The last president of South Africa to serve before the end of the Apartheid regime there, F.W. de Klerk, has come out in opposition to the growing boycott Israel movement. he did so during an interview with Israeli radio.

The former South African leader also rejected comparisons to Apartheid and said, “I’m not saying it’s the right solution for Israel, but there will come in Israel a turning point where if the main obstacles of the moment which exist for a successful two-state solution are not removed, the two-state solution will become impossible.”

“So, as an outsider I would say, believing that a two-state solution might be the best one, you’ll have to move fast, see the window of opportunity, jump through it — it might close.”

He also pointed out that sanctions against South Africa backfired and ended up costing many Blacks there jobs.
