JewishPress Logo

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela passed away Thursday night in his Johannesburg home, at the age of 95.

Mandela spent 27 years in a South African jail, until he was freed in 1990. He served as president of the African National Congress (ANC) from 1991 to 1997.

In 1994, Mandela became the first black president of South Africa serving until 1999, and was an anti-apartheid icon.

  1. “Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for the eternity.” ~ Nelson Mandela 1996 Hamba Kahle Tata

  2. Ben II says:

    Mandela was an anti-white & anti-Israel bigot. Let’s not pretend he was anything else.

  3. Mr. Mandela was one of the most historic and righteous people of the twentieth century. Through his efforts and influence, there was no slaughter of anybody when when the white minority rule ended. I am aware of no evidence that he promoted or condoned bigotry directed at anybody. Your ignorance in maligning this most wonderful man says noting about him, but a lot about you.

  4. If Mandela was so great, why have most South African Jews left the country, as the result of his coming to power?
