This photo was taken by me as you enter Wartburg, South Africa. I spoke to the man who erected this billboard with crosses. His farming parents were attacked!The South African general election of 1994 was an election held in South Africa to mark the end of apartheid. Over 4000 SA farmers and their families have been murdered since 1994 and around 80 000 white SA citizens and an even larger chunk of black SA citizens have ALL been murdered by Marxist-indoctrinated black South African terrorists in the name of 'crime".


Since 1994, an estimated 68798 white South Africans have been murdered of which 4041 were commercial farmers (old stats). As the white population of SA was 4 434 697 in 1996, over 400 000 white South Africans have left the country, nearly 2% of white SA's have been murdered since 1987 and went into overdrive since 1994. Compare that to 0.02% of the black population during Apartheid. Black people have murdered 100 times more white people in the last 63 years.


In 2007 I had a gun held to my head whilst one strangled me and the other strangled my 10 year old niece. But it’s not PC to talk about this in SA today without being labelled a racist or marginalized for it... Without God we are nothing! We are both lucky to be alive today...

South African Tells of Genocide in Communist-dominated South Africa

Written by 

On Tuesday, October 2, 2012, the Fox Valley Conservative Forum, which meets regularly for a luncheon on Tuesdays in Appleton, Wisconsin, hosted a talk by South African Sonia Hruska (pictured). Hruska, who now lives in the United States, discussed the ongoing genocide against white people in her country under the largely communist-controlled ANC government of Jacob Zuma. 

Born in Victoria, South Africa, to a nontraditional Afrikaner family, with a right-wing father and a left-wing mother, Hruska would go on to work in politics as a consultant in the presidential administration of Nelson Mandela from 1994 to 2001. “I was the coordinator between the different spheres of government, civil society and state organizations, to actually implement the new government policies,” Hruska said.

As an early supporter of Mandela and the dream of a rainbow South Africa, Hruska truly believed in establishing a country where, regardless of the color of one’s skin or ethnicity, one could live in harmony and equality. Unfortunately, as she described, the opposite came true.

“After about six years,” Hruska said, “I realized something serious is wrong; the communist elements are taking over, it’s not what we were promised.” She explained the change that followed:

Whites were getting excluded through affirmative action and black economic empowerment. And at the same time, the Chinese got black status; so the whites were excluded and the Chinese were included under affirmative action as black. We now find that a white is not allowed to enter, for instance, into management, but a Chinese person may buy a mine or buy shares in a mine, and the same [is true] with banks.

As a business owner, I can get 25 years in jail time if I do employ a white person, for instance. It is totally ridiculous; you cannot have imagined that affirmative action could have gone so far.

What began as a quest to end the white discriminatory policy of apartheid has transformed into a kind of “reverse racism,” where “whites are now totally excluded from the economic sector,” according to Hruska.

The newly empowered African National Congress (ANC) government has slowly curtailed the rights of whites, and now some black South Africans have gone as far as committing atrocious killings of whites to the point where the situation has been classified as “genocide” by Genocide Watch. Over the last decade, at least 3,000 white farmers have been murdered in South Africa.

A favorite song among the ruling ANC is “Dubula iBhunu,” which means, “kill the farmers.” Former ANC Youth League chief Julius Malema was caught singing, “Kill the Boers! The Racists!” Even South African President Jacob Zuma sings this song to kill the farmers at ANC party functions, despite the song being labeled “hate speech” by a South African court. 

“‘Kill the Boer’ is a hate song. ‘Kill the Boer, kill the farmer,’ it’s actually instigating armed groups to carry out these attacks,” Hruska explained.

In a video shown at the Forum, a group of black South Africans were seen chanting:

Kill the Boers — our fathers.
Kill the Boers — young man.
Communist Party — victory.
Joe Slovo — our father.
Communist Party — victory.

Joe Slovo, who was born in Obeliai, Lithuania,  was the General-Secretary of the South African Communist Party (SACP) from 1984 to 1991. Slovo also served as the president of the ANC. In 1994 he joined Mandela’s cabinet, serving as minister of housing until he died in 1995. The current leader of the SACP is Blade Nzimande, who also serves in President Zuma’s cabinet as the minister of higher education and training.

In fact, Jacob Zuma originally joined the SACP in 1963, before becoming the leader of the ANC and the current president of South Africa. “[The] ANC is actually communist — we never realized it,” Hruska said.

Even now, Zuma remains a strong supporter of the SACP and the international communist movement. From December 3-5, 2010, the 12th International Meeting of Communist and Workers Parties was held in Tshwane, South Africa. President Zuma attended and delivered a speech. The Times of South Africa quoted Zuma urging a call for unity among the various official Communist parties in attendance: “A majority of communists part ways because once they believe in something they have a culture to believe in it seriously. Unity is crucial.” 

Zuma’s call for Communist Party unity was well received and reechoed amongst the many foreign party delegates present. Following the conference, Zuma left for a visit to Cuba, where he met with Fidel and Raul Castro, the leaders of the Communist Party of Cuba.

The widespread violence and killings in South Africa have led many victims to lose everything and go into hiding, with some living in makeshift shanty dwellings or in the fields by rivers. Out of the nearly four million whites living in South Africa, nearly one million live in economic destitution. 

Hruska described how in some cases, young white individuals, especially white females, because of their popularity, have been kidnapped and prostituted as sex slaves. Human trafficking is not illegal in South Africa and many young white teenage girls are drugged and sold for sex across the country. 

The police do nothing about this; in fact, in some cases they are involved in the prostitution of those women. “Those who do escape,” Hruska explained, “go into hiding seeing as there is no government assistance for them and because they are too embarrassed to tell their family or friends.”

Although a majority of those murdered, nearly 80 percent, Hruska said, are seniors (over the age of 60), the killers do not discriminate against age. “It’s heinous torture,” Hruska explained. “Even children as young as two months old get burned with hot water, get wrapped in newspaper and burned.”

She continued, “There is no easy way of saying exactly how these people are tortured. The standard would be a hot iron, electric iron, boiling water ... and these are carried out for hours.”

In the case of one family, Hruska detailed, the black mob broke into a home and waited for the white family to get home. When they arrived, they took them and raped the mother, in front of the father and son to see, and then once they killed her they killed the father, and finally the son by way of boiling water. 

The government denies that such murders are occurring or that they are aimed at the white farmers. Instead they are reported as robberies despite nothing being stolen, Hruska explained. “The murders occur now at a rate of at least one per day,” she said. 

After her talk, she stayed for an additional hour speaking to the people and answering questions. Her main message to the world, she told The New American, was, “Acknowledge it. Don’t deny it,” She realizes the difficulty in speaking about this unique situation, especially due to its racial dynamic and the politically-correct state of society. 

“You cannot criticize Mandela or the ANC; they are sacred cows,” Hruska explained, but she still does because the truth needs to be told, regardless of how difficult it may be for some to hear or accept. Her main objective is not only to create greater awareness about the genocide but also to help find the victims of rape and economic destitution and provide them with the necessary post-traumatic support and assistance to help them cope with the trauma and either rejoin society, or leave the country if they so desire. 

Sadly, much of this has gone unreported in the mainstream media and that which has made press headlines is often heavily sanitized. Hruska plans to continue doing her part to create further awareness and help victims. By the time the world and media acknowledge the atrocities it may be too late for some.

Principles and Considerations required to understand the present situation



An in-depth discussion of some important Considerations and Principles that are important in understanding the South African situation and that collectively, are driving South Africa towards economic collapse followed by a bloody revolution in which most of the population will be brutally killed



Greetings,

In the years leading up to the writing of the book "South Africa -- The REAL Issues" I analyzed various aspects of the situation and wrote a variety of articles, some for publication, some were published and some were not but they are useful in understanding the present situation

These are collated in the sections on Considerations and Principles and form further elements of the mosaic of information that is necessary to understand the South African situation and the conclusions that I have drawn

These components are summarized below and the full detail is published on the corresponding web pages

http://www.south-africa-the-real-issues.org/Principles.aspx

http://www.south-africa-the-real-issues.org/Considerations.aspx



Some Important Principles

http://www.south-africa-the-real-issues.org/Principles.aspx

· Creating Wealth in the New South Africa

This article discusses the importance of technology capability and effective application of technology in building an economy and discusses how the ANC is breaking down this capability

· What is an Economy? – REALLY?

This article discusses how an economy is a symbiotic collection of human beings led by the 2% of the population who understand how to create wealth and which is not capable of being redistributed

The article explains how technology, methodology and therefore engineering are central capabilities of a thriving economy and how attitude and morale, driven by words can make or break an economy

It considers how a lean and efficient government stimulates an economy and how early childhood experience creates the foundation for an economy that education builds on

This first principles understanding of an economy is fundamental to understanding why the actions of the ANC are driving the South African economy towards collapse

· The Fundamentals of Mining

This article, written to leaders in the South African mining industry after ANC attacks on the mining industry, debunks myths around what drives mining and sets out in simple terms how mining contributes to the economy and stresses that demands on the industry from ignorant ANC members will trigger collapse in time

· What is the Purpose of Government?

This article sets out the basic elements of what government should be doing in contrast to what the South African governement IS doing which is fundamentally to do what individuals cannot do

This includes justice, policing, prisons and defence, legislation that is conducive to peaceful and successful commercial endeavour, national infrastructure that works, high level well being of the entire population, education, arts and culture, etc

It is stressed that Government should be a facilitator of prosperity and that Government leaders should be people with considerable knowledge and experience in creating wealth

It is pointed out that all of these factors are NOT being supplied by the ANC government and that this is contributing to looming economic collapse

· Why South Africa could NOT have Grown much more before 1980
There are major misconceptions regarding beliefs that Apartheid cramped the South African economy and that the lifting of Apartheid massively stimulated the economy

This article discusses how the South African economy could NOT have grown much more than it did prior to 1980 and how the growth of the last 20 years is, in part, an artificial bubble that will soon burst



Other Considerations

http://www.south-africa-the-real-issues.org/Considerations.aspx

This last section of analysis of the South African situation comprises a loose collection of other elements of information that seemed appropriate in supporting the conclusions of the book and website

· Did you know? – things that are breaking

This list of 100 diverse examples of things that are breaking in South Africa is a sobering catalogue of how the failures of the ANC Government are fundamentally undermining the sustainability of the South African economy and inexorably pushing the economy towards collapse

· An Alternative Summing up

This article is a draft summing up that preceded the final summing up and presents the information in a somewhat different view -- it summarizes a number of factors starting with the exodus of wealth creators and wealth sustainers from South Africa, a discussion of the widespread existence of Unconscious Incompetence and points out that there was NOTHING of material technical or economic capability in South Africa before the Europeans arrived, something that Jacob Zuma seems to enjoy displaying publicly in his displays of primitive tribal ritual while dressed in nothing but animal skins.

This is contrasted with the advanced technology that existed in Europe at the time the Europeans started to really impact South Africa

The article points out that by blaming Apartheid people ignore the obvious and that the ANC Government is becoming dysfunctional at all levels leading to the foundations of the economy starting to crumble. this includes the catastrophic loss of European knowledge and experience and the out of control African population

· Why is the Johannesburg Stock Exchange so Strong?

This section examines why the Johannesburg Stock Exchange is so strong and postulates that massive capital inflows into the hands of naive and ill informed black hands is leading to unwise investment that is driving up share prices

The potential for a sudden dramatic collapse of the market is considerable

· Letter to the Editor of a Professional Journal

This letter was written to the Editor of a Professional Journal, an Indian, after he published a piece attacking European Engineers for discriminating against African graduates

The article systematically demolishes the arguments in the published piece and illustrates how the false perceptions that are widely articulated by liberals and non-European people in South Africa are fundamentally flawed -- this is an important piece to read if you are finding it hard to rebut some of the common false accusations that are made against Europeans in South Africa

· Letter to the Editor of an Afrikaans Newspaper about Zuma singing Shoot the Boer

This letter, written to the Editor of a South African Afrikaans newspaper, presents an overview of the issues relating to the video footage of President Jacob Zuma singing "the Cabinet will shoot the Boer with machine guns" and points out what a massive breach of trust this represents and how it violates the Presidents Oath of Office -- a central message of this website

· Why are Europeans NOT much more Energized in Defending themselves?

This article examines why there is so little robust push back against the ANC by Europeans, factors such as fatigue, a stupour of trust, disbelief, the habit of compensating for African under performance, busy surviving, lack of understanding, denial, wanting peace, fatalistic tendences and FEAR are all factors that are causing Europeans to be reluctant to take active stances against what is happening

My own experience in terms of hostile emails in response to this website help me to understand why most people just keep quiet

· Why did the ANC only really have an impact from the late 1940’s?

This article examines the reality that the ANC was and is largely incompetent and was inventing much of what they claimed against whites in the decades after their formation but how the introduction of statutory Apartheid and other actions by the Afrikaners in particular triggered massive antagonism amongst liberal Europeans in Britain and Europe with the result that liberal whites and others mobilized to support the ANC in a way that would NOT have happened otherwise

Without this support the ANC would never have amounted to much

· Lessons from Dingaan and Retief -- Treachery

This article analyzes the treachery of Dingaan towards Piet Retief and suggests that treachery of Africans towards Europeans is a fundamental element of race relations that is playing out dramatically in South Africa today as the accord reached in the early 1990's is slowly but systematically disregarded and violated

· The Battle of Blood River – a Case Study in African Fundamentals

This article examines the Battle of Blood River from a different perspective and suggest that the victory was more a consequence of European intellect and competence versus African incompetence than it was the result of some dramatic divine intervention

From this the article draws lessons that enable us to better understand the conduct of the ANC today and better understand how massive uncontrolled violence that totally ignores obvious negative consequences and fueled by witchcraft and bloodlust is only a matter of years away

· What IS Democracy?

This article examines the basic tenets of Democracy and explains how these have been violated in South Africa -- it also explains why Democracy cannot work in Africa and why it will ultimately lead to the destruction of South African society

· What the British Brought

This article examines some of the positive and negative factors that Britain and British people have contributed to the South African situation and asks whether Britain, as the dominant colonial power in South African history, will intervene to make a way of escape for the millions of European South Africans who currently have NO way of getting out of the country

· A Prophetic View – “The Almighty Speaks on South Africa”

This message, given on 7 January 2012, clearly sets out the displeasure of the Almighty with the action of the South African President and the ANC in leading the country into Ancestor worship -- that is demon worship and predicts that destruction will come on South Africa

More recently the Almighty has said that there IS a way of escape if 100,000 adult (primarily European) believers will gather in Pretoria on 16th December 2013 and fast and pray, repent and cry out for deliverance

Failing this the destruction foretold in the prophecy is almost certain to come to pass

Conclusion

This webpage has presented a consolidated view of some little understood realities about the South African situation and the impacts of ANC policies and action.

It is time to realize that there are much more complex fundamentals at play in South Africa and stop blaming Apartheid for the fundamental deficiencies and weaknesses of Africa

It is time to recognize that it is ONLY through the concerted effort of European South Africans that South Africa has any hope of avoiding massive destruction

It is also time to recognize that the ANC and Africans generally lack the knowledge and experience to run South African and are therefore in the process of destroying it

It is time for all those who can see the truth to stand up and be counted and, in particular, for European governments around the world to change their stance on South Africa as the pending economic collapse will ultimately result in massive poverty and genocide that will shock the world

It is perhaps still possible to take measures to prevent this now but time is rapidly running out



Please visit the rest of this site for more information

At http://www.south-africa-the-real-issues.org/Actions/Getthemessageacross.aspx you will find guidelines in terms of Public Relations and Marketing practics to apply in getting an appeal for help out to the Western World in a constructive manner building on the European heritage of the people who are being murdered and forced out of the economy

At http://www.south-africa-the-real-issues.org/Actions/ContactNewspapersaroundtheWorld.aspx you will find over 200 email addresses for Western Newspapers and suggestions with regard to contacting them

At http://www.south-africa-the-real-issues.org/Actions/ContactDiplomaticMissions.aspx you fill find email addresses of Embassies and Diplomatic Missions in South Africa so that you can also contact them

and at http://www.south-africa-the-real-issues.org/Actions/ContactEuropeanParliamentarians.aspx for email addresses for all European Parliamentarians

In these latter cases I suggest you appeal for help to stop the murder of Europeans in South Africa and also for relaxation of immigration and citizenship laws in European countries for Europeans who want to leave South Africa

I met recently with "Gazza", a South African living abroad who wants to produce a TV Documentary with regard to the South African situation drawing on this book and website for information -- he is looking for committed South Africans to sponsor the programme -- if you can help financially or in any other way to do your bit to make a difference and reach policy makers and politicians in the countries of Europe and elsewhere you can contact him on z6200-mail@yahoo.co.uk

The Almighty has also recently called a prophet to work to assemble 100,000 adult believers in Pretoria on the 16th of December, the Day of the Covenant 2013 to cry out of revelation of why this judgment has come on the people of South Africa, repenting of sins and errors and crying out to the Almighty for miraculous deliverance -- this number of people is required in order to counter the Satanic, demonic and witchcraft forces that are arraigned to bring total destruction to South Africa

Remember that even if YOU can get out, there are millions of whites, coloureds and Asians who CANNOT, we need International Pressure to bring the ANC to book before it is too late

Thank you for reading this

Warm regards

South Africa Facing White Genocide, Total Communist Takeover

Written by 

While most of the world refuses to acknowledge what is happening in largely communist-controlled South Africa, the non-profit group Genocide Watch declared last month that preparations for genocidal atrocities against white South African farmers were underway and that the early phases of genocide had possibly already begun. In the long run, Genocide Watch chief Dr. Gregory Stanton explained, powerful communist forces also hope to abolish private-property ownership and crush all potential resistance.

According to experts and official figures, at least 3,000 white farmers in South Africa, known as Boers, have been brutally massacred over the last decade. Many more, including children and even infants, have also been raped or tortured so savagely that mere words could not possibly convey the horror. And the problem is growing worse, international human rights monitors and South African exiles say. 

The South African government, dominated by the communist-backed African National Congress (ANC), has responded to the surging wave of racist murders by denying the phenomenon, implausibly claiming that many of the attacks are simply regular crimes. Despite fierce criticism, authorities also stopped tracking statistics that would provide a more accurate picture of what is truly going on in the so-called “Rainbow Nation.”

In many cases, the murders are simply classified as “burglaries” and ignored, so the true murder figures are certainly much higher than officials admit. The police, meanwhile, are often involved in the murders or at least the cover-ups, multiple sources report. A white South African exile living in the United States told The New American that when victims are able to defend themselves or apprehend the would-be perpetrators, many of the perpetrators are found to be affiliated with the ruling ANC or its youth wing.  

Experts are not buying the government’s cover-up. "The farm murders, we have become convinced, are not accidental," said Dr. Stanton of Genocide Watch during a fact-finding mission to South Africa last month. It was very clear that the massacres were not common crimes, he added — especially because of the absolute barbarity used against the victims. "We don't know exactly who is planning them yet, but what we are calling for is an international investigation that will try and determine who is planning these murders."

Indeed, most honest analysts concede that the thousands of brutal killings and tens of thousands of attacks are part of a broader pattern. And according to Dr. Stanton, who was also involved in the anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa and has decades of experience examining genocide and communist terror, the trend points toward a troubled future for the nation.

“Things of this sort are what I have seen before in other genocides,” he said of the murdered white farmers, pointing to several examples including a victim’s body that was left with an open Bible on top and other murder victims who were tortured, disemboweled, raped, or worse. “This is what has happened in Burundi, it’s what happened in Rwanda. It has happened in many other places in the world.”  

Speaking in Pretoria at an event organized by the anti-communist Transvaal Agricultural Union, Dr. Stanton also slammed the effort to dehumanize whites in South Africa by portraying them as “settlers.” The label is meant to paint Afrikaner white farmers — descendants of Northern Europeans who arrived centuries ago — as people who do not belong there.

It is the same process that happened prior to the infamous genocide against Christian Armenians in Turkey, Stanton explained. The dehumanization phenomenon also occurred against the Jewish people in Germany under the National Socialist (Nazi) regime of mass-murderer Adolf Hitler, well before the Nazi tyrant began implementing his monstrous “final solution.”

Unfortunately, South Africa might be next in line, experts believe. "Whenever you have that kind of dehumanization ... you have the beginning of that downward spiral into genocide," Stanton noted, adding that the situation in South Africa had already moved beyond that stage. The next phase before extermination, which began years ago in South Africa, is organizing to actually carry it out.

"We are worried that there are organized groups that are in fact doing that planning," Stanton continued during his speech. "It became clear to us that the [ANC] Youth League was this kind of organization — it was planning this kind of genocidal massacre and also the forced displacement of whites from South Africa."

Genocide Watch raised its alert level for South Africa from stage five to stage six — the eighth and final stage is denial after the fact — when then-ANC Youth League boss Julius Malema began openly singing a racist song aimed at inciting murder against white South African farmers: "Shoot the Boer" and “Kill the Boer.” Described by the anti-genocide group as a “racist Marxist-Leninist,” Malema has also been quoted as saying that “all whites are criminals” and threatening to steal white farmers’ land by force.

After the calls to genocide made international headlines, the South African Supreme Court ruled that the song advocating murder of whites was unlawful hate speech. Incredibly, the President of South Africa, ANC’s Jacob Zuma, then began singing it early this year too. Since then, the number of murdered white South African farmers has been growing each month, according to reports. Other senior government officials, meanwhile, have openly called for “war.”

"This is the kind of talk that of course is not only pre-genocidal, it also comes before crimes against humanity," Dr. Stanton said, urging everyone to remember that they are all members of the human race. "Those who would be deniers, and who would try to ignore the warning signs in this country, I think are ignoring the facts."   

There is also increasing “polarization,” where the target population — white farmers in this case — and even moderates are portrayed as an “enemy,” Stanton explained about the march to genocide. And that phenomenon is ever-more apparent in South Africa, leading Genocide Watch to classify South Africa as being close to the final stages of genocide in July of this year. 

The issue of land distribution, which has become one of the key drivers of the downward spiral, is also among the greatest concerns. The white minority in South Africa still owns much of the land despite ANC promises to redistribute it to blacks. But the re-distribution that has occurred — like in neighboring Zimbabwe — has largely resulted in failure.

Despite the atrocious track record so far, extremists including elements of the ANC-dominated government are now hoping to expropriate land from white farmers more quickly, with some factions even arguing that it should be done with no compensation at all. And the communist agenda, like virtually everywhere else where forcible land redistribution has been adopted, has even broader goals.

“Whatever system of land tenure is adopted in South Africa, the communists — in the long run — have in mind to take away all private property. That should never be forgotten,” Stanton warned, noting that he had lived in communist-run countries before. "Every place you go where communists have taken over, they take away private ownership because private ownership gives people the power — the economic power — to oppose their government. Once you have taken that away, there is no basis on which you can have the economic power to oppose the government."

Meanwhile, the South African government is stepping up efforts to disarm the struggling white farmers, too — stripping them of their final line of defense. As has consistently been the case throughout history, of course, disarmament is always a necessary precursor to totalitarianism and the eventual mass slaughter of target groups. In fact, arms in the hands of citizens are often the final barrier to complete enslavement and even extermination.

“The government has disbanded the commando units of white farmers that once protected their farms, and has passed laws to confiscate the farmers’ weapons,” Genocide Watch noted on its website in an update about South Africa posted last month. “Disarmament of a targeted group is one of the surest early warning signs of future genocidal killings.”

The exile who spoke with TNA said that many of the guns confiscated from whites by officials have later been found at the gruesome murder scenes of white farmers. Even mere possession of an “unregistered” or “unlicensed” weapon — licenses have become extraordinarily difficult to obtain, if not impossible — can result in jail time. And in South Africa, especially for white farmers, that is a virtual death sentence, with widespread rape and HIV infections being the norm. 

Dr. Stanton promised the Afrikaners that he would be visiting the U.S. Embassy and bringing the issue to the attention of world leaders. However, he also urged them not to give up their guns and to continue resisting against the communist “ideology” espoused by so many of the political and party leaders that now dominate the nation’s coercive government apparatus. 

The United Nations defines genocide as "the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group." The term also includes actions other than simply wholesale slaughter, though. According to the UN, among the crimes that can constitute genocide are causing serious harm to members of a specific minority group, deliberately inflicting conditions on the minority aimed at bringing about its destruction in whole or in part, seeking to prevent births among the targeted population, and forcibly transferring minority children to others.

Activists and exiles argue that many of those conditions have already been met — and any single one can technically constitute genocide if it is part of a systematic attempt to destroy a particular group. Meanwhile, experts say that the government is encouraging the problem, actively discriminating against whites, and in many cases even facilitating the on-going atrocities.

Of course, this would not be the first time a similar tragedy has happened in Southern Africa. When Marxist dictator Robert Mugabe seized power in Zimbabwe (formerly known as Rhodesia, once one of the richest countries on the continent), he began a ruthless war against the white population and his political opponents.

The country promptly spiraled into chaos and mass starvation under the Mugabe regime when the tyrant “redistributed” the farms and wealth to his cronies, who of course knew nothing about farming. The regime murdered tens of thousands of victims, and estimates suggest that millions have died as a direct result of Mugabe’s Marxist policies.

Whites who refused to leave their property during the “redistribution” were often tortured and killed by the regime or its death squads. With Mugabe still in charge, the tragic plight of Zimbabwe continues to worsen today. But the mass-murdering despot is still held in high regard by many senior officials in the ANC. 

Not all South Africans — especially city dwellers — are convinced that there is an on-going genocide in their country, or even that one may be coming. Indeed, the vast majority of blacks and whites would simply like to live in peace with each other, and there are plenty of other problems facing South Africa at the same time. However, virtually everyone agrees that without solutions, the precarious situation in the “Rainbow Nation” will continue to deteriorate, going from bad to worse.

Many activists seeking to draw attention to the issue are calling on European governments and the United States to immediately begin accepting especially vulnerable white refugees from South Africa as a high priority. There are less than five million whites in the country, about 10 percent of the population, down from almost a quarter decades ago. Analysts say that giving them asylum, however, may prove tough politically — partly because it could expose the precious establishment myths of Nelson Mandela and his ANC as being “heroic” so-called “freedom fighters.”

Unsurprisingly, the establishment press has barely reported a word about the looming potential calamity. And by the time the world media finally catch on, many analysts worry that it might be too late.

1. A warm welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit our page.  Please note that we are raising awareness for a humanitarian crisis and you may find it disturbing.  The Gallery contains evidence of actual victims and we wish to warn that sensitive viewers should note that it is profoundly disturbing.


While the world has been both vocally and financially supportive of a peaceful transition to a democratic South Africa, it is with dismay that we report that despite stated and rewarded commitment to reconciliation, the South African European Minority (SAEM) has been the subject of sustained brutal physical, cultural and economic reprisals for nearly 20 years.  We trust in the integrity of people’s values to oppose this assault on the SAEM with the same vigilance with which they supported a peaceful transition.

The mere consideration that such a scenario is playing out, poses a challenge to the human rights community on many levels, as many were part of the anti-apartheid movement.  It challenges the integrity of convictions and the collective ethical responsibility not to cloud our judgment with historic alliances.  Notwithstanding that we are morally obliged to embrace a clear and rational identifiable moral order, whose legitimacy precedes social and historical conditions and afford human rights to all peoples and at all times.

Whilst governments are responsible for protecting people within their territory, we believe the ANC lost their moral compass and betrayed Nelson Mandela’s vision for a peaceful Rainbow Nation.  The South African government is not only unwilling to fulfill their responsibilities to protect the European minority from genocide but are actively advocating it and has been unresponsive and defensive about remedial requests and attempts.  Any effort to communicate is vividly opposed and held as an attempt to undermine the democratic rights of the majority.

The UN World Summit in 2005 endorsed the ‘Responsibility to Protect’[1] or ‘R2P’ framework which confirms the responsibility of the international community to protect and intervene when a government fails to protect its people from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity, as is the case here.  Genocide Watch, a strategic partner of F4H, has been warning of this potential catastrophe for a decade.  It is however clear the United Nations are not going to act, notwithstanding that a leader in the genocide prevention community is warning that yet another humanitarian disaster that can be prevented, is being ignored and enabled by the international community.

On a recent fact finding mission to South Africa, Dr Stanton, President of Genocide Watch, determined that urgent intervention is required and undertook to establish a Commission of Enquiry to investigate and take action.  Dr Gregory H. Stanton is globally recognized and legendary for his contribution in the area of genocide studies.


2. About

Friends 4 Humanity (F4H) was established by a group of concerned Christian human rights activists in August 2012, following the release of the report of a fact finding mission to South Africa by Genocide Watch.  This disturbing below outlines the gross human rights abuses the South African European Minority (SAEM) suffers at the hands of the ANC government in post-Apartheid South Africa.

Why are Afrikaner farmers being murdered in South Africa?

by Leon Parkin & Gregory H. Stanton, President – Genocide Watch
14 August 2012The following report is the result of an intensive personal inquiry in South Africa conducted July 23 -27, 2012. 

Deliberate inaction of the South African Government has weakened rural security structures, facilitating Afrikaner farm murders, in order to terrorize white farmers into vacating their farms, advancing the ANC/S. A. Communist Party’s New Democratic Revolution (NDR.)

The South African Government for the last 18 years has adopted a policy of deliberate government abolition and disarmament of rural Commandos run by farmers themselves for their own self-defense.  The policy has resulted in a four-fold increase in the murder rate of Afrikaner commercial farmers.  This policy is aimed at forced displacement through terror.  It advances the goals of the South African Communist Party’s New Democratic Revolution (NPR), which aims at nationalization of all private farmland, mines, and industry in South Africa.  Disarmament, coupled with Government removal of security structures to protect the White victim group, follows public dehumanization of the victims, and facilitates their forced displacement and gradual genocide.

Afrikaner farm owners are being murdered at a rate four times the murder rate of other South Africans, including Black farm owners. Their families are also subjected to extremely high crime rates, including murder, rape, mutilation and torture of the victims. South African police fail to investigate or solve many of these murders, which are carried out by organized gangs, often armed with weapons that police have previously confiscated.  The racial character of the killing is covered up by a SA government order prohibiting police from reporting murders by race.  Instead the crisis is denied and the murders are dismissed as ordinary crime, ignoring the frequent mutilation of the victims’ bodies, a sure sign that these are hate crimes.

However, independent researchers have compiled accurate statistics demonstrating convincingly that murders among White farm owners occur at a rate of 97 per 100,000 per year, compared to 31 per 100,000 per year in the entire South African population, making the murder rate of White SA farmers one of the highest murder rates in the world.

Incitement to genocide is a crime under the International Convention for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, to which South Africa is a state-party.

The ANC government has promoted hate speech that constitutes “incitement to genocide.”  The President of the ANC Youth League, Julius Malema, revived the “Kill the Boer, Kill the Farmer” hate song at ANC rallies, until it was declared to be hate speech by a South African judge, and Malema was enjoined from singing it.  For other reasons, Malema was later removed as ANCYL President.  His followers continue to sing the hate song, and the Deputy President of the ANCYL has called for “war,” against “white settlers.”

After the judge’s injunction to halt singing of the hate song, even the President of South Africa, ANC leader Jacob Zuma, himself, began to sing the “Shoot the Boer” song.  Since Zuma began to sing the hate song on 12 January 2012, murders of White farmers increased every month through April 2012, the last month for which there are confirmed figures.

There is thus strong circumstantial evidence of government support for the campaign of forced displacement and atrocities against White farmers and their families.  There is direct evidence of SA government incitement to genocide.

Forced displacement from their farms has inflicted on the Afrikaner ethnic group conditions of life calculated to bring about its complete or partial physical destruction, an act of genocide also prohibited by the Genocide Convention.

High-ranking ANC government officials who continuously refer to Whites as “settlers” and “colonialists of a special type” are using racial epithets in a campaign of state-sponsored dehumanization of the White population as a whole.  They sanction gang-organized hate crimes against Whites, with the goal of terrorizing Whites through fear of genocidal annihilation.

What is dehumanization?

The process of dehumanization has the effect of numbing and decommissioning the moral sentiments of the perpetrator group.  Polarization creates the “us vs. them” mentality, in SA the “Indigenous Black People” group versus the “White Settler Colonialist” group.

ANC leaders publicly incite followers using racial epithets.  By dehumanizing the White victim group, members of the perpetrator group exclude the victim group from their circle of moral obligation not to kill its members.  Dehumanization is the systematic, organized strategy of leaders to remove the inherent natural human restraints of people not to murder, rape, or torture other human beings.  Taking the life of a dehumanized person becomes of no greater consequence than crushing an insect, slaughtering an animal, or killing a pest.

The ANC denies its genocidal intentions.  But the South African Communist Party is more open about its plan to drive Whites out of South Africa. Gugile Nkwinti, South Africa’s Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform has declared that all “colonial struggles are about two things: ‘repossession of the land and the centrality of the indigenous population.’” Mister Nkwinti is confirming the goals of the South African Communist Party’s New Democratic Revolution (NDR) and stating that the colonial struggle is not yet over in post-1994 South Africa.  He is saying that Whites are unwelcome “settler colonialists” with no role to play in South Africa’s future.

The Transvaal Agricultural Union, Freedom Front, Democratic Alliance, IFP, Afriforum and numerous other organizations have on a regular basis called for the South African Government to declare farm murders and rural policing a South African government priority.   The President, who should be the guardian of the constitutional rights of all the people, has deliberately ignored these calls for action.

Former President F. W. De Klerk, on 25 July 2012 during the De Klerk Foundation’s Crossroads conference correctly accused the current generation of ANC leaders of cynically manipulating racial sensitivities for political ends.  In our analysis, the current ANC leadership also publicly uses incitement to genocide with the long-term goal of forcibly driving out or annihilating the White population from South Africa.

This report has explained the rationale for the deliberate inaction of South African government functionaries to prevent, prosecute, or stop the murders of Afrikaner farmers.  As a group, Afrikaner farmers stand in the way of the South African Communist Party’s goal to implement their Marxist/Leninist/Stalinist New Democratic Revolution and specifically the confiscation of all rural land belonging to White Afrikaner farmers.

Genocide Watch is moving South Africa back to Stage 6, the Preparation stage in the genocidal process.

3. Background

The modern state of South Africa is a conglomerate of ethnically and religiously diverse people.  The peaceful transition from apartheid to democracy was viewed a huge success globally and Nelson Mandela’s dream of a non-racial rainbow nation was finally a reality.  However, when the ANC took power, they were confronted with the problem of successfully governing a multi-ethnic state while consolidating power and governing efficiently.

Nelson Mandela and Muammar Gaddafi, celebrating a long close relationship as allies.

The ANC immediately drew upon their militant struggle disposition for managing ethnic politics in a manner similar to that of their communist allies, such as Fidel Castro and Muammar Gaddafi.  Nelson Mandela was a committed communist and wrote the manuscript: How to be a good communist. 

Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro, long standing allies

They embarked on a rapid transformation process and replaced key private sector, civic and civil figures with political allies.  They then implemented Affirmative Action (AA) and Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) legislation which translated into widespread corruption and nepotism.

The true social cost of this rapid transformation process is now becoming evident as the poor got poorer and leading to social unrest.   This social friction paves the way for unscrupulous political aspirants such as Julius Malema, to a point where voices of concern are rising from both within the ANC and international allies.  It is within this context that an environment ripe for genocide of the South African European Minority (SAEM) developed.  Their defenses disarmament and economic marginalization led to the displacement of approximately a million people and the brutal rape, torture and murder of tens of thousands.  The true magnitude can only be established through an independent investigation, such as the Stanton Commission of Inquiry (SCI).

The West selected to turn a blind eye to the human rights situation in South Africa, encouraging instead the continued territorial integrity and stability of nation states most of which they had helped to create.  It is with implied blessing from the global community that the ANC is able to inflict grievous harm on not only the very people who were supposedly liberated but also the SAEM.  Notwithstanding that they also have a responsibility to protect when the state fails to as per the R2P framework .

US First Lady Michelle Obama has met South Africa’s former President Nelson Mandela, on the first day of her two nation-tour of southern Africa.

In view of the collective brutal assault on the SAEM, we need to take the South African Constitution’s founding principles, at face value as well as our association and commitment with the process that led to the adoption of a non-racial Constitution.  Especially in terms of Section 36, that provides that “the rights in the Bill of Rights may be limited only in terms of a law of general application to the extent that the limitation is reasonable and justifiable in an open and democratic society based on human dignity, equality and freedom…”

Former president Bill Clinton helps Nelson Mandela celebrate his 94th birthday

It is clear that the assaults on the SAEM are not strategies of redistribution of wealth or empowerment of the previously oppressed minority, but instead a sustained and coordinated campaign aimed at the destruction of this minority group, as has been the case of “retributive” genocide in Rwanda. The gross human rights abuses witnessed since 1992, when European South Africans voted overwhelmingly in Referendum to continue with the transformation from Apartheid to Democracy have been attributed to a ‘third force’, ‘Xenophobia’ and ‘crime’.  In fact, the South African President persistently claims that it is just crime when confronted with the brutality of these heinous acts.

However, the brutal murder and torture of the remaining members of the minority in South Africa remain unchecked and are even encouraged through blatant hate speech by the current President of South Africa himself. In recent months, despite a high court judgment to the contrary, the President continues to sing “Kill the Boer” at political gatherings.  This particular song is reminiscent of the Pan African Congress’, “One settler, one bullet”.  Not only has inflammatory speech proven to be incitement to genocide but also proven detrimental to any prospects for national reconciliation and the peaceful transition process initiated 20 years ago.

As of today, indications are that in excess of 4000 members of the Commercial European farming community have been murdered since 1992. That equates to roughly one murder, every second day, in this subsection of the minority alone, notwithstanding the unknown amount of murders and attacks on the rural and city communities.  The situation has been further exacerbated by expropriations, land invasions and strangling of financial resources available to the European minority.

Even if allowance is made for a substantial margin of error in recorded estimates, there can be no doubt that this is just the tip of the iceberg, as the government institutionalized various mechanisms to prohibit the collection of credible data and in many cases data have been perverted by the police themselves. The nature of the evidence is profoundly disturbing, not only for the victims, but also for the volunteers who have taken it upon themselves to collect credible data. They are working tirelessly and have to absorb large quantities of distressing information without any support and with tremendous opposition.  Even in view of this consorted effort, the system to collect data remains fragmented and informal.

We are not suggesting in any way that the SA Constitution is inadequate in terms of its provision for a human rights framework, in fact, it is rated as one the most democratic constitutions in the world.  However, not only are these atrocities in direct contradiction with the said constitution, but also the denial by the government that any minorities exist in South Africa and they should not expect any special privileges.  This is in clear contradiction with Article 27 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights  which explicitly states that the right to identity is directly related to minority protection.  Not only is the government denying the European Minority their identity, but they wish to indicate that basic human rights are special privileges, again in contradiction with International Human Rights Law and the Declaration of human Rights.

4. Introduction

Twenty years ago, the regime of Apartheid ended in South Africa, when the European minority (who are descendants of immigrants from England, Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany and France), voted as such in a referendum.  This European minority now comprises 9% (22% in the 1940s) of the population in South Africa and since 1992 has been subject to a sustained and coordinated campaign of brutal and economic reprisals and destruction which extends beyond working strategies of wealth redistribution or the empowerment of the previously
oppressed African majority.

There are a total of 50 million people living in South Africa today. The European minority who are descendants of European immigrants, account for 9.1% (4.6 million) of the South African population. Of this 4.6 million, 500,000 are foreign passport holders.  In September 2010, The Economist estimated that 800,000 (14%) of Europeans had left South Africa since 1994, when Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress (“ANC”) came to power.

The percentage of Europeans as a total of the South African population has more than halved from around 22% in the 1940’s. Nonetheless, South Africa has the largest percentage of Europeans as a percentage of the total population compared the any other African country. Many Europeans themselves are immigrants to South Africa from neighboring countries and regions such as Tanzania, the Congo Delta, Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe.

Approximately 1.6 million minority Europeans2 are descendants of British and Irish immigrants and 2.5 million are of German, French and Dutch origin. The latter are also referred to as the Afrikaners. The term “Boers” may refer to the Afrikaner in general, English and Afrikaans farmers and even all European members of the Police Force. The word ‘Boer” has the connotation of a Settler, not unlike the Pan African Congress (PAC) which had as its tagline, “One Settler, One Bullet”.

This minority group is subject to genocide which the United Nations defines as, “The deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group “. There are detailed examples of actions taken by the South African government that meet all criteria below, notwithstanding that any of the below criteria should be met to meet the definition of genocide.

  1. Killing members of the group; or
  2. Causing serious bodily or mental harm to the group; or
  3. Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; or
  4.  Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; or
  5.  Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”

Every second day, a member of the farming community within the minority European Group is brutally murdered. Notwithstanding the daily murders and rapes in the urban communities.  The majority of crimes perpetuated by the African majority against the European minority are home invasions which can last for hours and carjackings. The degree of violence, rape and torture perpetrated against both farming and urban communities of the European minority Group is heinous and unlike anything witnessed in respect of other ethnic Groups in South Africa.

The South African government reneges on its duty to protect its minority citizens from genocide, crimes against humanity which are often perpetuated by non state armed groups. The government has ignored recommendations by Human Rights Organizations, and no longer reports incidents crime according to race or ethnic group.

The South African Government denies genocide and merely classifies the murders and brutalization as crime, which every one of all ethnic groups is ‘subjected to”.  However, it is the contention of the European community that they suffer a higher rate of crime that is often more violent when compared to the remaining groups in South Africa.

The State continues to respond with the argument that the motive for home invasions is robbery and they justify this by assertions that items were almost always taken. A review of intent reveals the true substance of these crimes:
The sheer brutalization and torture of the victims as well as the length of time taken to brutalize these victims, far outweigh the value of any item stolen and this in itself is therefore a clear indication that these acts are based on the intent to brutalize, driven by motive of hate, which in turn is promulgated by hate speech and hate advocacy.

Genocide disguised as robbery is indeed confirmed as a primary motive when one considers that the robberies occur when the families are present. Indeed, if robberies were the main motive for violent home invasions, one would expect then that robbers would seek to perpetrate robberies at times when it is easiest to complete the robbery quickly undetected. Therefore those who primarily intend to torture and kill European minorities will do so and others who primarily intend to commit a robbery will do only that.

There are many other programmes, some legislated and some not, that have as their aim the destruction of the European minority. These include the exclusion of the European minority from business ownership, trade and employment. The European minority is also excluded from accessing tertiary education as well as school education in their home language.  As a result of economic displacement, the unemployment rate of the European minority has more than doubled and 650,000 European minority members live on no income. To make matters worse, in many cases, they are excluded from receiving state welfare or other benefits. Furthermore, Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are precluded from allocating more than 9% (the demographic proportion of Europeans) of their resources to ease their plight. Government enforces this
through the interception of NGO funding by the President’s Office. As a result, the European minority ethnic group affected by policies of redress has been left with no hope and absolutely no opportunities to work their way out of the situation they find themselves in.

The South African Government has also embarked on a programme of assimilation of the European minority into the African majority through imposed splitting of communities and forced relocation into African majority settlements. Children who are removed from vulnerable European families are placed with African families, despite the availability of suitable relatives.

The most vulnerable group within the European minority is its commercial farming and rural communities, which are housed on smaller plots of land.  The commercial farming community is at the epicenter of a controversy around land ownership dating back generations. Today, only 50% of land in South Africa remains in the hands of the European minority and there has been a failure rate of 70% of redistributed farms, leading to the waste of $2.5 billion spent to expropriate the land on a willing buyer, willing seller basis.

Alarmingly, the international organization, Genocide Watch upgraded South Africa to stage 6 “preparation” on its Countries at Risk Chart in September 2011, due to a surge in the hate speech and threats against the European minority. Two months later the matter was placed on the agenda in the Dutch Parliament which itself has been a strong supporter of South Africa’s transition. In March of this year, 48  Members of the Parliament of the European Union issued a declaration outlining concerns and calling on the South African Government to intervene.

The government of South Africa will be ramping up their land expropriation, nationalization and economic seizure campaign in what it dubs as its “second transition”. This does not bode well for the European minority who will imminently experience an exponential increase in poverty, reprisals and acts of genocide.

We seek assistance to ease the inhumane plight of the European minority in the form of a three-pronged approach:

  1.   Activation of United Nations mechanisms to protect and prevent genocide;
  2.   Funding of efforts by an international consulting Group to raise awareness and assist with the collection of witness statements and credible data to assist the Stanton Commission of Inquiry; and
  3.   Initiate programs to assist the displaced and provide trauma centers for victims under the auspices of a structured cluster.

5. Genocide Definition

The definition and characteristics of genocide

Genocide is defined by the Genocide Convention promulgated by the United Nations as “The deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group “. According to the United Nations’ Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, “Genocide prevention revolves around the constructive management of diversity,” and governments have a duty to protect populations from genocide… and crimes against humanity,” which are often perpetuated by non-state armed groups”.

“While conflict has many causes, genocidal conflict is identity-based. Genocide and related atrocities tend to occur in societies with diverse national, racial, ethnic or religious groups that are locked in identity-related conflicts.

It is not simply differences in identity, whether real or perceived, that generate conflict, but the implication of those differences in terms of access to power and wealth, services and resources, employment, development opportunities, citizenship and the enjoyment of fundamental rights and freedoms.

These conflicts are fomented (stirred up) by discrimination, hate speech inciting violence and other violations of human rights.”

Actions that stimulate genocide

Examples of violations of human rights that encourage genocide include:

1. Hate speech by State Officials

2. Limitations of the freedom of the press and State Secrecy

3. Police brutality

 Actions that amount to genocide

The United Nations states that any of the following acts committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group meet the definition of Genocide and are punishable under International Law:

1. Killing members of the group; or

2. Causing serious bodily or mental harm to the group; or

3. Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; or

4. Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; or

5. Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”

According to the international alliance, Genocide Watch, genocide is not necessarily limited to acts that result in the death of members. The other 4 actions listed above are acts of genocide when committees as part of a policy to destroy a group’s existence. It is also an international crime to plan or incite genocide even before killing starts as well as to aid or abet genocide through conspiracy, direct and public incitement. Finally any attempts to commit and complicity in genocide is also an international crime.

Genocide Watch explains that a key element of genocide is Intent, which means that to be deemed genocide actions are purposeful. Although intent can be proven directly from statements or orders, it is more common to prove intent form a systematic pattern of coordinated acts.

Regardless of motive for intentional acts of genocide (eg: land expropriation, national security, territorial integrity, etc), if these actions are intended to destroy a group or a part of a group, it is genocide. Destruction of part of a group such as educated members or members of the group living in a certain region is also genocide. An individual criminal may be guilty of genocide even if he kills only one person, so long as he knew he was participating in a larger plan to destroy the group.

Article III: The following acts shall be punishable:

(a) Genocide;

(b) Conspiracy to commit genocide;

(c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide;

(d) Attempt to commit genocide;

(e) Complicity in genocide.

The Genocide Convention was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 9 December 1948.  The Convention entered into force on 12 January 1951. More than 130 nations have ratified the Genocide Convention and over 70 nations have made provisions for the punishment of genocide in domestic criminal law. The text of Article II of the Genocide Convention was included as a crime in Article 6 of the 1998 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.

Genocide Watch also defines the groups who are protected by international law as:

a. National – a set of individuals whose identity is defined by a common country of nationality or national origin;

b. Ethnic – a set of individuals whose identity is defined by common cultural traditions, language or heritage;

c. Racial – a set of individuals whose identity is defined by physical characteristics;

d. Religious group is a set of individuals whose identity is defined by common religious creeds, beliefs, doctrines, practices, or rituals.

Genocide Watch has developed a framework of the path to genocide and lists six stages that lead up to Genocide, which are followed by denial:

1. Classification

2. Symbolization

3. Dehumanization

4. Organization

5. Polarization

6. Preparation

7. Extermination

8. Denial

The South African European Minority are now on level 6:  Preparation for mass murders as determined by Genocide Watch

6. Hate speech

Hate speech perpetrated against the European minority

Hate speech is defined by the South African Human Rights Commission (‘SAHRC’) as being speech that not only advocates hatred, but also incites (directs or intends for) the listener to cause harm as a result of the speech.  Therefore speech that advocates hatred does not rise to the level of hate speech unless there is also incitement to cause harm.

The Promotion of Equality and Prevention of Unfair Discrimination Act, 2000 has expanded on the SAHRC’s narrow definition of Hate Speech and outlawed any speech that demonstrates a clear intention to -

a. be hurtful;

b. be harmful or to incite harm;

c. promote or propagate hatred.

Listed below are numerous examples of narrowly defined hate speech directed at the European minority and this has incited people to attack, torture, rob, rape and murder the European minority.  In 2011, on behalf of the European minority, an interest group sought an injunction against hate speech from the High Court of South Africa. The High Court ruled against hate speech in favor of the terms of the Constitution. The high court also instructed the ANC Youth League to desist from using hate speech.

The ANC party however has appealed this court order against the ANC Youth league and its members and leadership continue to defy it.

1. “Kill the Boer” – President Jacob Zuma and others

This song which was composed and sung by the ruling party instructs its members to ‘Kill the Boer’. A Boer is a person of European origin that is descended from the migration of Europeans to South Africa during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, largely in efforts to escape religious and persecution. A Boer could literally be translated to mean a farmer or an Afrikaans speaker or a policeman, but the meaning of the word is far more encompassing: The word ‘Boer” has the connotation of a Settler, reminiscent of the Pan African Congress (PAC) which had as its tagline, “One Settler, One Bullet”.

In 2011, the High Court of South Africa issued an injunction against the President of the ruling party’s Youth League, Julius Malema, ordering him to desist from singing, Kill the Boer’, as it is hate speech and illegal. The ruling party has since appealed the High Court’s decision.

Shortly thereafter, the President of the ANC Youth League, Julius Malema was brought before a disciplinary committee on a range of charges, one of which was the promulgation of racism. The ANC Disciplinary Committee specifically found that Malema had not committed the act of racism10 and suspended him due to internal party issues and his efforts to undermine the President, Jacob Zuma. Julius Malema’s deputy, Ronald Lamola continues with the tirade of hate speech against the European minority as well as efforts to undermine the sovereignty of South Africa’s president.

The President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma continues to show contempt of the court’s ruling and persists with singing this song publically. He has also publically bemoaned the existence of the principles of the rule of law and accused those who oppose his use of hate speech of attempting to co-govern the country using the courts to do so.

On July, 8th 2011, he addressed the third ‘Access to Justice’ Conference and stated, “The powers conferred on the courts cannot be superior to the powers resulting from the political and consequently administrative mandate resulting from popular democratic elections. Political disputes resulting from the exercise of powers that have been constitutionally conferred on the ruling party through a popular vote must not be subverted, simply because those who disagree with the ruling party politically, and who cannot win the popular vote during elections, feel other arms of the State are avenues to help them co-govern the country.”

It is apparent that this regime believes that they can do as they wish because popular vote deems it so. Therefore, if the African majority wishes to sing about killing the European minority, they will do so, regardless of the terms of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, while justifying their genocidal actions.

Julius Malema was subsequently suspended from the ANC after he was brought before the ANC’s Disciplinary Committee in three charges. The ANC disciplinary committee found him guilty of (a). ‘bringing the party into disrepute’ (He public threats to assist with a Coup d’état in Botswana after he discovered the existence of an American Military Airfield); (b) ’causing division’ (he challenged President Zuma).

However, he was acquitted of (c).’racism’ – in spite of calls to occupy White Owned Farms and the continued commission of contempt.  He also joined forces with Robert Mugabe from Zimbabwe and regularly cites him as an inspiration of how to get rid of the European Minority.

It is our contention that the ANC is adamant on protecting this blatant song of hate speech to direct members of the African majority to murder the European minority settlers. The song which was sung during the majority struggle against the horrors of Apartheid is a powerful and poignant tool to ensure unity of the electorate. The song also is believed to ensure focus of the electorate remains directed at the European minority rather than directed at failures by government in respect of poverty alleviation and endemic corruption within the structures of the State.

2. Other examples of hate speech by senior government officials “It is time for the league to take action to reclaim land, even if this is not initiated by the ANC themselves.” – Ronald Lamola, Deputy President of the ANC Youth League, Lecture at the University of South Africa, June 21, 2012.  Mentioning Zimbabwe as an example, he said “land grabbing was not initiated by the Zanu-PF, it was initiated by the party’s veterans “It is an illusion if South Africans believe they can get their land back peacefully” and “we need an act as forceful as war to bring it back to the Africans.”- Ronald Lamola, deputy President of the ANC Youth League on European Farmers while giving a public lecture at the Durban University of Technology, 19 June 2012.

We are going to shoot them with the machine gun. They are going to run. You are a Boer, we are going hit you and you are going to run. The cabinet (government leadership) will shoot them with the machine gun, shoot the Boer,” Sung by Jacob Zuma at the ANC Centenary celebrations while the audience danced and ululated and a massive cake was brought forward, January, 8, 2012.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHLTKZ05zM4&feature=youtu.be

“Once we agree that they stole our land, we can agree they are criminals and must be treated as such,” Julius Malema, President of the ANC Youth League discusses European minority farmers while addressing a conference in the presence of President Jacob Zuma in Galitshwe, 6 May 2011.”

“They can continue to whinge until they are blue in the face. They can continue to be as negative as they want to, or they can simply leave this country.” Charles Ngakula – Minister of Safety and Security on the European minority’s efforts to highlight excessive crimes, brutalization and murder, Parliament Presentation, October, 2006.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2QK1PBZo5Y

7. State Secrecy

Limitations of the Freedom of the Press and State Secrecy

“In August 2011”, says Amnesty International, “members of the Hawks unlawfully arrested a Sunday Times investigative journalist, Mzilikazi wa Afrika, apparently in connection with his reporting on an alleged hit squad linked to senior members of the Mpumalanga provincial government. They seized his notebooks and held him at various locations for 24 hours before he was allowed access to his lawyer. Following an urgent court application, the Pretoria High Court ordered his immediate release.”

The incident occurred at a time of increased pressure from the ruling ANC and the government for stricter control of the media and freedom of expression through a proposed Media Appeals Tribunal and a new piece of legislation aimed at the Protection of Information law. Civil Society Organizations launched a Right2Know campaign in opposition to these developments. (Amnesty International report)

Two months after this incident, the South African Government introduced the Protection of Information Bill, which was eerily similar to legislation of the Apartheid Government that effectively silenced the media, three decades earlier. This legislation casts an all encompassing veil of secrecy across the entire public sector which comprises all state institutions, universities and state owned entities at every level of government.  There is no doubt that communist practices are being implemented.

Secrecy is achieved by giving the correspondingly wide range of officials the power to classify information as secret. Any party – including journalists – who expose and/or handle ‘secrets’ in the public interest are criminalized and face the risk of up to 25 years imprisonment.

Six months later, on June 17, 2012, The President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma conducted a visit to Sophiatown in Johannesburg and outlined his aims for the full control of the media in South Africa16. “Another project that we must own, and own seriously, is the media. As long as we don’t own the media, we are going to be complaining every day that they are against us etc.  At the moment, all what we do is to buy shares – that is not owning. Buy shares, and they say don’t talk, don’t talk… you are the owner.” “I am told, and I don’t know if it is true, that when Black people started buying newspapers they changed the practice and the editors declared independence from the owners.

They (the media) are very independent out there, you can’t tell them what to do.  They can even paint you black being an owner. So who owns the media really?  In any case, I am just saying that is part of the problem,”  It is evident from the above paragraphs that the motive for control of the media by President Jacob Zuma is to silence freedom of speech and to control the media. In turn there can be nothing less than a sinister motive for wanting to control the media and shed a veil of secrecy over the State.

We posit that the sinister motives could include the cover up of corruption and the genocide of the European minority.

I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
Elie Wiesel

8. Police: Protector or Predator

Victimization by the Police and State Officials

An African Traffic cop assaulted a European woman outside the hospital in Potchefstroom when she was on her way to see her father who was dying – and who actually died while she was being manhandled outside the building.

In recent years, police brutality in South Africa has been highlighted by various human rights organizations. In July 2011, the South African Human Rights Commission hosted a workshop on police brutality.

According to Amnesty International, South Africa has still not ratified the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture and at the end of 2011 and torture by police had still not been outlawed. Incidents of torture reported to and corroborated by Amnesty International include severe beatings, electric shocks and suffocation torture while the person was shackled or hooded as well as death threats.

Alzheimer sufferer James Brown, 98, was arrested after forgetting to pay for a chocolate bar at a shop, taken to the Kriel police station and found dead with a fresh-head wound in his cell the next day.

The police oversight body, the Independent Complaints Directorate (ICD), reported that from April 2009 to March 2010 that it had received five direct complaints of torture.  The ICD also received 920 complaints of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, some of which were being investigated for evidence of torture.

Seven of the 294 deaths in custody were linked to torture and 90 others to “injuries sustained in custody”. The ICD also investigated 24 complaints of rape by police officers.  In many cases the police have targeted European minorities with their acts of sheer brutality.  It has to be emphasized that this is merely the tip of the iceberg, intimidation deters people from laying charges.

1.      Police involvement in child prostitution

Members of police have also been identified as owners of brothels responsible for the trafficking of children, especially  European children and women in partnership with Nigerians in the South Africa.  The Child protection Unit was an extremely effective crime fighting unit but was disbanded by Nelson Mandela’s ANC shortly after uncovering a large Nigerian child prostitution ring.  Ironically, it was disbanded shortly after an announcement was made that they would be strengthened by a special task team.  Similarly to the Commandos who were protecting farmers and the task team that were supposed to investigate the police gang mentioned in point 2, the promised law enforcement never materialized while the current effective anti-crime units were disbanded.

Needless to say, this is now a very lucrative and flourishing business in South Africa where human trafficking is not not illegal.

In January 2005, Police in South Africa have infiltrated a major child sex syndicate. Girls as young as ten were fed drugs to force them into a life of prostitution.  Priscilla, after which the operation was named, is only 16 but already she’s a hardened prostitute. “I don’t know if I’ll see 21 if it goes on like this,” she confides. She’s a victim of a nation-wide Nigerian sex syndicate, which rotates girls between brothels in four cities. Her 14 year old sister, Candice, is also being held captive. “Child exploitation attracts a lot of attention — it becomes more dangerous, it becomes more lucrative,” explains one expert. There’s even a website where pimps can advertise their girls. Most girls were enslaved after being force-fed drugs but more sinister methods were also used.

One mother’s three year old son was abducted by her pimps to force her onto the street. Another child was brutally gang raped after she tried to run away.  This video of operation Pricilla gives some insight into the problem.

The volunteers trying to address this problem face life threatening situations every day.  They cannot go public in fear of intimidation and if they do, they will no longer be able to assist these girls.  Most of the time when some of these girls were able to escape with the help of volunteers, they go back because of intimidation or their now established drug dependency.  Because the prostitution rings are nationwide, they also constantly in fear of being located by the pimps or police involved.

Affirmative action also bars them from the job market, so there are very limited alternative job opportunities.

Without professional help and places of safety, there is no escape for them.  Government policies dictate that NGO’s may only use 9% of their funding for these girls from the European minority, which means they are often unable to obtain lifesaving assistance from established resources.  This will however change, the ANC government published new legislation that will tie the hands of any charity to help these white girls.

Recently a group of girls were discovered in Cape Town, all their teeth were extracted to ensure they do not bite the clients.

A spokes person from PSARU (People Search And Rescue Unit) explains why it is so important to find a displaced or missing child within 48 hours.

People disappear for different reasons but human trafficking is affecting the world! Let me explain how some of these girls are abducted and then “prepared” to work as sex slaves till they eventually die.

They “prepare” the girls in 21 days – this is how they do it!

They are locked up in a room with a bed and the bare minimum.

  1. The first 7 days they beat the girls, very severely and every day
  2. The 2nd 7 days they gang rape them, every day
  3. The 3rd 7 days they force-feed them drugs

 After the 21 day breakdown ritual they own these girls. They will NOT run away but become like robots and do the work they are forced into until they eventually die. They are completely brain washed.

The world does nothing. Human trafficking is the fastest growing industry in the world. It can happen to anyone.

2.     Gang of policemen

Several affluent people have been carjacked and brutally assaulted by members of the police and one of the victims had formed an anti-crime group, Enough.     In March of this year, the Police Department launched a task force to investigate the Gang of policemen that were perpetrating these brutal crimes. The task force was summarily shut down amid accusations that top police officials are involved with this gang.

Several European men have reported cases of being arrested on frivolous as well as trumped up charges, such as minor traffic offences and placed in cells with multiple prisoners, sometimes only for a few hours. In some cases the police have instructed the prisoners to rape and assault these European men and ‘teach them a lesson’. During the rapes, most of which endured for several hours, the police did not check on the cells every hour as per protocol and deliberately ignored the desperate screams for help.

  • In April, 2012, British publication, the Metro reported the heinous repeated gang rape of Sean Smith, a citizen of Wales who was arrested on charges of fraud and jailed while awaiting trial in St Alban’s Prison just outside of Port Elizabeth.  He was the only European left in a prison cell with 90 inmates. He was gang raped up to 8 times a day over a period of nineteen months “because he was White”. After nine months of incarceration, he tested positive for HIV Aids.  Amazingly, was still left in the same conditions for a further ten months until hewas finally granted bail and escaped South Africa.
  • “Wimpie, a White boy who was dabbling with dagga, is put in our cell. I don’t know how old he really is, perhaps 16 or more, but he looks no older than 14, with skinny arms and short, spiky-crowned, brown hair. He tries to fight, and so they hit him. His resistance stops abruptly when one grabs the back of his head and smashes his face into the steel bars …The 20 men take it in turns to rape him. It goes on for more than eight hours, almost the whole night.  The boy does everything he can, in his pathetic, limited range of action, to try to deter them, but he is ignored. He screams, he cries, he begs, he tries to bargain, he prays.

It is in the morning, though, that I am forced to see what life has coughed up before me. What’s left of Wimpie is lying in a corridor between the bunks, just in front of my bed. He is still naked, shivering in a pool of his own blood where they have discarded him. I will literally have to step over the small body to go and eat my breakfast.”- Gayton McKenzie, an African gang member in South Africa, speaks for a research paper at the University of Pretoria, 2008.

  • In 2008, a 52 year old diabetic man from Johannesburg as falsely jailed in Witbank for a second time, after making enquiries at the Clerk of the Court for some paperwork in respect of the original illegal arrest. He was arrested again and put into a detention cell with 30 African inmates at the Witbank police station. Four inmates carried him around naked in the cell while the rest sang and danced and then forced him to kneel over a rolled up mattress, then they proceeded to sodomize him until he later lost consciousness.

They continued to repeatedly rape him as he slipped in and out of consciousness. He was then left unattended in the cell for two days, before he was finally taken to a doctor to obtain medicine for his diabetes. The ‘case’ against him for which he had been wrongfully arrested in the first place, was withdrawn.”

  • Also in 2008, 25 year old Nico Bouwer was repeatedly sodomized while in police custody in Polokwane just a few weeks before he was due to get married. He was on his way home from a friend’s house when his left tire burst and he hit a street lamp and a stoplight.  Because of his injuries, he was transported to Polokwane hospital where he was arrested for drunk driving. Contrary to normal practice he was prevented from obtaining the immediate medical treatment he needed.

Instead he was taken to the holding cells, denied his right to a phone call and placed in a cell with 25 African majority inmates. Eight of these African men attacked Bouwer and repeatedly raped him. Some held his arms and forced his face into a pillow while they were sodomizing him.  He was only allowed to call his lawyer the next day after he had appeared in court and was finally released on bail.

  • During the same year, in Vryheid, game rancher Etienne van Wyk arrested for apparently transporting his own game animals without a licence. He was placed in a cell with hardened African criminals predisposed to violence, some of whom were repeat offenders. The next day after the rape that he had endured for several hours, he was released without being charged.

3)    Rape of women by police

Rape of women under the guise of arrest is prolific and also under reported.  There are several reported cases of intensely aggressive police intimidation brutality meted out to Europeans, who are too afraid to report these incidents to the Independent Complaints Directorate.  The Police have been especially scrutinized for their refusal to bring perpetrators of heinous crimes against the European minority to justice.  It should however be noted, not by the ANC government, but civil society and citizens.

It appears that the police and officials have the blessing of the ANC regime tocarry out these atrocities, not surprising when the the polygamous president, Jacob Zuma, believes “you cannot just leave a woman if she is ready.” To deny such a woman sex, would be “tantamount to rape”, he told the judge in his 2006 rape trial (he was acquitted).

There are also widespread reports of police corruption and a widely held perception that in some cases police collude with perpetrators. NGO’s and experts estimate that only 2.8% rapes are reported annually.  This is hardly surprising taking into consideration reports of women who get raped by the police.

It is evident that many of those holding offices of power in the Police Force are exploiting their positions for personal gain through lucrative crime. There are also those who are targeting the European minority and repeatedly precipitating racially based brutality. It is not surprising to see this trend, given the degree of hate speech and hate advocacy leveled at the European minority, unchecked and without regard for the rule of law by the leadership of South Africa.  Some proponents maintain the Police are committing acts of war against the very citizens they are meant to protect, while being goaded on and encouraged to do so by the leadership of South Africa.

  • In December of 2011, one of the most brutal stories of rape by the police occurred. Four members of the Sandton Police Station, two of whom were uniformed police sergeants raped two European sisters (aged 27 and 24) simultaneously. They followed them to one of the sisters’ homes and pulled them over as they were driving into their apartment complex.
  • In 2009, Martie Olivier, a mother-of-three was repeatedly raped by two uniformed policemen in Kempton Park, South Africa.  Martie Olivier’s husband, Sarel, said they were unable to lay a charge of rape later that day because the police refused to take their statements.  Although rape victims are not normally identified, the couple gave permission for their names to be published.  The couple’s nightmare began shortly after midnight. Olivier said he and his wife, 29, were at a bbq at his parents’ house in Birch Acres on Saturday night, after which they went to a nearby pub for a drink.

Olivier said that on his way home, he drove into a driveway and out again as he made a U-turn. A marked police van suddenly stopped in front of the couple’s Toyota Run-X.  Two men in police uniform climbed out of the van and moved to the driver’s side of their car before yanking the door open, he said. They then allegedly threw him into the back of the van without explanation.

“One of the policemen approached me and asked what I was prepared to give them in exchange for my husband’s release,” said Martie.   She gave him the R400 she had onher.  However, the man asked: “Do you really love your husband? Is there nothing more you can do?” He then allegedly climbed into the driver’s seat of the Toyota and drove toward the Kempton Park police station. The police van followed, she said.

Olivier, who was in the police van, said: “About 200m from the police station I noticed the car pulling off the road, but I thought nothing of it. It’s the police after all.” At the police station, the policeman driving the van opened the doors at the back and told him he had been caught driving under the influence, but that he was free to go.  The other policeman arrived shortly afterwards in the Toyota with Olivier’s wife in the passenger’s seat. When Olivier climbed into their car, she told him she had been raped.

“She appeared traumatized and I could see her underwear had been torn,” he said.  It was then that he attacked police officers with bare fists.  “When I returned to the car, my wife was gone. I thought she had run away.”  She allegedly lost consciousness when one of the policemen slammed herhead into the dashboard while her husband was inside the police station. There were two policemen in the car with her when her husband was inside the station.

She said she came to on a lounge floor in an unfamiliar house. Her next recollection was of a security guard who woke her in a flowerbed at Boston Business College.  “He asked me why the police had dropped me off there. I couldn’t give him an answer,” she said. After hours of searching, Olivier said he saw his wife in a traumatized condition walking from the Boston Business College at “exactly 07:20”.  He immediately took her to the police station, after which she was medically examined at a nearby trauma centre, where evidence of a rape was found on her body and dress. She also had visible injuries.

“I have scratch marks and bruises between my legs and on my body. In our car there was also blood from the first time I was raped.”  She was given anti-retroviralmedication to protect her against HIV.

Our contention however is that regardless of such propositions, the leadership of State and therefore all arms of the State have a duty to protect all of its citizens from reprehensible violations of human rights across the board. Failures to do so in respect of the European minority are endemic and continue unchecked.

In one example, an university student was raped and tortured for several hours by an African perpetrator who virtually dissected her face and body with over 40 well placed cuts while keeping her alive. The perpetrator was arrested shortly after the incident, but then released by two policemen.  A journalist, Hilda Fourie and medical doctor ‘LP’ – A surgeon and other medical personnel – aghast at the horrendous injuries inflicted on the student launched a fundraising campaign to pay a reward to the man who captured the girl’s torturer-rapist.

The African was able to attack the woman inside her flat because she had just seen off her friends after Bible-study, which she presumed safe as she lived in a security complex.  Outraged medical personnel described the attack as follows:

The woman was virtually dissected and then raped by her attacker. This savage ordeal lasted several hours.”With time at his disposal the attacker waited for her in her secured apartment, and with a butcher knife stabbed her.” He then took the knife and started to dissect her face by cutting open the nose, through the lips and ended under her chin. She fought back fiercely – and he tried to stab out one of her eyes. A deep cut was made from her neck and stopped at her lung. All her fingers were then cut into: her left thumb was carved apart and was just hanging by its senews. Two other fingers’ senews were also cut through.

The torturer then forced her to the bedroom and made very deep cutting wounds to her legs. After cutting main arteries on her body (she suffered 22 cuts and stabs in total) she was bleeding copiously, and then he raped her amidsts the bloodbath he had created around her.” Distraught medical personnel including the orthopaedic surgeon who rushed to help her, all were deeply angered and upset, said Dr “LP” – saying this was one of the worst cases of mutilation they had ever seen.  Notwithstanding that South African medical personnel are used to having to treat very gruesome trauma-injuries: such as the ones inflicted upon the tens of thousands of members of the European Minority.

Yet, even in light of the severity of the attack, the police still allowed the perpetrator to go free, which again confirms their approval and alliance with the attacker and rapist and not the victim.

This can also be put in context when viewed in terms of Rafael Lemkin;’s definition, which is generally accepted as the norm: “Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups . . ..”
