Israeli Regime Worse than Apartheid

Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat says Israel has turned into a regime worse than South Africa before the collapse of apartheid.

"Never in the darkest hours of South African apartheid were the blacks prevented (from using) roads that whites were using," the official said, referring to measures taken by Israel to segregate Palestinian allegedly to secure Jewish settlers in the occupied Palestinian territory.

"If the occupation continues, there will be villages, towns in the West Bank, and refugee camps that will be within walls," Erekat said.

The senior Palestinian official pointed out that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had to choose between settlements or peace, and he had chosen settlements and settlers.

He added that Israel is doing its utmost to sabotage any peace agreement based on a two-state solution.

Erekat stressed the peace process was at a "dead end."

Israel has in recent months announced the construction of new housing units in al-Quds (Jerusalem), in breach of United Nations Security Council resolutions.
