South African Leader Incites for Death to Jews

He didn’t say “kill the Jews.” He simply invoked the Bible to call for “eye-for-an-eye” revenge on Jews for “killings in Gaza.”

Anti-Israel protest in South Africa.

Incitement and anti-Semitic hate have reached new depths in South Africa, where a union leader wrote a Facebook post calling for “eye for an eye” attacks on Jewish communal officials in retribution for civilian deaths in Gaza.

Tony Ehrenreich, a trade union official and the 2011 Cape Town mayoral candidate for the African National Congress party, condemned the “killings and maimings that have been taking place in Gaza.”

He accused the Israel Defense Forces of “attempts to steal the Palestinian lands.”

Ehrenreich wrote that South Africa’s Jewish Board of Deputies, the national Jewish communal organization, should suffer for its support of Israel.

“This makes the Jewish Board of Deputies complicit in the murder of the people in Gaza,” Ehrenreich wrote. “The time has come to say very clearly that if a woman or child is killed in Gaza, then the Jewish board of deputies, who are complicit, will feel the wrath of the People of SA with the age old biblical teaching of an eye for an eye.”

Got it?

If you support Israel you are an accomplice to what Ehrenreich considers a crime and better run for your life.

That’s called liberalism.
