Palestinian politician slams Obama for withdrawing call for settlement freeze

Palestinian politician Mustafa Barghouti is criticizing Obama for saying a settlement freeze is not a precondition for talks.

Talking to the BBC, he says there should be an “immediate freeze of this cancer that is eating the two-state solution,” meaning the settlements.

He also says the current Israeli government is the “most racist and most extreme in the history of Israel.”
