South Africa kicks ass.

This is brilliant. I wish we had more press coverage of this in South Africa! South Africa has always been sympathetic towards the Palestinian course, and this just makes sure that there is not doubt about it. So despite our drawbacks, this is definitely one of those proudly South African moments! 🙂

Incidentally, the use of language by Israel in this report is directly in line with the article I shared earlier regarding racism in South Africa. What irony!
