South African Communist Party Admits Mandela's Leadership Role

The New American
08 December 2013

Shortly after the death of South African revolutionary Nelson Mandela, the South African Communist Party and the African National Congress both released official statements acknowledging what was already well-known among experts: “Comrade” Mandela was indeed a Communist Party leader who served on the Soviet-backed organization’s Central Committee. According to the Communist Party statement on Mandela’s passing, not only was the confessed terror leader a senior official on the South African Communist Party’s highest decision-making body, he was actually close to the outfit until his death.

Until last week, apologists for Mandela still claimed implausibly that his “alleged” alliance with international communism was mostly a marriage of convenience. Some of his more ardent or ignorant fans, relying on decades of lying denials from Mandela and others in the know about his membership in the party, even tried to claim that charges of communism were fabrications by Apartheid supporters, “conspiracy theorists,” and “extremists.” For now, the press outside of South Africa does not seem to have even noticed the earth-shattering news.

The controversial revolutionary figure, who admittedly oversaw a ruthless but largely forgotten campaign of terror against civilians that left women and children of all races dead, simply could not have really been a real, card-carrying communist — or so his adoring fans wanted to believe, at least. The latest evidence, however, confirms otherwise, once again. Now, the truth is officially out, but whether it will be reported by the establishment press remains to be seen.
...

In the statement released on December 6 and published by assorted Marxist outfits, the South African Communist Party, or SACP, helped shed light on all of it. “At his arrest in August 1962, Nelson Mandela was not only a member of the then underground South African Communist Party, but was also a member of our Party’s Central Committee,” the SACP said in the statement, illustrating once again the enormity of the long and successful track-record of communist deception.

As to why it was denied for so long, SACP deputy general secretary Solly Mapaila was quoted in South African news reports as saying it was for “political reasons” — apparently people would have been upset to realize their hero and supposed “liberator” was, actually, a card-carrying communist. “There was a huge offensive by the oppressive apartheid regime at the time against communists,” Mapaila said, adding that all of the terrorists tried at Mandela’s Rivonia Trial were Party members.
...

When Mandela was released from prison, Mapaila added, the mass-murdering regime ruling over what was then the Soviet Union was supposedly “crumbling,” and there was “too much negativity around the Soviet system” to tell South Africans the truth. He added: “But we should not focus on that now, let us focus on resting the old man.”

Unsurprisingly, the statement went on to praise Mandela and his African National Congress (ANC), where the South African revolutionary would go on to found the outfit’s armed wing. “To us as South African communists, Comrade Mandela shall forever symbolise the monumental contribution of the SACP in our liberation struggle,” the SACP said. “The contribution of communists in the struggle to achieve the South African freedom has very few parallels in the history of our country.”

Also admitted in the SACP statement are facts that his adoring fans — the United Nations even designated a “Nelson Mandela International Day,” while Obama compared him to George Washington and ordered flags flown at half-mast — will have even more trouble explaining away. “After his release from prison in 1990, Comrade Madiba became a great and close friend of the communists till his last days,” the South African Communist Party said.

Today, the common perception of the South African revolutionary, who regularly sang “struggle” songs advocating the mass-murder of whites, holds that he was a “political prisoner.” Left unmentioned in the SACP statement and the adoring obituaries, of course, was the fact that Mandela was repeatedly offered the opportunity to walk out of jail if he would just renounce violence, which he consistently refused to do. For the SACP and the international communist movement, he represented nothing less than a hero for his positions and activities.

I was scanning the radio dial a couple of days ago, and came across ultra-lefty Randi Rhodes playing clips of Ted Cruz pointing out that Mandela was a communist. Her reaction was simply to repeat, "Oh my god!" over and over again and call him a bigot.

Not once did she actually deny that he was a commie...

"any facts"

And in 20-30 years when the last whites have left or there's only a few left and the country has plunged into the abyss, those same leftists/libs will be asking themselves how that could have happened. They will not be able to face the real facts: the blacks of S. Africa were better off under apartheid and white rule than they are in their typical African third-world, black-run squalor.

Unknown Evidence from the Soviet Archives: What organization did Nelson Mandela belong to? Why is it so important? –

See more at: http://www.christianconceptsdaily.com/unknown-evidence-from-the-soviet-archives-what-organization-did-nelson-mandela-belong-to-why-is-it-so-important/#sthash.KTouQjdy.dpuf

By CCDn / December 9, 2013

The Soviet documents clearly show the true nature of the activities of the African National Congress of the South Africa, which Mandela belonged to. Without them the image of the Nelson Mandela would not be complete.

Nelson Mandela who died last week was touted as an hero by the global media. In our times when esthetical, scientific and even moral authority is television, the half-truth established by the visual means seems hard to be erased or even corrected. An unreality of the television image very often becomes more real than true life.

Such is the case of Nelson Mandela. It is true that as the President of South Africa he made some wise decisions such as formation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. There the perpetrators of crimes after admission and apology were being granted pardon. That was however not his idea.

Mandela was rightfully accused of his involvement in the terrorism and being a member of the Communist party. While the latter was proved recently by the scholars, the top-secret Soviet documents show that the African National Congress of the South Africa (AFC) was supported by the Soviet Union. In fact the AFC was the Soviet instrument of its foreign policy. The unlimited goal of it was to conquer the world with any tactics, including terrorism.

How could it have been?

We need to return to the history of the Soviet Union. It is impossible to understand its activity without first learning about its nature. This is key for understanding the role of the African National Congress of South Africa in the buildup of the Communism. Vladimir Bukovsky, the Russian dissident and the author of numerous publications on the Communist Soviet system emphasizes that the ANC was in fact the Communist Party of South Africa along with the other organization which had the name of the Communist Party. “It was double head organism – the same people led those groups” – he says.

Soviet Type of Foreign Relations

The Communist Party in non-Communist state was more important than its Foreign Ministry. As Dr. John Lenczowski an expert in the strategic policy explained the Soviet Union was the revolutionary state pursuing the Marxism Leninism. According to this ideology the state was an instrument of exploitation of the people. Why did the Soviet Union did exist? This question must be answered with preceding statement that the Soviet Union was not a normal state. The institution of the normal state such as the Soviet foreign ministry were a temporary arrangement aimed to deceive West into believing that USSR was not a revolutionary state.

The Soviet Union, however, as a revolutionary was devoted to promoting a “new form of international relations”: “proletarian internationalism.” This concept described relations that would no longer be conducted between “states”—since the state, according to Marxism-Leninism, was the instrument of the oppressor class—but rather between “peoples.”

Thus as an appropriate Russian term ‘Mezhdunarodnaya otnosheniia’ suggests there were “relations between peoples”.

As a practical matter, for the Soviets, this meant relations between the proper representatives of the people: the communist parties.

The Soviets would contact with the African National Congress through the International Department which was the successor of the Communist International (“Comintern”). The department continued bringing about the revolutionary transformation of non-communist states to the Soviet model of communism.

As Dr. Lenczowski concludes:
These new communist states would then recognize the Soviet Party-state as a legitimate regime, thus ending their potential ideological threat to Soviet rule. The ongoing attempt to promote communist takeovers required a massive investment in the ideological warfare.

It included propaganda, material and military assistance to the various Marxist-oriented revolutionary movements. One of them was in fact the African National Congress.
There is plenty of evidence, which has proven this claim. It is worthy to look at the most precious documents of the highest levels of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (ANC). We obtained three such documents from 1974, 1979 and 1980: thirteen pages of top secret documents signed by the Members of the Secretariat of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and the comrades from the African National Congress of the South Africa.

Moscow Forges Documents for ANC

On June 6th, 1974 the General Secretary of the ANC U. Dadu asked Moscow for one hundred forged, blank passports of Swaziland. What for? Dadu explained that “the ANC activists”, terrorists, are extensively travelling around Africa. The ANC was trying to set up the terrorist camp in Mozambique. As Dadu had explained in his letter, the ANC terrorists would conceal themselves better travelling via third countries to Mozambique. As he said Swaziland passport would be an ideal solution for them.

“Arrival from Swaziland to Mozambique would look like a normal situation” – he had explained. Dadu to his letter attached a copy of the Swaziland passport. He also provided a copy of the stamp of the Immigration Office of Swaziland to be forged by Russians.

On June 16th, 1974 the Deputy to the Director of the International Department R. Ulyanovskiy sent his letter on behalf of the ANC to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. As he explained: “Swaziland borders with the South Africa. Many of the South Africans were travelling to work there. The Soviet Union has no diplomatic ties with this state.” Ulyanovskiy was convinced that “it is important” that the Soviets would provide the forged documents to the ANC. The forgery was supposed to be responsibility of the KGB – he had explained. The KGB official at the Council of Ministers of the Russian government Comrade Tsvigun had a positive opinion about this request.

The Decision of the Central Commitee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union regarding the provision of forged passports to the leadership of the African National Congress of the South Africa. August 19th, 1974.Top Secret.
On July 17th, 1974 the Members of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union ordered the KGB would provide hundred of the forged passports with stamps to the leaders of the ANC in three months.

Another set of documents comes from June and July of 1979.
On June 18th 1979 the top leadership requested the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union for “a brotherly help”. This letter is signed by Comrade Alfred Nzo, the General Secretary of the African National Congress of the South Africa, a successor to Comrade Dadu. What was his request?

Moscow Delivers Man Portable Missile Launchers
In the beginning of 1979, as Nzo wrote, president of the African National Conference of the South Africa, Oliver Tambo met with the Ambassador of the Soviet Union to Zambia Vasiliy Solodovnikov to discuss the air-strike of the military forces of the South Africa against the terrorist training camps run by the African National Congress in Angola. Tambo asked Soviets for the air-defense systems. He informed the Soviet Ambassador that the government of Angola was not able to provide such help to the ANC terrorist camps. The government of Angola agreed that the ANC would support itself with such a military measures.

In his letter sent on June 18, 1979 the General Secretary of the ANZ, Comrade Nzo, described this meeting and presented his shopping list: eight machine gun batteries of ZGU-1 and seven machine gun batteries of ZGU-2 , a heavy machine guns designed to destroy aerial targets; 90 thousand of pieces of ammunition; 200 pieces of Strela (SAM-7) a man portable, shoulder-fired, surface to air missile launchers and the radar systems. Nzo suggested that Moscow would organize the military training for the sixty one comrades from Africa in September of that year. In this letter Ngo informs that representative of the Soviet Embassy in Zambia said to him that the Soviet military experts can train the ANC terrorist in operating of the Strela, a missile launcher. Thirty ANC terrorists should fly to Russia to be trained in ZGU the air-defense systems. This letter was translated by A. Urnov and registered on June 29th, 1979.

Ngo sent his letter through the diplomatic mail via Embassy of the Soviet Union in Zambia. The Soviet Ambassador V. Solodovnikov wrote a covering letter on June 20th, 1979 to the International Department (note that the official of the Soviet Ministry of Foreign affairs, Soviet diplomat, is contacting the Comrades at the International Department not at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs). Soviet diplomat supported the Ngo’s request. Ambassador reminded the Comrades from the International Department that he not only informed them in the telegram about the meeting with the ANC Secretary Tambo but also he sent the Minutes of this discussion, too.

On July 4th, 1979 the Deputy-Secretary of the International Department K. Vrutents explains even better the case of the military assistance to the ANC in his letter to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. His letter is highly educative: “The Communist Party of Angola (CPA) is the democratic-revolutionary party [see: a tautology in this phrase: democrat cannot be revolutionist but it means that communist party which are being called “democrats” will organize revolution to impose the communist system in Angola] which is fighting with the racist regime of the South Africa. The Communist Party of the Soviet Union stays in friendly relations with the CPA and shows different kinds of help.” The opinion of the International Department obliged the Soviet government which is an instrument of the Communist Party. Comrade Vrutents continues: “The International Department advises the Department of Defense to provide assistance and to present a plan for it to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet in one month”.

Nelson Mandela who died last week was touted as an hero by the global media.

Soviet diplomat supported the Ngo’s request. Ambassador reminded the Comrades from the International Department that he not only informed them in the telegram about the meeting with the ANC Secretary Tambo but also he sent the Minutes of this discussion, too.

On July 4th, 1979 the Deputy-Secretary of the International Department K. Vrutents explains even better the case of the military assistance to the ANC in his letter to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. His letter is highly educative: “The Communist Party of Angola (CPA) is the democratic-revolutionary party [see: a tautology in this phrase: democrat cannot be revolutionist but it means that communist party which are being called “democrats” will organize revolution to impose the communist system in Angola] which is fighting with the racist regime of the South Africa.

The opinion of the International Department obliged the Soviet government which is an instrument of the Communist Party. Comrade Vrutents continues: “The International Department advises the Department of Defense to provide assistance and to present a plan for it to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet in one month”.

In June 12th, 1979 the formal request for the military assistance to the CPA was presented to the Office of the Central Committee. This two page document was given a number CT-167/12ge on June 12th, 1979 when nine of the ninth of the members of the Central Committee “voted“ for it in one accord.

On August 28th, 1979 the decision was made by the top leaders, the Political Office of the Central Committee and signed by the General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev – says the top secret Communist Party’s protocol No. 167 and 12gs.

KGB does the training for the ANC peacemakers
The other document dated December 5th, 1980 is a Decision of the Office of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Nine of the nine Members of the Central Committee signed an order for the KGB to organize the course on “the Party’s Techniques”. A Communist Party unlike normal political party was subversive organization which run illegal activities inside the democratic states. The ANC wanted to send “its trusted comrade” for such six weeks training to Moscow. As the document says the KGB would provide the travel assistance, accommodation and cover the expenses of the participant.

This is an answer on the request which the ANC leadership sent via diplomatic mail “through the Soviet Ambassador from the city of Maputu in special telegram no. 738 on November 18th, 1980”. (as the other top-secret document of the Central Committee from November 28th, 1980 states). The course on “the Party Techniques” would be run by the trainers from the International Department. This document was signed by the Deputy to the Director of the International Department V. Zagladin who informed that the Deputy of KGB V. M. Chebrikov “was in agreement with him”.

Those Soviet documents clearly show the true nature of the activities of the African National Congress of the South Africa, which Mandela belonged to. They are encouraging a reader to view the problem of racism in its full political context of those times. Without them the image of the Nelson Mandela would not be complete.
