South Africa’s chief justice, Mogoeng Mogoeng, today came under fire over comments seen as pledging support for Israel.
The ruling African National Congress (ANC) has openly voiced solidarity with the Palestinian cause, comparing it to the struggle against apartheid. Last year, South Africa downgraded its embassy in Tel Aviv.
The judge sparked an outcry for remarks he made during a webinar this week co-organised by the Jerusalem Post and South Africa’s chief rabbi, Warren Goldstein.
Meanwhile, Mogoeng said as a Christian he cannot do anything other than love and pray for Israel because he knows that hatred for Israel can only attract unprecedented curses upon their nation.
