Above is a photo of Nelson Mandela and Leila Khaled, both have been dubbed “terrorists” by the USA. In fact Nelson Mandela and South Africa’s ruling party the ANC both remained on the USA terrorism watch list till as recent as 2008. Many Palestinians including Leila Khaled are today considered terrorists like the ANC and Nelson Mandela were once classified terrorists.

PALESTINIAN ICON, LEILA KHALED, ON SOUTH AFRICAN FUNDRAISING SPEAKING TOUR FOR BDS SA
nytk_leilaknww.jpg
The Palestinian struggle icon Leila Khaled will be in South Africa between the 5th and 15th of February 2014. Leila Khaled will be in several South African cities on a BDS South Africa Fundraising Speaking Tour.

Leila Khaled has been dubbed “the poster girl of the Palestinian struggle”. Khaled’s image flashed across the world after she hijacked a passenger jet in 1969 and made world history by becoming the first woman to hijack an airplane. The picture of a young, determined looking woman with a checkered kuffiyah scarf, clutching an AK-47, was as era-defining as that of Che Guevara, Ruth First and other political figures from our recent past. See below or click here for Leila Khaled’s South African speaking dates and contact details to purchase dinner tickets.
