From the front page of today's Star (South Africa):

How long was this activist incarcerated?

Less time than it took to prepare the front page of this newspaper.

The article is just as absurd.

It is believed the intervention of Israeli human rights legal firms Adalah and Gaby Lansky Attorneys helped secure Naidoo’s release and that of the other activists on Thursday night.

Sources close to the WBG campaign in Joburg said the Israeli lawyers had worked “tirelessly” as volunteers on the matter over the past few days.

Naidoo’s release was also attributed to the interventions of South African ambassador to Israel, Sisa Ngombane.

Nelson Kgwete of the Department of International Relations and Co-operation (Dirco) said on Thursday that Ngombane had worked with the Israeli foreign ministry on the matter.
Everyone wants to take credit for working tirelessly to get Israel to release people it never had any intention to hold.

In fact, the official Women's Boat for Gaza page has a completely different reason for the quick release:, citing the "negative media attention" Israel was getting, and crediting - get this - Pink Floyd.

Israel-haters are trying so hard to squeeze every ounce of publicity from a failed publicity stunt. And the South Africa media is complicit in that quest.
