Israeli Law Professors Compare Treatment of Palestinians to “Apartheid”

HeadlineMar 31, 2023

Israel’s Law Professors’ Forum, representing 120 prominent law professors, has joined human rights groups in comparing Israel’s treatment of Palestinians to the former apartheid government of South Africa. Earlier this week, the new head of Human Rights Watch, Tirana Hassan, urged the U.S. and other allies of Israel to help hold it accountable for its rights violations.

Tirana Hassan: “We say that this is not a human rights-compliant government. This is a government that’s actually on a rampage against human rights domestically against its own people in Israel, and they are pushing back.”
