SOUTH AFRICA: NO CRACK­DOWN ON JEWS

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS -

SOUTH AFRICA’S Home Af­fairs Min­is­ter Malusi Gi­gaba has as­sured Jewish lead­ers that the gov­ern­ment would not al­ter dual cit­i­zen­ship laws in or­der to pre­vent Jews from leav­ing the coun­try to join the IDF. Last month, se­nior ANC of­fi­cial Obed Bapela in­di­cated that the gov­ern­ment was con­sid­er­ing such leg­is­la­tion, specif­i­cally with Jews in mind. The South African Jewish Board of Deputies and Zion­ist Fed­er­a­tion ac­cused Bapela of an­ti­semitism. In a meet­ing with Jewish lead­ers last week, Mr Gi­gaba said that the gov­ern­ment did not tol­er­ate an­ti­semitism or other forms of racism.
