There are consequences to targeting Israel and the Jews

  • Letter2
I refer to your front-page article on 23 February, in which you report that Minister Naledi Pandor has announced that the government wants to downgrade our embassy in Israel to a “liaison office”. The New Century Dictionary describes Pandora’s box as having “contained all the blessings of the gods, which would have been preserved for the human race had Pandora not opened it”. Only hope remains. The ANC and the disinvestment crowd are completely misguided in looking for the mote in someone else’s eye when they have a beam in theirs.

The Poles are also trying to wriggle out of any crimes committed during the Holocaust. Historian and author Jan Gross’s research has revealed that it was the Poles, not the Germans, who had killed the Jews of Jedwabne. The Poles are not sympathetic to the Jews in the country, as we know from Thomas Keneally’s book, Schindler’s Ark. However, there is no doubt that a special place is reserved in Dante’s Inferno for the Nazi commandant.
