Former South African President Calls for Boycott of Israel

South Africa's former President, Thabo Mbeki, has called for a boycott of Israeli goods to show solidarity with Palestinian Arabs, the BBC reported on Tuesday.

The public should mobilize against Israel so that it "does pay a price for the position that it is taking", Mbeki was quoted as having said in the capital, Pretoria.
