Of course: Mandela family denies he had a connection with the Mossad

It should surprise no one that the Mandela family is doing all it can to deny a report in Haaretz on Friday that claimed that Mandela received weapons training from Israel's Mossad before he was arrested in 1962. This is from the first link.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation can confirm that it has not located any evidence in Nelson Mandela's private archive (which includes his 1962 diary and notebook) that he interacted with an Israeli operative during his tour of African countries in that year. Both the diary and the notebook were used as evidence against him in the 1963-1964 Rivonia Trial for sabotage.

In 1962 Mr Mandela received military training from Algerian freedom fighters in Morocco and from the Ethiopian Riot Battalion at Kolfe outside Addis Ababa, before returning to South Africa in July 1962. In 2009 the Nelson Mandela Foundation’s senior researcher travelled to Ethiopia and interviewed the surviving men who assisted in Mandela’s training – no evidence emerged of an Israeli connection.
But the Haaretz report was based on a letter in Israel's state archives, which would not be in Mandela's diary, and there was good reason to keep the training secret and to ask Mandela to keep it secret: So as not to endanger South Africa's large Jewish community.

African National Congress don't like Jews. Mandela took help from left wing Jews when it suited the struggle. He broke bread with terrorists, Arafat and ghadaffi. Mandela was no saint
