About That Word Apartheid

Issue: 2007, Volume 40, Issue 2
Subject: Apartheid|South Africa
Author: Various Authors
Issue Description: President Carter’s book “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid”unleashed a firestorm of controversy. To suggest that white, racist South Africa’s treatment of its indigenous inhabitants is in any way similar to Israel’s treatment of its indigenous inhabitants, for some, smacks of anti-Semitism. And yet, a Google search of “Israel + Apartheid”brings up 5.5 million references. To help clarify the relationship between Israel and apartheid South Africa, John Mahoney, Jane Adas and Robert Norberg put together a timeline, beginning with June 1917, when Dr. Chaim Weizmann and Gen. Jan Christian Smuts met in London to lobby for their respective causes.

Witness for the Defenseless

Issue: 2007, Volume 40, Issue 3
Subject: Human Rights|West Bank/Gaza|Zionism
Author: Baltzer, Anna
Issue Description: Anna Baltzer writes that it was on a trip to southern Lebanon where, for the first time, “I heard a narrative about the state of Israel altogether different from the one I had learned growing up as a Jewish American.”To see the situation for herself, she traveled to Palestine in late 2003 as a volunteer with the International Women’s Peace Service (IWPS), a grassroots solidarity organization dedicated to documenting and nonviolently intervening in human rights abuses in the West Bank. “In spite of my research,”she continues, “nothing could have prepared me for witnessing firsthand the injustices that characterize Israeli rule in the West Bank, including the expansion of Jewish-only colonies on Palestinian land, the virtually unchecked brutality of soldiers and settlers against Palestinian civilians, and Israel’s Apartheid Wall, separating hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their land, jobs, hospitals, schools, and each other.”

Avraham Burg: Apostate or Avatar?

Issue: 2007, Volume 40, Issue 4
Subject: History|Zionism
Author: Mahoney, John F.
Issue Description: Avraham Burg is the author of a new book, “Defeating Hitler,”and the subject of a July 30, 2007 New Yorker Magazine profile. In these publications Burg announces the end of the Zionist enterprise. Want to know, he asks fellow Israelis, why Palestinians blow themselves up in our restaurants? Look at how we treat them. Think our dependence on U.S. dollars and weapons is good? Think again. Want to keep a Jewish majority in our country? No problem. Expel the Arabs or wall them up into Bantustans. These pronouncements have triggered condemnation all across the Israeli political spectrum and have stirred controversy in the American-Jewish media. While his critique represents something new, this Link issue quotes similar viewpoints expressed through the years by other Jews, Israeli and American.

Collateral Damage

Issue: 2007, Volume 40, Issue 5
Subject: Iraq|Jordan|Refugees|War/Conflict
Author: Kelly, Kathy
Issue Description: It has been said that the murder of one person is a tragedy, while that of millions of persons is a sanitation problem. So, too, the uprooting of one family can be grasped as a particular calamity, while that of thousands of families is seen as a logistical challenge. This Link puts a human face on the million-plus Iraqis who have had to flee their homeland in fear of their lives.

Subject: Education
Author: Scott, Joan W.
Issue Description: In 2001, shortly after the terrorist attacks on the trade towers in New York, the American Association of University Professors set up a special committee to report on Academic Freedom in a Time of National Emergency. Joan W. Scott, professor of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, N.J., was a member of that committee and, at the time, chair of A.A.U.P.’s committee on academic freedom and tenure. The author describes the “well-organized lobby that, on campus and
off, has been systematically attacking Middle East studies programs under various guises”in an effort to limit expression on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to pro-occupation viewpoints.

For Charlie

Issue: 2006, Volume 39, Issue 4
Subject: Children
Author: Lubin, Barbara
Issue Description: Barbara Lubin, a Jewish-American activist, begins her Link with these words: “Israel’s recent invasion of Lebanon brought back painful memories to me of its 1982 invasion for more reasons than one. While Israel’s actions in 2006 were similar to 1982— widespread bombing of civilians and civilian infrastructure, the destruction of entire neighborhoods, and the indiscriminate killing of women and children— my reactions then and now were very different. These opposite reactions tell the story of who I was and who I have become.”
