A 🧵 of key takeaways from my @intifada analysis of the new @amnesty report on Israeli apartheid, with some additional thoughts sprinkled in… Israel has reacted to it “hysterically” (as one @Haaretz headline put it) in a way that it didn’t to similar reports by @HRW and @BTselem

When you can't refute the message, criminalize the messenger and smear them as terrorists Israel and its proxies and allies succeeded in the international criminalization of Palestinian political parties that rightly rejected the Oslo surrender and refused to accept Israel's colonial rule

Fauci treats Israel's failure to uphold its obligations under international law as a "political question."

The situation in Palestine only deteriorated during that time.
