Prominent Israeli Author: Apartheid more befitting term for "Israel"
The famous writer suggested that the West Bank under "Israel's" rule should no longer be referred to as occupation, but rather apartheid.
David Grossman, an Israeli author, suggested that "Israel's" occupation of parts of the West Bank should no longer be identified as occupation, detailing that a much harsher word is needed.
Grossman said to Israeli Army Radio that Apartheid is a more appropriate term.
The author described that occupation PM Naftali Bennett's government could not "cure 'Israel' of the sick evil that is the occupation."
This is not the first time the writer used this word to describe the crimes of "Israel."
Grossman divulged that “When 'Israel' occupies and oppresses another nation... and creates an apartheid reality in the occupied territories — it becomes a lot less of a home."
It seems that voices from within criticizing "Israel" are becoming more prevalent.
Last month, "Israel's" education minister stopped a professor from receiving an award due to his support of boycotts against the occupation.
The BDS movement is a nonviolent campaign against Israeli abuses against Palestinians. BDS stands for "boycotts, divestment, and sanctions" against "Israel".
The movement prides itself in being a “movement that works to end international support for Israel's oppression of Palestinians and pressure it to comply with international law.”
The Palestinian-led movement has for years urged artists to boycott "Israel" for its inhuman actions against Palestinians. Major performers, such as Lorde and Lana Del Ray have canceled appearances in solidarity with the Palestinian people and the apartheid violence they are subjected to.
Authors under attack
A week ago, some 70 prominent authors, poets, and playwrights have signed a letter of endorsement in support of Irish author Sally Rooney's decision to prevent Israeli publishing house "Modan" from translating her latest work, "Beautiful World, Where Are You," into Hebrew.
Rooney indicated that her decision is part of a cultural boycott over Israel's treatment of Palestinians.
