  • Elder of Ziyon
Oh, and she is a representative of the ruling African National Congress.
Do I even have to mention that she happens to be a Muslim?
An ANC MP cited the Protocols of the Elders of Zion -- the infamous anti-Semitic forgery used by the Nazis -- as a credible document at a recent Iranian-sponsored academic seminar in Pretoria.

Farida Mahomed agreed recently she had asked a Jewish seminar delegate, Claudia Braude: “Are the protocols still relevant to you in today’s time? How do we apply this balanced approach to reconciliation when we read them and they are totally the opposite?”

Mahomed was responding to a presentation by Braude reflecting on democratic South Africa’s possible role as a global reconciler. It included a call for South Africans to reject Iranian Holocaust denialism.

Interviewed this week, Mahomed said she was unaware the protocols had been exposed as a hoax. Published in the early 20th century by the Tsarist secret police Okhrana, the document purported to show a Jewish conspiracy to take over the world.

Another delegate at the Pretoria meeting also questioned the authenticity of the Holocaust, citing Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s dismissal of it as “a myth”.

The gathering took place a week before the Iranian government’s widely condemned international Holocaust conference in Tehran.

Asked for her views on the Holocaust, Mahomed said: “I don’t want to comment on something that I haven’t done research on. I wouldn’t want to be influenced by any scholar.”

ANC spokesperson Smuts Ngonyama said the party’s position was that the Nazi genocide should be “condemned with the contempt that it deserves”.

Mahomed made her input during a panel discussion on “religious thoughts in socio-cultural development”, held on December 1 and 2 at Unisa, with support from the Iranian Embassy.

...Mahomed said that she had read the protocols on the internet but had not researched them.

Asked whether she thought they had ever been “relevant”, she replied: “I can’t make a comment. They must have been relevant or they would never have been written.” They did not contribute towards peace, which is why she posed the question.

She added that Braude should have made it clear at the conference that they had been exposed as a forgery.
That daughter of apes and pigs wasn't even nice enough to tell her that the Protocols were a forgery? No wonder the Jews are so hated! I bet that they are also "influenced by scholars" when they do their research!

And by the way - although the SA parliament webpage is down as I write this, it appears that the ignorant and bigoted Ms. Mahomed is a member of the Foreign Affairs committee.

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 23,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
