Arab journalists in London have been criticised by a leading Israeli Arab activist for giving a distorted view of Israel.
Wafa Fahoum, who runs Israel’s oldest co-existence project, Bet Hagefen, spoke out after meeting the Muslim and Arab media in the capital last week.
She said: “One woman said, as though there were no debate, that there is apartheid in Israel. I was surprised. I told her that there was a big difference between fighting for equality and shared citizenship and apartheid. I want my rights, but it’s not apartheid.
