SA Jewish Board of Deputies response to blatant antisemitism by Cricket SA (CSA)

The decision by Cricket South Africa (CSA) to relieve David Teeger of his Under 19 captaincy of the World Cup team starting next week in South Africa is an outrageous act of antisemitism. There is no basis for this decision, other than the fact that Teeger is Jewish. This is not the first time that Jews have been excluded from sporting bodies in our history. It is shameful that CSA is embarking on a path that is dangerously reminiscent of Nazi Germany, when Jews were actively discriminated against, including among sporting clubs.
The SAJBD will do everything in its power to fight against this vicious prejudice. There is no place for Jew-hatred and any form of discrimination in South Africa.
Issued by Karen Milner, National Chairperson of the SAJBD
