(NEWS) Israeli Envoy: South African Bias Against Israel ‘Disappointing’

"Israel's envoy to South Africa said the country's recent bias against Israel is not helping to advance peace in the Mideast.

'It is disappointing that the last few months have seen a disturbing and growing tendency by South Africa aligning itself with those critical of Israel,' Dov Segev-Steinberg told about 1,000 delegates attending a meeting of the South Africa Jewish Board of Deputies, the country's Jewish umbrella organization. '[It] does little to advance the cause of peace nor South Africa’s contribution towards it.'

Paul Mashatile, the South African deputy minister of arts and culture and Gauteng provincial chairman of the ruling African National Congress, was in the audience."
