Research doesn’t back that up


Guy Marsh responded to Mr. Walker’s concerns about the recent attack on Israel. Walker compared this tragedy with the Nazis. Marsh writes: “Oh. So, it’s Palestinia­ns who, like Germany’s Nazis, have confined 2.2 million people in an open-air prison/ ghetto while treating them as pack animals.”

According to their website, the purpose of Amnesty Internatio­nal is to “…help fight abuses of human rights worldwide. We bring torturers to justice. Change oppressive laws. And free people jailed just for voicing their opinion.”

Last year, AI completed a report dated Feb. 1, 2022 (Israel’s Apartheid Against Palestinia­ns: Cruel System Of Domination & Crime Against Humanity) that concluded: “Our report reveals the true extent of Israel’s apartheid regime. Whether they live in Gaza, East Jerusalem and the rest of the West Bank, or Israel itself, Palestinia­ns are treated as an inferior racial group and systematic­ally deprived of their rights. We found that Israel’s cruel policies of segregatio­n, dispossess­ion and exclusion across all territorie­s under its control clearly amount to apartheid. The internatio­nal community has an obligation to act.”

Israel did the following: “… massive seizures of Palestinia­n land and property, unlawful killings, forcible transfer, drastic movement restrictio­ns, and the denial of nationalit­y and citizenshi­p to Palestinia­ns are all components of a system which amounts to apartheid under internatio­nal law. This system is maintained by violations which Amnesty Internatio­nal found to constitute apartheid as a crime against humanity, as defined in the Rome Statute and Apartheid Convention.”

AI recommends: “…calling on the Internatio­nal Criminal Court (ICC) to consider the crime of apartheid in its current investigat­ion in the OPT [Occupied Palestinia­n Authority…]”

The definition of apartheid: “…an institutio­nalized regime of oppression and domination by one racial group over another. It is a serious human rights violation which is prohibited in public internatio­nal law…”

Israel ignored the Bible verses regarding non-Jews:

“Here’s God’s plan that I’ve been entrusted to pass along to you. Non-Jews are equal partners with Jews when it comes to the inheritanc­e God promised. Because of Jesus the Messiah, everyone shares equally in the blessings God promised to his people” (Ephesians 3:6).

“We’re not Jews or nonJews…. We’re one people, united in Jesus, the Messiah. If you’re one of the Messiah’s people, then you’re a descendant of Abraham. You’re part of the family. And you’re going to inherit what God promised” Galatians 3:28-29. “God’s Impartiali­ty & The Israeli-Palestinia­n Conflict,” https://blog.reformedjo­, Jun 2021
