The article argues " Talking to Hamas makes sense for Israel if there are good reasons to believe that, in the long run, the organization will take the course of the ANC " Now, why on earth talka bout Hamas acting like the ANC if Israel's policies are not apartheid-like? But yes, as all thinking people know, Israel's policies towardsthe Palestinians are worse than the apartheid policies of South Africa at their monst monstrous. So, whenever some would-be pundit talks abouth a Mandela for the Middle East, I always reply "You want us to be Mandelas, so that you can justify being Wouter Bassons". Dr. Wouter Basson was the South African physician, ispired, according toy his own confessions, by American practices in dealing with troublesome resistance fighters, (notably in Vietnam, in Iran 1953 and 1979, in Patrice Lumumba's Congo, in Allende's Chile, and elsewhere), who organised the 'sanitized' mass killing of ANC-affiliated Umkhonto wa Sizwe and SWAPO freedom-fighters and had 200 of their bodies dumped into the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Namibia from a South African military helicopter. So, does Strenger want me to be Mandela so that he frees himself of any remorse he might have over his urge to be Dr. Wouter Basson himself?
