This ended all donations to Chabad. We all have forgotten that Mandela was a committed Communist who believed in world revolution. Mandela loved the Palestinians and especially Arafat. This is who Chabad wants to remember?
You are an ignoramus. Mandela was a practicing Christian and you can't be a Marxist and a Christian at the same time. Yes, he supported a Palestinian State, but so have the past four Israeli Prime Ministers. And I've seen nothing that indicates that he wanted revolutions anywhere other than in totalitarian regimes like the Apartheid State he fought for his entire life, a regime whose basic ideology and structure was developed by people who had openly supported the Nazis during World War II.
Shame on Chabad for revisionist history. Mandela and his ANC were communists supported by the Soviets. They were strong supporters of Castro, Kaddafi, Kumeini (Mandela layed a wreath at his grave), and of course, Yasser Arafat (yimach shemo). Mandela was a terrorist and didn't deny at his trial for treason that as head of the terrorist wing of the ANC he helped bomb some 160 public places killng scores of S.A. citizens. Even the ultra left Amnesty International refused to support him at the trial. And most important to us, under Mandela, the ANC was virulently anti Israel. Woe to "PC" Jewish Organizations.

He didn't just support a "palestinian state" he supported the PLO under Arafat and its terrorist campaign against Jews.

So Chabad, which has one of the most active Noachide campaigns, is celebrating the life of an atheist Communist terrorist and friend of Yassir Arafat. Sad…so very sad.

Charlie Hall You can't be a Marxist and a Xian at the same time? That's one of the stupidest things I've ever read.
