African Freedom Fighters: Nelson Mandela of South Africa and Colonel Muammar Qaddafi of Libya


Today Nelson Mandela has passed away aged 95. White "Western" media particularly in the "five eyes" Anglo-Saxon grouping including Australia have for many years been waiting for this day, and finally it has arrived.

When the West refused to allow sanctions against Apartheid in South Africa and used to call Nelson Mandela a terrorist, Gaddafi was embracing him and funding his fight against Apartheid by training ANC fighters, arming them and paying for their education abroad.
Nelson Mandela always has been very reserved to call anyone “friend”, but repeatedly stated Gaddafi is his close friend:

Tripoli, May 18, 1990 (mathaba) ~ Nelson Mandela: “No country can claim to be the policeman of the world and no state can dictate to another what it should do. Those that yesterday were friends of our enemies have the gall today to tell me not to visit my brother Gaddafi. They are advising us to be ungrateful and forget our friends of the past.”

*

October 23, 1997 ~ Victory over destruction; Gaddafi and Mandela in front of Gaddafi’s house which was attacked by the US in April 1986.

*

June 13, 1999 ~ Gaddafi shakes hands with Mandela on his first foreign trip since sanctions against Libya were suspended. Mandela: “We look forward with joy and anticipation to the full re413-entry of Libya into the affairs of our continent and the world.”

*

Never walked alone: “Gaddafi helped us at a time when those who say we should not come to Libya were helping the enemy.” ~ Nelson Mandela

*

There’s the West ~ don’t trust them!”

*

Appearances matter – and remember to smile.” ~ Nelson Mandela.

*

I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.” ~ Nelson Mandela.

*

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Nelson Mandela.

*

PEACE!
