  UAE betrayal of the Palestinians is just a further  anti-Arab anti-Semitic crime of Apartheid UAE.

(4). Apartheid Saudi Arabia, gross suppression of females, maltreatment of  foreign workers,  Yemeni Genocide and Muslim Genocide.

Like the Apartheid UAE, the Apartheid Saudi Arabian Islamo-fascoid dictatorship grossly suppresses the rights of females who represent about 50% of the population, an egregious suppression that must be described as Apartheid. Human Rights Watch sets out the medieval conditions in Saudi Arabia in 2019:Saudi Arabia faced unprecedented international criticism in 2019 for its human rights record, including the failure to provide full accountability for the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents in October 2018, as well as the country’s dismal treatment of Saudi dissidents and human rights activists. Amid the criticism, Saudi authorities announced landmark reforms for Saudi women that, if fully implemented, represent a significant step forward including allowing Saudi women to obtain passports and travel abroad without the approval of a male relative for the first time. However, discrimination remains in other areas, and women’s rights activists remain detained, on trial, or silenced for their activism. Through 2019, the Saudi-led coalition continued a military campaign against the Houthi rebel group in Yemen that has included scores of unlawful airstrikes that have killed and wounded thousands of civilians… As the leader of the coalition that began military operations against Houthi forces in Yemen on March 26, 2015, Saudi Arabia has committed numerous violations of international humanitarian law… Saudi authorities in 2019 continued to repress dissidents, human rights activists, and independent clerics… Saudi Arabia applies Sharia (Islamic law) as its national law… [despite some changes] Saudi women still must obtain a male guardian’s approval to get married, leave prison, or obtain certain healthcare. Women also continue to face discrimination in relation to marriage, family, divorce, and decisions relating to children (e.g. child custody). Men can still file cases against daughters, wives, or female relatives under their guardianship for “disobedience,” which can lead to forcible return to their male guardian’s home or imprisonment. Women’s rights activists who fought for these important changes remain in jail or on trial for their peaceful advocacy…. Some migrant workers suffer abuses and exploitation, sometimes amounting to conditions of forced labor. The kafala (visa sponsorship) system ties migrant workers’ residency permits to “sponsoring” employers, whose written consent is required for workers to change employers or leave the country under normal circumstances. Some employers confiscate passports, withhold wages, and force migrants to work against their will” [49].

Like the UAE, a paradoxically anti-Arab anti-Semitic Saudi Arabia makes a significant contribution to the ongoing, US-imposed, post-9/11  Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide (deaths from violence or imposed deprivation in brackets) : (1) the 2011 onwards Libyan Genocide (0.2 million deaths, 2 million refugees; Saudi Arabia backs the eastern-based  Libyan National Army (LNA) forces led by Khalifa Haftar and supported by Russia, Egypt and the UAE in the ongoing civil war) [39, 43, 50]; (2) the 2011 onwards Syrian Genocide (1.0 million deaths, 11 million refugees; the Saudis were part of a coalition of US-linked nations (US, UK, France, Qatar, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Apartheid Israel) variously backing jihadis and others seeking to overthrow the Syrian Government; arms used by ISIS were supplied by the US and Saudi Arabia to Syrian opposition fighters and exceed those captured in battle [51]); the 1990 onwards Iraqi Genocide (4.6 million deaths and 6 million refugees; Saudi Arabia  US military bases are involved in the ongoing Iraqi Genocide [43, 44]; the 1978 onwards Iranian Genocide (3 million deaths from the Iraq-Iran War and US sanctions; Saudi Arabia  aligns with the US against Iran) [43, 45]; and the  2015 onwards Yemeni Genocide (0.1 million deaths; the Saudi-led coalition  continues to make illegal and genocidal war on impoverished and starving Yemen) [43, 46]. Saudi Arabia makes a major contribution to the ongoing Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide involving 32 million Muslim deaths from violence (5 million) or from imposed deprivation (27 million) in 20 countries invaded by the US Alliance since the US Government’s 9/11 false flag atrocity that killed 3,000 people [47, 48].  Will Saudi Arabia  also betray the Palestinians by following the example of the  UAE in officially recognizing Apartheid Israel in addition to its covert alliance with the anti-Arab anti-Semitic and Islamophobic rogue state?

Saudi Arabia has been the primary source for spreading Islamic fundamentalism throughout the world and for supporting violent jihadism, most notably its support for US-backed jihadism in Afghanistan post-1978 and thence elsewhere. Such variously state-backed jihadi non-state terrorism  has been of major  benefit to US imperialism (US state terrorism)  because every jihadi atrocity (especially against  European targets) provides  an “excuse” for disproportionately huge US Alliance attacks on Muslim countries. Thus the atrocities by the barbarous ISIS provided  the excuse  for US destruction of Mosul (40,000 killed, 600,000 displaced) and Fallujah (up to 6,000 killed, 370,000 displaced) with scores of  thousands ultimately dying from imposed deprivation [52-55]. The US  removed secular governments in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, and only Russian intervention prevented removal of the secular government in Syria [41].

Final comments.

Apartheid implies excluding a large section of a population from basic human rights on the basis of attributes such as race, religion or gender, and is exampled by the horrendous persecution of the Indigenous Palestinians who are over 50% of the Subjects of Apartheid Israel, the violent persecution of the Rohingyas in Apartheid Myanmar, and the outrageous, medieval and barbaric  treatment of women and girls in Apartheid UAE and Apartheid Saudi Arabia. When that exclusion means that a large part of  a persecuted population  are forced out of a country (as in Libya, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Somalia, and Afghanistan) then the Apartheid transmutes to genocide.   Such barbarities are utterly  unacceptable in the 21st century. What can decent people do? Decent people around the world must urge and apply Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel, Apartheid Myanmar, Apartheid  UAE and Apartheid Saudi Arabia, and against all people, politicians, parties, collectives, corporations and countries supporting these utterly detestable Apartheid states that are a foul blot on Humanity.
