Event Description

Over recent years, there have been claims by various politicians, organizations, and movements claiming that Israel is an apartheid state.

In this event, Arabs & South Africans explore the veracity of these claims against the Jewish State, and get to the bottom of whether BDS activists like Rashida Talib, Ilhan Omar, AOC, and Pramila Jayapal are correct in their assertions that Israel is a racist apartheid state, or is France, whose parliament formally declared that Israel is not an apartheid state correct?

Is it okay to call Jews "Nazis, terrorists, and colonizers," or does it cross a line that makes it antisemitic hate speech? Is the term "apartheid" cultural appropriation that diminishes the life experiences of people who grew up in apartheid South Africa, or is it an appropriate term to describe the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?

Join us, as we explore these questions, and others to determine once and for all... Is the apartheid accusation against Israel justified, or is it a new form of antisemitism?
