Israel Apartheid Week Founder: It’s Just Propaganda

Israel Apartheid Week’s just propaganda, but don’t take my word for it. Here’s IAW’s co-founder, Judy Rebick, in her own words:

Key snippet:

There is the brilliance, the propaganda brilliance, of calling Israel an Apartheid state. Because every time these people put a motion through Parliament and through the legislature or try to shut you down in other ways, they have to say Israel isn’t an Apartheid state. They have to say it’s hate talk to say Israel is an Apartheid state. . . .

So over time it really is a brilliant propaganda tactic, because each time it becomes more familiar. Something that is forbidden by the mainstream becomes a familiar phrase.

Now you know.
