Spanish Jewish federation blasts Catalan lawmakers over Israeli ‘apartheid’ label

The Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain condemns a recent decision by the Catalan parliament’s foreign affairs committee to accuse Israel of practicing “apartheid.”

In a statement, the federation “rejects and condemns” the resolution “in all its terms,” casting it as “destructive, biased and not at all representative of the recognized values of the people of Catalonia.”

The resolution “will not bring any benefit to the citizens,” the federation says, adding that it “expects public institutions to act with common sense, respecting the general interest and always supporting dialogue solutions.”
