Germany rejects Amnesty’s description of Israel as an apartheid state

“We reject expressions like apartheid or a one-sided focusing of criticism on Israel. That is not helpful to solving the conflict in the Middle East,” Reuters quotes Foreign Ministry spokesperson Christopher Burger as telling a news conference.
