Friday: Screening of 'Roadmap to Apartheid' at Maynard Avenue UMC

After Secretary of State John Kerry drew fire for saying that Israel risks becoming "an apartheid state," he quickly backpedaled on his use of the term. But as the film Roadmap to Apartheid demonstrates, that ship has already sailed.

The 2012 documentary by Ana Nogueira (a white South African) and Eron Davidson (a Jewish American-Israeli) explores in depth the parallels between the South African and Israeli systems of apartheid.

On Friday, May 23 at 7 p.m. the Maynard United Methodist Church, 2350 Indianola Avenue is offering a free screening of Roadmap to Apartheid. All are welcome. For more information, contact cmhammond11@att.net.

"Roadmap To Apartheid is very powerful and compelling, and the visuals of house demolitions are appalling," said Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

"Religion is repeatedly misused by politicians," Tutu said. "Yet one of the lessons of Jewish history is that God is always on the side of the oppressed. Another is that those who dehumanize others, dehumanize themselves. Israelis will pay a heavy price for their callous mistreatment of Palestinians."
