PRESS RELEASE

LAURIE CARDOZA-MOORE: PJTN FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT TAKING GLOBAL MISSION ON ANTISEMITISM NEXT WEEK TO SOUTH AFRICA HAS A MESSAGE FOR SOUTH AFRICA’S PRESIDENT

“Thank you President Ramaphosa for Your Courage to Stand Up For Israel as a Model for Your Own Country”

(NEW YORK, NY) –November 8, 2019— On her way to South Africa for meetings next week, Laurie Cardoza-Moore, Founder and President of Christian pro-Israel advocacy organization Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN),  today voiced her deep appreciation for South African President Cyril Ramaphosa’s lavish praise last week for Israel’s economic leadership, which he elevated as a model for his own country.  In a major economic summit speech in Johannesburg which was aired across South Africa on national television, the president cited Israel as “Leading by leaps and bounds in economic innovations.” He went on to add “Israel has shown that they can lead, and we can learn a lot from what they do.” 

Cardoza-Moore was enthusiastic in her praise of the South African leader.  “With this step, the President has taken a bold move to distance himself from the staunchly entrenched anti-Israel positions adopted by the ruling African National Congress.  With antisemitism and strong support for the BDS Movement against Israel a crucial problem in South Africa, we as Christians can pray this president is signaling the beginning of a new day of closer ties of friendship for South Africa with Israel and the Jewish people.” 

Cardoza-Moore will be in SA for a series of speaking engagements next week, with major stops set in Johannesburg, Pretoria, and Cape Town.  The mission is one to address the growth of antisemitism that has long ruled in the country.

 “We have planted the first PJTN flag internationally in Johannesburg, South Africa.  I had the distinct honor earlier this year of meeting with both Jewish and Christian leadership  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 antisemitism 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 upcoming  South African meetings will include 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 antisemitism’ 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 antisemitic 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.  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. Antisemitism is rampant in the country because replacement theology is a widely accepted doctrine there, fueling misinformed, and 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 antisemitism in our generation through the implementation of both action and education. We are prepared to win the battle.”

“I am very encouraged with the news of President Ramaphosa’s recent favor towards Israel and have requested a meeting with him while in the country to personally thank him.”
