A murderer, a terrorist, a Communist, who should never have been released from prison, allowed his country to commit genocide on White citizens, eat the achievements of Europeans to doom future generations and basically depend on Oprah for tennis shoes once in their now doomed lives.

If Obama really wishes to honor Mandela then he must follow the Anti-Apartheid Icon's example and bring sanctions and embargos against The Apartheid Policies of The State of Israel. What a fitting tribute to Mandela. But.... we all know Obama always turns on his friends and family. His words carry no validity! Mandela's hyphen between his Birth And Death represents a life of character, honor and sacrifice. What will Obamas hyphen represent? Mandela's hyphen SHINES! Time will tell us about Obama's.

That's a new one... a likely HIV/AIDS infected monster actually promoting filthy behaviors calling others infected. You do know, that your(pl) ugly behaviors have killed tens of thousands of innocent people in the US alone and hundreds of thousands elsewhere.

He was NO saint.

1 - "...in 1961 Mandela co-founded Umkhonto we Sizwe ("Spear of the Nation", abbreviated MK) with Sisulu and the communist Joe Slovo. Becoming chairman of the militant group, he gained ideas from illegal literature on guerilla warfare by Mao and Che Guevara...."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nelson_Mandela#R...

2 - "...Operating through a cell structure, the MK agreed to acts of sabotage to exert maximum pressure on the government with minimum casualties, bombing military installations, power plants, telephone lines and transport links at night, when civilians were not present. Mandela noted that should these tactics fail, MK would resort to 'guerilla warfare and terrorism'."

"...The stain of violence has even touched Mr. Mandela's wife, Winnie, and her personal bodyguard squad, the ''Mandela United Football Club.'' The brutal beating and stabbing death last year of James (Stompie) Mokhetsi Seipei, a 14-year-old black youth accused by the defendants of collaboration..."
