Pallo Jordan, (Dr. Zwelendinga Jodan) has stated his elation at the death of Margaret Thatcher. As a member of humanity; this is a matter of distress. In any civilization it has always been the sentiment, to applaud a fallen enemy.
The strength of a victorious force is only measured by the strength of those overcome. Dr. (And I use this tem in its broadest possible meaning) Jordan, chose to berate a person whom, not fully supportive, still imposed sanctions on his old time enemy (being the whites in the Republic of South Africa).
Margaret Thatcher has been the source of huge controversy. Her stance on unions and their effect on coal mining has long been a bone of contention. She had a very mild, yet present doubt when it came to the total destruction of South Africa with the flight of the ever powerful banner of anti-apartheid.
To be truthful, I was still not much more than a child when her time in government ended. And for that reason I can only précis the facts as it were handed down to me.
The most bitter of enemies have saluted each other’s chivalry over many centuries. To not salute your enemy is a means of describing that your victory is one without honour
You may dispute everything I have said up until this point; it is of little empathic value. Yet stating that the death of someone, anyone… Is “Good riddance”[i] is simply not human.
Pallo Jordan exposed himself as a man without honour. He has outed himself as simple terrorist; because freedom fighters have at least a little measure of honour.
