Flu Grounds Peres from Attending Funeral for Mandela

President Shimon Peres is under the weather with the flu and will not be able to attend the memorial for Nelson Mandela in South Africa. His absence will make even more obvious the non-appearance of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, whose spokesmen said that complicated and expensive security arrangements are the reasons he will not be attending.

Nevertheless, one local newspaper headlined Monday that the Prime Minister “snubs” the memorial.

Peres reportedly has been weak lately because he was sick during his recent trip to Mexico and was caught napping on another official occasion. His office denied reports that his health is failing.

Approximately 70 heads of stated will be at the memorial for Mandela.

The Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, also will be there. The church is infamous for its protests of Sandy Hook victims, fallen soldiers, and “Fast and the Furious” star Paul Walker. The members; problems with Mandela is that he divorced and remarried. The church alleged that Mandela “pursued every lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life; he loved the praise of man more than the praise of God.”
