Hawks: It's all 'malicious gossip'

  • Hawks Saps NO
Statements today about arrest warrants for 4 Israeli generals are nonsense, says Hawks spokesman Brig Hangwani Mulaudzi, it is all “malicious gossip!”

Not true, say police! 

Radio Islam International, BDS-SA (the local arm of US anti-Israel NGO Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions [Israel]) and the locally-based Media Review Network (MRN), among others, put out statements this week saying that the “South African Directorate of the Priority Crimes Investigation Unit (DPCIU), known as The Hawks, issued arrest warrants for four Israeli generals." The claims were picked up by major media outlet Cape Times whose front page story announced that the four would face arrest if they visited South Africa. 

The statements and the Cape Times claimed that the warrants of arrest have been issued against: Rau Aluf Gabriel Ashkenazi, Chief of General Staff; Eliezer Alfred Marom, Naval Forces Commander; Avishay Levi, Head of Airforce intelligence; and Amos Yadlin, Major General Chief of IDF Military Intelligence.

Davids, the anti-Israeli media said, had laid her first complaint with the South African Police Service and South Africa’s National Prosecutions Authority (NPA) in January 2011.

The Hawks’ official spokesman, Brig Hangwani Mulaudzi told Jewish Report on Tuesday that he had been inundated with media calls, that he has consulted extensively with all of the Hawks’ units, and that he would like to "please" go on record that “The DCPI would like to distance themselves from such malicious gossip!”

A police media researcher who was not allowed to speak for the department, told Jewish Report that senior officers felt "really annoyed and thought they had wasted a lot of their time" today on what, he said, they thought was most likely a "political hoax".   

Interestingly the Cape Times claimed that SAPS had confirmed in writing that it would enforce the warrants of arrest.

    Why should we not be surprised by BDS, MRN, and the MLA, spewing out bovine manure against Israel and the Jews?
