"The Human Rights Watch Report Charging Israel With the Crime of Apartheid" with Eric Goldstein

Are Israel’s policies over the West Bank and Gaza Strip war crimes? What are the implications of such an accusation? Do these policies come from Israel’s security concerns, or are they pretextual explanations for their repressive treatment over the Palestinian population?

Eric Goldstein, acting Executive Director of the Middle East and North Africa Division of Human Rights Watch, talks to RBI Director John Torpey about the latest HRW report that accuses Israel of crimes against humanity. He discusses what that means and how the determination was made, HRW’s efforts to stay impartial in their inherently political work, and what governments' responses to the report indicate for the future of Israel.
