#Africa4Palestine is in the process of consulting with its legal advisors, following Mogoeng’s criticism of South Africa’s foreign policy and South Africa’s support for freedom & justice of the Palestinian people. It is regrettable that the Chief Justice has publicly entered the Israeli-Palestinian issue on the side of the oppressors – the Israeli regime.
Furthermore, Mogoeng displays utter disregard for international law in his support for Israel, a regime that is a serial violator of UN resolutions and international law. The Chief Justice conflates the modern political entity, the racist State of Israel that was created in 1948, with the Biblical Land of Israel. In the process he does a disservice to the Palestinian Christians who are descendants of the first followers of Jesus Christ. He insults the Christians of Bethlehem, the birthplace of Christ, and those who live in Jerusalem, who are currently living under a brutal Israeli occupation – deemed unlawful by South Africa together with most other countries and the UN.
