The Media Review Network (MRN), Ahmed Kathrada Foundation and the Palestinian Solidarity Alliance (PSA) take note of the recent posting of the statement by Belle’s Patisserie released on the 14th July 2014 regarding questions raised concerning links to the Israeli state.

We welcome their condemnation of the carnage taking place in this conflict that had been absent in previous statements. We acknowledge the swift clarification of the status of the business and their unequivocal distancing of themselves from the Israeli state. Furthermore, we welcome the clarification on their part:

“We state categorically and unequivocally that no funds whatsoever are contributed to the state or any organisations in Israel” directly or indirectly.

In light of the global as well as local outrage regarding the conflict, the clarifying statement posted by Belle’s Patisserie is welcomed as a move towards the global collective and sentiments.
