In his article lionizing Shawn Slovo of South Africa (Noshes, October 4), Nate Bloom fails to point out that Ms. Slovo’s parents, Joe Slovo and Ruth First, whom he prefers to describe as “anti-apartheid activists,” were among the very founders of the Communist Party of South Africa. Sadly, today’s Communists – many among them are Jews by birth, but not by religion, as they don’t practice any religion, but promote atheism – lend their full support to those seeking to obliterate the world’s only Jewish state, and, along with it, the practice and observance of Judaism, from the face of the earth.
