See this al Jazeera interview with Richard Falk. He says that the decision of Abbas's PA is so perverse it leaves the Palestinians bereft of representation and that NGOs and solidarity groups must step into the breach. He further claims that the global Palestine solidarity movement is the "sequel to the anti-apartheid campaign...that was so effective in finally undermining the legitimacy of the racist regime in Pretoria".
I notice that in referring to the struggle for Palestinian rights and his mention of "finally undermining the legitimacy of the racist regime in Pretoria" Richard Falk made no distinction between Israel and the occupied territories - but that's just me.
