Thousands gather in support of Israel
JOHANNESBURG – As the war in the Middle East continues, some local opposition parties have thrown their weight behind the Israeli cause.
Inkatha Freedom Party, the ACDP and the Congress of the People took part in the Solidarity Peace Rally for Israel held in Johannesburg on Sunday.
The event, organised by the Zionist Federation, has called for peace and an end to the conflict in Gaza.
Among those who showed solidarity were members of the Gauteng faction of the Shembe Church, led by Bishop Phakama Shembe.
The local politicians are calling for a speedy resolution to the conflict.
