Barrier in SA is okay
CAPE Town City Council is to build a giant fence separating the N2 from people in settlements whose protests “have an impact on economic activity and the safety of others’ lives”.
Apparently the measure stems from government talks dating back a year.
So the ANC does not object to a barrier which will safeguard lives and prevent economic destruction and damage. I have waited for the protests from the ANC, Desmond Tutu, Max Ozinsky and the rest of those who lambasted Israel for erecting a barrier for exactly the same reasons.
Except the Israelis experienced death from those who attacked them, vindicating the barriers’ erection, while locally the problem is mainly faeces- throwing. This is another example of double standards.
The feeble excuses and righteous indignation will soon be flooding in.
