Comment on Archbishop Desmond Tutu Endorses Our Campaign! by Mark Pickard http://openshuhadastreet.org/archbishop-desmond-tutu-endorses-campaign/#comment-4623 Tue, 01 Oct 2013 19:14:48 +0000 http://openshuhadastreet.org/?p=1322#comment-4623 Very nice, but Palestinians aren’t asking to be generously ‘granted’ a ‘state’ of their own…they are asking for their own country back again!

Comment on OSS Statement on BDS SA Chanting “Shoot the Jew” by stuart wragg http://openshuhadastreet.org/oss-statement-on-bds-sa-chanting-shoot-the-jew/#comment-4527 Sat, 31 Aug 2013 06:08:41 +0000 http://openshuhadastreet.org/?p=1235#comment-4527 It is so sad that we, as South Africans, have not learnt the lessons of our past. Those who accuse others of racisim, intolerance etc. are in fact the ones who are racist and intolerant and in this particuclar instance, very ignorant. The BDS SA movement is clearly a racist and violent movement that is not afraid to spout hate speech openly. Not only do they embarress true South Africans, but they deserve to be criminally charged for their behaviour whicvh goes against God and our constitution. I am not Jewish in case someone who reads this may think that I am bias. I am a Christian, gentile South African and I stand for the right of a Jewish Homeland to exist peacefully as a country known as Israel. Perhaps they would now also want to shoot me to..

Comment on South Africa puts a label on settlement goods! by Harry Law http://openshuhadastreet.org/south-africa-puts-a-label-on-settlement-goods/#comment-4428 Wed, 03 Jul 2013 11:56:55 +0000 http://openshuhadastreet.org/?p=1165#comment-4428 Just to add to the above , here in the UK our Consumer protection laws are similar to yours, in a guidance note put out by the Food Standards Agency, they say “where the label carries other information that may imply origin, the actual country of origin declaration should be sufficiently prominent, precise and compelling to correct any potentially misleading impression. Golan Heights is not a country and Israeli goods implies?? All very misleading.

Comment on South Africa puts a label on settlement goods! by Harry Law http://openshuhadastreet.org/south-africa-puts-a-label-on-settlement-goods/#comment-4427 Wed, 03 Jul 2013 11:25:59 +0000 http://openshuhadastreet.org/?p=1165#comment-4427 In International law the South African Government must not recognize an unlawful situation [as an example the Namibia case at the International Court of Justice]. In December 1981 the UNSC passed a resolution, 497, which declared that the acquisition of territory by force was inadmissible and that Israel’s decision to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration in the Golan Heights is null and void and without legal effect.
The South African Consumer Protection Act 2008 at 24 [5] requires the “country of Origin” on any labeling, the Golan Heights is not a country, Syria [country code SY] is the Internationally recognized sovereign over the Golan Heights, simply to describe on the labeling “Golan Heights, Israeli goods” would, in my opinion be misleading and also in clear breach of section 24[5] of the 2008 Act and International law.

We can only speculate that the Israeli and Zionist lobby managed to get the government to water down the wording. However, Israel has still been forced to acknowledge its legitimate borders.
