J’Accuse! Jessie Duarte

South African apartheid has become a convenient and emotive tool of the BDS and other anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian groups. Comments from the ANC government resonates to the left-leaning Woke constituencies and the apartheid canard “milked” for obvious reasons. The ANC government is openly hostile to Israel and has embarked on a never-ending program of castigation of the Jewish State, more so resulting from the recent Gaza conflict.

The deputy Secretary General (SG)of the ANC (the current SG is under suspension as he stands accused of fraud and corruption) Ms. Jessie Duarte has a long record of bias and anti-Israel sentiment – therefore the below letter has relevance in the light of the ANC government’s stand against Israel.

J’Accuse Jessie Duarte

J’Accuse…!“(I Accuse!) – was the title of an open letter printed on the front page of “L’Aurore “ an influential French newspaper in January of 1898 by Emile Zola addressed to the French President accusing him and his government of anti-Semitism.

J’Accuse — I Accuse you Jesse Duarte and your ANC government of blatant anti-Semitism!

You and your colleagues have incessantly been instigating hatred and false accusations at Israel since the start of the recent conflict in Gaza.

You stood in front of a rent-a-crowd of ANC supporters last week at the Israeli Consulate ranting about conspiracy theories, raving about the evils of Israel’s merciless onslaught on innocent civilian Palestinian’s, without any mention of the context of the conflict.

J’Accuse — I Accuse you Jesse Duarte and your ANC government of blatant anti-Semitism!

You stood in front of your rent-a-crowd “supporters” displaying an emotion hardly ever seen before. You ranted persistently that there was only one perpetrator and only one victim. Stirring up a frenzy of hatred hardly ever seen previously.

J’Accuse — I Accuse you Jesse Duarte and your ANC government of blatant anti-Semitism!

No one can recall you ever voicing any comment – let alone the emotion you displayed last week about the tragedy of Syria where your ANC government maintains such warm relations.

The U.N. estimated death toll in the Syria civil war of more than 594,000 to date. Another estimated 8 to 10 million Syrians have been displaced either living in refugee camps or surrounding countries — these are figures substantiated by Amnesty International. That same body reports a further 13,000 people were executed by February 2017 in government prisons.

J’Accuse — I Accuse you Jesse Duarte and your ANC government of blatant anti-Semitism!

In 2016 in Aleppo alone the U.N. estimated that the death toll exceeded over 250,000 civilians and included in that figure were almost 4,000 Palestinians killed. Human Rights Watch states that a whole range of banned weapons were used against civilian populations by joint Syrian-Russian military operations. Banned cluster munitions, incendiary and chemical weapons were used in attacks in civilian populations specifically targeting hospitals, schools as well as mosques and other places where civilians gather have been seen as fair game.

The UN’s humanitarian affairs coordinator, stated that this onslaught could result in the worst humanitarian tragedy of the 21st century!

J’Accuse — I Accuse you Jesse Duarte and your ANC government of blatant anti-Semitism!

You nor your ANC government hardly raised a voice of condemnation against your BRICS partner, Russia for its culpability in the face of these atrocities. Neither much or any condemnation or even a hint of emotion against the Syrian or Russian regimes.

J’Accuse — I Accuse you Jesse Duarte and your ANC government of blatant anti-Semitism

The death of 4000 Palestinians in Aleppo alone went by totally unnoticed by you and your ANC government — That must speak volumes for your concern and empathy of the Palestinian people whose cause you falsely claim to champion.

This is not to mention the devastation of Idlib in Syria, The Yemen conflict and other tragedies around the globe. Therefore Jessie Duarte this leaves one with no other option but to Accuse You of anti-Semitism.

J’Accuse — I Accuse members of the mainstream media for the disproportionate, biased and one-eyed reporting. Sky News in the UK run a series called “Hotspots” who seem to be the only channel to highlight the tragedy of Syria — displaying a modicum of balance.
