    Confirming Evidence that Israeli Regime is in-fact an Apartheid Regime

    “Israel’s Refusal to Test Its Arab Population for COVID-19 Is a Ticking Time-Bomb” – Dr. Nihaya Daoud, Haaretz

    Israel is not treating its citizens as equal but rather privilege based on race. But using privilege to also test for COVID-19: a basic right and need during this global health crisis is a grave breach of humanity and a clear ‘inhuman act’ of an apartheid regime.
