CAIRO (News Desk) – Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi has termed Israel as a bastion of fascism and racial discrimination.

During a meeting of Arab League foreign ministers in Cairo to discuss a French-backed Middle East peace initiative, he rejected an Israeli offer for direct negotiations instead of the French multilateral peace initiative.

He blamed Israel for stalling the talks that could result in long-lasting peace in Middle East, blaming the Jewish state of dishonesty.

Negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians have been at a standstill since a US-led initiative collapsed in 2014.
