The underlying organisations and individuals express their support for the downgrading of the South African Embassy in Israel.
We believe that all the arguments put forth by Israel and its’ supporters against the downgrading are immaterial and any “negative” impact that they propose the downgrading will have is highly exaggerated and is a vacuous threat.
Even if Israel retaliated by downgrading the South African Embassy in Ramallah we do not believe that it will have a material impact and we believe that Israel will not do this as it really wants to have a foothold in every country. Its attempts to join the AU is evidence of that.
We believe that it is crucial that the downgrading is implemented and a strong message is sent to the Israelis that their continued actions and refusal to genuinely negotiate for an equitable solution to the conflict is unacceptable.
