Israel's ambassador to South Africa Dov Segev-Steinberg will ask Pretoria for clarifications regarding what is viewed in Jerusalem as nothing less than a South African call for a boycott of Israel, diplomatic sources said Monday.

The sources said a call by South Africa's deputy foreign minister Ebrahim Sunday to his countrymen not to go to Israel "let the cat out of the bag," and showed the hollowness of South African government protestations that it was against boycotts, and that the recent move to label items from the settlements was just an act of trying to "promote transparency."

"The truth is coming out," Foreign Ministry spokesman Jonathan Rosenzweig said. "This is a public call for a boycott."

Ebrahim told the  City Press newspaper he was “discouraging” South Africans from visiting Israel.
