The Jewish leader is either afraid -- or has ordered something nasty in South Africa. The reason: So many world leaders to attend the memorial services for Mr. Mandela; so much risk if the bad guys launch a big and successful murderous attack on them in a city/country which doesn't have the security necessary to prevent it. Is the world ready to lose many leaders? Nope. Will it result in very bad times globally. Probably. It has been a century since the assassination of some minor royal resulted in the First World War in which millions upon millions died in battle, and an accompanying flu pandemic killed another 20 million -- mostly civilians -- at time there were only a large fraction of the people that inhabit earth today.
