The Algemeiner reports: South Africa’s ruling African National Congress voted on Wednesday for an “immediate and unconditional” downgrade of its embassy in Israel at a special conference that was attended by members of Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist organization.

The unanimous vote – held at a meeting of the ANC’s international relations commission during the party’s Elective Conference – means that the country’s embassy in Tel Aviv could soon be reduced to a “Liaison Office.”

A statement from the ANC declared: “In order to give our practical expression of support to the oppressed people of Palestine; the ANC has unanimously resolved to direct the SA government to immediately and unconditionally downgrade the South African Embassy in Israel to a Liaison Office.” The ANC further stated that it concurred “with the PLO leader, General Jibril Rajoub, who was at our conference where (he) explained that the downgrade of the SA Embassy in Israel will send a clear message to Israel that there is a price to pay for its human rights abuses and violations of international law.”
