A meeting of Nobel Peace Prize laureates, due to be held in Cape Town, has been cancelled after South Africa refused the Dalai Lama a visa.
Sixty-four public figures, including seven Nobel Peace Prize winners, have called for an international arms embargo on Israel for its "war crimes and possible crimes against humanity" in Gaza. The statement came in a letter published in Britain's The Guardian on Friday. "Israel has once again unleashed the full force of its military against the captive Palestinian population, particularly in the besieged Gaza Strip, in an inhumane and illegal act of military aggression. Israel's ability to launch such devastating attacks with impunity largely stems from the vast international military cooperation and trade that it maintains with complicit governments across the world," read the statement. "We call on the UN and governments across the world to take immediate steps to implement a comprehensive and legally binding military embargo on Israel, similar to that imposed on South Africa during apartheid," the letter concluded. Among the signators were Nobel Peace Laureates Desmond Tutu, Betty Williams, Federico Ma ...
Mandela Day Nelson Mandela (Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela) is South Africa’s first black President(May 10th 1994 to June 14th 1999). He is one of the most renowned fighters against the Apartheid regime for the rights of the black population. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993.From September 3rd 1998 to June 14th 1999, he was the general secretary of the Non-Aligned Movement. He is an honorary member of more than 50 international universities. Nelson Mandela was born on July 18th 1918 near Umata, in the eastern part of Cape Province. He was the eldest son of a Thembu tribe chief. The tribe spoke the Xhosa language. Mandela was 9 years old when his father died of tuberculosis. • At the age of 16, he underwent the circumcision ritual in keeping with tradition. • Attended classes at the University of Fort Hare, but was expelled in 1940 for taking part in a boycott. • Worked as an articled clerk at a law firm in Johannesburg. At night he worked on his BA through a University of South Africa correspondent ...
Ancient Man and His First Civilizations The Black Christ Inspired by the 1961 Sharpeville massacre and the banning of Chief Albert Luthuli, this painting was completed in 1962. It challenged the apartheid system, as well as the notion that Christ was white. Chief Luthuli, then president of the outlawed African National Congress and recipient of the 1960 Nobel Peace Prize, is depicted as Christ and Dr H.F. Verwoerd, Prime Minister at the time, and Mr. B.J. Vorster, the then Minister of Justice, as Roman centurions. The work was first exhibited in 1962 at the Anglican Church of St Luke in Salt River, and was almost immediately described as blasphemous. The Board of Censors found that it was calculated to give offence to the religious convictions and feelings of a section of the population and it was prohibited from being exhibited in public. It was smuggled out of South Africa to Britain by anti-apartheid sympathizers, while the harassment of the artist, Ronald Harrison, by the security police intensified a ...

Opinion: Burma’s Next President - by Gwynne Dyer Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize winner and champion of Burmese democracy, declared last June that she would run for President in the 2015 election. If she ran, she would surely win: she is to Burma what Nelson Mandela was to South Africa. However, as things now stand she is not legally allowed to run for President – and maybe she should see that as an opportunity to reconsider whether becoming president is the best use of her talents. Burma is partway through a transition from a fifty-year military dictatorship to democracy, and Aung San Suu Kyi is the unquestioned leader of the democratic movement. Unless the military rig or cancel next year’s election, her National League for Democracy (NLD) will certainly win a large majority in parliament in 2015. But she has no executive experience of any kind. She doesn’t really have experience even in leading a political party, although she was a co- founder of the NLD in 1988 and has always been its lead ...
Nelson Mandela - Jan 18, 1918 - Dec 5, 2013 Nelson Mandela, former South African President and anti-apartheid leader, dies at 95 Nelson Mandela, who spent 27 years as a prisoner in South Africa for opposing apartheid, then emerged to become his country's first black president, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and an enduring symbol of integrity, principle and resilience, died Thursday at 95. The announcement was made by South African President Jacob Zuma, who said in a nationally televised address," Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father. Although we knew that this day would come, nothing can diminish our sense of a profound and enduring loss." Mandela had spent almost three months in a Pretoria hospital after being admitted in June with a recurring lung infection. He died at his Johannesburg home and Zuma said he would be accorded a full state funeral. In Washington, President Obama called him one of the "most influential, courageous and profoundly good" people to ever have l ...
The death of South Africa - By Allister Sparks Read this and weep...Some interesting facts about Welkom, of which most South Africans are possibly not aware. Strange that the situation does not seem to be reflected in mining reports and the stock market in SA - or is it ? Last Sunday's papers covered the Oppenheimer's sale of all their family's de Beers shares for $5.2 billion to Anglo American. Nicky Oppenheimer, current chairman, says it was a tough decision. The death of South Africa's mines is the death of South Africa... There are many microcosms of decay that one can use as examples of the decay of the macrocosm of South Africa. In many respects the booming of South Africa's mining industry and its current decay under the ANC's Black Economic Empowerment system is a microcosm of the booming of the Republic of South Africa under Apartheid and its decay under the ANC Marxist terrorist regime. During the first half of the 20th century, gold was discovered on several farms south of the Free State town o ...
Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013 Nelson Mandela was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 together with Frederik Willem De Klerk for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa. Nelson Mandela died on 5 December. Nelson Mandela held his Acceptance and Nobel Lecture on 10 December 1993 in the Oslo City Hall in Norway.
The Punch. Queen Elizabeth, Fidel Castro, others missing Four past or present United States presidents are among the nearly 100 world leaders joining celebrities and tens of thousands of South Africans to celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela Tuesday, but some of the world’s best-known leaders are not there. Some are staying home for health reasons, like Queen Elizabeth II and former Cuban President Fidel Castro. Pope Francis isn’t coming because of protocol. Popes simply don’t attend the funerals of world leaders. The situation with the Dalai Lama is a little trickier. The Tibetan spiritual leader, who is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate like Mandela, was not granted a visa to visit South Africa the last two times he applied, likely because of pressure from China. He last tried to visit in 2011 for the 80th birthday celebrations of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Tutu lashed out at his government for failing to grant the Dalai Lama permission to enter, comparing denial to the apartheid regime he and Mandela wo ...
20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE AWARDING OF THE Nobel Peace PRIZE TO FW De Klerk AND TO Nelson Mandela Today is the 20th anniversary of the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to FW De Klerk and to Nelson Mandela. Significantly, it is also the day of the principal commemoration in Johannesburg of Mr Mandela’s life. In addition, it is also International Human Rights Day. Perhaps the greatest significance of the twentieth anniversary of the 1993 Peace Prize is the progress that South Africa has made since then. There is no doubt that we have made great advances in the area of Human Rights. We have a Bill of Rights that is enforced by the courts and that guarantees the whole spectrum of civil and political rights. We have a functioning democracy. We have held four free and fair elections and will soon hold the fifth. We have on three occasions witnessed the peaceful transfer of power from one president to his successor. We have established a strong and functioning non-racial constitutional democracy. We have f ...
Four US presidents to attend Nelson Mandela memorial. Security challenge? Four US presidents, at least 50 other world leaders, some two dozen members of Congress, and many other notables will attend Nelson Mandela's memorial service Tuesday in a soccer stadium. With such short notice, it's a big challenge for the Secret Service and other agencies. It wasn’t that many years ago – 2008, in fact – that Nelson Mandela’s name was still on the US terrorist watch list (officially, anyway) for having been a leader of the African National Congress, which advocated armed resistance to South Africa’s white minority regime. That’s when US officials embarrassedly removed his name from the list, by which time Mr. Mandela already was seen as a hero for having peacefully led South Africa out of apartheid, becoming the country’s first freely elected president, winning a US Presidential Medal of Freedom and a Nobel Peace Prize. Today, flags around the US are being flown at half-staff in honor of Mandela, a ra ...
Sport mourns 'miracle man' Mandela Tributes poured in from across the sporting world for Nelson Mandela, who died aged 95 on Thursday, including from the International Olympic Committee, FIFA and a moving valediction from former boxer Muhammad Ali. The heavyweight great said he was ``deeply saddened’’ by the death of the former South Africa president, who had inspired everyone to break barriers and reach for the impossible. ``He made us realise, we are our brother's keeper and that our brothers come in all colours," Ali said in a statement. ``He taught us forgiveness on a grand scale. His was a spirit born free, destined to soar above the rainbows. Today his spirit is soaring through the heavens. He is now forever free." South African rugby also paid its respects to the "miracle" performed by Mandela in uniting his country, partly through his embrace of the Springbok rugby team at the 1995 World Cup. The Nobel Peace Prize winner won over many whites when he donned the jersey of the Springbok - once a ...

PM Dr Manmohan Singh today inaugurated the 3rd BRICS International Competition Conference in New Delhi. On this occasion he called for freeing state-owned enterprises from bureaucratic control and giving them greater functional autonomy to enable them to face competition. The theme of the conference is: Competition Enforcement in BRICS Countries: Issues and Challenges. The participating countries are BRICS Nations: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. The two-day conference is organised by Competition Commission of India (CCI) on behalf of BRICS countries. 2.

U.S. has Mandela on terrorist list Updated 4/30/2008 8:10 PM By Mimi Hall, USA WASHINGTON — Nobel Peace Prize winner and international symbol of freedom Nelson Mandela is flagged on U.S. terrorist watch lists and needs special permission to visit the USA. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice calls the situation "embarrassing," and some members of Congress vow to fix it. The requirement applies to Former South African leader Mandela and other members of South Africa's governing African National Congress (ANC), the once-banned anti-Apartheid organization. In the 1970s and '80s, the ANC was officially designated a terrorist group by the country's ruling white minority. Other countries, including the United States, followed suit. Because of this, Rice told a Senate committee recently, her department has to issue waivers for ANC members to travel to the USA. "This is a country with which we now have excellent relations, South Africa, but it's frankly a rather embarrassing matter that I still have to waive in ...
PALESTINE'S MANDELA -- Marwan Barghouti'S POPULARITY CAN GIVE NEW MOMENTUM TO THE PALESTINIAN STRUGGLE Shannon Ebrahim On Sunday, October 27, the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation launched an international campaign from the infamous Robben Island - where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years - for the release of Marwan Barghouti and all Palestinian political prisoners. The symbolism is powerful. Kathrada launched the "Release Mandela" campaign in 1963, just prior to his own arrest, which saw him also incarcerated on South Africa's Robben Island for 18 years. Now half a century later, as an 84-year-old veteran, he is launching yet another campaign for an iconic freedom fighter. Barghouti's wife, Fadwa, travelled to Robben Island with the Palestinian Minister for Detainees, along with hundreds of special guests, including South African struggle veterans and five Nobel Peace Prize laureates. Barghouti was the first member of the Palestinian Legislative Council to be arrested by Israel, and is one of the most pr ...
1. Wherever Globalism Treads, Trash Follows... South Africa’s Tragedy: Apartheid Replaced with black Racism, Communist Autocracy JOHANNESBURG, Sep. 2 - Former South African President, F.W. De Klerk, said in a London interview on Sep. 2 that the blacks’ “racism threatened to undermine political stability in South Africa, and could lead to a backlash with Afrikaners if left unchecked,” according to a New York Times report. Ironically, the now railing De Klerk, reeling from a backlash of his decision to repudiate apartheid in 1990, once shared a Nobel Peace Prize with the South African former communist-rebel *** former-president, Nelson Mandela, it. Didn’t Mikhail Gorbachev also win a Nobel Peace Prize for betraying his own country? A hint for any future Nobel Peace Price candidates: Patriots need not apply. Which probably makes a leftist traitor like Bill Clinton a shoe in. De Klerk’s comments came on the heels of a letter that the TiM editor had just received from a reader with close ties to So ...
The military coup d’etat by the US funded and controlled Egyptian army highlights the dangers of maintaining standing armies that have no foreign wars to fight. The Romans knew it, the British knew it, and that’s why the Americans since 1945 have gone from one foreign war to the next. These include the 45 year long Cold War with its risks of worldwide nuclear oblivion, and on which trillions of dollars were squandered. Costa Rica’s former President Oscar Arias and the 1987 Nobel Peace Prize laureate told me some years ago: “You don’t appreciate in South Africa just how lucky you are to be so far away from the US.” The whole of Latin America was convulsed throughout the 20th century by destabilisation deliberately instigated by the US war business. The drug trade in Colombia and Central America has been run by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) as part of this agenda. As also evident in Egypt, local army generals were manipulated to serve American interests, and inflicted horrendous human ri ...

Terrorism is not terrorism when the Illuminati Jewish banking cartel is behind it. From 1961-1990, the Illuminati- sponsored African National Congress waged a terrorist war against the Apartheid government of South Africa. It was characterized as a "people's struggle" in the Zionist-controlled mass media. However, when the Palestinians employ terror against the Apartheid regime of Israel, they are "terrorists." Never mind that Israel was built on Zionist terror against the British. When the Illuminati bankers or their shills use it, terrorists are "freedom fighters" and "insurgents." (Syria today is another example.) (Terrorist Mandela wins 1994 Nobel Peace Prize) In South Africa during the 1960's and 70's, barely a week went by without terrorism -- dynamite at a fuel depot, a car bomb outside Air Force headquarters in in a city center. The ANC's guerrilla force -- known simply as MK, or more formally as Umkhonto we Sizwe translated "Spear of the Nation" was founded in 1961 by Nelson Mandela and his handl ...

We need to follow Nelson Mandela’s example. At 92 years of age, the man is a legend, respected worldwide both for his diligent struggle for democracy and all the hardships he suffered during his 27 years of imprisonment. But what Mandela is most respected for is his power to forgive. He forgave all those who were unjust to him and his people for over 350 years when he came into a position of power as president of South Africa. The second step that won him approval was his retirement from politics in 1994. Mandela, had he so chosen, could have stayed in power till his death but he wanted a democracy, not the rule of one individual. In 2007, he celebrated his 89th birthday and surprised everyone by laying the foundation for ‘The Elders’ organisation, whose members were famous elderly personalities from across the globe. These included former US president Jimmy Carter, former secretary-general of the UN Kofi Annan and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Mandela had hoped the meeti ...
03 June 2013 South Africa: The Looming Threat to White Property Rights FW De Klerk Foundation executive director Dave Stewart has big *** He gave a speech three days ago about the looming threat to property rights of White South Africans. What a very brave man Dave is, seeing as most White South Africans feel betrayed by the very man who's foundation he runs. He should instead be giving that speech to his big buddy F-Wit De Klerk - the man who thought he knew better than what history and reality was telling him back in 1992. But, did Foolish F-Wit listen then? No - he was too busy being hypnotised with the idea of receiving a Nobel Peace Prize in exchange for treason, and fooling around with his mistress - you know, being a big Christian and all - standing for one set of values in public, and all the time living like an immoral person behind closed doors. Oh well, I suppose the suppressed truth was going to catch up with De Klerk sooner or later, and what better way to get the truth out than to use ...
As of 12:37 pm EDT Saturday 04 May 2013 website had raised its tally of U.S. military fatalities in Operation Enduring Freedom (the Afghanistan theater of war) to 2212. THE FIGHTING SEASON HAS RETURNED TO AFGHANISTAN. The refrain we hear every winter around Christmas from the U.S. Secretary of Defense and top U.S. "commanders on the ground" in Afghanistan of "progress" being made in this 11 year 7 month long war rings hollow when spring arrives. When Barack Obama was sworn in as President of United States on 20 January 2009 & assumed his duty as Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces, the U.S. military death toll in Operation Enduring Freedom stood at 653. This means that now well over TWICE as many U.S. soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan during the last 51 months of the Obama administration than were killed during 88 months of war in Afghanistan under former President George W. Bush. That makes the death rate for U.S. troops in Afghanistan under Commander-in-Chief Obama, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, ...
Perhaps the most prestigious and coveted award in the world is the Nobel Peace Prize. It has been given for the past half-century to some of the most distinguished, influential, and admirable individuals in the world of politics and political activism. In its history, it has only been bestowed upon 8 individuals from Sub-Saharan Africa, the most memorable of which have been affiliated with the anti-Apartheid struggle in South Africa. According to the Nobel organization itself, the Peace Prize should be bestowed upon someone who, in the words of Alfred Nobel’s last will and testament, “shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.” Looking to future recipients of the prize, I think that the political crisis in Ghana resulting from an ominous Supreme Court challenge by Nana Akufo-Addo, alleging fraud in the December election that resulted in the declaration by the Electo ...
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. SPEECH ON SOUTH AFRICA IN LONDON - DECEMBER 1964 (en route to Oslo to receive the Nobel Peace Prize) I understand that there are South Africans here tonight - some of whom have been involved in the long struggle for freedom there. In our struggle for freedom and justice in the United States, which has also been so long and arduous, we feel a powerful sense of identification with those in the far more deadly struggle for freedom in South Africa. We know how Africans there, and their friends of other races, strove for half a century to win their freedom by non-violent methods. We have honoured Chief Lutuli for his leadership, and we know how this non-violence was only met by increasing violence from the state, increasing repression, culminating in the shootings of Sharpeville and all that has happened since. Clearly there is much in Mississippi and Alabama to remind South Africans of their own country, yet even in Mississippi we can organise to register *** voters, we can speak .. ...
"By any normal definition, they would fit the definition of terrorists. They can decide to attack whoever they choose and cause untold human suffering. They can bomb and bury hundreds of unnamed enemies that would be called genocide in any saner world. And they can even order assassinations of specific people, including their own countrymen. But we are not talking al-Qaeda or LTTE or any such group that everyone considers beyond the pale. They are, in fact, the leaders of the free world – America and Britain. Should Bush and Blair face trial? Reuters Thus far, nobody beyond fringe Left groups has had the gumption to tell it like it is. Now, a widely-respected Nobel Peace Prize winner has done what no one else has: call George W Bush and Tony Blair to account for the sufferings of the people of Iraq and other countries they launched a war against. Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa recently pulled out of a Leadership Summit in Johannesburg when he heard that Tony Blair would be addressing the meetin ...
TALE OF 4 CITIES 94-year-old South Africa's first black President and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Nelson Mandela spent nearly three weeks in hospital in the capital, Pretoria. He underwent surgery to remove gallstones and was recently discharged to his Johannesburg home. 88-year-old 41st US president, George HW Bush, has been admitted to a Houston hospital's intensive care unit. He had a terrible case of bronchitis which then triggered a series of complications. 87-year-old UK's first female Prime Minister, the "Iron Lady", Margaret Thatcher, has been recuperating in a London hospital after undergoing surgery to remove a growth in her bladder. Did you observe that these former leaders are being treated in their countries? Please broadcast this message until it gets to our current leaders. They must fix our hospitals and stop junketing all over the world when they or their relatives are medically challenged. Do you know that their trips are funded by taxpayers' money? Yet they will not provide adequate med ...
women are winning the power battle in Africa In the past 12 months, two African women have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize: Leymah Gbowee and President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf ­, both from Liberia. Gambia's Fatou Bensouda became the first female chief prosecutor at the International Criminal Court;South Africa's Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma became the first female chair of the African Union Commission; and the continent gained its second female president as Joyce Banda took the helm in Malawi. New constitutions in Kenya and Somalia guarantee women a minimum 30% representation in parliament. A record numberof women were sworn in as legislators as Senegal's new parliament was inaugurated last August. Rwanda has long boasted the highest percentage of female parliamentarian ­sin the world. However, while many African countries exceedthe global average for female parliamentarian ­sand ministers, the World Economic Forum's most recent Global Gender Gap report says that less than one in four managers, legislatorso ...

Welcome to the New World Order = Despite national and international condemnation of South Africa's controversial Secrecy Bill, South African MPs have overwhelmingly approved it. Meanwhile the Democratic Alliance said it would petition the Constitutional Court to have the bill declared unconstitutional. The bill has still to be signed by Jacob Zuma before it will become law. The Bill was earlier criticized by Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond Tutu who called it "insulting". The ANC says the law will safeguard state secrets and national security. The Protection of State Information Bill is designed to replace outdated apartheid-era legislation on classified information and espionage, but has met fierce opposition in a country where the media regularly uncover wrongdoing and government excess. SA lower house of Parliament has yet to approve it (should be a rubber stamp) and then it needs to be signed by Zuma before it comes into power (early 2013). The bill will give the ANC lead government the power to class ...
All the worthy winners should hand em all back.. Nobel Peace Prize brews hostility as winners renounce EU’s award | Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa and two other Nobel Peace winners have written to the foundation to protest the decision to award the 2012 prize to the EU. The letter was signed by Mairead Maguire of Northern Ireland (1976) and Argentina’s Adolfo Perez Esquivel (1980). “The EU is clearly not ‘the champion of peace’ that Alfred Nobel had in mind when he wrote his will. The Norwegian Nobel Committee has redefined and remodeled the prize in a manner that it is not consistent with the law.” |

The name of Mahatma Gandhi was nominated four times for Nobel Peace Prize due to his eminent role in South Africa against racial prejudice and his non-violent philosophy,before independence of India- the end of his life but every time his name was rejected by the Nobel Peace committee.Although Gandhi ji's name was nominated severel times but could not materialise because of strong opposition of British Government. The name of Sir Syed Ahmad khan-the founder of Aligarh movement,the great educationnist and social reformer of 19th century has contributed immensely in building modern India,was proposed by some of our friends for Bharat Ratna. But,infact,in order to honouring these two personalities would have definitely added flavour in both awards.
Ever a man of conscience, Nobel Laureate, anti-apartheid icon and retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu has withdrawn from a Leadership Summit in South Africa to protest the presence of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, whose support for the Iraq War Tutu condemned as "morally indefensible." Meanwhile, ca...
Its ok to have a swiss Bank account with millions in it..Congratulations...And even though 10 yrs years ago, you said that a Blind Trust is a "ruse", its ok to have millions in a blind trust that you have no idea of what or how much is in it. But there is no way in the world to have over $100Million in an IRA unless you picked right on every stock and bought every IPO at its lowest since 1929 or your accountant found a way for you to put Real Estate in your IRA at the minimal cost basis or you hit a gold mine in South Africa. The FINRA rules only allow $5,000 annual contribution ($6,000 if you are over age 50 as a catch up). So mathematically its impossible for someone to contribute to an IRA and amass that kind of wealth. Even if he filed as self employed, his contributions are limited based on his annual income. There is no question that Mitt Romney is a smart investor maybe even on the level of Warren Buffet but he does not have the integrity to be POTUS. How can the GOP say Obama is running a di ...
The only street in the world to claim 2 Nobel Peace Prize winners is in Soweto in South Africa. Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu both have abodes in Vilakazi St.,Orlando West.
Hillary Clinton arrives Nigeria Thursday US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is scheduled to arrive Nigeria on Thursday in continuation of her tour of African nations, ahead of the US presidential elections in November. Clinton will be heading to Nigeria from South Africa. She is also expected to visit Benin Republic and attend the state funeral for the late President of Ghana, Professor John Atta Mills on Friday, and thereafter leave Africa for Istanbul, Turkey for talks on the crisis in Syria. On Tuesday, the most travelled American secretary of state in history, met world statesman, South Africa’s Nelson Mandela at his rural homestead where he is living out retirement far from the public eye. Her private lunch with the Nobel Peace Prize winner, the first event of her South African visit, is an honour that few receive as Mandela’s health has become more fragile with age. Mandela did not speak but smiled as he and his wife Graca Machel posed for a picture with Clinton inside his home in the villag ...
A reminder that Nelson Mandela is no saint Travel anywhere in Africa, through its seemingly never-ending wars, drought-ridden plains or malaria infested lowlands, and it is easy to fall into conversation about the continent's travails. And as the discussion turns to rigged elections and the corruption of successive leaders, the same refrain can be heard from Kenya to Nigeria: "What we need here is our own Mandela." It is not difficult to understand why he is seen as a saviour. Not only did he lead the campaign to dismantle South Africa's ugly, racist Apartheid regime, he did what pretty much no other African resistance leader has ever been able to manage: he kept his word, standing aside after one term as president. It is not surprising that he stands today as something of a secular saint. Outside Africa he is a symbol of peace and reconciliation. Only the vague spiritualism of the Dalai Lama or perhaps the selfless sacrifice of Aung San Suu Kyi come close to rivalling Mandela's aura of sheer, untainted g ...
If Che Guevara could help win the Cuban revelution withstanding severe asthma attacks with no medicine and Nelson Mandela could survive 32 years in prison for fighting aparthied then become president of South Africa and if Wangari Maathai could start the green belt movement and win the Nobel Peace prize despite all that was against her, then I can find a place for my boys and me.
Over the years the same questions get asked of Desmond Tutu, the archbishop, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and veteran of the moral movement that ended apartheid in South Africa: "How can you be so hopeful after witnessing so much evil?" "Why are you so sure goodness will triumph in the end?" Thi...
FW got the Nobel Prize for making peace, not for being a Human Rights campaigner (My Tuesday column) I really don’t get the storm that has burst around former president FW De Klerk’s head after his CNN interview. Did people really think De Klerk had somehow mysteriously morphed into a revolutionary or a sweet liberal in the years since he left office? De Klerk said nothing in his interview with Christiane Amanpour that he hadn’t said before. His position, articulated in interviews with me and many others and at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, has always been that apartheid had failed and ended up being a system very unjust to black South Africans, but that the principle of separating ethnic groups in own territories, which was the original basis of apartheid, was not immoral. De Klerk didn’t get the Nobel Peace Prize for his service to Human Rights during his lifetime. He got it for realizing that the game was up and that South Africa would descend into civil war if he didn’t negotiate ...
Mr. Nelson Mandela, the former President of South Africa is another example. He succeeded in his war against Apartheid in his nation, in spite of various failures. Last, but not the least, Mother Teresa got the Nobel Peace Prize for working relentlessly for the ill, poor and needy people. There are so many examples, which show that the word 'impossible' is not present in stalwarts' dictionary but what is present is 'faith'.
