ANC trip to Israel as likely as operation to the moon

  • 2b-Letter7
In Peta Krost Maunder’s editorial in the SA Jewish Report of 29 March, she refers to Baleka Mbete’s support of BDS [Boycott Divestment Sanctions], and suggests that she get on a plane to Israel to see the country for herself.

Not a chance that she or any other ANC member would be allowed to go to Israel to see the country for themselves.

Should they go, they would be shocked to see that this tiny country in the desert has an abundance of water well beyond its needs; there is no load-shedding; every traffic light works; and there are no potholes on the roads.

Apartheid does not exist anywhere in Israel. Arabs, Christians, and Muslims are members of Knesset, attend universities, and are free to go and shop where they like.

They will see greenery all over the country which was once yellow desert sand.

Agriculture is everywhere. There are trees, fruit, and vegetables all over the country.

There is hardly any unemployment; and there is no car hi-jacking, no house robberies, nobody being robbed or raped. No daily murders of rivals. Women and children are safe.

Imagine Mbete or other ANC members seeing all this and comparing it to what they have achieved.

The answer is simple: don’t go to Israel!

Moreover, is Mbete or any of her compatriots aware that this tiny country, the size of the Kruger National Park, has sent a satellite to the moon, which will land on 11 April. Israel will be the fourth country in the world after the United States, Russia, and China to perform this magnificent feat.
