Is this just the actions of a few, or is there a well of anti-Jewish feeling?

That's pretty sad, considering that Jews made up a large number of the whites who opposed apartheid.

Huh? You're sad that it's only the action of a few instead of a lot of people?? What are you trying to get out of this question?

The reality is there are always going to be those few idiots in everything who shout the loudest who will end up getting heard over the rest.

No, I meant it was sad that there is Jewish hatred in South Africa considering the fact that Jews were often allies in the anti-apartheid movement. The ones who are showing their hatred should know that.

Unfortunately it's a LOT more complex than that. And honestly it's probably not the best thought pattern to adopt? It's almost as if you're suggesting that those people are indebted to the Jews?

Well, Jewish South Africans don't deserve the hatred being vented at them by those hotheads.

Or...nobody deserves any hatred being vented at them

But again, you're trying to oversimplify this. The important part is that it's just the actions of a few. There is no well of Jewish hatred here.

Just curious, did the Jewish themselves overthrow apartheid? If not, I doubt anyone would see some connection.

From my understanding, almost every group and nation throughout the world was against apartheid. So, if they were simply 'allies' in support, I don't see the debt owed. If Jewish went in there against white's wills (and from my understanding, even many whites were against the system)..

Were all Jews allies or some Jews? Was Israel always an ally? For that matter, was the USA always an ally?
Anyway, as others have implied, there seems to be some oversimplification on the OPs part.
