South African Zionist dark forces challenge doing so in court.

ANC members have good relations with Jews. At issue is Israeli government lawlessness and longstanding Palestinian persecution.

South Africa's Jewish Board of Deputies national director, Wendy Kahn, denounced Davies' legislation. She condemned efforts to target Israel.

Other deputies preferred to remain unnamed. They lobbied to prevent BDS support. Failed efforts were conducted quietly. 

Last Sunday, South Africa's chief rabbi, Warren Goldstein, ran a front page Johannesburg Sunday Times ad. 

It's South Africa's largest circulation broadsheet. Ad content was disingenuous in tone. It called on ANC conference delegates not to blame Israel for decades of Palestinian conflict. It urged "peaceful negotiations." It said:

"There is talk of a motion being considered for the ANC conference in Mangaung, condemning only Israel for the current conflict in the Holy Land."

"Such a motion will pit people of different faiths in the ANC against each other and further heighten tensions between South Africans of all faiths during a time when we need to come together in the season of peace."

Ahead of Thursday's vote, an unnamed Jewish community leader said "you can't fight this sort of thing in open letters in the newspapers."
