The African National Congress, South Africa’s ruling party, accused Israel of conducting “Barbaric” attacks against “defenceless Palestinian people (in) Gaza, and compared the attacks to the Nazi extermination of Jews during World War II.

In a statement signed by Jessie Duarte, ANC deputy secretary general that fails to mention the more than 12,000 rockets from Gaza at Israeli civilians since September, 2000, the party of Nelson Mandela said, “We… are reminded of he atrocities of Nazi Germany. Surely we must ask the people of Israel has the term ‘lest we forget’ lost it meaning,” said the statement,.

Duarte continued: ״The state of Israel has turned the occupied territories of Palestine into permanent death camps. Of course the killing of any child irrespective of race color or creed must be condemned and the death of two Israeli young people is surely as senseless as any other death. But for the State of Israel, the notion of an eye for an eye has become perpetual massacre with merciless revenge which has lasted for more than 60 years. It is time to stop the killing now.״

The statement continues to describe Gaza as “the world`s largest open air prison, with over 1.5 million Palestinians caged in and cut off from the rest of the world.”  It also calls on South Africans of all colors, ethnic groups and religions to “join the Palestine solidarity and boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement in organizing protests and pickets calling for the immediate end of Israeli violence against the Palestinian people.”
