  1. The law, and the South African Police, ought to be on his side. Depends a little which province, but the Western Cape is very, very strong on the rights of households over intruders.

  2. RE: “threats from various uber-Zionist groups to picket the bar mitzvah service at the synagogue” – R.S.
    FROM AL JAZEERA: (excerpts)…”A very ugly feature of the response to the Goldstone report has been personal attacks like this on him and his family over a sustained period,” Doron Isaacs, a Jewish South African, told Al Jazeera on Thursday.
    “This should not be seen as an isolated incident.”…
    …“There is a belief amongst right-wing Zionist organisations that defaming and humiliating Jewish critics of Israeli policy, will set an example that would intimidate others into silence,” Isaacs, co-ordinator of a community-based education NGO, said.
    Isaacs led a Jewish youth movement that campaigned for a just resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict…

  3. I wrote the paragraph below on my Facebook page when I frits heard of the New Meshuggah South Afrikana (Anti) Zionist Federation madness and totally agree with Richard Silverstein that we have to stand up to this self-appoint drech that wrongly thinks it is helping Israel.

    They do the opposite – they are a danger to World Jewry with their outrageous and transparently dishonest black propaganda.

    See below.


    Unbelievable! Who do these people think they are? Brownshirts? The Star Chamber? The Sth African Zionist Federation is an outrageous betrayel of Jews. They make our (Victoria’s) State Zionist Council look reasonable for merely being the first to boycott an Israeli academic (former MK Naomi Chazan, who was to come here to raise funds for Israel).

    It is time for Real Zionists and decent Jews to stand up to these maddies.

    1. “It is time for Real Zionists and decent Jews to stand up to these maddies”

      If only those categories weren’t mutually exclusive. Losing decency is a prerequisite for Zionism.

  4. Thank you for shining a light of intelligence and sense on these issues. I’m trying to bring to light a little intelligence and sense on the subject of the “useful fools” behind the mask of Solomonia.com – feel free to see what I’ve found here at my blog: http://www.mynewtonlife.blogspot.com/

    I look forward to checking out your recommended reading list!

  5. One would think that it was a duty of the leadership of South African Jewry (if there is any such) to do what it can to MODEL DECENCY both as to Bar Mitzvahs and Grandfatherly participation and, much more important, as to SPEAKING OUT in favor of HUMAN RIGHTS for PALESTINIANS (and, thus as to condemning Israeli behavior).

    When enough NOTABLES OF THE JEWISH TRIBE speak out against the atrocities of the occupation, especially the cruel blockade of Gaza and the short and brutal shooting-fish-in-a-barrel “war” of 2008/2009, the rest of the world (Jews and others) will find it easier to speak out.

    Being DECENT to a bar mitzva boy or to his grandfather is nothing compared to being decent to the 5 million (or so) Palestinians suffering, still, under the Israeli heel since 1948 and 1967 and 1982 and 2005 etc.
