Israel: "colonialism, apartheid and ethnic cleansing"

That's what the man said, the man being Richard Falk, the UN's man in, well near, Palestine:
Israel declines to deal with Falk or even allow him into the country, accusing him of being biased.....

In his speech, Falk said he would like the Human Rights Council to ask the International Court of Justice to look at Israeli behavior in the occupied territories.

This should focus on whether the prolonged occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem had elements of "colonialism, apartheid and ethnic cleansing inconsistent with international humanitarian law," the investigator declared.
Only in the occupied territories? Perhaps he counts the whole shebang as occupied.
