South Africa hosts Hamas leader Mashaal, prompting angry protest by Israel

On the same day that the Israeli media reported Hamas calling on its members to carry out suicide bombings against Israelis, South Africa’s African National Congress (ANC) Party hosted Hamas head Khaled Mashaal in a move that infuriated Jerusalem.

According to South Africa’s Radio Islam, which posted a picture on its Twitter feed of Mashaal meeting South African president Jacob Zuma, Hamas’ “political and decision making body is visiting South Africa to engage with the leadership of the ANC on the party’s shared vision of self-determination for the Palestinian people and a free, independent and sovereign state of Palestine liberated from Israeli occupation.”
