It is certainly in the best choice for their teens.

    SA-Israel relations survive dire jeopardy

    Oct 27, 2016 4 Comments
    In what one senior opposition MP calls a “pre-planned stealth operation” by the ANC (as a political party) and their anti-Israel lobbyist cohorts, aimed at forcing the ANC Executive’s (the Cabinet) hand to break ties with Israel, a specially-convened meeting was to have taken place at the Parliamentary precinct on Wednesday, mini-budget day, the day after Succot ended. One of the many friends of Israel got wind of it and the matter was hastily dealt with and the meeting never took place.

    Oct 27, 2016 1 Comment
    If the latest draft resolution at Unesco on “Occupied Palestine” succeeded in the Palestinians' aims to reclaim the world's attention, then it was a Pyrrhic victory at best and a setback at worst. Part of an effort on Jerusalem initiated at Unesco in 2015 by the Palestinian Authority, the October 12 vote saw a comfortable majority of states, including Russia and China, pass language calling on Israel "to cease the persistent excavations and works in East Jerusalem, particularly in and around the Old City”, as one clause reads.

    Anti-Israel groups try to remove top ambassador

    Oct 26, 2016 Go comment!
    BAYING FOR BLOOD: SA Ambassador to Israel Sisa Ngombane (pictured), made a contextual - and rather innocuous - remark about three young Israeli boys killed by Hamas in 2014 and so incensed anti-Israel groups in South Africa, that they are baying for his blood. His head may yet roll - however unfairly, as he seems to have walked into what increasingly looks to have been a carefully laid trap...

    Unesco bill may not be put to vote Tuesday

    Last Friday, the chairman of Unesco’s executive board tried to put a damper on a controversial Thursday vote that seemed to reject Jewish ties to Jerusalem. “We need more time and dialogue between the members of the board to reach a consensus,” Michael Worbs told the French news agency AFP. This after the massive backlash from Israel (which withdrew from the body) and many US groups. SA voted in favour of the bill. Will the resolution sink before it can swim?
