De­struc­tive pens

Finweek English Edition - - Letters - MICHAEL BAGRAIM

I’M A REG­U­LAR READER but have never seen any­thing as de­struc­tive as two let­ters (28 Au­gust) by Firoz Os­man and Uzair Mohsin. Both let­ters con­tain dis­in­for­ma­tion clearly de­signed to turn your read­ers against both Is­rael and Jews world­wide.

As we’ve re­cently cel­e­brated both Eid and the Jewish New Year, I can’t un­der­stand why peo­ple are so hell bent on spread­ing such non­sense. We need to con­cen­trate on build­ing up re­la­tion­ships and on fu­ture co­ex­is­tence in South Africa. I ask read­ers to look for har­mony and points of suc­cess­ful growth as op­posed to venom.

SA’s Jewish peo­ple al­ways hold out a hand of friend­ship to fel­low South Africans and we’re al­ways looking for com­mon­al­ity. I chal­lenge the read­ers and let­ter writ­ers to look for pos­i­tives in the growth of our rain­bow na­tion.
