Finnish FM: Israel's occupation of West Bank – like apartheid
Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja said Wednesday that Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories is tantamount to apartheid, warning that time was running out for a two-state solution.

 

"If you are occupying areas inhabited by... Palestinians who do not have the same rights as the Israelis in Israel, that is apartheid and that is not sustainable," he told reporters. "I think that the majority in Israel has also realized this but they have been unable to provide a leadership that (can) move forward on the two-state solution," he added. (AFP)
