Did you know that Mandela was sympathetic to the Palestinian cause and said: "We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians." He recognized the similarities between the South African apartheid system and that of Israel, which continues (mostly unacknowledged) to this day. A recent documentary, "Roadmap to Apartheid," shows this clearly, juxtaposing pictures of the apartheid system in South Africa with that of Israel against the Palestinians. During a meeting with Henry Siegman from the American Jewish Congress, Mandela said: "We identify with the PLO because just like ourselves they are fighting for the right of self-determination." Bishop Desmond Tutu observed: "I am a black South African. If I were to change the names, a description of what is happening in the Gaza Strip and West Bank could describe events in [apartheid] South Africa."
