Mandela was blacklisted by Israel? Where did you get this particular snippet of BS from? Israel did not support the apartheid regime - Israel had trade and military cooperation projects with South Africa - which is a completely different thing. Had all of the Mideast and most of Africa not been hostile to Israel, perhaps it would not have needed South Africa's friendship. I remember in 1967 how South Africans, whites and blacks, praised Israel's victory. Chaim Weitzman's association with Jan Smuts was in the latter's capacity of the South African delegate to the British War Cabinet during World War I, who helped to secure the Balfour Declaration and had nothing to do with his apartheid stand in SOuth Africa.Desmond Tutu is a hypocrate of the first order - luminary indeed. And your nonsense about Gaza is green and clean is a sanitized version to the extreme. Who made up this little car sticker slogan? You? And what comparisons would Mandela refer to as odious? I made no comparisons.
