"Zimbabwe and South Africa share a common world view..."
And what is that world view.
That of the witches in MacBeth : 'Fair is Foul and Foul is Fair'
That of Orwell's 1984" War is peace and peace is war. Slavery is freedom and freedom is slavery".

Remember Ronnie, Bob and Mahmoud:

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight! (NAS, Isaiah 5:20-21)"


The Freedom Of Expression Institute has double standards. In an article
for the Mail and Guardian (10/2/2006), Jane Duncan's colleague, Na'eem
Jeenah wrote: "That the real issue surrounding the Danish cartoons of

financial resources to put forward the in-depth legal / historical /
political analysis which would have been essential to back-up its case.
When taking on a government minister such as Kasrils, who has massive
power and influence, Geof Sifrin is "David versus Goliath" without

I also wonder why Ferial Haffajee ( editor of The Mail and Guardian) is
so reluctant to criticize Kasrils with regard to his support for
Mugabe? Her silence on this matter would bring down the walls of
Jericho ! It is a Faustian pact and Zimbabwe's tortured, starving
population is paying the price.

I have to conclude that a cynical abuse of power is being wielded in
South Africa to further a narrow political agenda focused on Israel's
