Titled “Israeli Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid,” authors Richard Falk and Virginia Tilley discussed how Israel persecutes and dominates defenseless Palestinians.
Apartheid is a high crime against humanity, ongoing in Israel since its 1948 establishment, hardening over time, worst of all under Netanyahu’s coalition regime.
The authors state their “study was motivated by the desire to promote compliance with international human rights law, uphold and strengthen international criminal law, and ensure that the collective responsibilities of the United Nations and its Member States with regard to crimes against humanity are fulfilled.”
“More concretely, it aims to see the core commitments of the international community to upholding international law applied to the case of the Palestinian people, in defence of its rights under international law, including the right of self-determination.”
They minced no words, calling Israel a racist apartheid regime, presenting clear evidence proving their accusation “beyond a reasonable doubt” – based on the International Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid (the Apartheid Convention), saying:
“The term (applies to) policies and practices of racial segregation and discrimination as practiced in southern Africa…inhuman acts committed for the purpose of establishing and maintaining domination by one racial group of persons over any other racial group of persons and systematically oppressing them.”
The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court defines the “crime of apartheid” in similar terms. Israeli law “renders opposition to racial domination illegal” – 93% of land within “internationally recognized borders of Israel” is closed to ownership and development by non-Jews.
Jews worldwide may emigrate to Israel and become citizens, non-Jews denied the same right. Diaspora Palestinians are denied their legitimate right of return.
Israel controls Palestinians, by fragmentation and isolation, enforcing racial dominance of Jews over Arabs, “weaken(ing) (their) will and capacity…to mount a unified and effective resistance,” Palestinian puppet officials installed to enforce its will.
Since 1967, Palestinians have lived under four “domains,” the authors explained:
“1. Civil law, with special restrictions, governing Palestinians who live as citizens of Israel;
2. Permanent residency law governing Palestinians living in the city of Jerusalem;
3. Military law governing Palestinians, including those in refugee camps, living since 1967 under conditions of belligerent occupation in the West Bank and Gaza Strip;
4. Policy to preclude the return of Palestinians, whether refugees or exiles, living outside territory under Israel’s control.”
Arab citizens comprise about 20% of Israel’s population. They’re denied rights afforded Jews, treated like fifth column threats.
East Jerusalem residents, classified as permanent residents, experience “discrimination in access to education, health care, employment, residency and building rights. They also suffer from expulsions and home demolitions.”
“(T)hey have no legal standing to challenge Israeli (apartheid) law. “ Jerusalem is an international city under a UN protectorate. Israel usurped control, illegally claiming it as its exclusive capital.
Military law, “fully meet(ing) the definition of apartheid,” governs West Bank and Gaza residents. They face every imaginable human rights indignity and abuse – including relentless harassment, cold-blooded murder, and virtually every form of ill-treatment in-between.
Claiming a “demographic threat,” diaspora Palestinians are prohibited from returning to their homeland. Israeli society and laws assure dominance by Jews over Arab citizens and occupied Palestinians.
Overwhelming evidence proves Israeli apartheid rule is a high crime against humanity.
The UN, its agencies and member states “have a legal obligation to act within the limits of their capabilities to prevent and punish instances of apartheid that are responsibly brought to their attention,” the authors stressed.
“More specifically, States have a collective duty: (a) not to recognize an apartheid regime as lawful; (b) not to aid or assist a State in maintaining an apartheid regime; and (c) to cooperate with the United Nations and other States in bringing apartheid regimes to an end.” – See more at: http://www.rense.com/general96/UNrepISRapartheid.htm#sthash.T5fdEWXl.dpuf

He will also judge them at the second death through the Law of Moses. For if they truly believed the words of Moses they would have also believed in Christ; Moses, the old law and the prophets all spoke of Christ (John 5:42-47; Rev 20:6).
Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the (great) whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
Throughout her history, Jerusalem went through many sorrows and ruins. As Israel after the flesh was put away, so to was Jerusalem finally declared desolate by Christ (Mat 23:37-39).
The Sons of God are now the Temple of God, and Christ dwells within those that are Baptized in the Holy Spirit (2 Cor 6:16). Up until the end of this age, Desolations are determined on Jerusalem, especially during the reign of the Beast during the Great Tribulation (Dan 9:26-27; Isa 6:11; Jer 7:1-17; Jer 7:29-34; Jer 9:5-10; Jer 19:1-8; Joel 2:1-11).
Ezek 16:39 And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare.
Ezek 16:46-47 And thine elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell at thy left hand: and thy younger sister, that dwelleth at thy right hand, is Sodom and her daughters. Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways.
The Identity Of The Great Whore Is Revealed by looking at her sister, there were two women, and they were the daughters of one mother (Ezek 23:2). Samaria, was the capital of the northern kingdom of Israel.
Ezek 23:4 And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.
Jerusalem and Samaria both had the same mother, Samaria was Jerusalem’s older sister, and Sodom was the younger sister. Sodom was destroyed by fire. This fate was also in Jerusalem’s destiny, as she was more corrupt in her whoredoms than Samaria (Ezek 23:11).
During the final 3 1/2 years of Jerusalem’s existence, before Christ returns, she is spiritually compared to Sodom and Egypt (Rev 11:8).
But even before this time period where the Beast controls Jerusalem, there is nothing to suggest any type of relationship with the Lord God.
Isaiah 1:21-22 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
In Isaiah’s prophecy Jerusalem will be burned with fire and be desolate. Except for a remnant, it is likened unto Sodom and Gomorrah (Isa 1:7-9).
Jer 23:3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
Jer 23:5-6 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
The gathering of God’s people unto a Holy Jerusalem, through Christ, has yet to transpire.
Jer 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
Jerusalem is full of evil, deceit and iniquity.
The Lord will visit them for these great sins they commit (Jer 9:1-10).
Jerusalem shall be heaps and a dwelling place for dragons (Jer 9:11).
Babylon shall be heaps and a dwelling place for dragons…(Jer 51:37).
The cities of Judah will be desolate and a den of dragons (Jer 10:22).
Jer 23:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.
Jer 9:14-16 But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them: Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink. I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them.
Rev 16:4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
The third Vial judgment in the book of Revelations, refers to the plague called wormwood.
Rev 8:10-11 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
The third Trumpet judgment in the book of Revelations, also refers to the plague called wormwood.
Ezek 22:2 Now, thou son of man, wilt thou judge, wilt thou judge the bloody city? yea, thou shalt shew her all her abominations.
Ezek 22:11-12 And one hath committed abomination with his neighbour’s wife; and another hath lewdly defiled his daughter in law; and another in thee hath humbled his sister, his father’s daughter. In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord GOD.
Here the great whore is not only involved in spiritual lewdness, but physical fornication and even incest.
Ezek 22:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye are all become dross, behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem.
Ezek 22:21 Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof.
Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
The Identity Of The Great Whore Is Revealed through observing how she interacts with those around her. Her leaders are like unto wolves that devour their prey. These people use oppression on the poor and those in need, and they are without compassion. They take what is not rightfully theirs, and with great cruelty trample down those around them unnecessarily. They are also quick to shed blood and love dishonest gain which is covetousness. They are guilty of breaking all of the commandments of Moses and worthy of God’s wrath (Ezek 22:24-30).
Is not Ezekiel chapter 22, a description of the modern day nation of Israel?
Ezek 22:31 Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.
Pour out my indignation and consume with the fire of my wrath, may be a better translation of the message in Ezek 22:31. The words therefore, and have I, are added, and suggest that this wrath has already been performed.
In Ezekiel 22:19, it is the Lord, Jesus (Adonai) that gathers the dross or impure in the midst of Jerusalem. This word dross is only used eight times in the Old Testament. Two of those references are in Isaiah chapter one, (which describes a future event), and three times the word is used in Ezekiel chapter 22.
The Hexagram is not the Star of David, this symbol may or may not be unto the Beast, but it does represent an image of a star of the heavens. The Hebrews were commanded not to make any graven images of anything on earth or in Heaven. The pentagram and hexagram are both images unto pagan deities. Because of their idolatry and the worship of the star of their god, the people were taken into captivity (Amos 5:25-27).
In light of all of these facts, the Identity of The Great Whore Is Revealed by the choice to use this Satanic symbol on a flag representing the nation of Israel, birthed through the great deception of the Whore. This satanic symbol that was adopted by the first Zionist congress in 1897 was not coincidental.
Ex 20:3-4 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
There is no mention in the Bible of King David ever adopting a star or the hexagram as a symbol of the nation he ruled, so this theory is just another lie.
Solomon, unlike his father David, became very wicked as he turned towards idolatry towards the end of his reign. Through his many wives he went after many strange gods, and he even built an alter unto Molech, in or near Jerusalem (1 Kings 11:7).
There are two Bible verses that do mention both the words Molech, and star of your god. The first reference to this star goes back to a time that Israel spent in the wilderness, that was well before Solomon’s reign, and may well have been an image to a god adopted from their time in Egypt.
Amos 5:25-27 Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel? But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.
Solomon did marry pharaoh’s daughter, and also took many other wives, and went after their gods. So this hexagram symbol may have been an image to a god, but it has absolutely nothing to do with the true Israel of God.
Acts 7:42-43 Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness? Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.
The fact that mystery Israel would adopt this symbol, which has pagan roots is disturbing to say the least. This nation is not of the Lord Jesus, nor is she gathered together by Him. The true Israel of God will not return to Jerusalem, until it is thoroughly cleansed and restored by and through Christ.
Israel is Given a Bill of Divorce, and Christ Declared the House of Judah Desolate.
Jer 3:6-8 The LORD said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the whore. And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it. And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the whore also
The word backsliding is used twelve times in the Old Testament, all in reference to Israel or Judah. Here it refers to turning away from that which is Holy.
Israel that played the whore was put away for Her harlotry. Her sister, the treacherous Judah, saw it and was even more traitorous towards the Lord, and became known as the great whore (Jer 3:11).
Jer 13:9-10 Thus saith the LORD, After this manner will I mar the pride of Judah, and the great pride of Jerusalem. This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.
The Identity of The Great Whore Is Revealed through the prophets describing her judgments, both in the past and in the future.
Jeremiah prophesizes that Jerusalem and the false tribe of Judah will be discarded and be considered good for nothing. He sees spiritual drunkenness and gross darkness, and because of their lewdness of their idolatry, destruction.
Luke 13:34-35 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
A final Woe is given to a filthy, oppressing and polluted city. At the end of this age, the Lord will gather all nations and kingdoms into Jerusalem. There He will pour upon them…
