  • What Nelson Mandela Says

    Nelson Mandela, respected by leaders of MOST countries and by millions of people around the world, stated that George W. Bush "cannot think properly, does not have foresight, and will plunge the world into a holocaust". Guys, it's already starting to happen. Can't everyone realize that yet?

      Not only Nelson Mandela but other Noble prize winners and Economists also acclaimed how stupid is US President.

      Just consider the fact that Clinton stayed in the office for 8 years but Saddam wasnt a big threat to US as he is now. Neither there was Laden threatining US. Answer is "Well Balanced Foreign Policies". Its obvious that G W Bush wants to take revenge of papa Bush's defeat in 1991 and make money with their own oil businesses in Texas.

      Iraq is not a big threat as N Korea to us, knowing the fact that their missle can hit US and they dont give a damn and keeping their nuclear program running. US dare to even come close to N Korea because it knows that they will beat the hell out of it.

      It was embarrassing moment when Mr Powell was trying to make his case against Iraq with intercepted voice communication and pictures of factories. It made the whole world laugh at him as those evidence were not solid. Any 12 years old kid can make pictures like those using Adobe Photoshop and Any one can force people to talk in Arabic about moving some object. No wonder that noble countries like France, Germany are not willing to war until a solid convincing evidence is found.

      Above all, the biggest threat to humanity is USA itself since it has used the Nuclear bombs not only once, but twice in Japan. Why not inspect USA first? Why dont USA stops its Nuclear program and lead by example? Why not evaluate ourselves first prior to telling the whole world about the threats, terrorism, inspections? - Sorry to say but US is led by greedy racists who dont want to evaluate themselve rather worried about making fortune.

          The South African farming community has suffered from racial attacks for many years. The age of those killed range from as old as 87 years to young infants. Genocide Watch has stated that these attacks constitute early warning signs of genocide against Boers and has criticised the South African government for its inaction on the issue. There are 40,000 white farmers in South Africa. Since 1994 close to two thousand farmers have been murdered in tens of thousands farm attacks in South Africa, many brutally tortured and/or raped. Some victims have been burned with smoothing irons or had boiling water poured down their throats.

          There are many white squatter camps around Pretoria. But most are hidden - Afrikaners are too proud to let their poverty show. Four and a half million white South Africans make up about 10% of the population. Many are now being forced to rely on soup kitchens to survive. White unemployment has risen by almost 200% in just five years by the 2006. Some reports indicate that 10 per cent of Afrikaner households now have an average income which puts them into the poorest groups. What is clear, however, is that over 350,000 Afrikaners may be classified as poor, with some research claiming that up to 150,000 are destitute and struggling for survival. The latter inhabit a twilight world of squatter camps, shelters, trailer parks and low-cost accommodation. Certainly the new phenomenon of white poverty is often blamed on the government's Affirmative Action employment legislation, which reserves 80 per cent of new jobs for blacks and favours black owned companies.

          Today, roughly 400,000 whites are too poor to live in safer ˜white' areas. Many live in fear of their lives and property. The belief is widespread among Black men in South Africa that they can cure AIDS by having *** with a woman who does not have the disease. Therefore they seek out very young girls "” presumably virgins and therefore uninfected "” for rape. More than 67,000 cases of rape and sexual assaults against children were reported in South Africa last year. Child welfare groups believe that the number of unreported incidents could be up to 10 times that number. And they also seek out White women, among whom the infection rate is only a tiny fraction of the rate among Black women. Racial hatred also plays a role in the growing incidence of the gang rape of White women in South Africa. South Africa is currently experiencing some of the highest rates of HIV infection in the world.

            Slavery in Mauritania persists despite its abolition in 1980 and affects the descendants of black Africans abducted into slavery before generations, who live now in Mauritania as "žblack Moors" or haratin and who partially still serve the "žwhite Moors", or bidhan, as slaves. The number of slaves in the country is not known exactly, but is estimated to be hundreds of thousands. Kevin Bales believes that the percentage of slaves is the highest in the world. A Nigerian study has found that almost 8% of the population are slaves. In Niger, slavery was only criminalised in 2003 - and the local human rights organisation Timidria estimates 870,000 people are still held in bondage there. According to the American Anti-Slavery Group, black Africans in southern Sudan have been abducted for centuries in the Arabian slave trade, but the slave raids by militia armed by the government increased significantly after the 1989 military coup led by General Omar el-Bashir. Christian Solidarity International Claims that there are 200,000 slaves in Sudan.

            While much has been written concerning the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, surprisingly little attention has been given to the Islamic slave trade across the Sahara, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. While the European involvement in the Trans Atlantic slave trade to the Americas lasted for just over three centuries, the Arab involvement in the slave trade has lasted fourteen centuries, and in some parts of the Muslim world is still continuing to this day. A comparison of the Islamic slave trade to the American slave trade reveals some interesting contrasts. While the mortality rate for slaves being transported across the Atlantic was as high as 10%, the percentage of slaves dying in transit in the Trans Sahara and East African slave trade was between 80 and 90%!

            Even as late as the 19th Century, it was noted that in Mecca "there are few families, that do not keep slaves, they all keep mistresses in common with their lawful wives." The explorer, Heinrich Barth, recorded that a slave caravan lost 40 slaves in the course of a single night at Benghazi. One caravan with 3000 proceeding from the coast in East Africa, lost two thirds of its number from starvation, disease and murder. In the Nubian desert, one slave caravan of 2000 slaves literally vanished as every slave died. Ibn Khaldun (1332 - 1406) the pre-eminent Islamic medieval historian and social thinker wrote: "The Black nations are as a rule submissive to slavery, because they have attributes that are quite similar to dumb animals."

            While many children were born to slaves in the Americas, and millions of their descendants are citizens in Brazil and the USA to this day, very few descendants of the slaves that ended up in the Middle East survive. While most slaves who went to the Americas could marry and have families, most of the male slaves destined for the Middle East were castrated, and most of the children born to the women were killed at birth. It is estimated that possibly as many as 11 million Africans were transported across the Atlantic (95% of which went to South and Central America, mainly to Portuguese, Spanish and French possessions. Only 5% of the slaves went to the United States). However, at least 28 million Africans were enslaved in the Muslim Middle East. While Christian Reformers spearheaded the anti-slavery abolitionist movements in Europe and North America, and Great Britain mobilised her Navy, throughout most of the 19th Century, to intercept slave ships and set the captives free, there was no comparable opposition to slavery within the Muslim world.

            In 2005, more people from Muslim countries became legal permanent United States residents "” nearly 96,000 "” than in any year in the previous two decades. The uptick was also notable among foreigners with nonimmigrant visas. Many Muslims are first or second-generation immigrants. However, up to one-third of American Muslims are African Americans who have converted to Islam during the last seventy years, first into the Nation of Islam and then into mainstream Sunni Islam. A significant number of American Muslims are in fact convicted inmates who converted to Islam in various state and federal prisons. According to the Washington Post, the number of converted inmates is in excess of 250,000. Most of these converted inmates are African Americans.

              With all due respect to Nelson Mandela and other foreigners...but, people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

              Until South Africa, or any other country, becomes "paradise-on-earth," their leaders should keep their opinions to themselves. Such leaders' energies would be better utilized worrying about the domestic disasters for which they are responsible on a daily basis.
