The Israeli regime will collapse like the apartheid regime in South Africa as oppression will not last long, says a political commentator.

 “They (Zionists) are going to ... manage the Gaza and the West Bank exactly like the apartheid [regime] in South Africa and will collapse one day,” John Phoenix said.

“It is not going to be long before the collapse [of the Israeli regime], because that’s not going work for a long time,” to commit crime and get away with others’ support, Phoenix told Press TV on Wednesday.  

While Palestinians are living in two tiny sections of their historic homeland surrounded by fascist settlers, “there is no room for so-called two states,” the activist said.

“There will be no such thing called two states” because Israeli Prime Minister is seeking to put pressure on the Palestinian people and create a so-called Jewish state, "which in fact means a Zionist state," he added.

“The Zionist dream is to have a so-called pure Jewish state, which is a racist regime,” Phoenix noted.

Elsewhere in his comments the analyst criticized the United States’ pro-Israeli policies, noting that “American foreign policy is one-sided since the creation of ... Israel.”

The US is unlikely to be fair to the Palestinians, he emphasized.

US President Donald Trump has been more honest than his predecessors in dealing with the Palestinian cause, because the new president has frankly said he supports Israel’s settlement activities, Phoenix noted, slamming former US President Barack Obama for letting Tel Aviv defy international calls for stopping settlement activities.

Israeli settlements built in the occupied Palestinian territories are considered illegal under the international law and are seen as the main obstacle to the so-called peace talks between Tel Aviv and the Palestinian Authority.
