Marxist-Leninist Arab terrorist Leila Khaled, most infamous for hijacking a European airliner, is on tour in South Africa promoting boycotts and sanctions against the State of Israel. Among other controversial stops on her schedule, Khaled will speak to the veterans of the ruling African National Congress’ (ANC) terror wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe, which was led by admitted Communist Party leader Nelson Mandela at the height of its bloody Soviet-backed terror spree across Southern Africa. The hijacker’s tour has been well received among South Africa’s ruling establishment, which includes the ANC in a ruling alliance with the Communist Party (SACP) and a communist-dominated coalition of labor unions known as COSATU. However, Jewish groups, anti-terrorism activists, and elements of the increasingly embattled European-descent minority are starting to speak out.
