Arjan el Fassed is still having trouble convincing people that he and not Nelson Mandela wrote the now famous Mandela memo to Thomas Friedman of the New York Times. I am posting this now because I was on a South African blog having a complain up about Mandela's apparent reticence about tackling apartheid in occupied Palestine and someone submitted the following quote as if it emanated from the man himself:
"Apartheid is a crime against humanity. Israel has deprived millions of Palestinians of their liberty and property. It has perpetuated a system of gross racial discrimination and inequality. It has systematically incarcerated and tortured thousands of Palestinians contrary to the rules of international law. It has in particular waged a war against a civilian population, particularly children."
I'm surprised that Zionists haven't made more this than they did but the description of Israel is so "on the money" most Zionists probably think it's better to ignore it.
