The separation fence is “apartheid,” worse than what was experienced in South Africa

Salah Al-Khawaja, coordinator of the popular campaign for resistance to the fence and settlement:
 "The separation fence is not a security fence but rather a fence that is meant to create a regime of apartheid and racist separation in Palestine… Even one of the ministers in the South African government said that 'the fence which has been built in Palestine is a hundred times worse than what we [blacks] experienced and what we suffered in South Africa.'"
