Nelson Mandela, symbol of freedom or subservience ?

Nelson Mandela is « The white man’s favourite politician », says Thabo M’beki. Although originally a freedom fighter to liberate South Africa from the clutches of European savagery and oppression, Nelson Mandela ended up being used by the White Establishment as an instrument to further its cause. To show their gratitude, White Europeans, who originally branded him a terrorist, have turned him into a pop star and a demigod through propaganda

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, born 18th July 1918, was an anti-Apartheid activist and leader of the African National Congress (ANC).  He said he was inspired by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi in his attempt to free South Africa from White European terrorism and racism but, like Gandhi, he was also committed to self-defence against violence if peaceful means failed.  Mandela was also a member of the armed wing of the ANC, the Umkhonto we Sizwe.  Europeans branded him a Communist and a terrorist.  He was arrested, charged with many ‘crimes’ and convicted of sabotage for trying to overthrow the racist South African regime supported by Western Europeans, including Americans, Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, and Israelis after the creation of Apartheid Israel in Palestine in 1948.


The ‘freedom fighter’

As a freedom fighter, Nelson Mandela could be compared to the likes of Robert Mugabe of the then Rhodesia, Fidel Castro of Cuba, Osama Bin Laden of Arabia fighting to free Afghanistan from Soviet occupation, the late Yasser Arafat of occupied Palestine and thousands of others fighting for freedom from the global terror of mainly western imperialism.


Although Apartheid was introduced by the racist National Party (NP) in the 1948 ‘elections’ and became governing political policy, segregation was practiced in South Africa long before.  The Apartheid regime committed unspeakable crimes and atrocities against Black and Asian South Africans – crimes against humanity.  The Soweto massacre is but one example.  While Nelson Mandela was spending 27 years of his life in the prison of Apartheid, other opposition figures were kidnapped and murdered.  Steve Biko, who was gaining great popularity through slogans like « Black consciousness » and « Black is beautiful », was stopped at a road block, stripped naked, tortured and murdered in custody because his captors knew he could not be bought nor would they be able to change his psychological make-up in seeking justice for Black South Africans.  On the other hand, they could obtain ‘positive’ results in the case of Nelson Mandela who they brainwashed in prison; otherwise, they would have murdered him too.  With Steve Biko and other activists eliminated, only the name of Nelson Mandela reverberated round the world as a mere symbol of freedom, but no more.  Although he may well have been a source of inspiration, it is ludicrous to make people believe that Mandela was ‘leading’ a resistance movement from prison.


Seeing that the Apartheid regime was on the verge of collapse, and fearing the consequences of a revolution that would take countless White lives, the European West prepared the ground to place a Black stooge at the head of the country upon the dismantling of the Apartheid regime.  So, they decided to strike a deal with « terrorist » Nelson Mandela while he was still in prison.  As part of this process, the Apartheid President P.W. Botha made contact with Mandela in 1985 upon the advice of the British and other European governments, which include the USA and Israel.  In 1988, the British authorised the organisation of the « Free Nelson Mandela » concert at Wembley Stadium where pop stars and other celebrities galvanised in the mind of the public only Mandela, but no one else.  At that time, Mandela was in his 25th year of internment.  It should be remembered that other ANC senior leaders, such as Walter Sisulu, Andrew Mlangeni, Ahmed Kathrada and Raymond Mhlaba, were also incarcerated, but little is mentioned about them.  No explanation was given as to why such a concert was not organised many years before, and why none was ever hosted to free the Palestinians whose country was also stolen and populated by Europeans.


No justice sought

Nelson Mandela surrendered to the diktat of Western Europeans and agreed a deal in which no action would be taken against any White man despite the atrocious crimes committed against the Blacks and Asians of South Africa.  Mandela agreed that the White supremacists, who also have monopoly in the exploitation of its gold and diamond mines, would keep everything they had stolen and continue to manage the economy of the country.  He also agreed to discontinue the nuclear weapons programme the Apartheid regime was pursuing with Apartheid Israel because they did not want nuclear weapons to fall into the hands of Black Africans.  Upon this blue print, President Frederick Willem de Klerk announced the release of Nelson Mandela in February 1990, after 27 years of incarceration.  Even though Mandela still refused to renounce the armed struggle he committed himself to in the 1960’s because he said it « was a purely defensive action against the violence of apartheid », to all practical purposes there was no need for it because he had already effectively sold his country to the oppressors and became the most revered Black poodle in the European West.


In the New Statesman dated 10th April 2008, John Pilger commented : « I wondered how he [Mandela] had emerged from a quarter-century of incarceration as a sane, rounded, tolerant and gracious human being. »


Without adequate time for rehabilitation, Mandela was elected President of the ANC in 1991, and took part in the country’s first multi-party elections in 1994 when he was elected President of South Africa after he was jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 with Apartheid President F W de Klerk. The South Africans were an exhausted and traumatised people under decades of Apartheid, and they were more concerned with its abolition than with Nelson Mandela who was a mere figure head.  Mandela only remained President for four years (1994 – 1999) after which Thabo M’beki became President.


European Agent

Nelson Mandela is seen by many as a European agent at the beck and call of White European supremacists.  He cannot strictly be compared with M. K. Gandhi who was considered as a real leader with deep sense of values.  The White European Establishment is using Mandela as a pawn to influence world affairs in their favour.  From his early release, instead of concerning himself with the monumental tasks within his own country, especially having been in prison for 27 years and totally disoriented, he indulged in overseas missions at the behest of Europeans.


In 1992, Mandela ‘proposed’ to President George Bush (Sr) to try the two Libyans framed in the Lockerbie Pan Am Flight 103 crash over Scotland in 1988 in a third European (not African) country, and ‘persuaded’ Colonel Muammar Gaddafi to comply.  In a corrupt deal made with Gaddafi, who the Americans tried to assassinate but missed and killed his adopted daughter in the bombing of Tripoli, the two suspects were delivered to the Dutch authorities, the Netherlands being one of the supporters of Apartheid.  One was freed, but the second, Libyan agent Megrahi, was convicted on the most flimsy of ‘evidence’ (Ref. Robert Fisk & Mrs Irvine whose brother, Bill Cadman, was killed in the crash).  On 15th Oct 08, the High Court gave Megrahi leave of appeal against his conviction on the ground that a miscarriage of justice may have occurred.  The appeal is expected to be heard in 2009 before the Criminal Appeal Court.


In 1999, Mandela agreed to intermediate between Israel, another ally of Apartheid South Africa, and its neighbours.  During his visit to Iran (not truly a neighbour of Israel !), he was more concerned with the fate of the 13 Jews accused of spying for Israel and the United States.  As a ‘supporter’ of the Palestinian struggle, Mandela said that Israel should withdraw to pre-1967 borders, but at the same time, he was effectively against such withdrawal unless Arab States recognised the Apartheid State in Palestine, and he saw Israel as an « economic powerhouse » in the Middle East.  He makes no mention of the theft of Palestinian lands, the holocaust and exodus of the Palestinian people, let alone the will of Palestinians.  Would Mandela have accepted the creation of the Apartheid State of Israel in South Africa, his own homeland ?  On the other hand, condemning the assassination of the paraplegic Sheik Yassin, Winnie Mandela, the ex-wife of Nelson Mandela and former President of the ANC Women’s League, said « Apartheid Israel can be defeated, just as apartheid in South Africa was defeated » (Source: Asia Africa Intelligence Wire, 26 march 2004 – BBC Monitoring International Reports).


Although Mandela criticised American venture in Iraq and for « undermining » the United Nations, he fails to ask himself what good were the UN during all the decades of South African Apartheid.  Why is he not going to occupied Iraq, Afghanistan, Kashmir and Diego Garcia?


Mandela in Parliament Square

Like a ‘White European’ statesman, Nelson Mandela’s statue is in Parliament Square, which many Black Africans regard as « Apartheid Square », where he joins the Mothers of Apartheid.  During the unveiling ceremony of his statue on 29th August 2007, Mandela said with shocking callousness : « We half-joked that we hoped that one day a statue of a black person would be erected here alongside that of General Smuts ».  General Ian Smuts was the leader of the Boers and a racist who practiced segregation in South Africa.  Strangely, Mandela is not speaking out against Israeli Apartheid and freedom and justice for Palestinians, but about some vague freedom all around the world without saying where.


Pop concert in place of Soweto Trial

Nelson Mandela never sought justice for the sufferings of the South African people.  There was no SOWETO TRIAL like there was the Nuremberg Trial, nor did he campaign for one.  He never invoked the South African holocaust like so many other holocausts on the African continent.  His campaign is mainly against AIDS which, based upon European propaganda, he accepts as an African disease, which is totally and utterly false.  The first recognised cases of AIDS occurred in New York and California in the early 1980’s among male homosexuals, which Mandela does not want people to know.


When, at Nelson Mandela’s pop star status 90th birthday celebrations in Hyde Park on 27th June 2008 (ahead of his birthday in July 2008), June Sarpong, born of Ghanaian parents, describes Mandela as « the greatest man to ever walk the face of this planet », she was merely demonstrating the epitome of fascist propaganda which is so commonplace in the European West.  It is doubtful whether the South Africans whose families were murdered and terrorised under Apartheid and for whom justice has never been done would share her view.  Nelson Mandela has been turned into a European pop star and a demigod.  As a ‘gift’ for his 90th birthday, George Bush recently signed « into law a bill removing Mandela and other members of the African National Congress from a three-decade-old terrorist watch list. » [7 July 2008].  Now, the European west prepares for his 91st birthday on 18th July 2009 to shower more praise upon him for serving their interests so faithfully.


« The white man’s favourite politician »

Thabo M’beki said that Nelson Mandela is « the white man’s favourite politician » and that « When the White man kicks you down, he also tells you how to react ».  Furthermore, M’beki said: « Sometimes when you are in a helicopter and look down, you don't have to ask which one is a white suburb and which one is an African location. You can see it from the trees [..] That's what we inherited and that's what we must change ».  He went on to say « "a long long time ago" there was a white man who was the president of Zimbabwe who said when he was asked when his country would be called Zimbabwe he said "never in a thousand years". Two years later that country was called Zimbabwe. »


African countries should ensure that their people are taught their history properly based upon credible African historians, and not allow racist powers to meddle in their internal affairs.  This is the real disease which is plaguing Africa and the Middle East.  Freedom does not mean voting for a pro-European corrupt leader in an African country.  Europeans are in no position to teach Africans about democracy, freedom and liberty.  Nelson Mandela’s subservience to White Europeans is glaring and most regrettable.  Their strategy is to try and elevate South Africa as an African superpower under their aegis in order to dominate the African continent, a design which they always had under Apartheid South Africa.



Unlike the philosophy of M K Gandhi, Nelson Mandela is free to let the British write his autobiography (Ref. Anthony Sampson), landscape his garden (Ref. Ground Force), put up his statue in Parliament Square alongside the statue of racist General Jan Christian Smuts, also PM of South Africa between 1939 and 1948, and visit the British Queen in her Palace, but he should not pretend to speak in the name of Africa with its diverse populations which have suffered so much without justice in sight.  Mandela is far from being the symbol of freedom he used to be.  For the White Man, justice for Blacks against Whites amounts to vengeance, and Mandela subserviently bowed down to this nonsense. Nelson Mandela must go down in history for what he really is and not as some form of messiah and idol manufactured by the European West.  Mandela never truly freed South Africa.  John Pilger confirms how « The struggle against apartheid has begun again in South Africa » [New Statesman, 10th April 2008].

Du moment où Mandela est devenu une icône médiatique on ne peut qu'être suspicieux. Pour moi c'est aussi simple que cela !

remarquez quand meme avec quelle maestria Mandela a été ecarté de la scene mondiale sans doute de peur qu'il commence a s'exprimer sur la palestine qui lui rapelle la condition de son propre peuple sous le joug des colons europeens ( encore eux decidement ), son role a été cantonné a quelques apparitions publiques ou il a seulement été paradé sans lui donner parole
