My Favorite Nelson Mandela Quote I have received quite a bit of hate mail and negative comments on my blog, the Jewish Press mirror blog, and Facebook for daring to call Nelson Mandela "a great man".
While it's true that he was not perfect and he made some comments that we might not appreciate, his accomplishments and contributions to ending apartheid in South Africa FAR outweigh any speeches or statements he made that supported or emboldened enemies of Israel or America.
I think that's a fair position. No one thinks he was perfect. But we do have to be honest about his overall contribution to society at large. It's not even close when we balance his verbal "sins" toward America and Israel against his monumental, world changing role in ending Apartheid. Not. Even. Close.

Falando de Heavy Metal:
John Lydon do SEX PISTOLS e sua mulher Nora tinham passagens para o vôo de Lockerbie que foi explodido por uma bomba terrorista em 1988. Perderam o vôo pois Nora não conseguiu embarcar suas bagagens a tempo. O FOUR TOPS também deveria estar neste vôo, porém o perderam por conta de uma sessão de gravações atrasada.
(Vou tomar banho ja volto com mais curiosidades.)

Freîderïçh Ngarèh: The July 1988 Shooting Down of Iran Air Flight 655 Never apologized to this date and gave $139 mlln for both the airline and victims. This compared to what Libya paid the Lockerbie Victims $3 blln was peanuts not forgetting they awarded a Medal to the Captain who shot down the passanger plane. Hail USA the Super power.

Title: Lockerbie, 25 Years On
That this Parliament notes that 21 December 2013 marks the 25th anniversary of the Lockerbie bombing when Pan-Am Flight 103 was destroyed over the town of Lockerbie with the loss of all lives on board, 243 passengers, 16 crew, and 11 Lockerbie residents; recognises the commitment of the people of Lockerbie to the memory of those lost, where at the Dryfesdale Cemetery a semi-circular stone wall in the garden of remembrance lists the names and nationalities of all the victims along with individual funeral stones and memorials and also recognises the continuing kindness and sensitivity to relatives of those killed while wishing to restore normality to their town; considers that, notwithstanding the conviction of Abdelbaset al Megrahi, this remains unfinished business, but, for the moment, simply wishes to express the continuing sorrow at so many lost lives.

Joanna Folino: from What Price Hollywood by Chris Hedges...The most moving memorial in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery is held in a small glass case containing the cremated remains of the actor David White and his son Jonathan White. David White played Larry Tate, the Machiavellian advertising executive, on the television show “Bewitched” and also had a long stage career. He was married to the actress Mary Welch, who died during a second childbirth in 1958. David was left to raise Jonathan. Next to the urns are pictures of the father and young boy. There is one of Jonathan in a graduation gown, the father’s eyes directed upward toward his son’s face. Jonathan died at 33, a victim of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. His father was devastated. He entered into a long period of mourning and seclusion. He died of a heart attack shortly before the two-year anniversary of his son’s death. The modest memorial is simple and poignant veneration of the powerful bond between a father and a child. It defies the celebrity culture around it. It speaks to other values, to loss, to grief, to mortality and to the awful fragility of life. It is a reminder in a sea of kitsch of the beauty of love.

Robert Vesco: Fuck the C.I.A. fuk the U.S. & British governments. Abdul Basset Al Megrahi was innocent of the Lockerbie bombing. He was framed, the evidence against him was unreliable & thats the real reason the Scottish government released him. The U.S. knows the REAL people behind it, George Habash & Ahmed Gebril with Iranian backing
