ACDP Leader Reverend Kenneth Meshoe Challenges President Ramaphosa on Israel-Palestine Comments

Reverend Kenneth Meshoe, leader of the African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP), asserts that countries, including South Africa, advocating for peace should pressure Hamas to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist within secure borders.

Meshoe criticizes the Palestinian militant group for the ongoing conflict with Israel and announces the ACDP’s intention to challenge President Cyril Ramaphosa’s statements regarding the International Court of Justice’s judgment on a Palestinian state.

Surprise at Focus on Palestinians Rather Than Hamas

Speaking to SABC News, Meshoe expresses surprise that the court application primarily focused on Palestinians rather than Hamas.

He emphasizes that true peace can only be achieved when both Hamas and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) accept Israel’s right to exist within safe and secure borders.

ACDP Advocates for Ceasefire and Two-State Solution

Maintaining a firm stance in support of Israel and the Jewish people, Meshoe calls for a more concerted effort towards a ceasefire following the recent judgment.

He advocates for negotiations on a permanent two-state solution to enable peaceful coexistence between Israel and Palestine.

The ACDP believes that the court case is not in South Africa’s best national interest.

Prayers for Peace and Support for Israel

The ACDP, standing unequivocally in support of Israel and the Jewish people, urges South Africans to pray for the innocent victims and their families and specifically encourages prayers for the peace of Jerusalem.

Meshoe emphasizes the need for a global effort to bring about lasting peace in the Israel-Palestine region.
