South African nationals serving in the IDF may find themselves in hot water upon returning home due to the Regulation of Foreign Military Assistance Act, an act which officials in South Africa recently threatened to use in order to prosecute those who’ve played a part in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

 

 

A recent report in the South Africa Independent online said that a group known as the Action Forum in Support of Palestine was planning to open a legal case to prosecute Dean Goodson, a young South African they claimed was serving in the IDF.

According to the report, the act stipulates that South Africans taking part in any armed conflicts outside the nation’s borders could face prosecution and jail while only the defense minister could allow for such action by recommendation of the National Conventional Arms Control Committee.

 

Mahomed Bester from the Action Forum in Support of Palestine told the South Africa Independent that, “The spirit of the Act is to prevent citizens of South Africa from being directly or indirectly involved in human rights violations outside the country. I am hereby calling for the prosecution of Dean Goodson for participating in criminal acts against citizens in Gaza.”

The Defense Department clarified that they had not granted any special allowances for South Africans to join the IDF but that they were aware that some citizens had join the Israeli military regardless. Officials also told the South Africa Independent that citizens were suspected of fighting in Afghanistan and West African conflicts.

 

The Action Forum in Support of Palestine said that they also plan to bring cases against four other individuals who they believe to be serving in the IDF.

 

Similar claims were made by pro-Palestinian groups as a result of Operation Cast Lead in 2009 when 73 South Africans were accused of illegally serving in the IDF. Charges were eventually dropped due to lack of evidence.

    That is a very good and necessary step by South-Africa, every country should deal with these traitors and genocidal murderers in the same manner..

    So tough being the master race, isn’t it? All these hay-tahs be hatin’ just cuz God loves you more than anyone.

    Sadly, it’s this kind of thinking that gets them through the day, this kind of rationalization of their inflated egos, as they blow up little babies and kids playing soccer on the beach.

    They are not called :”The International Jew”, for nothing. These tribalists maintain only subjective loyalty to where they reside. Being a follower of Yahweh,and suporting Isreal is number one. They will tun on any friend,or nation,who does not follow them .. the tear syou see,are is th edemented reaction of those brainwashed from infancy(genetics too) ,which tells them that they must have it there way,100 %. They refuse to be in the cycle of humanity. This is why Christ told them:”The rain falls on the just,and the unjust”.

    I think that was Led Zepplin, the Rain Song. “This is the mystery of the quotient. Upon us all, I found a little bit of rain must fall”. “Houses of the a Holy”. Not scripture, but a great song.

    Prosecute any and all of them. They are aiding & abetting in Crimes Against Humanity. Damn them for their fealty to the venomous beast of blood known as $upremaciSt jewry. They will pay a heavy price. Killing innocent people especially women & children is the ultimate act of cowardice.

    SOUTH AFRICA’S GOVERMENT SHOULD PASS A LAW THAT INSTEAD OF PROSECUTING SUCH CRIMINALS THAT GO AHEAD AND SERVE OTHER NATIONS SPECIALY ISRAHELL THEIR CITIZENSHIPS WILL BE TAKEN AWAY FOR SERVEING FOREIGN NATIONS AND COMETING CRIMES AGAISNT HUMANITY THAT COULD BE BRING REPERCUTIONS TO THE SOUTH AFRICAN NATION AS A WHOLE AND EVEN BLAME THE HEADS OF GOVERMENT.

    FOR CRIMINALACTS THAT THE SOUTH AFRICAN NATION CONDEMNS, AS FAR AS SERVING IN THE MILITARYM THE SERVICE OF EVERY CITIZEN SHOULD BE REQUIRED AS AN ACT OF TE CITIZENS LOVE FOR THE NATION THAT PROVIDES THEM WITH A HOME. AND LOYALTY SHOULD BE EXPECTED FROM THOSE CITIZENS TOWARDS THEIR HOME NATION.
