As the systematically anti-Semitic BDS movement and its acolytes, like Israeli Apartheid Week, try to continue their weary journey, even Christian groups in South Africa have started to rail against them.
The Defend Embrace Invest (In) and Support Israel (DEISI) group‚ supported by other groups, has announced a, “Countrywide protest against the BDS (Boycott‚ Divestment‚ and Sanctions against Israel) movement”.
“We condemn such actions by the BDS movement as being unconstitutional‚ opposed to freedom of association and a threat to the employment and stability of the ordinary South Africans employed by those companies‚” DEISI said.
“This is an unacceptable practice of racism and anti-Semitism by the BDS movement and must be called out for its bigotry.
“We believe it is our responsibility to defend the right of Israel to exist within safe and secure borders in their homeland.”
The DEISI statement described itself as “a national group of Christians who have a love for Israel”.
“Only peace and love should be spread from South Africa to The Holy Land of Israel‚” it declared.
The protest action comes as anti-Israel activists hold Israeli Apartheid Week in South Africa. They are planning protests in major cities including Cape Town and Johannesburg.
