South Africans March To Support Israel

Nearly 2,000 people rallied in support of Israel in two South African cities.

Demonstrators in Pretoria on June 28 and Cape Town the next day protested against the government’s announcement that products originating from Palestinian-controlled areas of the West Bank will be labeled as such, and not as Israeli products.The gatherings included large numbers of South African Jews and Christians.

A thousand people, including Zulu leaders, marched in Pretoria, while 800 gathered in front of the South African Parliament in Cape Town.
