Israeli Newspaper Claimed Mandela received weapons training from Mossad agents in Ethiopia


Top-secret archive document also reveals that Mandela was ‘familiar with the problems of Jewry and of Israel’ and that Israeli operatives tried to ‘make him a Zionist.’
Nelson Mandela, the former South African leader who died earlier this month, was trained in weaponry and sabotage by Mossad operatives in 1962, a few months before he was arrested in South Africa. During his training, Mandela expressed interest in the methods of the Haganah pre-state underground and was viewed by the Mossad as leaning toward communism.

These revelations are from a document in the Israel State Archives labeled “Top Secret.” The existence of the document is revealed here for the first time.

It also emerges that the Mossad operatives attempted to encourage Zionist sympathies in Mandela.

Mandela, the father of the new South Africa and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, led the struggle against apartheid in his country from the 1950s. He was arrested, tried and released a number of times before going underground in the early 1960s. In January 1962, he secretly and illegally fled South Africa and visited various African countries, including Ethiopia, Algeria, Egypt and Ghana. His goal was to meet with the leaders of African countries and garner financial and military support for the armed wing of the underground African National Congress.

2013 prison census: 211 journalists jailed worldwide; seven of them are in Ethiopia


Eskinder Nega, freelance

Imprisoned: September 14, 2011

Ethiopian security forces arrested Eskinder, a prominent online columnist and former publisher and editor of now-shuttered newspapers, on vague accusations of involvement in a terrorism plot. The arrest came five days after Eskinder published a column on the U.S.-based news website EthioMedia that criticized the government for misusing the country’s sweeping anti-terrorism law to jail prominent journalists and dissident intellectuals.

Shortly after Eskinder’s arrest, state television portrayed the journalist as a spy for “foreign forces” and accused him of having links with the banned opposition movement Ginbot 7, which the Ethiopian government designated a terrorist entity. In an interview with Agence France-Presse, government spokesman Shimelis Kemal accused the detainee of plotting “a series of terrorist acts that would likely wreak havoc.” Eskinder consistently proclaimed his innocence, but was convicted on the basis of a video of a public town hall meeting in which he discussed the possibility of a popular uprising in Ethiopia if the ruling party did not deliver democratic reform, according to reports.

“No political motive” behind Sudan’s support for Ethiopia’s Nile dam: Ambassador


Sudan Tribune (ADDIS ABABA) – Sudan’s support to Ethiopia’s controversial dam project is not politically driven, Sudan’s ambassador to Ethiopia said on Friday.

“We fully support the project because it benefits Sudan”, ambassador Abdul Rahman Sir-al-Katim told reporters in Addis Ababa, referring to the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), which is being built just 30kms away from the Sudanese border in Ethiopia’s western Benshangul Gumz region.

“We are not playing a political role”, he said, adding that “Sudan genuinely supports the project”.

The Sudanese diplomat said his country will continue to extend the necessary support to the multi-billion dollar project as long as Khartoum remains convinced that the project is beneficial to Sudan, Ethiopia and Egypt.

Egypt fears that the $4.6 billion hydropower plant, which Ethiopia is building on the Blue Nile, will diminish its share of the river’s water, arguing its historic water rights must be maintained.

ESAT and SBS Australia Radios should apologize for Mengistu Hailemariam Victims!!!! ኢሳት እና ኤስቢኤስ በመንግስቱ የተጨፈጨፉትን ቤተሰቦች ይቅርታ ሊጠይቁ ይገባል!!!

Mengistu Hailemaraim the butcher of Ethiopia has become “Madiba specialist” thanks to the SBS and ESAT Amharic Radio following the passing away of Madiba early this month.  Mengistu shamefully talked about the 100,000 dollar he gave to Madiba on his Ethiopian visit after his freedom. Mengistu was heard boasting about “tutoring” Madiba about the end of the cold war. How comes we have not learnt about such claim from any other source? Is this not the same claim Mengitu made about not killing a fly let alone humans during his 17 years of terror??
