"The question is not 'Is Israel the same as South Africa?' It is 'do Israel's actions meet the international definition of what apartheid is?' The crime of apartheid is defined by the 2002 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court as inhumane acts of a character similar to other crimes against humanity 'committed in the context of an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups and committed with the intention of maintaining that regime.'" A couple of other relevant questions include did Israel sign the 2002 Rome Statute, if not;why not, and does it even matter? Is Israel an Apartheid State?
