Israel-Palestine: the issue is apartheid not peace

Robert Wintemute

I enjoyed the spotlight on Israel-Palestine in the recent ‘peace philanthropy’ issue (Alliance, June 2019). However, the references to a peace process are misconceived. The primary issue in the Israel-Palestine context is the struggle for equal rights, to end racial discrimination against ethnically Palestinian persons and in favour of ethnically Jewish persons. I never heard the phrase ‘the Southern African peace process’ during the apartheid regime in South Africa.
