LAURIE CARDOZA-MOORE:  PJTN FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT ON GLOBAL MISSION TO BRING NEW FOCUS ON SOUTH AFRICA

“It’s Time For a Global Dialogue To Combat Anti-Semitism”

(NEW YORK, NY) –June 26, 2019—Laurie Cardoza-Moore, Founder and President of Christian pro-Israel advocacy organization Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN),  has today announced the organization’s deepening commitment to the international focus in the global war on anti-Semitism with the establishment of PJTN’s first international chapter being organized and staffed in South Africa.

“We are planting the first PJTN flag internationally in Johannesburg, South Africa.  I had the distinct honor earlier this month of meeting with both Jewish and Christian leadership at a pre-launch luncheon we hosted as part of a fact finding mission. I was greeted by an amazingly enthusiastic audience that included Christian representation from the South African parliament, several recognized and honored tribal kings and a significant turn-out of black African Christian leadership, all of whom enthusiastically pledged their support to the PJTN mandate to win the global battle against anti-Semitism on our watch. As witnessed in South Africa and around the world this virulent hatred we are seeing has become a community by community global crisis and a grave situation for which we are committed to find solutions.”

PJTN’s introduction into South Africa comes as a by-product of Cardoza-Moore’s recognition by television audiences around the world as the host of “Focus On Israel,” a 30-minute weekly telecast carried by an alliance of major TV media partners whose broadcast coalition brings the series to a potential viewing audience of 2 billion households worldwide.

Her South African meetings included strategies for healing of the wounds of recent past history.  South Africa played a historical role in the links of BDS and the rise of the ‘new anti-Semitism’ being seen worldwide.  The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) emerged at the 2001 UN sponsored World Conference on Racism, and Racial Intolerance which was held in Durban, South Africa.  What ultimately was born of the meeting was a document called the ‘Declaration of Principles’ that birthed the BDS Movement, declaring Israel to be a racist apartheid state and accusing it of committing crimes against humanity, demanding punishment and world censure, as well as the imposing of world sanctions on the diplomatic, economic, social and military fronts between all nations and the Jewish nation. 

Cardoza-Moore believes that PJTN is bringing this messaging of solidarity and support to South Africa at a crucial time:

“Our mission comes amid increasing pressure from the pro-Palestinian organizations in South Africa pushing the BDS movement, as well as from similar agenda coming from the ruling African National Congress Party, which has long been hostile to Israel. In May, SA recalled its ambassador to Israel in the wake of the deaths of Palestinian protestors along the Gaza border. Last December senior Hamas representatives attended the ANC party’s national convention. The climate in South Africa is deeply disturbing . Realizing that 80% of South Africans are Christian, PJTN’s biblical message is ripe for this nation.  Anti-Semitism is rampant in the country because replacement theology is a widely accepted doctrine there, fueling misinformed, misdirected hatred for Israel.  The black South African church will be an important center point to the coalition we are forming to defeat the age old hatred and the progression of anti-Semitism in our generation through the implementation of both action and education.  We are prepared to win the battle.”

Full announcement of PJTN’s Johannesburg headquarters and key staff is pending finalization July 1st. Plans are also underway for a event in September that will bring Laurie Cardoza-Moore back to the continent of South Africa for a series of speaking and event rallies.
