They also condemn the administration for neglecting to denounce Hamas’ activities in Gaza.
Christians across South Africa have protested the government’s plan to send Israel to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on claims of perpetrating genocide against Palestinians in Gaza.
“The African National Congress government and their allies’ decision to take Israel to the International Court of Justice has brought us to a place where, like the time of Queen Esther in the Bible, we cannot keep silent. We cannot keep silent when a government that has failed on its domestic mandate wants to rise as a hero in the global political arena.”
– Tshego Motaung, head of the Healing of the Nations prayer for Israel movement, in an article published on the South African Christian website Gateway News.
Her article, released on Tuesday, followed an open letter from dozens of faith-based organizations opposing the case.
The South African Christian Leaders Forum, Christian View Network, Bridges for Peace, International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem, and about 2 dozen other organizations criticized the decision as “fundamentally flawed” after Hamas entered Israel on Oct. 7 and raped, mutilated, burned, and murdered innocent Israelis.
Furthermore, they stated that the verdict would be detrimental to South Africa’s best interests and might have far-reaching political and economic ramifications, given that the country’s main trade partners saw the case as a support of Hamas terrorism.
They also condemned the administration for neglecting to denounce Hamas’ activities in Gaza.
The writers went on to say that South Africa is mostly Christian rather than Muslim.
