JNS.org – Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki on Tuesday called on all nations of the world to deny entry to Israeli settlers, comments that Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon described as “pure antisemitism.”

“The international community must not deal directly or indirectly with the occupation system,” Maliki told the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

Maliki said that all nations of the world “must not allow the entry of illegal settlers.” He then called on the international community to “boycott the settlements and the products of settlements and threaten to impose economic sanctions on the occupying entity.” Maliki also urged the UN Security Council to pass a resolution condemning Israeli settlements, saying the resolution should be based on “the international community’s consensus on the illegal nature [of the settlements].”
