    UPDATE: S/Times backtracks, will run ad

    Nov 02, 2015 11 Comments
    UPDATED STORY: Last week the Sunday Times refused to publish a full-page advert that had been bought by Jewish communal groups – leading to a communal email being issued on Saturday night, subject lined: “This is what the Sunday Times did not want SA to know about Hamas!” The mailer said that “on Friday afternoon at 3pm the Sunday Times pulled the advert.” This morning (Tuesday) a spokesman for the communal groups told JR that TMG (owners of the Times) had informed them that the ad will run next weekend – but, apparently, without the picture.

    Ruling party gets very chummy with Hamas

    Oct 26, 2015 8 Comments
    HAMAS INVITED TO OPEN SHOP IN SA: Who will foot the bill? Khaled Meshaal and other senior members of Hamas have met with Pres Jacob Zuma to discuss opening offices in SA. For the ANC to welcome Hamas to SA "is a moral outrage, and disgraces the memory of Nelson Mandela,” said Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein, Ambassador Arthur Lenk said Hamas was the only one to blame for the Israeli-Palestinian stand-off. Israelis, he said, were "not going into streets around Jerusalem with knives looking to attack people", he said, reminding South Africans that "Israel is a democracy". Read on...

He submitted this blog, first published on Times of Israel this week, warning that the ANC government has reached a new low by hosting a delegation of Hamas.

    Hamas in SA – not just a Jewish problem

    Oct 22, 2015 7 Comments
    Last Sunday the ANC told SA that Hamas had come calling. “Clearly having anticipated the reaction to the visit,” writes HOWARD FELDMAN, the government chose to keep from its citizens. Zuma met Mashal before anyone had time to object. “The clandestine nature of the visit in (and) of itself is enormously telling and one that ought to be noted, along with the very nature of Hamas itself.” Says Howard: "The ANC, it seems, has no idea who they are dealing with."
