Klaas de Jonge: The ANC Struggle Hero


Klaas de Jonge (Right)
Picture source: search.socialhistory.org

Watch the video embedded below featuring the ol’ scumbag terrorist and arms smuggler anti-apartheid activist, Klaas de Jonge. Make sure captions are turned on, and listen attentively to the conversation from point 2:14 onwards where he is interviewing a Black lady by the name of Pauline… 

She states: “Mandela promised us housing…. But we didn’t get a house. It’s painful because they promised people change, but nothing changed.” At that point Pauline breaks down in tears, and ol’ Klaas tries to console her. He reminds her that she is an old veteran (of the struggle) and that because of this fact she has certain rights to a grant (financial reward). Pauline then informs him that she is not entitled to the grant because she is not an ANC member. Klaas then asks her if she will vote for the ANC in the next elections. She replies: “YES, because of… EISH!...” and then rambles on (in her own language) about how life was even harder before???! This, my dear friends, is the mindset of the indoctrinated masses... The EISH is not only an expression of their confusion and ignorance but also their fear.

De Jonge decided to return to South Africa, this year (July 2012) after he heard that he had cancer. He wanted to meet his former friends and enemies to see what they thought of the new South Africa and whether it has fulfilled their expectations :-(


Folk from the old school, like me, will remember who this crazy Dutchman is, but for the sake of those who need a refresher (or have no clue), allow me to present a brief summary:

During the 1980's Klaas de Jonge and his Belgian wife, Hélène Passtoors, smuggled illegal weapons and explosives into South Africa from Maputo over several years, burying equipment in dead letter boxes, and providing sketches to incoming Umkhonto weSizwe (MK) terrorists. They were finally arrested in South Africa in 1985, in the town of Zeerust near the Botswana border. In a secret compartment of their vehicle the police found a number of Russian limpet mines, handguns, AK-47 rifles, and a stack of dynamite. They were charged for contravening the Arms and Ammunition Act and detained under the Internal Security Act, which made provision for detention without trial.

Klaas de Jonge conned the police into believing that he was prepared to assist them with their investigation and also the location of other illegal arms catches.  At one point in time, on the 9th of July 1985, they found themselves in the city centre of Pretoria, very close to the Nedbank building on the corner of Andries and Church streets, where the Dutch embassy was housed. The policemen escorting de Jonge did not take into account the implications of the Dutch Embassy’s proximity, but when their detainee made a dash for freedom, they promptly re-arrested him at the embassy’s reception. The incident sparked off a huge diplomatic row, and on the 19th of July the police returned de Jonge back to the Dutch embassy…  And that is where the arsehole remained stuck for 26 months!

The Wynand du Toit StoryKlaas de Jonge was eventually allowed to leave the embassy and return to the Netherlands, thanks to an intricate prisoner-exchange deal involving the SA Recce Commander, Major Wynand du Toit, who was detained in an Angolan prison, the Frenchman Pierre-André Albertini, and 133 Angolan MPLA-soldiers. - Source (Most online sources only mention du Toit.)

Hélène Passtoors was convicted of High Treason and imprisoned from 1985-1989. She was awarded the Order of the Companions of OR Tambo in Silver, for her contribution to terrorism the struggle for liberation… (More details here)

I wonder if the ANC government will be so lenient with the Boeremag members who are currently facing a similar charge.

You seem to have a lot of hatred for freedom fighters like De Jonge and you are acting as if the fact, that he acted illegal according to the apartheid regime's law, makes him a very evil person.

Do I really have to remind you, that the apartheid regime (often referred to as "white minority regime") was itself an illegal entity?

This illegal form of governemnt called apartheid, which was condemned by most of the world's nations, had no right to exist in the first place. De Jonge is a hero, not a criminal like these ruthless murderers and torturers* who were on the payroll of the illegal apartheid regime to suppress the demands of the South African majority.

*the very well researched book "In the Heart of the Whore" by Jacques Pauw teaches us a lesson about the real terrorists = the security forces of the white minority regime. You should read it.

(I wonder whether you will have enough decency to not delete my comment)

@Anon (6:45 PM) – Your comment reveals some serious misconceptions. Allow me to clarify…

Apartheid was declared to be a crime against humanity, with a scope that went far beyond South Africa. While it was often associated with the racist (British) policies of South Africa after 1948, the term more generally refers to racially based policies in any state in the world. You can read all about the so-called Crime of Apartheid on Wikipedia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crime_of_apartheid

I don’t know where you get the idea that it was an illegal form of government that had no right to exist in the first place, or that it was condemned by most of the world's nations. The International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid (ICSPCA) was never signed nor ratified by a number of prominent nations, including Canada, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and the United States. In fact, if you look at the Wikipedia map of the signatories of the 1973 International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid then you will see that they are almost all communist countries from Asia, Africa and South America. Just about all of them were or still are under brutal dictatorships far worse than South Africa.

It’s all good and well that the United Nations declared Apartheid, “a crime against humanity” in 1973, but don’t you find it rather odd that nobody – not one single individual or entity has ever been found guilty of this crime?

The following relatively unknown (concealed truths) was sourced from Mike Smith’s Political Commentary:

South Africa was accused of the same thing during the 1960’s by Liberia and Ethiopia on behalf of the African bloc in the United Nations, and charges were laid in 1962 at the International court in The Hague.

SA delivered a written presentation of 3000 pages, called 15 expert witnesses out of 38 presented. The evidence showed amongst others, fifty countries which , by law and official practice, differentiated between groups, classes or races – forty of them members of the UN at the time, including Ethiopia and Liberia themselves.

South Africa refused to accept the written allegations by the “petitioners” and wanted to get them in court and cross examine them, but at no stage was Ernst Gross, the American lawyer on behalf of the African states interested in calling any “petitioners”. South Africa even offered to pay all their expenses, just for a chance to cross examine them, but to no avail.

Nevertheless, in 1966 the court ruled in favour of SA and dismissed the nonsense of the African bloc in the UN. South Africa scored a resounding victory over the United Nations.

With that the matter was settled. There was nothing wrong with Apartheid. Despite this ruling by the ICJ, the UN still declared Apartheid, “a crime against humanity” in 1973.


I will continue with my response to your comment in a separate posting as blogger misbehaves, for some odd reason, when comments are too long.

Continued from above in response to Anon @ (6:45 PM):

At the time when De Jonge was arrested for smuggling illegal weapons and explosives into South Africa, In June 1985, the world was in a sustained state of political and military tension between powers in the Western Bloc, dominated by the United States with NATO and other allies; versus powers in the Eastern Bloc, dominated by the Soviet Union with the Warsaw Pact and other allies. It was called the Cold War (1945–1991). At that same time South Africa was fighting a Border War (related to the Cold War) - a conflict that took place from 1966 to 1989. In addition to the SA Border War there was also much tension and conflict inside the borders of the country. Typical wartime atrocities were committed by both sides. Jacques Pauw’s book, In the Heart of the Whore, which I have read and which I consider to be a good book, only tells a fraction of the story, and only deals with a few small and fragmented components of SA’s security forces. You make it sound as if the book exposes the entire SA government.

In the context of the above timeframe De Jong was a terrorist, because he was supporting the banned Soviet-backed ANC. He was also considered a terrorist in the eyes of Western powers. Several reputable sources reference De Jonge and his Belgium companion, Helen Passtoors, as “Terrorists”. See for example: The Terrorist List, by Edward F. Mickolus, and Susan L. Simmons (ISBN: 978-0313374715).

Maybe the above anonymous liberal retard should also have a look at the following videos:

@ "Bennie":

I have no problem with responding to the comments which were made by the author of this blog.

By referring to my person as "liberal retard", you are mainly demonstrating your inability to respect differing point of views and experiences.

One doesn't have to be a "liberal" (is that a pejorative word in your circles?), to recognize the evilness of Apartheid. It's common knowledge that Apartheid was one of the most backward, anachronistic and inhumane forms of government of the late 20th century.

The fact that the boers/afrikaaners have an extremely anachronistic culture (their forefathers left Europe right in the moment when the era of enlightenment was about to begin, because they wanted to continue their backwards lifestyle), might have played a role.

You sound like one of these poor folks who defend the crimes of the white minority regime against the majority of South Africans and now claim that there is a hidden genocide against Boers going on by the evil black communists of the ANC, which is in fact today more capitalist and pro-free market than
any other former liberation movement in the world.

@ "Tia Myosa":

The Apartheid Regime did not come into power by winning the majority of the votes of the South African people. The only people who were permitted to vote, as you may know, were the small minority of descendants of settlers from Europe. This is not considered to be democratic according to common standards. They represented not even 20% of the actual South African population. That's exactly why the white minority regime was not legitimate, and therefore illegal.

We can discuss technicalities of which exact countries signed which conventions of condemnation of Apartheid or did not sign some of these conventions. The information about this is widely available in the specific literature and even via the Internet. By misusing this information for an agenda that tries to justify apartheid, you are unmasking yourself.

It's not a secret that the Western Powers you've mentioned had geopolitical interests in southern Africa (just like the Eastern Bloc had) and that they safeguarded these interests by not effectively acting against the white minority regime which at the same time they denounced as inhumane and in dire need of reform. It's called "conflict of interest" in politics. Some call it hypocrisy.

Sweden under Olof Palme for example did take another, more effective and honest, approach against the white supremacist government of Apartheid South Africa.

It doesn't matter whether the illegitimate white minority regime did refer to Mr De Jonge as "terrorist". He fought for the liberation of South Africa from fascist-like rule and deserves the respect of all people who love freedom. I guess The French Resistance or those who revolted against the Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto and even the Boers who fought for independence from Britain, were also referred to as "terrorists" or "bandits" or similiar terms by their powerful enemies. Does that in any way delegitimize their struggle?

If you've really read the book by Jacques Pauw, then I wonder how you can have the audacity to doubt, that these state-terrorists of Vlakplaas and of the "Security Branch" were acting on direct orders from the white supremacist minority regime? The book, while dealing with mainly one element of Apartheid (state terrorism), exposes the criminal and corrupt nature of this regime.

What's your opinion on the fact, that most of these state terrorists were never convicted for their murders and are walking around freely now? Is that the kind of justice that you are advocating?

I suggest we sentence these mass murderers and then we can start to build our nation.

Since you've mentioned Israel -
I recommend "The Unspoken Alliance: Israel's Secret Relationship with Apartheid South Africa" by Sasha Polakow-Suransky.

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
