Nelson Mandela's Controversial Ties to Arafat, Kadafi and Castro

June 28, 1990

Mandela is quoted as defending his friendship with Arafat, Libya's Moammar Kadafi and Cuba's Fidel Castro by saying: "There is no reason whatsoever that we should have reservations about their attitude toward human rights in their own country--we have no time to look into the internal affairs of another country" (Part A, June 22).

In that case, why does he expect the U.S. to do just that, and to impose sanctions against the government of South Africa? I guess he would have accepted support from Hitler, Stalin and Idi Amin, Somoza and Duvalier.
