South Africa’s Condemnation of Israeli Air Strikes on Gaza

The Media Review Network (MRN) and The Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) acknowledges Government’s condemnation of the latest air strikes by the Israeli defence force on the desperate and destitute people of Gaza.

This statement is a step in the right direction towards restoring the inalienable right of the Palestinian people to self determination and independence The severity of the seige imposed upon the Gazan people is such that mere political rhetoric and lip service cannot bring about the much needed relief to end the tragic unfolding of this humanitarian crisis of unimaginable proportions. In addition the illegal Zionist regime in occupied Palestine will be building another wall, this time along the border with Egypt, to ensure that no African illegal work or asylum seekers enter the Zionist entity. This is clearly discriminatory and racist.

We believe that it is time  the South African Government steps in line with the Tripartite Alliance, who have been supporting the campaign for boycotts, divestment and sanctions against the racist, illegal Zionist regime.

We sadly note the perilous position of the Palestinian people is rapidly deteriorating as a result of the inhuman siege imposed by the Occupying Force. Short of some decisive  action by the our Government, the dangers faced by the beleaguered Palestinians will be compounded beyond measure.
