Meet the REAL Nelson Mandela
By Mike Smith
18th of July 2012
Today is the 94th Birthday of Nelson Mandela and the world will be fawning over him and the kids will be sending him birthday cards calling him “The Father of the Nation”, etc…But let us never forget who this man really was/is.
49 years ago on the 11th of July 1963, a week before Nelson Mandela’s birthday, the police arrested a string of top Communists and ANC members on Lilliesleaf Farm, Rivonia, North of Johannesburg.
They were manufacturing bombs and planning the violent overthrow of South Africa that would have lead to an invasion by foreign communist forces.
The shocking details of this evil plot called Operation Mayibuye (A Zulu word meaning, let it return, as in let the country return to the blacks), the brainchild of Arthur Goldreich, came out during the trial and are extremely well documented in the book “Rivonia Unmasked” – Lauritz Strydom available at Ostara Publications
The Rivonia trial was open to the scrutiny and criticism of the media of the world and highly regarded as a fair trial…this could not be said of Communist countries such as Cuba, Russia or East Germany at the time where people who opposed the government would simply disappear or be shot in the back of the head without a trial.
At the time, Nelson Mandela, the main brain behind Umkhonto we Sizwe, the terrorist wing of the ANC, was already in prison serving a five year sentence for incitement of strikes and leaving the country without a passport. He used to live at Lilliesleaf Farm disguised as a gardener and going by a false name of David Motsamayi (meaning "the walker").
During the Rivonia trial Mandela was tried together with the other conspirators for acts of sabotage. The specifics of the charges to which Mandela admitted complicity involved conspiring with the African National Congress and South African Communist Party to the use of explosives to destroy water, electrical, and gas utilities in the Republic of South Africa.
The charge sheet at the trail listed 193 acts of sabotage in total. They were charged with the preparation and manufacture of explosives, according to evidence submitted, it included 210,000 hand grenades, 48,000 anti-personnel mines, 1,500 time devices, 144 tons of ammonium nitrate, 21.6 tons of aluminum powder and a ton of black powder.
The campaign of sabotage against the government was already in full swing and included attacks on government posts, machines, power facilities, crop burning in various places, setting off pipe bombs at the Bantu Advisory Council, the Bata shoe factory, an Indian businessman’s house and the offices of an Afrikaans Newspaper, die Nataller. (pg56)
When he was put in the dock, Mandela refused to take the oath. Mandela denied being a communist despite a handwritten document in his own writing that was submitted, “How to be a good Communist”. He claimed it was just notes written by “a friend” who tried to convert him to communism. Mandela couldn’t name the friend.
Traitors and informers, said Mandela in this document, should be ruthlessly eliminated. He advocated cutting off their noses, pour encourager les autres.
Mandela visited several Communist countries such as Russia, Cuba, Algeria, Ethiopia and East Germany where he received terrorist training and he later returned to visit these countries again to raise and obtain funds and organize terrorist paramilitary training and weapons to be smuggled into South Africa. It was all written down in much detail in his diary also found at Rivonia.
The goal of Operation Mayibuye was to unleash 7000 armed and trained Marxist terrorist onto the country, who would then recruit more members and launch sabotage and terror campaigns murdering millions of white people including blacks suspected of being collaborators or informers to the white government. The country would then be plunged into chaos and under these conditions several communist countries would invade South Africa.
Mandela and his co-conspirators were sent to life imprisonment by Judge Quartus de Wet, judge-president of the high court of the Transvaal. The judge said that they were actually guilty of high treason for which the punishment would have been the death penalty (by hanging) , but because the state prosecutor, Percy Yutar did not prosecute them for high treason, rather the four lesser charges of sabotage, conspiracy to commit sabotage, recruiting and training terrorists and soliciting funds from communist countries for a terrorist onslaught against the country, they got life in prison.
On page 89 of “Rivonia Unmasked” it says “The State had elected, 'for reasons which need not be detailed here', to indict the accused on counts of sabotage; but in reality, Dr Yutar declared, the case was a classical instance of high treason.”
Dr. Yutar, for some or other reason decided that high treason would have been too difficult to prove and rather pursued the lesser charges of sabotage, etc.
In Rivonia unmasked, Dr. Yutar said himself that the documents seized and produced as evidence was enough to get a conviction. He also had more than 200 people he could call as witnesses. Yutar also said that the munitions and weapons found were enough to blow up a city the size of Johannesburg.
As an excellent lawyer he would have had no problem to get the high treason conviction.
Problem was that of the 19 arrested, Goldberg, Bernstein, Hepple, Wolpe, Kantor and Goldreich were Jews, Kathrada and Nair were Indian, and Sisulu, Mbeki, Motsoaledi and Mhlaba were Xhosa, while Walter Sisulu had a Xhosa mother and a white father.
If they were all convicted of high treason, Dr Percy Yutar, a Jew himself, would have sent six fellow Jews to the gallows and the National Party of South Africa would have hanged six Jews which would have been a PR disaster and would have caused an outcry and possible accusations of “Nazism” against the SA government.
I personally believe that the decision to prosecute the Rivonia defendants for sabotage instead of high treason was a political, although the Prime Minister Verwoerd said: “…it just does not happen in South Africa that a Government interferes with its Judiciary.... Our Judiciary is free from all pressure, whether internal or external."
Mandela spent 18 years on Robben Island, then Polsmoor prison and from 1988 in a comfortable house complete with swimming pool on the prison grounds of Victor Verster prison for acts of terrorism and planning to overthrow the government with a violent Communist Revolution that would have killed millions of people. All together he was in prison for 27 years.
He could have been out five years earlier.
In February 1985 President P.W. Botha offered Mandela his freedom on condition that he 'unconditionally rejected violence as a political weapon'. Mandela refused.
Many people saw Nelson Mandela as a “Political Prisoner”, but Amnesty International never recognized him as such because the group "rejects the proposal to recognize as prisoners of conscience people who use or advocate the use of force."
Mandela was a common criminal and terrorist, not a political prisoner.
President F.W. de Klerk lifted the ban on the ANC and the SACP on 2 February 1990 and Mandela was released unconditionally on 11th of February 1990.
Until July 2008 Mandela and ANC party members were barred from entering the United States—except to visit the United Nations headquarters in Manhattan—without a special waiver from the US Secretary of State, because they were still officially classified by the US government as terrorists and the ANC was still on the CIA’s list of known terrorist organizations.
It has to be remembered that these Rivonia men were not sentenced for opposing the government policy of Apartheid. The official opposition, the United Party under Sir De Villiers Graaff and many other law abiding citizens bitterly opposed the policy of Apartheid. That was not illegal. What was illegal was the planting of bombs and indiscriminately blowing up innocent people and children.
Sir De Villiers Graaff in parliament complimented the judge for his verdict and expressed his only regret that the bastards at the Rivonia trial were not charged with treason.
The Prime Minister, Dr H.F. Verwoerd four days after the Rivonia trial silenced South Africa’s critics by pointing out their utter hypocrisy when it came to South Africa.
He said the Rivonia terrorists were dealt with in the same manner as terrorists or spies in the USA, Britain or any western country would have been dealt with.
He said that we were dealing with a Communist attack not only on SA, but also on the West. If they succeeded, SA would have had a Communist totalitarian government with a reign of tyranny just like all other Communist countries experienced. Freedom for all, black and white would have ceased to exist.
Verwoerd said that the West was hypocritical, because they never condemned the murders that followed Communist takeovers in Zanzibar or Vietnam for instance, but constantly criticized South Africa for suppressing such a Communist revolution and thus preventing the murders of possibly millions of people.
He concluded with these prophetic words:
“When therefore it is said in those circles that they are glad that Mandela received a life sentence and not the death sentence, because he may still, like Kenyatta, become the leader of the future, then I say, 'God forbid!'
“If that were to happen, not only would South Africa be doomed and become Communist, but then the world would in time be conquered by Communism, because after that the only bastions which still protect White civilization against that pernicious ideology would fall one after another."
Father of the Nation? What kind of “father” plants bombs and blows up his own children?
