Jews are monsters to be exterminated

Board lays hate speech complaint with HRC over PE lawyer Maureen Jansen’s Facebook rant. “Such hate-mongering goes beyond defaming and threatening any particular group of people; they go against the culture of non-racialism on which our democracy is founded, and as such are an attack on all South Africans” said SAJBD national chairman, Jeff Katz. Jansen’s comments were posted on December 8, said the SAJBD. Read what the PE lawyer had to say...

Port Elizabeth lawyer Maureen Jansen posted a Facebook comment in which, among other things, she referred to Jews as "monsters" who should be "exterminated" for their support - either active or passive - of Israel.

The comment had been posted on December 8 and reads: “Bloody Israelis should be exterminated along with all the ‘Jews’ everywhere who support Israel by action or silence. The Semites of the Torah are long gone. These monsters are Jewish converts, not Semites.”

SAJBD new Protea logoThe comments caused the South African Jewish Board of Deputies (SAJBD) to lodge an official complaint of hate speech with the SA Human Rights Commission yesterday.

The Board’s national chairman, Jeff Katz, said that although preceding the current slew of racist remarks on social media, Jansen’s comments were just one more instance of how certain hate-filled individuals confidently propagated virulent racism against their fellow citizens.

“Such hate-mongering goes beyond defaming and threatening any particular group of people; they go against the culture of non-racialism on which our democracy is founded, and as such are an attack on all South Africans” he said.

The Board made the point that it strongly condemns all racist comments, such as those by Penny Sparrow, Velaphi Khumalo and Nicole de Klerk in recent days.

“No cause, whether political or otherwise, can ever justify incitement to violence, particularly when based on race, religion, ethnicity or other such grounds,” said Katz.

    Is this vile diabolical woman going to get away with her Hitlerite incitement?

    And she's a lawyer?!? Hope she knows how to defend the indefensible. Shame on you!

    A fish rots from the head down, goes the saying.  Presumably these fanatics feel encouraged by our country's distinguished President, who just the other day came out with the profundity that colonialists (read: whites) had stolen (his term) this country from blacks. 

    And the ANC kleptocracy keeps on cozying up to totalitarian states that hate Israel and Westerners (read: whites, including Jews) with great passion. 

    No wonder the country's Jewish and Afrikaner communities in particular are increasingly being regarded as fair game by this unholy, thievish Alliance's (fancy: communists and fascist Africanists in cahoots!) political bedfellows and sidekicks.

    She should be reported to the law society. This conduct is unbecoming of an officer of the court. I see that she is a conveyancer and I hope estate agents and clients will avoid using her services. No doubt that she is allied in some way to government, ANC or EFF or cosatu etc.
