As a Boerejood (or Afrikaans-speaking Jew), I can assure you that Mr Goldblatt's irony is strangely lacking in images of Jewish racists in South African history. The National Party would never have come to power the first time around (in the 1920s) without the Jewish-led Labour Party. Nor does Mr Goldblatt's photos reflect the sad truth that, alone among nations, it was Israel that helped Apartheid South Africa develop its arms industry and its nuclear bomb. How very selective Mr Goldblatt's irony is.
