« A light of South African liberalism has gone out | Main | Israeli Ambassador to South Africa on TV »

January 05, 2009



Was there an equally thick Zapiro comic? I'm in the uk at the moment so i'm curious.


Nope, maybe he is still on leave? I am sure he will soon get in on the act.


Zapiro is on leave. The Times (the weekly) has this cartoon though:


I guess that thickery will have to do.


And the best way for South Africa to show support for Hamas would be…

A photographer was assaulted by a Palestine Solidarity Committee protester on a pavement outside the United States Consulate in Killarney on Friday.

I really think you should reserve judgement on Makhanya and wait for his editorial next week in which he will decry the suicide bombings in Iraq, and the Sri Lankan attacks this week which clearly killed many more civilians than Israel's little foray.

Given that he intends to hold Israel to the same standard as the rest of the world, he will also state his vehement opposition to Russia's campaign into Georgia. We'll forgive him if he doesn't mention Kashmir ... this week.

Surely the BCC is just too soft, his diatribe surely is libel or hate speech?

Israel should be the first to cut diplomatic relations with South Africa. She can then remove herself, with dignity, from all the anti-zionist/ anti-semitic garbage emanating from The RSA.

Israel should do so, not only because of South Africa's hatred towards her, but also because of South Africa's partnership with Mugabe which has led to the destruction of Zimbabwe and its population.


Posner, remember this question you posed to Doron Isaacs:

"Do you agree with Mondli's Makhanya’s use of the word "evil" and Nozizwe Madlala Routlegde’s “worse than Apartheid” description of Israel? Do you believe this has helped the SAHRD gain credibility with Jews who do not seek Israel's destruction? " If no, then will you publicly condemn their comments?

- Anthony Posner

"Their comments can be disagreed with, but I will not condemn them. They were harsh, perhaps unfairly so, but do not contain an ounce of prejudice."

Doron Isaacs in response.

Makhanya is a maniac. Remember all the shocking headlines in the Sunday Times about proof over the arms deal etc etc that never amounted to shit?

Makhanya has turned the once respected Sunday Times into a smutty rubbish read.

Well done in fisking Makhanya.

"Mondlies". The OED defines it as " a serious illness that infects a newspaper editor." It is similar to "Ferialies" but comes out on Sundays rather than Fridays.

Makhanya Mondlies concludes the editorial with his standard inversion of reality...
He writes: "Unless we are prepared to see Israel’s brutal oppression for what it is, and say something about it, we have no right to say anything about any human-rights violators in other parts of the world. Not even about the mad despot next door."

I wonder why he didn't follow a more accurate anti-zionist line and write... "South Africa has no right to say anything about "Israel's brutal oppression" because it is not saying anything "about any human-rights violators in other parts of the world. Not even about the mad despot next door."

how do we make inroads into better defense of Israel in the SA media? I want to throw this paragraph from the Hamas Charter across the front page of all SA newspapers: The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said:
"The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim).
We are too nice...we have to fight fire with fire. Not the nice words of the chief rabbi. Who can help me to access the connections and finances to wage our own media war?????
