Visit Is­rael to see the truth

The Star Early Edition - - LETTERS - David E Ka­plan

METHINKS the ANC doth protest too much.

It “notes anger” over the leader of the op­po­si­tion vis­it­ing Is­rael, while it reg­is­ters no “anger” at its fail­ures at home – no­tably ram­pant cor­rup­tion.

It is im­per­a­tive that South Africans visit Is­rael and see it for them­selves. This the ANC does not want as it would ex­pose their lies.

Has the ANC for­got­ten that it has an am­bas­sador in Tel Aviv pro­mot­ing bi­lat­eral re­la­tions? How does this gel with its state­ment dis­play­ing clear anti-Semitic over­tones?

The ANC should not ex­pect its “fel­low South Africans” to be suck­ered. Look where it’s tak­ing them – it has in­con­sis­tent for­eign pol­icy and an ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem that is an em­bar­rass­ment. The one thing South Africa so proudly traded on – its moral stature in­her­ited from Man­dela – is now on the same tra­jec­tory as its cur­rency.

South Africans should fol­low the lead of the DA’s Mmusi Maimane and visit Is­rael.

There is noth­ing more lib­er­at­ing than the truth. Kfar Saba, Is­rael
