Israeli-Apartheid Week

Masango S

As we observe the Israeli-Apartheid Week campaign, the ANC remains deeply concerned about the current wanton destruction of homes, schools, clinics and the infrastructure of the indigenous Palestinians in the occupied areas of Wesbank, Gaza and others.

This continuous denial of human rights, the restrictive checkpoints and the merciless shooting of the youth by the Israeli police and soldiers is reminiscent of the old Apartheid South Africa.

As of last year, almost 700 000 Jewish nationals were resettled in the Palestinian territories, thus making the two-state solution unworkable, this happens in full glare of the United Nations Security Council.

What a Shame!!
