The African Christian Democratic Part has strongly condemned hate speech against Israeli Apartheid Week.
The ACDP also finds the remarks by the Deputy Minister of International Relations and Co-operation Marius Fransman about Jewish businessmen in Cape Town to be divisive and inflammatory.
ACDP MP Cheryllyn Dudley said the interests of all parties to any religious or national conflict are best served by a process of dialogue aimed at resolving differences and not a process that takes sides and drives parties further apart.
Dudley added that it is over 60 years since the entire world stood up and said "Never Again"; never again to the genocide that saw millions of people mainly Jewish people killed because the Nazi regime found them racially or physically unacceptable, or just disagreed with their views.
"Racism & racial discrimination in all its forms are unacceptable and the ACDP welcomes Human Rights Day and the week to show solidarity with people struggling racism & racial discrimination as an opportunity to speak out against it,” added Dudley.
