Arab MK: Israel has many problems, but it is not an apartheid state

Meretz MK Issawi Frej, a left-wing Arab member of the ruling coalition, rejects Amnesty UK’s new report accusing Israel of being an apartheid state.

“Israel has many problems that must be solved, inside the Green Line and certainly in the occupied territories, but Israel is not an apartheid state,” he says.
