At a time when much of Africa is strengthening its ties with Israel, the racist and corrupt government of South Africa has chosen to downgrade its ties with Israel, at the behest of the terrorists in the Palestinian Authority.
However, this downgrade will not hurt the thriving and powerful Jewish state of Israel. On the contrary, this ill-advised and feckless decision will only hurt the people of South Africa.
South Africa has profound and serious challenges, with water shortages, drought, desertification of its land, security, IT, and health. These are all fields that Israel has a qualitative advantage in, which is why so many governments in the developing world are coming to Israel for help.
Who will the South African government turn to when their environmental issues become dire in the next 5 to 10 years? Mahmoud Abbas? Hamas? The people of South Africa will pay a significant price for their governments capitulation to the Palestinian Authority.
“South Africa downgrades embassy in Israel to liaison office,” by Tovah Lazaroff, Jerusalem Post, April 5, 2019:
South Africa has finished the first stage in the downgrade of its ties with Israel, the country’s Foreign Minister Lindiwe Sisulu said this week.
Last year, South Africa recalled its ambassador from Tel Aviv to protest Israel’s response to the Palestinian protestors along the Gaza border who were participating in the Hamas-led Great March of Return.
Sisulu later said that he would not be returning to Israel. But on Wednesday she clarified that he would not be replaced and that the status of the embassy had been changed.
“Our Ambassador is back in South Africa and we will not be replacing him. Our liaison office in Tel Aviv will have no political mandate, no trade mandate and no development cooperation mandate. It will not be responsible for trade and commercial activities.
