Assessment: Since Palestinian leaders refuse to release the bullet that killed Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh which would confirm whether it was fired from a Palestinian gun or Israeli, the hatred grows and Israel is found guilt in the court of public opinion …
Israel is an “evil state which must be destroyed as a matter of urgency,” South Africa’s radical left-wing communist party Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) said in a statement released after the violent clashes during the funeral of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh last week.
The EFF, the third-largest party in the South African parliament, is a pan-Africanist faction that “draws inspiration from the broad Marxist–Leninist tradition,” according to its constitution. The party and its leader, Julius Malema, have been criticized for encouraging racist sentiments against whites and Indians and Malema himself was twice convicted of hate speech.
In the statement, the EFF said it condemns the “sadistic, cruel and genocidal Israeli apartheid state” for Israel Police’s actions taken against Palestinian rioters at the funeral of the Al Jazeera reporter.
