The Incredible Hero: David Irving - Truth Telling Historian
I have tremendous respect for David Irving. This British man did the most incredible work doing research and telling the truth about Hitler, the NAZIS and Germany. He‘s very old now. Download everything you can from his website and if possible buy his books and support him. This is the most incredible man to come out of Britain in modern times.

[Solidarity is actually a white trade union. Its the only one of its kind in SA. But it seems to now have some black members. Its Afrikaans controlled and run. Sasol makes petrol from coal. That is a German technology invented by the NAZIs. It is a fabulous system. Now it is in the hands of black communist trash. Jan]

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – Hundreds of members of South Africa’s mainly white Solidarity union marched to the offices of petrochemicals Sasol in Johannesburg on Thursday to protest against a share scheme that was offered exclusively to black staff.

Solidarity’s chief executive Dirk Hermann said the union had filed an unfair racial discrimination case at the labour court in an attempt to get white workers included in the scheme.

During the march, Solidarity leaders delivered a memorandum to both Sasol and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange complaining about being excluded from the share plan.

“If South Africa accepts racial exclusion as normal it’s a bad day for South African democracy,” Hermann told union members holding placards with slogans written in Afrikaans saying “my work also has worth” and “stop racial segregation”.

Sasol, which is known for pioneering the conversion of coal to fuel, said it was studying the memorandum and could not immediately comment on the court case.

“We value our relationship with Solidarity and support the constitutional right of all workers to demonstrate according to the appropriate legal parameters,” Sasol said in an emailed response to questions.

South African companies are required to meet quotas on black ownership, employment and procurement as part of a drive to reverse decades of exclusion under apartheid. Meeting the rules makes a company more likely to qualify for government tenders.

Solidarity, which has around 6,300 members, last month held a strike at Sasol’s synthetic fuel plant in Secunda, northeast of Johannesburg, and embarked on a go-slow at Sasol’s facilities.

Video: Hamas attack on Israel: Is this a Life or Death fight for the existence of Israel?
Some South African supporters of Loving Life asked for my opinion of this war in Israel and what it could lead to. This is my analysis of the Middle East and what I think about this war between Israel and Hamas. I also look at the Syrian Civil war and we take a look at ALL the Arab/Muslim nations from Egypt to Iran and what threats they might pose to Israel. I also discuss American and Russian military power in the region. Can the region go nuclear? I go into quite a lot of political and military analysis of this conflict.
