Israel and the apartheid analogy Wikipedia

7 hours ago En.wikipedia.org Show details

1. In 1961, the South African prime minister and architect of South Africa's apartheid policies, Hendrik Verwoerd, dismissed an Israeli vote against South African apartheid at the United Nations, saying, "Israel is not consistent in its new anti-apartheid attitude ... they took Israel away from the Arabs after the Arabs lived there for a thousand years. In that, I agree with them. Israel, like South Africa, is an apartheid state." His successor John Vorster also maintained the same view. Since then, a number of sources have used the apartheid analogy. In the early 1970s, Arabic language magazines of the PLO and PFLP compared the Israeli proposals for Palestinian autonomy to the Bantustan strategy of South Africa. In 1979, the Palestinian sociologist Elia Zureik argued that while not de jure an apartheid state, Israeli society was characterized by a latent form of apartheid. The concept emerged with some frequency in both academic and activist writings in the 1980–90s, when Uri Davis, M...

Congress passed the Reconstruction Acts of 1867, ratified the Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1870 providing the right to vote, and enacted the Civil Rights Act of 1875forbidding racial segregation in accommodations. As a result, the presence of Federal occupation troops in the South assured blacks the right to vote and elect their own political leaders. The Reconstruction amendments asserted the supremacy of the national state and the formal equality under the law of...
2. The legitimacy of laws requiring segregation of blacks was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in the 1896 case of Plessy v. Ferguson, 163 U.S. 537. The Supreme Court sustained the constitutionality of a Louisiana statute that required railroad companies to provide "separate but equal" accommodations for white and black passengers, and prohibited whites and blacks from using railroad cars that were not assigned to their race. Plessy thus allowed segregation, which became standard throughout the...
