Yes. Say it again. and Again. and Again.
And remember who is saying it.
The elected president of the United Nations General Assembly. Father Miguel d’Escoto.
At international conferences he – not the secretary-general – represents the UN’s 192 member states.
The UN General Assembly president ranks higher than the secretary-general in the UN totem pole.
He said: “What is being done to the Palestinian people seems to me to be a version of the hideous policy of apartheid.” Addressing the Assembly last week, d’Escoto pointed out that it has been 60 years since some 800,000 Palestinians were driven out of their homes and property, becoming refugees and an uprooted and marginalised people.
Apartheid. and Occupation.
Those are the issues.
