"The most unsafe place today for Jewish people - not to speak for Palestinians, but even for Jews - is in the state of Israel", Beck said.

According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, at least 60 Palestinian demonstrators have been martyred and thousands more injured by cross-border Israeli gunfire in one of the deadliest single day massacres in the country's history.

Experts and pro-Palestine commentators have reacted strongly to the South African decision, with many claiming that South Africa is listening to its conscience as a nation that has had its own historic struggle with apartheid.

"We call on the South African government to reconsider its decision immediately", the two bodies said.

On today's show, Glenn wasn't happy with how NPR conducted the interview.

The ANC recently resolved to call on the government to downgrade its embassy in Tel Aviv to a "liaison office", but it is unclear if and when Pretoria will do so. "While we, the South African Jewish Board of Deputies and the SA Zionist Federation, regret the loss of life of civilians, we recognize that Israel as a sovereign state has the right to defend its own border and its own citizens".

South Africa's ambassador to Israel has already been recalled and non-governmental organisations, such as the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, is calling on government to sever all diplomatic ties with Israel.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Julie Goditiabois, the organizer of the protest, said their aim is to send a message of solidarity to the Palestinians.

"Countries, including South Africa, have been far too patient while people are killed and global law is ignored".

"South Africa maintains further that the violence in the Gaza Strip will stand in the way of rebuilding Palestinian institutions and infrastructure".

"We are against occupiers, and we have to bring peace to the region", Beck added.
