Professor Ilan Pappé: Israel Has Chosen to be a “Racist Apartheid State” with U.S. Support

As the Palestinian death toll tops 2,000 in Gaza, we are joined from Haifa by Israeli professor and historian Ilan Pappé.

I think Israel in 2014 made a decision that it prefers to be a racist apartheid state and not a democracy,” Pappé says. (And the previous two pre-emptive wars on Gaza? Were they not as savage, brutal, ruin all infrastructures, including the UN and European installations?)

Israel still hopes that the United States will license this decision and provide it with the immunity to continue, with the necessary implication of such a policy vis-à-vis the Palestinians wherever they are.”

A professor of history and the director of the European Centre for Palestine Studies at the University of Exeter, Pappé is the author of several books, including most recently, “The Idea of Israel: A History of Power and Knowledge.”
