Pompeo in Israel: Three announcements that cement 'apartheid'

With just two months left before the Biden administration takes office, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made a slew of announcements on Thursday that blur the line between the state of Israel and the Palestinian territories that it occupies.

After a visit to an illegal West Bank settlement, the top US diplomat issued a directive to identify organisations that boycott companies doing "business in Israel or in any territory controlled by Israel".

He said the State Department would ensure that no government funds went to such groups - a move that would disadvantage NGOs that do not operate in the settlements, in accordance with international law.

In a separate decree, Pompeo said exported products from parts of the occupied West Bank must be labelled as 'Made in Israel'.
