Judge takes ham­mer to Is­rael

Daily Dispatch - - News -

CON­STI­TU­TIONAL Court judge Edwin Cameron says the bar­ri­ers separat­ing Is­rael and Pales­tine are a vi­o­la­tion of in­ter­na­tional law.

He was re­fer­ring to the an­nex­a­tion of East Jerusalem‚ the Is­raeli set­tle­ments on oc­cu­pied Pales­tinian ter­ri­tory and the use of aquifers on the West Bank.

He made the re­marks as he de­liv­ered the Franz Auer­bach In­ter­faith Memo­rial Lec­ture at the Beit Emanuel Pro­gres­sive Syn­a­gogue in Park­town‚ Jo­han­nes­burg‚ on Wed­nes­day night. — Nico Gous
