One of the sorest points for us Whites in South Africa to accept and a really bitter pill to swallow is the role that the church played in our demise.
We can accept everything, we can accept the role of the UN, organizations such as the CFR, etc…but one thing we refuse to accept is that our church brethren ganged up against us and stabbed us in the back. It is just not something Christians do to other Christians. But the record of history stands. Some of the biggest role players in the demise of South Africa and its handing over to a Communist terrorist regime were the churches of the world.
It all had a reason. See…A people that is robbed of its spiritual values and from whom the moral principles and rules of conduct is taken away, becomes a ball in the hands of ideologists and powers that can hit it in any direction it wants.
Today, when we think back to the times during Apartheid, one remembers a lot of prayer and a lot of religion in our lives. Sundays shops were closed. Sundays we went to church and Sunday school. Church was always full and we had to fight for seats. Monday morning at school, hall-assembly was opened with prayer. We had Bible class at school. In fact our education system was called CNE (Christian National Education).
Our parents were involved with church charities, even deacons or elders in the church. These were the people who took us as children to the beach, who bought us ice cream…these were not evil people. These were God-fearing, loving and caring people…
How is it possible that the world could hate such pious people, call them evil monsters and wanted to destroy them? But it is true, that is what happened. We the good Christian people of South Africa were made out to be the skunks of the world by none other than world church organizations.
Saying that the whites of South Africa were traditionally religious is an understatement, and almost a lie in the eyes of people who want to believe that the Whites and especially the Boers of South Africa were “Evil Monsters”.
But let us hear what someone from neutral ground has to say about the pious Boers of South Africa.
The veteran and liberal German journalist and author Peter Scholl-Latour has been throughout Africa and also South Africa during the dark days of Communist takeover of many countries and he wrote a book called “Afrikanische Totenklage” which would loosely translate to “The African Death Song” , subtitled as “Der Ausverkauf des Schwarzen Kontinents” or “The sell-out of the Black Continent”.
On page 372 he has an Interview with a Jewish businessman of South Africa called Arthur Goldstein in 1985…
Goldstein says the following about the Boers…I freely translate…
“These Boers create a double sided feeling within me. The relationship between Pretoria and Jerusalem is closer than both sides would admit. For us it is a pragmatic cooperation against the radical third world states.
But how can we forget that the older generation of the National Party openly sympathized with Hitler and his racial madness during the Second World War? The Prime Minister, John Vorster was a member of the “Ossewabrandwag” a neo-Nazi organization and was during the war interned by the British.On the other side, we discovered here, at the Southern tip of Africa a horribly distorted mirror image of our own religious history. O, these Afrikaners are more true to the Bible than we Jews. They know their old Testament. On TV there is a Bible quiz. On this show, normal every day citizens are tested on their knowledge of the Holy Scriptures. The Quiz-master would ask them about a verse from one of the books of our prophets and almost instantly the answer will come with staggering precision. Do you know that these Boers see themselves as the new “Chosen People of God”? When they trekked away from British domination they saw themselves as the trek of Moses who lead his people to the promised land, and the Blacks they encountered were to them like the Amalekites or the Philistines. During the 1930’s these Boers were impoverished bare feet livestock farmers or railway workers, but after the Second World War they reached their social ascension. Step by step they reached key positions in the Capitalist world and actually pushed the arrogant British against the wall. Believe me, this white tribe of Africa is not in the mood to ever give up or capitulate.”
End of quote.---
So how did it happen that such strong willed and religious people eventually DID capitulate to Satanic Communist forces that they already defeated?
Such a victory could only be achieved through infiltration and treachery at the very heart and soul of the pious Boers…In the centre of all their policies stood their belief in the Almighty God, their Calvinistic values and beliefs such as “good conquers evil”.
World Council of Churches - Satanic Communism
Funny how the same names always re-appear. David Rockefeller not only donated the ground that the UN building stands on in New York, he also built the headquarters of the WCC in Geneva. In 1958 he also donated $2 million to build a training centre for theologians in Geneva. He also donated money for the starting of a fund to further Christian Rock music…
This is the same Rockefeller who built an abortion centre in New York where more than 10,000 abortions take place every year. The same Rockefeller who financed the Sex-Guru Bhagwan, who financed the Club of Rome, etc.
Most people think that Communism is Atheistic; that it simply rejects all religions, but that is not true. Communism is Satanic. Karl Marx was a practicing Satanist detailed in the book “Marx and Satan” by Richard Wurmbrand.
Communists, at least the top Communists are not atheists at all; they believe in God, they just hate him.
Since Mordechai Marx Levy, also known as Karl Marx wrote his three volumes of “Das Kapital” and his “Communist Manifesto”, commissioned and supported by the House of Rothschild and the mysterious “League of Just Men”, the Christian belief system has come under attack from the forces of evil.
The disciples of Marx such as Lenin set out to wipe all religions and especially the Christian religion from the face of the earth, because all these religions stood in the way of a Satanic World Revolution that would put EVIL in charge.
By 1941 there were only 4000 churches left in the USSR from an original 46,000. In the first 30 years after the Bolshevik Revolution, 48 million people were liquidated, the equivalent of a Rwanda every 9 months. Amongst them were 48,000 priests or religious ministers.
Despite the efforts of Stalin and Khrushchev the numbers of believers actually increased in the underground churches. So the Communists decided to change their tactics.
Instead of attacking the church from outside, they started infiltrating the churches with students who were all KGB agents. These theologians knew more about Marx and revolution than they knew about Jesus and prayer.
And so the prosecution of people who baptized their children, their priests etc started, but the Communist would always keep a few churches as show windows for visiting clerics such as Billy Graham who would then go back to the USA and tell of “Religious freedom” in the USSR under Communism.
In the West the Communists used a different tactic. They started using sympathetic liberals and useful idiots to do their work. Georgi Dimitrov, the Bulgarian Communist leader said that such liberals were worth more than “500 poor devils who do not understand much more than allowing themselves to be beaten up and clubbed by the police”.
He also said:
“Specifically, we should use ambitious politicians who needs support; Men who acknowledge that we Communist can smooth their way and give them publicity. Such men would sell their souls to the Devil and we are in the business of buying souls.”
It would not only be politicians who sold their souls to the Devil, but also many Church men.
The Communists knew only too well that the loosing of faith does not come out of the congregation or from the bottom up; No, it comes from the top down from the clergy themselves.
Through the use of these liberal theologians and their “God is dead” theology, every message in the Bible was turned into a revolutionary slogan and the Bible itself became a revolutionary handbook.
At the forefront of this heretical movement was the World Council of Churches (WCC) which is so aptly described by Les de Villiers in his book “SA; Skunk amongst Nations” as “A Churchy version of the United Nations”.
For the WCC it is not about the unity of World Christians, but the unity of all religions, sects and cults, a Socialist brotherhood of man that will open the door for full blown totalitarian Communism. The final goal of the WCC is a One World Government, with one united “Church” for atheist, Budhist, Taoist, Muslim, Jew, Voodoo, etc… The WCC are well known to frequently hold prayer gatherings with Muslims, Hindus, Taoists, etc.
The strategy to let the churches run empty is twofold. On the one side we see in the media how the church is made laughable in the eyes of the world through one scandal after another so that the church loses its credibility in the eyes of the religious Christian. On the other hand there is an active drive to use the Church apparatus and its money to support the goals of Communism.
The attack on the whites of Southern Africa actually started in 1961 when the Russian Orthodox Church was accepted as a member of the WCC. It was the same year that Kennedy called an end to the “Cold War” and proposed a peaceful co-existenz with the USSR. It meant that we had to accept Communist dictatorships as democratic systems equal to that of the west.
This band of KGB agents went to work from the inside of the WCC and after about ten years it would become clear to even the dumbest person that the Orthodox Church was not interested in furthering Christian Ideals, but rather furthering the communist hegemony of the USSR.
In the 1970’s they managed to pass their controversial “Programme to Combat Racism” in the WCC, dressed up and camouflaged to appear somewhat Christian through all the smoke and mirrors of humanistic, theological feel-good bullshit.
Racism would come to mean a one-way street. Only whites were “Racists”. I have until this day never heard of a single cent being spent by the WCC to fight racism against whites…No, the “Programme to Combat Racism” was nothing but a Church funded “WAR ON WHITES”.
Nevertheless, the programme under direction from the Dutch sociologist Sjollema, would be a major success for terrorist groups all over the world, especially for the ones in Southern Africa, who instantly received a moral and theological boost from the main “Christian” organization of the world.
It opened the door for churches and church front organizations to start donating millions of dollars to Marxist terrorist organizations in the name of “Anti-racism” and “Liberation from White Oppression”. Christians from Western nations paid millions over to terrorists believing their money was going for “Humanitarian Aid” in Africa.
Again the double standards we have come to known so far evinced at every meeting of the WCC. Everyone was vehemently opposed to Apartheid, but as soon as the persecution and atrocities against Christians behind the Iron Curtain were mentioned, everyone kept quiet and looked the other way. In 1968 while the free world expressed spontaneous revulsion at the brutal Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia, the WCC remained silent until Soviet goals were achieved.
In the USA these member churches of the WCC would help to drive America out of South Vietnam, letting the entire Vietnam fall into the hands of the Communists scum.
The WCC was so moved by “those who suffer” in Vietnam that it sent sixteen tons of expensive medical supplies and equipment to the Communist Vietcong insurgents…at the same time the WCC assisted and abetted draft-dodgers and deserters from the American Armed Forces in Canada and Sweden.
The Swedish government who were already donating a $100,000 a year to the Marxist cause, suddenly increased their contribution to $3million per year. The Lutheran World Foundations did not waste time either. They donated 65,000 German Marks to FRELIMO, the Communist regime in Mozambique who killed about 2 million people in their civil war with pro West, pro Capitalist, RENAMO.
But the biggest contributor to the Marxist Terrorist cause came from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Germany (EKD). To understand why, one has to understand the German psyche and guilt complex since WWII. The Stuttgart Declaration of guilt made by Martin Niemöller who wrote the famous poem, First they came is the one who is the father of the guilt complex of the Germans. With his declaration, he made all of Germany alone responsible for WWII and all the atrocities…the Allied forces and especially the Russians were ten times worse than the German people, but I suppose it is all about money and enslaving people as milk cows for communism at the end of the day. If you want to be buried in money, just stand in the middle of a German city and accuse them of being “racists” and you will soon see how they will shower you with money with tears of guilt in their eyes.
It might come as a revelation to South Africans that in Germany, people who write on their job applications that they are Christians are taxed for it. One pays about €30 a month to be a Christian. The government actually encourages people to admit that they are atheists when they are not.
This tax called “Kirchensteuer” is deducted by the government and people think it goes for the upkeep of Germany’s beautiful churches, but Norbert Homuth wrote in “Diagnosen” (Oct 1984, pg 42) that 65% of the money paid to the WCC went directly to Marxist Terrorist organizations in South Africa.
The “Patriotic Front” in Rhodesia, in 1978 got US$ 85,000. This Patriotic Front was at the same time supported from Cuba and the USSR. Shortly before this payment the Patriotic Front killed 207 White and 1712 black civilians.
Over the years, millions more from the WCC went to nineteen terrorist organizations, most directly opposed to South Africa such as SWAPO, FRELIMO or the MPLA. In 1978 these terrorist with money from the WCC killed 35 foreign missionaries and their children in Rhodesia.
Previously people would donate money to the church to aid missionaries, to build churches and to help the poor, but now old women in America and Western Europe would starve their canaries for a week to donate money to assist Marxist terrorist organizations who murdered, raped and bombed innocent civilians regardless of colour or creed.
The WCC naively said that the terrorist organizations gave them their word that the donations would not be used for arms. Of course the terrorists would give their word. After the money was donated the WCC had no control over the funds. You cannot put a leg of lamb in a lion’s cage and hope he holds it for a week before he starts nibbling it.
The WCC, forever pontificating about “Love, Justice and Peace” was never interested in uplifting the living standards of blacks in Africa. It is clear from their support of terrorists who wanted to blow up the Cabora Bassa Dam in Mozambique and the Kunene project between Angola and South West Africa…Initiatives of the South African Whites to provide hydro electricity and food production to the entire Southern African region. Sjollema expressed himself to London businessmen saying that the uplifting of black living standards and paying them higher wages was “not helping the situation”…
The strategy is to keep the poor (blacks) in deprivation and misery so as to get them so far as to revolt against their government.
The Kairos document.
The Kairos document is a diabolical, Liberation Theology, Marxist Critical Theory, propaganda, claptrap, document written in 1985, but no-one really knows by whom. Some say that Rev Frank Chikane was one of the authors. It was issued by the ICT or Institute for Contextual Theology, undersigned by some 150 clerics and theologians from just about every church in SA and translated into just about every European, African and Asian Language. Kairos means “The time has come” in Greek…and so the time has come for Apartheid.
In it, Communism is obscured with no real definition and even glorified, while the White government and their God is vilified as “the God of teargas, rubber bullets, shamboks, prison cells and death sentences”…”The Devil disguised as God”… It called for the overthrow of State Theology, only the state is violent; the people just show desperate attempts to defend themselves. The violence of “the people” (Black Communists in the Townships) were likened to that of a woman defending herself against rape.
Basically everything that is against Communism is “evil” and everything that is pro- Communism is “good”…A pseudo religious document that called for Church support of terrorism from Communists against real Christians.
So much for “turning the other cheek” and “loving thy enemies”, hey?
No, “Turning the other cheek” and “loving thy enemy” is only for real Christians suffering genocide and oppression under a Marxist terrorist regime. Then violence against such a tyrannical Communist regime is discouraged. You can read this Kairos document that was undersigned by amongst others, the Catholic Bishop below.
The Kairos Document
Many other churches supported the necklacing and burning to death of black opponents to Communism and the bombing of civilians, black and white, by Marxist terrorist organizations such as the ANC, PAC, Cosas, etc…
In the Citizen of 29 June 1987, a black woman and former ANC terrorist turned Christian, Salamina Borephe, shocked the USA with her acknowledgement of how she took part in this orgy of violence in the townships.
She mentions how the Anglican Church priests told them that “Communists were heroes from central Africa such as Mugabe, Nkomo and Samora Machel. She tells of how these priests taught them to hate the white South Africans and in particular the Afrikaans speaking “Boers”.
She would further mention how they would gather in the Catholic Church on Sunday the 2nd of September and Monday morning around 5h30 they were already up to throw stones at buses and cars.
Many of these Church Men would eventually sell their souls to the Devil and Mammon and oppose the National Christian government of South Africa.
The SA Catholic Church General Secretary, Father Smangaliso Mkhatshwa was arrested for the illegal possession of weapons and ammunition on 16 May 1986.
The great Socialist Saint and propaganda idiot Archdiocese Dennis Hurley was a supporter of the “End Conscription Campaign” and who accused one of our crack anti-insurgent units “Koevoet” of human rights abuses on the Angola border, when at the same time the landmines and atrocities of SWAPO’s PLAN forces on civilian farm roads were overlooked? Despite severe objections from the Catholics of South Africa, the Bishop’s conference in 1984 received around US$ 400,000 from overseas congregations to support Marxist terrorist organizations in SA. The next year the figure tripled to over a million USD.
Another one of these mini United Nations organizations is the South African Council of Churches (SACC) who was in an alliance with the ANC during Apartheid and whose membership included and still includes most of the English Churches as well as the Afrikaans Dutch Reform Church (NG Kerk).
Former leaders included Arch Communist Frank Chikane (one of the alleged authors of the Kairos document and whose feet were washed by ex minister of Safety and Security Adrian Vlok). Also Desmond Tutu and Beyers Naude, both notorious Marxist collaborators and church men who have lost their faith and sold their souls to the Devil, were leaders of the SACC.
The three Afrikaans protestant Churches withdrew from the WCC in 1960 after their Cottesloe Consultation at Johannesburg where Aparteid was investigated in loco and found “guilty as charge”, but most of the English churches remained including the Methodists, Presbyterians, Anglicans and Congregationalists.
The most shocking evidence of the Church involvement with Marxist terrorist organizations in Southern Africa came out on 15 February 1984 in the form of a two year investigation known as “The Eloff Report”.
It revealed the extent to which the SACC and al it’s churches were involved with Marxist terrorists, hell-bent on making South Africa ungovernable with civil unrest in direct contrast to what The Bible says in Romans 13.
Anglican Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu and holder of a Nobel Peace Prize, who was the General Secretary of the SACC at the time admitted that he was waging a massive psychological war against South Africa. Together with their member churches the SACC also waged a war overseas to get governments and organizations to exercise political, economical and diplomatic pressure against the National Party government.
Relentlessly the diabolical SACC (SA Communist Church) campaign was waged against the true Christians of South Africa. These satanic churches were in solidarity with everything from militant “Black-power” organizations, Marxist terrorist organisations to radical black trade unions. Tutu called the leader of the ANC, Arch Communist Oliver Tambo, “A sincere person of Christian conviction in his strive for peace, justice and democracy in South Africa”.
What he failed to explain is what “peace, justice and democracy” means to the Communist. For a Communist peace can only come when the entire world is enslaved under Communism, justice means the summarily execution of all opponents to Communism and Democracy means a One Party Communist State.
Bishop Tutu further failed to mention that Oliver Tambo as the head of the ANC was directly responsible for the Pretoria, Church Street bombing in 1983, where 19 people were killed (many were black women and children) and more than 200 injured.
Tutu called Communist Terrorist Nelson Mandela his boss and “Future State President of South Africa”. This “Red-Bishop” is a self confessed Socialist and someone who “hates Capitalism”, according to the Sunday Times of 29 December 1985, he said…
"There is no alternative to taking up arms. There is no room for peaceful struggle in South Africa." (Washington Times, cit. UCANEWS 10/85)…
…but at the same time claimed to be a pacifist…
How this Satanist could ever be the Archbishop of Cape Town is beyond logic. He even denied the divinity of Christ by saying, "Some people thought there was something odd about Jesus' birth… It may be that Jesus was an illegitimate son." (Cape Times, 24.10.80).
This liar and “Pillar of Peace” who presided over the “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” said… "Thank God I am black. White people will have a lot to answer for at the last judgment." (Argus, 19.3.84)
You can read more of ArchTutu’s wisdom over here…The Arch Bishop and The Bible
The Eloff Report further mentions the “Asingeni Fund” that was advertised to collect and donate money to victims of the 1976 riots and to pay their legal costs. This fund was used for explosives, civil unrest, destruction of private property, robbery, stone throwing, etc…
People like Tutu and Boesak supported the very terrorists who burst into the St. James Church and tried to kill everyone inside with AK47’s and hand grenades. In May 1982 the PAC, who were later responsible for the St. James Church massacre, thanked the WCC and its different organizations for financial and moral support over the past years and expressed their hope that it would continue.
Tutu’s partner in crime at the TRC was Dr Alex Borraine, a former man of the cloth who went to work for Anglo American/De Beers. At the TRC he would be one of the jesters in the “Des and Alex show”. At one stage he even tried his former boss and paymaster Nikki Oppenheimer for alleged collaboration with the Apartheid government. Oppenheimer told him with a smile exactly where to get off…quoting from the Bible, he said to Borraine, “Let he without sin cast the first stone…”
The NG Kerk or Dutch Reform Church also had many of these Anti-Apartheid “men of (their) god”. Beyers Naudé, Nico Smith, Johan Heyns were all secular humanist church men and traitors to their people who played significant roles in the Communist onslaught against White South Africa.
In 1990, Ds. Willie Jonker would pull a Martin Niemöller and take all of the “Blame” and “Sins” of Apartheid on the Afrikaner and his church. A declaration was issued called The Rustenburg Declaration , which proclaimed to all the world that the South African Churches had repented of and confessed to ”heresy”, ”disobedience to God”, ”denial of the Gospel of Jesus Christ”, ”misuse of the Bible”, ”slowness to denounce apartheid” and ”spiritualising the Gospel.”
Professor Willie Jonker of Stellenbosch, though not entitled, confessed the Apartheid guilt of the whole Dutch Reformed Church and the Afrikaans people as a whole.
Willie Jonker pulling out his intestines about Apartheid
Other organizations that supported these terrorists were the UN Trust Fund and the International University Exchange Fund (IUEF, CIA front organization). With this money the WCC also supported other Marxist Terrorist organizations in the Philippines, South Korea and Indonesia.
The onslaught against South Africa was not limited to the greed over its strategic minerals and sea route around the Cape of Good Hope, but it was also a Satanic, end-time attack on one of the last, strong bastions of Christianity that stood in the way of the Marxist “New World Order” and its Pseudo World Church.

Much has been said about the so called superiority of the Ashkenazi Jew’s intelligence over that of other races. Their successes of obtaining the Nobel Prizes speak for itself. But every now and again one comes across a person like Benjamin Pogrund, who seriously makes one doubt that claim.
Pogrund is no stranger to South Africa. He was one of those who use to spread lies about SA and anti-Apartheid propaganda when he was a journalist at the Rand Daily Mail. He is a struggle hero and big mates with the ANC Marxist scum including Mandela himself.
Vehemently against Apartheid and pro-Marxist terrorist Black liberation, Pogrund (His surname means “Arse Ground” in German) could not handle his beloved Black rule in South Africa and in 1997 he left for Israel, from where he learned that no matter where one goes on this planet, hypocrisy catches up with you.
Since around 2000, the allegations that Israel is an emerging “Apartheid State” have been surfacing. Pogrund has written several articles in the past, explaining and defending that Israel is not an Apartheid state.
I do not have a problem with him defending his country against bullshit allegations, as long as he does not aim that bullshit in the direction of my country and my people, because then I will, as he, have the right to defend my country against bullshit allegations.
Pogrund is nowadays a visiting academic to the University of Cape Town, which means he flies in every now and again and takes a few side swipes at the Whites of South Africa.
In his latest swipe at us, Pogrund addressed about 60 people at UCT's Kaplan Centre for Jewish Studies and Research on Monday.
One thing that I agree with him on is when he is quoted as saying “The current definition of apartheid was "useless".
"As it stands, (the definition) could fit everything,"
That is true. The so called “Crime of Apartheid” is contained in the UN’s “International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of The Crime of Apartheid”.
It reads as follows:
International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid,
For the purpose of the present Convention, the term 'the crime of apartheid', which shall include similar policies and practices of racial segregation and discrimination as practiced in Southern Africa, shall apply to the following inhumane acts committed for the purpose of establishing and maintaining domination by one racial group of persons over any other racial group of persons and systematically oppressing them:
a. Denial to a member or members of a racial group or groups of the right to life and liberty of person
i. By murder of members of a racial group or groups;
ii. By the infliction upon the members of a racial group or groups of serious bodily or mental harm, by the infringement of their freedom or dignity, or by subjecting them to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment;
iii. By arbitrary arrest and illegal imprisonment of the members of a racial group or groups;
b. Deliberate imposition on a racial group or groups of living conditions calculated to cause its or their physical destruction in whole or in part;
c. Any legislative measures and other measures calculated to prevent a racial group or groups from participation in the political, social, economic and cultural life of the country and the deliberate creation of conditions preventing the full development of such a group or groups, in particular by denying to members of a racial group or groups basic human rights and freedoms, including the right to work, the right to form recognised trade unions, the right to education, the right to leave and to return to their country, the right to a nationality, the right to freedom of movement and residence, the right to freedom of opinion and expression, and the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association;
d. Any measures including legislative measures, designed to divide the population along racial lines by the creation of separate reserves and ghettos for the members of a racial group or groups, the prohibition of mixed marriages among members of various racial groups, the expropriation of landed property belonging to a racial group or groups or to members thereof;
e. Exploitation of the labour of the members of a racial group or groups, in particular by submitting them to forced labour;
f. Persecution of organizations and persons, by depriving them of fundamental rights and freedoms, because they oppose apartheid.
On every single point listed in this so called “Crime of Apartheid”, I can accuse the Soviet Union of and certainly every single Black African state where Communist regimes took over.
The forced labour in the gulags, the denial to life of murdering millions of people of various ethnic or religious backgrounds, severely restricting free movement of citizens, arbitrary arrest and illegal imprisonment, kidnappings and human trade...it is all there and as far as my knowledge stretches, it is exactly what every single Communist regime implemented thus far.
It has to be noted, as I have pointed out in the previous edition, That South Africa was indeed taken to the International Court in the Hague on charges of “Human Rights abuses” back in 1962. The ones who brought these charges were Ethiopia and Liberia.
The court found SA “NOT GUILTY”...
Since then and up until this day, nobody has ever been prosecuted less found guilty on “The Crime of Apartheid”.
Nevertheless, Pogrund carries on and says: “But real apartheid is institutionalised in every aspect of life."
See, this is where I start getting a bit confused, because Pogrund admits that the definition of Apartheid is bullshit and can mean anything, but then neglects to give a proper definition of “Real Apartheid”.
Pogrund says there were, “three fundamental differences between apartheid South Africa and modern-day Israel.”
3. and reliance on minority labour
Our “visiting fellow of UCT” explains further that, “For apartheid South Africa, religion was more a means of justification than a motivating factor”
Sorry, but I fail to see how that differs from the justifications claimed by Israel or the Pallestinians for that matter. Both claims that they have a God given right to the territory.
Nevertheless, it is at this stage where Pogrund starts to speak out of his arse…He says,…
And in South Africa, the types of violence were very different.
"There were never drive-by shootings or suicide bombs,"
Say what? There has been drive-by shootings between rival taxi gangs and in KwaZulu-Natal between the ANC (Xhosas) and the IFP (Zulus) on a regular basis. As for “suicide bombers”, maybe not as they know it in Israel, but a good few terrorists have blown themselves up through stupidity in South Africa.
But the lies (with a straight face) of Pogrund does not stop there. He continues by saying, …
"The oppressed people of South Africa attacked property, not white civilians."
I assume with “Oppressed people” he means “The Blacks”. This is nothing but slander, because he fails to provide any proof of this so called “oppression” that SA was exonerated from in The Hague in 1962.
Secondly its seems as if Pogrund is blissfull of the St. James massacre where blacks stormed into a white church and started killing people with AK47’s and handgrenades. He is also unaware of the Church Street bomb in Pretoria or the Magoos Bar bomb, the landmines on the farm roads, the bomb on the Johannesburg Station, etc.
Pogrund should be ashamed of himself for this blatant lie. I wonder how he will feel if I say, “Palestinian terrorists only attack buildings”.
The terror acts of the ANC from 1976 until 1987 are as follows:
• 12 Landmine explosions on farm roads, 30 others neutralised by the security forces.
• 113 Handgrenade attacks, a further 1273 found by the security forces
• 115 Limpid mines exploded, a further 409 neutralised by the security forces
• 7 Dynamite bombs explosion, 87 others defused and a further 85 neutralised in ANC depots.
• From April 1984 – April 1985, 60 ANC terror acts happened
• From April 1985 – April 1986, 193 ANC terror acts happened
• From 1976 until 1987, 43 Blacks and 35 Whites were murdered by ANC terror attacks alone.
Pogrund further says that South Africa relied heavily on Black labour for economic stability…
Well I wish Pogrund could then explain to us why we created the “Homelands” and actually assisted Blacks to return to their Homelands by creating factories and other job centers for Blacks in order for them to rule themselves. We did not need Blacks for our economy. In fact they were a hamstring strain on our economy, along with many social ills that we could do without.
Pogrund says that in SA Blacks were disenfranchised from voting and that in Israel everyone has the vote.
What laughable nonsense. Blacks could vote for their own governments in their own countries which had their own police forces and armies, trained by South Africa, free of charge. Indians and Coloureds were represented in parliament through a Tri-Cameral system.
This self opinionated, Pogrund, then carries on…
“In Israel, there was a perceived need for security, and competition for land and water and over religion. In South Africa, apartheid was fuelled by a belief in white superiority.”
If South African Whites believed in White superiority they would not have given Blacks their own countries to rule, they would simply have wiped them off the face of the earth.
Why bother building schools and hospitals for Blacks? Why bother building eight Black universities for Blacks? Why bother uplifting the living standard, their education level and their life-expectancy to the highest on the continent?
Pogrund finishes with...
"Occupation is ugly,"
"It brutalises the occupied as well as the occupiers. It resembles apartheid - both rely on subjugation and control - but call it something else."
Pogrund was also critical of the media for exaggerating conditions.
"To report the truth is sensational enough," he said.
So although the situation in Israel is no different and sometimes a lot worse than Apartheid South Africa, Pogrund wants it called “Something Else”.
What exactly that “Something else” is, he neglects to mention.
He then has the cheek, as an ex Anti-Apartheid journalist who heavily exaggerated the South African situation including his “breakthrough” report on Sharpeville, to attack the media for exaggerating the Israeli/Palestinian situation.
God, will this hypocrisy never end?
You can read Pogrund’s verbal flatulence here.
