In summary, this analysis shows that Israel was established by the Zionist movement over 60 years ago with the intention and effect of achieving the permanent removal en masse of the indigenous, predominantly Arab population of Palestine for the purpose of Jewish colonization and development of a "Jewish state." This amounts to a policy of population transfer (ethnic cleansing) which is defined as the "systematic, coercive and deliberate" movement of population into or out of an area " with the effect or purpose of altering the demographic composition of a territory, particularly when that ideology or policy asserts the dominance of a certain group over another." The widespread and systematic manner in which Israel has since violated international human rights and humanitarian law and defied UN resolutions, as well as the manner in which Israel has institutionalized its policy of population transfer -- through discriminatory martial and civil law and administrative mechanisms -- supports the conclusion that Israel's current regime over the Palestinian people should be characterized as a system combining apartheid, occupation and colonialism. And  Apartheid refers to a social system that separates and discriminates against people based on race or ethnicity when that system is institutionalized by laws or decrees. The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court defines apartheid as acts "committed in the context of an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups and committed with the intention of maintaining that regime".
