Jewish Report’s online editor Ant Katz challenges UKZN academic & PSF activist over an Op-Ed she posted in last Sunday’s Tribune. Katz unpacks the entire Mandela speech (which Madiba wrote personally), shows how well-disposed he was towards Israel, pulls apart some of Ms Nadvi’s statements – and concludes with the words: “I challenge you, Lubna Nadvi, academic and community activist, to go to Israel and Palestine with SAIF as the enlightened sixteen did, and let’s see what you think on your return.”

Jewish Report’s online editor Ant Katz challenges UKZN academic & PSF activist over an Op-Ed she posted in last Sunday’s Tribune.



Put up or shut up, Ms Nadvi

In an address on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People in Pretoria on 4 December 1997, then-President Nelson Mandela certainly did say: “Our freedom is incomplete…” – but when read in context, as with so many of Madiba’s well thought through speeches, this one was remarkable and memorable for many of its facets. Not the least of which was his overtly conciliatory stance towards Israel - particularly given the purpose of the event.

Katz unpacks the entire Mandela speech (which Madiba wrote personally), shows how well-disposed he was towards Israel, pulls apart some of Ms Nadvi’s statements – and concludes with the words: “I challenge you, Lubna Nadvi, academic and community activist, to go to Israel and Palestine with SAIF as the enlightened sixteen did, and let’s see what you think on your return.”

    No way will she go. Because she would come back with her tail between her legs.Education is not always a good thing for people like Nadvi who prefer to stay on the side of ignorance.
    In a sense, much like the miners and their militant unions. They never gave it a thought that the mines, one day would retrench them. Poor buggers.
    So too, Nadvi will grow like a miner and one day Israel would have defeated Iran , Is, Syria, Lebanon etc etc and there wont be anything to discuss. End of people like Nadvi.
