    Students had the tools to dominate their rivals

    Mar 09, 2016 1 Comment
    SAUJS’ well-planned and handsomely implemented awareness campaign ensured that they came out on top in this year’s IAW (Israel Awareness Week) vs IAW (Israel Apartheid Week) campaigns. The Israel-friendly students’ strategy hung on six tactical elements, each of which played its own part in ensuring that, what essentially boiled down to an online battle, came together with precision. Read all about it and SEE THE DAMNING VIDEO THAT WITS IS INVESTIGATING.

    Hindsight is 20/20 vision, they say but it is often fun looking at what is said prior to a sporting event and then what is said once the curtain has fallen - and reality has set in.

    “It is a glorious irony that International Women’s Day falls smack bang in the middle of Israel Apartheid Week” writes Rolene Marks (RoRo to her friends and SAJR readers) “which a pathetic excuse for anti-Israel activists to gather on university campuses around the world during different weeks in March every year and engage in some horrific Israel bashing.”

    Guerrilla warfare on web & in the trenches

    Mar 08, 2016 1 Comment
    IAW Day #1.5 – Monday morning to Tuesday mid-day has certainly seen fortune favouring the Jewish students – but it has been a hard-fought guerrilla battle, both online and on the ground, says SAUJS national chair Dani Hovsha. The tactics have been vicious but not violent and only one incident came close to blows on the UCT campus on Monday, Jewish Report understands. Last week was a different story, however, and BDS won the pre-event week with little shadow of doubt. Read what’s been going on…

    Thank you, BDS, for making us stronger

    Mar 08, 2016 3 Comments
    BEN SWARTZ (pictured) National Chairman of the South African Zionist Federation, writes a tongue-in-cheek letter thanking BDS for helping Israel and the world to promote the Zionist cause, and castigating them for what they are not helping to do. If you don't have a good laugh at this, you must be a member of BDS. But, whether you laugh or cry at what Ben has to say to BDS, you will come out on the other side of it far better informed about the anti-Israel lobby group's activities.

    Board slams ANC over support for IAW, BDS

    Mar 08, 2016 1 Comment
    The annual Israel Apartheid Week (IAW) kicked off with a shock endorsement by the ANC says the SAJBD’s national executive director Wendy Kahn. “Once again, ANC Deputy Secretary-General Jessie Duarte's obsessive hostility towards the State of Israel has seen her, on behalf of the ruling party, align herself with a movement that routinely promotes hatred not merely against Israel, but against the Jewish community in South Africa.” Read all about it and SEE SOME OF SAUJS' POSTERS...

    Bafana Modise, pictured in Israel, left SA hoping he and his 14 ranking ANCYL and BDS colleagues would come home alive from their SAIF-hosted Mideast educational visit last month. Now, he says, having seen the reality vs. the SA media portrayal they had faced, he would feel quite safe and comfortable to travel to Israel and/or the Palestinian territories alone. Ironically, the travellers went just weeks after President Zuma had called on ANC members for the first time not to travel to Israel. The problems are religious, said several of the party afterwards, not political

    Stand-off after 'BDS-inspired Wits subterfuge’

    Mar 02, 2016 1 Comment
    Prof Zeblon Vilakazi, acting-VC at Wits (pictured), asked Jewish Report on Wednesday to assure Jewish students that the university was doing its utmost to firmly deal with BDS’ illegal actions of beginning Israel Apartheid Week seven days early and thus illegally creating an ongoing stand-off with Wits' management. The question remains: will Wits walk the strong talk its offering and conveyed to the Jewish community?

    Mar 02, 2016 1 Comment
    Ninety-two-year old Shimon Peres is a living legend, and Johannesburg Jewry thronged to hear him speak at the Sandton Convention Centre on Sunday night.
