Joburg takes a feather out Cape Town’s cap
For many years now, whenever Parliament is in session on a Friday, pro-Israel supporters gather outside the austere Cape Town building (never more that 15 at a time or it would be considered an illegal gathering) – and simply stand with placards and express support for Israel. Those who attend the gathering are a mix of Jews and members of other faiths who love Israel.
Now, every Friday afternoon in Johannesburg, a group from the Impact for Christ Ministries lead by one of its members, Moses Moyo, moves through the streets of Johannesburg in support of Israel.
They walk past the Gauteng Legislature as they wave flags and make use of a loud-hailer to exhort passers-by to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem, am Yisrael Chai,” they chant.
Occasionally drivers hoot in support or someone shouts some abuse but for the most part people just stop their shopping to watch this display of Israel support in the middle of the day in South Africa.
The rally is held every Friday afternoon and the South African Zionist Federation tries to ensure that there are also Jewish representatives among the volunteers to go along on a regular basis and in small numbers. Anyone interested should contact email@example.com
