South-African-MP-Defies-Government-Policy-Visits-IsraelThe Palestinian government and the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) have condemned this week’s visit to Israel, and specifically an illegal Israeli settlement, by South African MP Kenneth Meshoe, in violation of South Africa’s policy towards the Israeli occupation.

Saeb Erekat, the secretary-general of the PLO and a member of the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, has sent a letter to the South African government slamming Meshoe’s visit.
