The intent of Israel’s policies toward Palestinians is often described in Hebrew as hafrada ("separation"), a word that is strikingly similar in meaning to the Afrikaans word apartheid ("separateness" or literally "apart-hood").
These visuals illustrate five parallels between the state policies of apartheid-era South Africa and those of the present day Israeli regime towards Palestinians: 1. land expropriation, 2. racial classification, 3. mass displacement, 4. violent repression, and 5. token independence.
