Mandela Mourned Throughout the Jewish World

12 December 2013

Nina Bassat AM, President, Jewish Community Council of Victoria, on the passing of Nelson Mandela:

"The sheer strength, dignity, ability to forgive and his clear understanding of moral imperatives made Nelson Mandela a giant among world leaders. His influence was global and he will be mourned not only by his own country, but by all. Not all of us would agree with some of his views on Israel and Zionism, but they were views which were based on his worldview, not on animosity. Mandela has left a legacy of the power of reconciliation and the possibility of achieving the seemingly unachievable.”
