Ugly demonization of Israel in S. Africa

Per the South African Zionist Federation:

“The SA Zionist Federation is holding its 47th Conference in March 2011,  and we recently placed an order for conference bags from a company by the name of Saley’s Travel Goods, based near Gold Reef City in Ormonde. The order was confirmed telephonically; we faxed it through and  immediately received the invoice for the goods.The following day, however, the same invoice was faxed through to our offices again, with lines drawn through it stating “Order cancelled by management!” and the following sentences handwritten on the invoice:

“Sorry, we cannot supply you any of our goods as we don’t want or need  your blood money! Please do not contact us any more and remove all our contact details from your records and we will do likewise. We don’t want to aid  and abet organizations that are responsible for crimes against humanity.  Please don’t pay! Don’t contaminate our account with your blood money!”

Over the past few years the SAZF has placed various orders with Saley’s Travel Goods, purchasing conference bags and folders from them. We have never before been confronted with such naked hostility, such unbridled hatred, such disgusting slander and such overt anti-semitic sentiment.

Companies are at liberty to do business with whoever they choose; and it  is their right to refuse to provide us with the goods. However, their reason for cancelling our order is deplorable; hence we have no compunction in naming and shaming them.

– Froma Sacks, Executive Coordinator, South African Zionist Federation


Apart from noting the extreme and glaring hypocrisy of  S. Africans participating in boycotts of Israel as their own country continues to coddle and protect the genocidal leader of Sudan, as Froma Sacks said, in the face of such intolerance, it is incumbent that we continue to “name and shame” those who seek the isolation and delegitimization of the Jewish state.
