Robert De Niro on Palestinian-Israeli conflict

Is the state of Israel an apartheid state?  Robert De Niro acknowledges that fact:

“My name is Robert De Niro and I acknowledge that apartheid exists.”  De Niro is talking about the state of Israel.  He adds:  “If you were bitten by a mad dog, who will you blame? the dog or its owner?  Definitely the owner, so, all the blame is on the USA government’s shoulder for adopting and supporting a state like Israel.”

It may take time, but the truth will eventually prevail.  De Niro’s humanity is making him speak out and others will follow.  Israel’s apartheid practices against the Palestinians are being recorded by history.  One day, sooner or later, all of humanity will stand up for Israel and force it to end apartheid practices against Palestinians.

      Mr. De Niro was reported to have said: “All the blame is on the USA government’s shoulders for adopting and supporting a state like Israel.” That statement stands, it has not been denied, and its meaning is clear. Therefore, the post continues!

  4. And therefore he’s a world leading expert on land rights, geopolitics and an international lawyer. He’s just an actor with an opinion. The word “FACT” is in itself a misnomer and an accusation without basis. Like forgetting to say Alleged before a conviction of a criminals crime. Facts are just that, the pieces of what are there for all to see. Not the Judgement. Call it as it is not what you think. Otherwise it’s just an opinion. And from De Niro…. it is JUST that.

    • Alcanaanite says:

      De Niro’s opinion that the state of Israel is an apartheid state is one that happens to be shared by President Jimmy Carter, the late Nelson Mandela, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, just to name three prominent experts on the FACTS of apartheid and the structure of the state of Israel.

      The matter is not complicated. The facts can be clearly discovered in the answers to three simple questions:
      First: Do all citizens of the state of Israel enjoy the same rights and privileges regardless of their religion or ethnicity? The answer is: No; under Israeli law, Jewish citizens enjoy more rights and privileges than non-Jewish citizens do.
      Second: Can non-Jews, whether citizens of the state of Israel or not, live in Jewish-only settlements built in the occupied Palestinian West Bank? The answer is: No; under Israeli law, only Jews (whether citizens or otherwise) can live in those Jewish-only settlements.
      Third: Do non-citizens of the state of Israel – whether they are Jews or non-Jews – have the same rights and obligations and are subject to same laws, especially the Law of Return? The answer is: No; under Israeli law, Jews who are not citizens of the state of Israel are treated far more favourably than non-Jews, and under the Law of Return only Jewish non-citizens can automatically become citizens of the state of Israel upon request.

      When citizens of a state, people living under the control of such state, and non-citizens of such state are treated differently based on their religious affiliation or ethnicity, such state is practicing an apartheid system of government that separates and discriminates among individuals based on their religion or ethnicity. That is precisely what the state of Israel does, and that is apartheid. Accordingly, De Niro’s opinion is confirmed in FACT.

    He’s now changed his mind. He’s opening a Restaurant and Hotel in #ApartheidIsrael.
    He’s got a short memory.
    Shame on him. #FallenHeroes

    • Alcanaanite says:

      If he did, it would be a shame. However, such “business decision” does not change the fact that his words about Israeli Apartheid continue to be true.
