As some 100 heads of state were gathering in South Africa to honor Nelson Mandela at a massive memorial service Tuesday, leaders of South Africa’s Jewish community were expressing disappointment with the fact that Israel would not be represented by President Shimon Peres or Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the tribute.

Some lamented the “golden opportunity” being missed by Jerusalem to improve tense relations with Pretoria, and one Jewish leader said the fact that money was cited as a reason for Netanyahu staying home was playing into the image of Jews as miserly. …

I’m disappointed when Jews are disappointed with Bibi. Oh yeah, and offended, too. Thought I’d throw that in.

Yea Bibi! A smart move in my opinion. The final chapter has not been written on Mandela. Let’s see what happens in South Africa in the next 10 years. What will be the real fruit of Mandela’s efforts? It’s quit possible a blood bath is coming. “Let us not do evil that good may come,” which is what he did. A tree is known by the fruit it produces. Mandela is no William Bradford.

Question:

Did Obozo shake his hand as a part of a line of dignitaries or was Castro singled out especially for him to shake his hand?..............

I have the impression Obama walked over to him right before he (Obama) was scheduled to give his speech and shook his hand. I think I saw it on Drudge... I’ll check - try to find a link.

They better say this. They are frightened and have very good reason to be so. If they have kids and love them, they should leave forthwith. With all the other white people....
