The United Nations must restore the defunct resolution declaring that “Zionism is racism،” the Palestinian Authority said on Thursday، in response to Israel’s opening of an “apartheid road” in the West Bank outside of Jerusalem، AS THE Jerusalem Post said.
“To all those who are defending the state of occupation، it’s time to drop the claim that its the only democracy in the Middle East now that it has opened the apartheid road، which separates Israeli and Palestinian drivers،” PLO Executive Committee member Ahmed Majdalani said.

The road was designed to help improve Israeli and Palestinian traffic. Once it’s completed، it will facilitate traffic between the settlements in the Binyamin region and Jerusalem، and will allow for easy Palestinian travel between the major West Bank cities of Bethlehem and Ramallah. But a security barrier set up in the middle of the road separates vehicles traveling along the two traffic routes. The visual of the separate routes has caused the road’s opponents to dub it as the “apartheid road.” Majdalani said the time had come to restore the infamous UN General Assembly Resolution 3379 that was adopted in 1975، which determined that Zionism is a form of racism and of racial discrimination.
