Saperstein Citizens: Religious Fanatics with a small degree of — cooperate with the State to implement EoP intnl law — Rationality
You realize I am a religious fanatic; but there is small degree of rationality in me. If someone had come to me & said [voting to support EoP intnl law] to give up [overbreeding / consumption], would benefit the safety of Israel. … We will [cooperate & ration; or] pack our bags & go. – [EoP Amended] Moshe Saperstein; Highway 51: Withdrawal from Gaza.
Gen Hacohen, Ordered by PM Sharon to be Commander of Disengagement from Gaza:
BG: PM Arik Sharon, Attaturk & Fanatics with a small degree of rationality:
“He was a senior commander who went with his units from house to house, from bunker to bunker, from orange grove to orange grove; to explain what he meant. And three months later, Gaza was quiet. Terrorism was crushed with an iron fist, with a cruel hand. He cast fear into Gaza. …. They were afraid of him, really scared. He explained to me once in a very simple manner; that he went to put an end to terrorism in Gaza. He was head of Southern Command. His method was simple. Every Arab caught holding a weapon; was shot on the spot.” — Eli Landau & Uri Avnery; Anna Bens: Israels Generals: Ariel Sharon.
“Attaturk knew that for his movement to succeed and be permanent. He had to create a struggle that was initiated and supported by the people. Everything had to be legitimate and ideologically well-founded. A revolutionary ideal at the time it was announced to the whole country from the city of Amasia.” – Mark Campbell: Mustafa Kemal Attuturk: Attaturk the Feminist Warrior.
“We wanted our approach and modus operandi to be clearly understood and that we would not need to explain what we were doing. I would compare this to a statue set up in a town, such as Rodin’s “Burghers of Calais”, for example. If you have to explain the meaning or the idea, the artist has failed in his intention. We all in fact knew that the entire operation would so to speak take place on stage, with us as the actors, watched by 8,000 journalists from around the world. These had come to show the world how Jews treat their brothers during a sort of civil war. Without wishing to blow my own trumpet, I can say that we created a unique, historic situation. We were involved in a real confrontation and conflict that was extremely painful for all concerned. Despite everything, we succeeded, in part because we had clearly delineated boundaries within which to contain events, so that no blood would be shed. This was the spirit in which we worked, striking the balance between essentially Jewish behavior and the necessities of a military operation.” – Maj Gen Gershon Hacohen; Shalom Magazine: Sensitivity and Determination.

As Army Chief of Staff, I was in no position to say if I was for or against the evacuation. It was my duty to analyze the possible pros and cons. When asked whether Gaza is a strategic military asset to the State of Israel, I said no. On the other hand, leaving Gaza without controls in place, could turn the Gaza strip into a strategic threat. I thought that if we do leave Gaza, it be contingent on the Palestinians paying a heavy price. That didn’t happen. .. How did we get to this situation that it is legitimate to evacuate Jews from Palestinian State land, but not Palestinians from Jewish State land? .. If there was good will then these things could be settled.. coexistence. Why does it have to end up in war? … These days there is talk within Israel about a unilateral withdrawal. But what moves can you make when the other side doesn’t even accept your very existence, and any border you draw, will be the border from which they’ll continue to fight you. … It’s easy to label people. He’s right wing, don’t talk to him. She’s left wing, don’t listen to her. – Moshe Bogi Ya’alon, Former: Israel Defence Forces: Chief of Staff; Highway 51: Withdrawal from Gaza.
It’s your right as a citizen to consider the government corrupt, and go to a more enlightened place. However once the government decides; not to obey, is destructive. You can now kiss the entire State of Israel goodbye. Why? Because democracy is important. That’s what gives us the tools to deal with all our external enemies, and internal problems, and we have plenty of both. … Trying to understand a person who is logical, but his logic is based on faith, is very difficult to understand. … Honestly my words were meant to calm, and to ease the swallowing of the pill. But this pill was bitter and it remained bitter. I was never able to convince anyone to leave their home, without them resisting in some way.. – Dudi Chaloni, IDF Soldier; Highway 51: unSettled / Withdrawal from Gaza.
Its clear when you want to survive in the Middle East, where power dictates, and every time you make a good-will gesture; it is interpreted as a sign of weakness or fear, then you need to prove your might all over again. That’s the Middle East, power is the driving force. Don’t fool yourself, give up all the territories, and even if you’re left standing on one leg, on one floor tile, in the middle of Tel Aviv, they’ll probably make demands on that floor tile as well. ….. Every person who lives in the State of Israel expands the borders of Israel. You live on the land, you determine the border. Like its done all over the world, from antiquity to modern times. And today’s debate over issues like ’48 borders or ’67 borders, in my opinion, seems insignificant, in relation to the history of the people of Israel, in the State of Israel.- Meir Shimoni; Highway 51: Withdrawal from Gaza.
The borders of the State of Israel are what God gave us in the Bible. Political circumstances may be such that we cannot occupy those borders at a particular time, but it is according to the Bible simply forbidden, to give up what you possess. You realize of course that I am a religious fanatic; but there is some small degree of rationality in me. If someone had come to me and said that giving up Gaza and Northern Samaria, would actually benefit the safety of the rest of Israel. Even though I believe it’s a mistake, I can understand it. We will pack our bags and we can go. But nobody, not the government, not the United Nations, not the United States, you name it. Nobody has explained what the benefit is to Israel for pulling out of here. And all I ever hear is Give Peace a Chance. Leaving here is a bold move for peace. What bold move for peace? It’s absolutely senseless. …. Everyone out here is so laid back, they are practically laid out. I would have preferred an old age home. Its true, I’ve been ready for an old age home since my Bar Mitzvah, but since she calls the shots, and wanted to go out and have an adventure, before they send us to the glue factory.. We came out here. – [EoP Bold Emphasis] Moshe Saperstein; Highway 51: Withdrawal from Gaza.

Bram Fischer: Afrikaner Revolutionary.
“There is another and more compelling reason for my plea and why I persist in it. I accept the general rule that for the protection of a society laws should by obeyed. But when the [WiP] laws themselves become immoral and require the citizen to take part in an organised system of oppression – if only by his [breeding/consumption addiction] silence or apathy – then I believe that a higher duty arises. This compels one to refuse to recognise such [WiP] laws.” – [EoP Amended] Bram Fisher; I Did What was Right’ Statement from the Dock by Bram Fischer after the conclusion of the Rivonia Trial, 1966

[EoP] Democracy will eventually be won, of that there can be no doubt. The question is whether it can be achieved peacefully or only by violence. A peaceful transition can be brought about if the Government agrees to negotiation with all sections of the people and, in particular, with the [EoP] leaders at present jailed on Robben Island or in exile. … The United Nations can bring home to white South Africans the recognition that the maintenance of [WiP] supremacy is doomed. I doubt even whether it would be necessary to apply sanctions, boycotts, embargoes. I have no doubt that if South Africans really believed that certain fundamental sanctions would be imposed after the lapse of some specified time, they could well rid themselves of [WiP] apartheid, and thus avoid bloodshed more fearful than ever occurred in Algeria. – [EoP Amended] Bram Fischer, 22 January 1965 fugitive message from ‘somewhere in South Africa’.

» SQSwans: Reports: Bram Fischer: A Message from Underground.
Abram Fischer, commonly known as Bram Fischer, (23 April 1908 Bloemfontein – 8 May 1975 Bloemfontein) was a South African lawyer of Afrikaner descent, notable for anti-apartheid activism and for the legal defence of anti-apartheid figures, including Nelson Mandela at the Rivonia Trial. Following the trial he was himself put on trial accused of furthering communism. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, and diagnosed with cancer while in prison. The South African Prisons Act was extended to include his brother’s house in Bloemfontein where he died two months later.
In 1937, Fischer married Molly Krige, a niece of Jan Smuts; the couple had three children. Their son, Paul died of cystic fibrosis at the age of 23 while Fischer was in prison. Molly became involved in politics and was detained without trial during the 1960 state of emergency declared after the Sharpeville massacre. In 1964, Bram, Molly and a friend, Liz Franklin, were driving to Cape Town for daughter Ilse’s 21st birthday. Bram swerved the car to avoid hitting a cow that had strayed onto the road. The car veered off the road and overturned into a river, causing Molly to drown. Bram was devastated and inconsolable, devoting himself more than ever to his secret life as a leader of the South African Communist Party (SACP).
Fischer joined the South African Communist Party (SACP) in the 1940s and soon rose to leadership positions. The SACP had a close relationship with the African National Congress (ANC) and in 1943, Fischer co-authored revisions to the constitution of the ANC. In 1946 he was charged with incitement arising out of his position as a leader of the SACP and the African Mine Workers’ Strike of that year.
Alongside Issy Maisels and others, Fischer played an integral role on the defense team in the Treason Trial of 1956 – 1961 where Mandela and many other anti-apartheid activists were acquitted on 29 March 1961. In his autobiography, Mandela affectionately recalls Fischer reading the left wing publication New Age at his table during the trial proceedings.
Fischer led Nelson Mandela’s legal defense team at the Rivonia Trial of 1963 – 1964. By a coincidence, Fischer had not been present at the raid on Liliesleaf Farm, although he had in fact been part of the trusted Rivonia inner circle. A number of documents seized by authorities were in his handwriting.
Mandela and co-defendants were sentenced to life imprisonment instead of the death penalty, which the state prosecutor Percy Yutar had been asking for. This was considered a victory for the defence. International pressure also played a role. At this time, Fischer’s role as leader of the SACP was unknown even to his closest white friends.
After the verdict, Bram Fischer visited the Rivonia trial prisoners on Robben Island to discuss the question of an appeal in their case. Wishing to protect the prisoners, he did not tell them of his wife’s death one week earlier. After the meeting, Mandela learned about Mrs Fischer’s death and wrote to Fischer, a letter that his prison guards never delivered. A few days later Fischer was himself arrested, held in solitary confinement for three days and then released. On 23 September 1964, he was again arrested and joined the 12 white men and women facing charges of being members of the now illegal South African Communist Party.
Fischer was released on bail to handle a patent case in London. He applied for bail to attend to his case. In his appeal to Court in the bail application he stated: “I am an Afrikaner. My home is in South Africa. I will not leave my country because my political beliefs conflict with those of the Government.”
Fischer returned to South Africa to face trial despite pressure put on him to forgo his £5,000 bail and go into exile. One day, after proceedings began, he did not arrive at Court and instead sent a letter to his counsel, Harold Hanson which was read out in court. He wrote:
“By the time this reaches you I shall be a long way from Johannesburg and shall absent myself from the remainder of the trial. But I shall still be in the country to which I said I would return when I was granted bail. I wish you to inform the Court that my absence, though deliberate, is not intended in any way to be disrespectful. Nor is it prompted by any fear of the punishment which might be inflicted on me. Indeed I realise fully that my eventual punishment may be increased by my present conduct…
“My decision was made only because I believe that it is the duty of every true opponent of this Government to remain in this country and to oppose its monstrous policy of apartheid with every means in his power. That is what I shall do for as long as I can…
“What is needed is for White South Africans to shake themselves out of their complacency, a complacency intensified by the present economic boom built upon racial discrimination. Unless this whole intolerable system is changed radically and rapidly, disaster must follow. Appalling bloodshed and civil war will become inevitable because, as long as there is oppression of a majority, such oppression will be fought with increasing hatred.
Fischer went underground to support the liberation struggle against apartheid. In doing so, went against the advice of Mandela, who had advised him to support the struggle in the courtroom, “where people could see this Afrikaner son of a judge president fighting for the rights of the powerless. But he could not let others suffer while he remained free. […] Bram did not want to ask others to make a sacrifice that he was unwilling to make himself.”
Fischer was struck off the advocate’s roll in 1965 in a trial completed in his absence. Advocates Harold Hanson, Sydney Kentridge, and Arthur Chaskalson defended him at the hearing. – Wits Vuvuzela: 10 Things you didn’t know about Bram Fischer.
Bram has become ingrained into the fabric of South Africa and in that respect to me, he is still an image, not only for the present, but for the future. In that sense he feels to me still like a prototype, still moving out there ahead of everybody else. As I put it in the book, he came out of Afrikaner nationalism, he died belonging to the whole of South Africa. He never saw this as a betrayal of Afrikaner identity, but rather as its fulfillment, its extension towards a true meaning of the name African. He was a white man able to undertake in the course of his own life, the personal transformation that must accompany, if not herald the political and he took it on. A story of identity, its retention, and extension into the marrow of his own life. That I think is a story that has resonance for everyone. In that way I think Bram Fischer is still a challenge to us all – Stephen Clingman; Rhodes Trust: Feb 2014: Professor Clingman speaking about life of Bram Fischer.
Although widely known as the Afrikaner Communist who saved Nelson Mandela from the gallows, very little is known about Bram Fischer the man. Fischer was a respected Senior Advocate at the Johannesburg Bar who chose to side with the oppressed and went underground to join the armed struggle. He was arrested on 5 November 1965 after almost 10 months on the run. ‘I owed it to the political prisoners, to the banished, to the silenced and to those under house arrest not to remain a spectator, but to act.’
These words spoken by Bram Fischer in his statement from the dock during his treason trial were followed by a life sentence. Scion of a proudly Afrikaner family that included a prime minister and a judge president of the Orange Free State, he would seem to be an unlikely hero of the liberation movement. Uncompromising in his political beliefs and driven by an unshakeable integrity and a commitment to the dream of a non-racial democracy, Fischer was also humorous, fun-loving and a family man, devoted to his wife and children.
The many facets of this remarkable man are refl ected in The Bram Fischer Waltz, Harry Kalmer’s lyrical tribute. A brief and intense work, with the protagonist as narrator, this one person play takes the audience through a roller coaster of emotions as it tells Fischer’s story.
The play won The Standard Bank Silver Ovation Award when it premiered in English at 2013 the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown and was awarded the Adelaide Tambo Award for Human Rights in the Arts in 2014 . – The text is supplemented by a foreword by Adv George Bizos and an introduction by the playwright, reflecting on the path that led him to write the play, and an afterword by Yvonne Malan, entitled ‘The Power of Moral Courage’.
