    Le récent rapport d’Amnesty International (AI) accusant Israël de pratiquer l’apartheid a frappé l’opinion publique du monde entier. La raison en est que cette organisation de 10 millions de membres est connue pour son sérieux et sa prudence, et que ce rapport est le résultat de quatre années d’enquête. Outre AI, bien d’autres organisations ont dénoncé les crimes d’apartheid et de persécution de l’État d’Israël envers la population palestinienne...

    "(The Rapporteur) concluded that the political system of entrenched rule in the occupied Palestinian territory satisfied the prevailing evidentiary standard for the existence of apartheid. First, an institutionalised regime of systematic racial oppression and discrimination has been established. Second, this system of alien rule had been established with the intent to maintain the domination of one racial-national-ethnic group over another. And third, the imposition of this system of institutionalised discrimination with the intent of permanent domination had been built upon the regular practice of inhuman(e) acts. This was apartheid. With the eyes of the international community wide open, Israel had imposed upon Palestine an apartheid reality in a post-apartheid world."

The investigation details how Israel enforces a system of oppression and domination against the Palestinian people wherever it has control over their rights. This includes Palestinians living in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), as well as displaced refugees in other countries.

    The EU and its Member States must acknowledge this fact and comply with their responsibilities. The term "apartheid", which first referred to the situation in South Africa at one period in its history, is an internationally defined legal concept, which has become independent from that historical situation. The International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid (Apartheid Convention), which entered into force in 1976, defines apartheid as a crime against humanity consisting of “inhuman acts committed for the purpose of establishing and maintaining domination by one racial group of persons over any other racial group of persons and systematically oppressing them.”

Parmi les signataires figurent de nombreuses personnalités éminentes.

    That Israeli authorities are committing the crime against humanity of apartheid today is a matter of growing consensus within the global human rights movement and, increasingly, beyond it. The report by the Special Rapporteur for the Human Rights Situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, Michael Lynk, reinforces findings by leading Palestinian, Israeli and international human rights groups. Groups have independently gathered evidence over many months, evaluated case studies, government policies and statements, applied the law and determined that apartheid is the reality for millions of Palestinians.
