South African 2010 FIFA World Cup of shame
Given that South Africa was only recently liberated from the clutches of White European terror, it is shameful that South African President Jacob Zuma did not dedicate the FIFA World Cup 2010 to the end of the racist Apartheid regime and to all those who, during two centuries of brutal occupation, suffered grave injustices and lost their lives in their fight for freedom, when Nelson Mandela was allegedly enjoying himself playing football with other ‘terrorists’ on Robben Island.

Watching Britain’s Got Talent judge, Piers Morgan, in his documentary « Morgan's World Cup South Africa » shown on London ITV on Sunday 6th June 2010 at 10.00 p.m., one cannot help seeing the nauseating political propaganda behind it all, with all its twists and turns, misleading statements and downright lies. Firstly, he makes as if South Africa represents the whole of Africa, which was part of the politics of Apartheid, that is, to make South Africa the powerhouse and domineering force in the whole continent of Africa with its diverse peoples. Secondly, Piers described Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela and other freedom activists were held in solitary confinement for many years, and Soweto, a township well known for the massacre of Black men, women and children by European White racists, two of the centre pieces of his documentary, not for what they truly stand for, that is, as the epitome of racism, torture and murder, but as the cradle of ‘African football’ which he alleged came from the football played by prisoners on Robben Island, and for which he gave Nelson Mandela all the credit, the very Nelson Mandela described by former President Thabo Mbeki as « The White man’s favourite politician ».
In justification, Piers went on to demonstrate how the prisoners on Robben Island were refused permission to play football, how they (including prisoner and ‘terrorist’ Mandela) petitioned the Apartheid South African government, and how in the end they were allowed to play football, which allegedly was a source of inspiration for South African football which people would witness during the World Cup 2010. He makes no mention of the fact that the Robben Island was a penitentiary and a torture camp, not a leisure centre and a football ground, where prisoners were processed through various methods and where those who did not yield positive results disposed of. According to Piers, Robben Island should become a shrine of ‘South African football’ and not a shrine of the holocaust perpetrated by European racists in South Africa, a truth which he brushed under the carpet. His football gimmick is the biggest lie of all. In Fascist/Zionist ideology, the bigger the lie the more people would tend to believe it. This is exactly how people were led to believe that Black Africans were next of kin to animals deserving to be put in chains (See Midrash, Darwin ..).
My White South African colleague and friend, explains that, along side cricket, the national sport in Apartheid and post-Apartheid South Africa is rugby where the players were all Whites. Football was always the popular sport played by all South Africans, including Whites. Trying to focus on one leisure activity in Robben Island penitentiary in order to glorify South African football is totally misleading and untrue. Piers misleads people further when he associates the staging of World Cup 2010 in South Africa only with Nelson Mandela, the darling of the White European West.
In the concert held on 10th June 2010 in Soweto, the eve of the World Cup 2010 opening ceremony, viewers could witness performances by various artists, such as the Colombian Shakira, the American Alicia Keys and African stars Amadou & Mariam and Hugh Masekela, giving the World Cup event the kick-off it clearly deserves as a world sport which transcends all differences amongst people. But the choice of Soweto is no coincidence as the people of Soweto were never given justice. There was no Soweto Trial. Instead, they are given a concert of pop stars in the same vein as the Nelson Mandela Concert held in London, Wembley in 1990. When South African President Jacob Zuma hailed Nelson Mandela’s role in May 2004 in securing the right for South Africa to host the World Cup in 2010 and dedicated the World Cup to him, Jacob Zuma was merely making a political statement in favour of the « White man’s favourite politician ». He did not say exactly what Mandela’s role was. Some propagandists even describe Mandela as « South Africa’s World Cup Architect ». What did Mandela do so extraordinarily? Surely, all bidders must follow the same rules, or was FIFA bias in favour of South Africa? Who control FIFA ? The owners of the gold and diamond mines of South Africa ? In truth, like in the case of any other bidders, Nelson Mandela was merely part of the delegation that presented South Africa’s bid to the FIFA Executive in 2004. It was in that bidding process that South Africa was selected as the 2010 host after it defeated Morocco and Egypt. The deification of Nelson Mandela and the hijack of a world event such as the Football World Cup in his sole name can only be regarded as repugnant and obscene, and must be rejected by right-thinking people.
Given that South Africa was only recently liberated from the clutches of White European terror, it is shameful that South African President Jacob Zuma did not dedicate the FIFA World Cup 2010 to the end of the racist Apartheid regime and to all those who, during two centuries of brutal occupation, suffered grave injustices and lost their lives in their fight for freedom, when Nelson Mandela was allegedly enjoying himself playing football with other ‘terrorists’ on Robben Island, newly baptised the cradle of South African Football. Shame! Shame !
