    Ramaphosa lauds Israel’s entrepreneurship funding

    Nov 07, 2019 Go comment!
    The African National Congress has taken the approach of disinvestment, disengagement, and downgrading relations with Israel since Cyril Ramaphosa’s election in December 2017, so it came as a surprise when the president himself lauded Israel’s economic and technological innovation at a conference in Johannesburg last week.

    Evangelist’s comments on Jews and Afrikaners cause race row

    Nov 07, 2019 Go comment!
    Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Secretary General Godrich Gardee called for an upcoming gathering of Christians to be “booby-trapped” after evangelist preacher Angus Buchan was recorded as saying that only Jews and Afrikaners had a “covenant with G-d”, but both have since apologised for their comments. EFF Deputy President Floyd Shivambu posted a video clip on Twitter of Buchan convening a prayer meeting to be held on 1 February in Pretoria. Shivambu wrote, “A racist Boer Pastor Angus Buchan says it’s only the Boers & Jews who have a covenant with G-d, & he’s convening a predominantly Boers meeting in Loftus Rugby Stadium in February 2020. You can wish whatever you want Afrika [sic], but these people don’t want us.”

    For weeks, I’d been dreading the phone call I got at 05:30 last Friday morning. Nobody wants to die, but for those of us who were fortunate enough to call Xolani Gwala a friend, we knew just how much he wanted to live.

    There was undoubtedly a positive shift in our outlook this week. We went from being in the doldrums over Moody’s taking us to the brink of junk status; the news that unemployment has risen; and there being no light at the end of the economic tunnel, to sheer joy. All this in just 80 minutes!

    Remembering 1995

    I remember the 1995 Rugby World Cup final like it was nine years ago. Matt Damon lifting the Webb Ellis Cup while Morgan Freeman smiled on benevolently, and a crowd of computer-generated extras going wild, uniting a nation, and signalling the beginning of Clint Eastwood’s inevitable decline.

    Robert Sobukwe is South African history’s forgotten man. A deeply ethical, principled, selfless leader of the Pan-Africanist Congress, he has been airbrushed out of the liberation narrative, especially since 1994. Veteran journalist, author, and activist, Benjamin Pogrund, one of Sobukwe’s closest friends, has produced a book that seeks to recapture his ideas and ideals.

    The little-known Jewish link to Fawlty Towers

    Nov 07, 2019 Go comment!
    At first glance, a Torquay hotel, a cantankerous British couple, and a Spanish waiter whose English is almost non-existent don’t seem to have anything remotely to do with being Jewish. However, the iconic British comedy of Fawlty Towers possesses a uniquely Jewish connection, one which may elicit a loud “Que?!” of incredulity.
