Instead of recognising this undisputed fact, the SAZF has called for people to increase their purchases of Ahava.
Open Shuhada Street has therefore accused the SAZF of being devoted to increasing the profitability of the occupation and of defending the use of Occupied Territory "in violation of international law and to entrenching and sustaining Israeli settlements which stand in the way of peace".
In 2005 our research unit within the Media Review Network [MRN] had verified that the SAZF has been actively promoting the emigration of South African Jews to a settlement called Modi'in in the West Bank.
Telfed [the SAZF branch based in Raanana, Israel] together with the SAZF have been spearheading the marketing of Modi'in and not surprising too that developers have tried to create a community of SA Jews by offering apartments and homes at discounted prices.
Claiming to be offended now that Saley's has courageously chosen its constitutional right to not be indirectly encouraging Palestinian oppression that the SAZF has on various occasions publically endorsed through statements of support for Israeli military operations in the Gaza, will not wash
David Saks, associate director of the South African Jewish Board of Deputies told Al Jazeera that this was a SAZF issue and they were not prepared to make any statement.
The SAZF is not only ignorant of the Goldstone report but they have violated his rights to belief, family life and dignity.
