Its toe-to-toe in the trenches on campuses around the country. SAUJS is standing their ground against almost insurmountable odds – but with the assistance of the SA Community, Organisations, imports and a lot of diligent planning.

As well as fairness being shown and contracts being signed on the biggest and most politicised campuses – Wits and UCT.

The latest reports are available in the download of today’s newspaper which is attached to this newsletter/website. SA Jewish Report Online has spoken to every campus in the country where SAUJS is represented and we will be giving users a complete update on Thursday morning.

In the meantime, our kids are not being intimidated and are standing their ground. G-d watch over them all. A senior Jewish leader told SAJR today that the time for SA Jewry to be silent is over!

A choice story

Israeli Zionist protagonist Laurence Seeff met with UCT student Zahra in the SAUJS tent on Tuesday. “Her great grandfather was a Jewish Egyptian who was forced to convert to Islam,” explains Laurence. Zahra was born in SA as her father was journalist for AlJazeera and one of his first postings was to SA.

IAW #2 CT Zahara & LaurenceHer father’s international postings meant she grew up in Qatar, Dubai and Saudi Arabia as well.

“She is a devoted Muslim,” Laurence told Jewish report, but she has come back to SA to study because of the repression of Muslim women in the M-East. She popped into the SAUJS tent to ask, as a matter of interest, how the Jewish world was for women.

In Saudi Arabia, for instance, she told Laurence that if her house was on fire and she ran out on her own to escape the flames, she would be committing a serious Sharia offence.

Zahra, who did not proffer her surname or what she was studying, was very relaxed among the Jewish and Israeli students. “She is devoted to Islam,” explained Laurence. But she told him that the way the religion is practiced in much of the Arab world is wrong.

“I felt very similar to her and there was a complete absence of division,” says Laurence. “She wants to see a Saudi apartheid week highlighting the oppression of women in Muslim countries.”

Israeli expat Laurence Seeff who specialises in Zionist advocacy was brought out for IAW by the SAZF and Likud-SA. He has been on campuses and addressing Zionist organisations in the use of social media platforms. He will be giving a talk at Beyachad in Joburg on Thursday night and anyone wanting to attend should contact the Fed to book.
