November 2005 Edition.


November 2005 edition

This cyber-newsletter has often warned in the past about the danger posed to the entire West by expansionist Islam. The past few weeks, however, have witnessed two most dramatic examples of just what a dire threat Islam poses to us all.

Firstly the newly-installed fundamentalist Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called for the complete destruction of the State of Israel, thus confirming without a shadow of doubt that Islamic Iran is still a fully paid-up member of the Axis of Evil. This was followed by France erupting in an orgy of seemingly co-ordinated riots - and make no bones about it, the rioters were not merely "disaffected youths" as certain sections of the media tried to suggest, they were exclusively third-world immigrants, almost entirely Islamic.

In expressing outrage at Ahmadinejad's hysterical call for the destruction of Israel Tony Blair stated that it was without precedent for a world leader to advocate the complete annihilation of another state. One only needs a cursory knowledge of 20th century history to realise that this isn't true however. This after all is exactly what the Nazis did to one European country after another - but more significantly this is what Blair's predecessors as Labour leader, Wilson and Callaghan, advocated regarding Rhodesia and South-West Africa, not to mention South Africa itself if we accept that today's ANC-ruled hell-hole is a completely different entity to the true South African nation which we knew and loved.

Be this as it may, Blair is to be congratulated upon condemning Ahmadinejad's evil outburst in the strongest possible terms. There are those of us who will never forget that the State of Israel was one of South Africa's most reliable international friends during the days of civilised rule. Israel co-operated closely with South Africa in the fields of military expertise, security and trade, and it is probably true to say that without such co-operation the country would have found it very difficult to survive. But there is another more fundamental reason why Israel and White South Africa had so much in common, and that is because both nations recognised the importance of ethnicity in their respective identities. Bearing this in mind it is therefore not surprising that following the fall of White South Africa the forces of international egalitarianism should now regard the State of Israel as their next target, and in this they find themselves in common cause with the Mohammedan religion which seeks to proselytize everyone regardless of their ethnic identity. Just as Israel supported South Africa during its hour of need, so now must we support Israel when threatened by the likes of Ahmadinejad.

But it is the anarchy in France which highlights the Islamic threat to the very heart of European civilisation. The French only have themselves to blame in this respect however. Firstly, in their "revolutionary zeal" they allowed millions of third-world (mainly Islamic) interlopers to enter their shores in a spirit of "Liberty, Fraternity, Equality". Secondly the Chirac Government stupidly believed that they could appease international Islamic terrorism by not supporting the West's War against Terrorism in Iraq. France is now paying a very heavy price for these two grave mistakes.

The West must now take decisive action on both these two fronts. With Western troops stationed in both Afghanistan and Iraq it should be relatively easy to conduct a pincer movement to occupy Iran and thereby to eliminate their evil regime and the nuclear threat which it possesses. Likewise the French must grasp the nettle and take swift action to start repatriating "the enemy within".



A small delegation of Springbok Club and the London Swinton Circle members visited Gibraltar last month in order to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.

A similar delegation visited Gibraltar last year in order to help celebrate the 300th anniversary of Gibraltar becoming British, and good and fruitful contacts were made with the Gibraltar Heritage Trust, the Gibraltar Self-Determination Group and the Gibraltar Conservative Association.

This year's events were co-ordinated by the Gibraltar Heritage Trust, and begun with a wreath-laying ceremony at the Trafalgar Cemetery at mid-day on Trafalgar Day itself. Wreaths were laid on the grave of Capt. Thomas Norman by Alan Harvey representing the Springbok Club and on the grave of Lieut. William Forster by Allan Robertson representing the London Swinton Circle. The inscription on the wreath laid on the grave of Capt. Thomas Norman read as follows: "To the immortal memory of all the brave Trafalgar heroes from your grateful Empire heirs of the Springbok Club". Short speeches were made by both wreath-layers to the gathered crowd, and Robin Willow of the London Swinton Circle then sung the Gibraltar national anthem.

During the evening of Trafalgar Day members of the delegation were invited to partake in celebrations at Parson's Lodge Battery, where, after a riveting talk on the history of the build-up to the Battle of Trafalgar by Denis King, they were able to witness a spectacular Beating Retreat ceremony performed by the band of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment on the Rosia Bay parade ground below. This was followed by a most sumptuous Bicentenary Dinner organised by the Gibraltar Heritage Trust at Parson's Lodge itself, at which Robin Willow again sung the Gibraltar national anthem and other numbers.

The following day members of the delegation joined a most enjoyable coach trip staged by the Gibraltar Heritage Trust to Cape Trafalgar, during which expert commentaries were given by Joe Desoisa and Denis King. En route the party visited the Spanish Naval Museum and the Parthenon at San Fernando, before making a moving visit to the tip of Cape Trafalgar.

On Monday 24th October a party of members from the Friends of Gibraltar Heritage Society arrived on the Rock for a week's visit under the leadership of Michael Brufal (the 9th Marques de Lendinez), and the two groups met up at a introductory meeting at the Rock Hotel. After uplifting welcoming speeches by Joe Ballantine and Dave Eveson of the GHT the party were then treated to a short musical performance by Robin Willow who again sung the Gibraltar national anthem and other numbers, before Richard Garcia gave a most enthralling talk entitled: "The development of regular maritime links between Gibraltar and Great Britain in the aftermath of the Battle of Trafalgar".

The following day saw a visit of the Convent (the Governor's residence) being undertaken by members of both groups. After a most eloquent welcome given by Lady Richards, the Governor's wife, the party were treated to a highly informative conducted tour of the Convent, its gardens and the King's Chapel, again expertly conducted by Denis King.

Alas the Springbok Club/London Swinton Circle delegation had to leave Gibraltar at this stage, although the Friends of Gibraltar Heritage Society visit carried on with more most interesting events until the following Monday. All members of the delegation were most inspired by their visit however, and full of praise for the Gibraltar Heritage Trust for the superb itinerary which they had arranged. Their love of and support for Gibraltar rose even greater as a result of the visit, and all vowed that they would return.



A large party of Springbok Club members and supporters made a trip to the Lewes Bonfire celebrations earlier this month, which of course had the added significance of marking the 400th anniversary of the Discovery of the Gunpowder Plot this year.

For most of the evening most of the party followed the Cliffe Bonfire Society, who were to be congratulated upon marking the double centenary by parading a splendid new banner commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. As well as burning the traditional effigies of the terrorist Guy Fawkes and the instigator Pope Paul V, the Cliffe B.S. also burnt an effigy of Home Secretary Charles Clarke this year.

It was the bonfire of the South Street Bonfire Society which was attended however, which proved to be a most enjoyable display, with an excellent tableau illustrating the Gunpowder Plot Conspiracy being exploded, along with a superb display of fireworks.

Celebrations continued the following day, when several of the party members explored the historic village of Alfreston, before paying a visit to the Ram Inn in the nearby village of Firle.

Following our last "Good News" report about the abundance of water at Main Camp in Hwange National Park, we have just discovered that the situation in Sinamatella is very different.

We are being inundated with desperate appeals for help because there is NO water in Sinamatella. We are informed that National Parks has run out of diesel to run the pumps and all the water holes have been reduced to pools of mud.

People who have just returned from Sinamatella have reported seeing about 200 zebra and a number of antelope standing around a dry water hole, staring into it as if willing the water to appear. The animals look extremely forlorn, thirsty and dehydrated. They know there is no water anywhere else in the vicinity and in their dehydrated state, they don't have the energy to walk any great distance in search of water, so they wait. There is no doubt that they will all die of thirst if something is not done urgently.

Fuel is very scarce in Zimbabwe but we have managed to find some. The problem now is that we have to pay for it. National Parks have no funds, either to buy fuel for the pumps or to pay their employees' wages. We were told this morning that the employees in Sinamatella have all absconded because they haven't been paid.

In order to get the situation under control, we need at least 5,000 litres of diesel. We have found the diesel and we are now appealing to anyone who can help us pay for it. It costs US$ 1.00 or ZW$ 55,000.00 per litre so we are attempting to raise US$ 5,000 or ZW$ 275,000,000.00.

If anybody is in a position to help, either with money or with diesel, then please contact the ZCTF urgently at



We have recently been sent the following most interesting article from of all newspapers The Guardian, which inter alia acknowledges Mandela's terrorist crimes. It was written by Adam Nicholson and appeared in The Guardian of August 24th. Although we of course cannot agree with every word in this article, it still makes very informative reading. It reads as follows :-

"No one, I think, would put the attempt to liberate the Newchurch guinea pigs on a par with the anti-apartheid campaign in South Africa. A few thousand - or even a few tens of thousands - of furry laboratory animals is not on the same scale as an entire repressed nation. But perhaps the two struggles are not as far apart as you think. The Hall family's decision to close down their guinea-pigs-for-laboratories enterprise, and return to more traditional farming, is a result of terrorism. The family, and almost everyone they know, have been the target of sabotage, bomb hoaxes, hate mail, a paedophile smear campaign, malicious phone calls and arson attacks. Most appallingly, the body of Gladys Hammond,
a Hall family relative, was dug up and her bones kidnapped. Electricity pylons have been blown up. There have been demos outside the farm every
Sunday and Wednesday for the past five years.

"All of these are clearly forms of terror, delivered by people who have thought, and probably rightly, that their campaign for the better treatment of the guinea pigs would not get anywhere if they used more polite, or less violent methods. The science and government establishments have been set against them and, to stay true to their ideals, they have had no alternative.

"We all hate terrorists, but as a side-light on this nasty and bitter corner of modern life, it is interesting to read what Nelson Mandela, at his trial for violence and sabotage in October 1963, had to say about those crimes. This was the trial at which he was convicted and sent to Robben Island for life. He admitted quite freely that he was guilty of what he was accused of. 'I do not deny that I planned sabotage,' he told the court. 'I did not plan it in a spirit of recklessness, nor because I have any love of violence. I planned it as a result of a calm and sober assessment of the political situation. Without violence there would be no way open to the African people to succeed in their struggle.'

"As a small armed wing of the ANC, Mandela had formed Umkhonto we Sizwe, meaning Spear of the Nation, because without such a channel, any violence would have been chaotic and far more destructive. The leaders of the ANC felt they had no other option. Mandela quoted Chief Lutuli, who had led the ANC in the 1950s: 'Who will deny that 30 years of my life have been spent knocking in vain, patiently, moderately and modestly at a closed and barred door? What have been the fruits of moderation? The past 30 years have seen the greatest number of laws restricting our rights and progress, until today we have reached a stage where we have almost no rights at all.'

"It is largely forgotten now but Mandela received guerrilla training in Algeria. The notes he made from the lectures he attended there were produced in court. He studied Clausewitz, Mao Zedong and Che Guevara. He prepared himself, quite cold-headedly, as he told the court, for "guerrilla warfare. I wanted to be able to stand and fight with my people to share the hazards of war with them." It never came to that because he was caught and imprisoned before he could take up arms. The sabotage of government buildings and electricity pylons and setting up the training regimes for recruits was all he was responsible for.

"There is, in this comparison, a problem of scale and, to be honest, of seriousness, but there is not a deep or very real distinction in principle. Mandela's term for his control of Umkhonto we Sizwe was 'properly controlled violence'. Seen simply in tactical and strategic terms, that phrase would be perfectly appropriate for the things that animal rights activists have been doing to the Halls, their friends, families, employees and neighbours. Digging up the body of Gladys Hammond - deeply shocking as it is - is nevertheless a very precisely calibrated act of terror. Not in moral but in these tactical terms, you could see it as a form of 'properly controlled violence'."

This November will mark the 40th Anniversary of U.D.I. and to mark this important event I want to hear from you. Where were you on that November day? What were your thoughts about U.D.I and the lead up to the momentous announcement, either for or against? If you weren't in Rhodesia at the time let me know what brought you to the country after U.D.I.

I am a Rhodesian born and breed and am currently engaged on writing a PhD for the University of London on Rhodesia's road to Independence, and I want to hear from you all. By studying the histories, government papers and biographies of the leading figures of the time I can piece together what was in the mind of the leaders on both side, but what I want to know was what was in the mind of the ordinary Rhodesian. This is your chance to have your say. Any and all information is most welcome as my thesis will only be as good as the sources I have to work from.

If you want to send me your thoughts please do so to I would be happy to supply a 'phone number for anyone who wants to talk directly to me and I will be happy to meet face to face with anyone in the UK. I will also consider travelling to any part of
the world to hear your thoughts.

I will be happy to provide more information on my project to anyone who is interested, and to answer any questions you may have.

Thanks for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Julian Francis

No.84 : Mr. JOEY DEACON of Hemel Hempstead

Joey Deacon was one of the earliest supporters of the White Rhino Club (the predecessor of today's Springbok Club) when we re-centred operations in the UK during the early 1990s. Alas little has been seen or heard of him for several years now, and recently correspondence has been returned to us as he's evidently changed address. We would therefore be very keen to learn where he can now be contacted.



We are pleased to be able to announce that the London Swinton Circle has at last obtained its own web-site, which has already received a considerable amount of praise. It can be accessed at :-

There was no conceivable defence manpower basis for evicting the Jewish residents of Elei Sinai. It was purely political, just because it lay on the "wrong" side of the 1949 to 1967 line.

Sharon has gambled that withdrawal will put him in good stead with the State Dept. and Foreign Office, but of course there will only be demands for more concessions.

I am a member of Likud and if I had been an MK I would have voted against the expulsion. Sharon is by no means a consistent conservative and has had an erratic political career. I fear that he sees himself as Israel's De Gaulle, with Gaza as his Algerian pullout.

Nonetheless, we have to try and limit further damage. I am somewhat cheered to be reassured that Maale Adumim will be strengthened and linked by further building to Eastern Jerusalem. This will have the advantage of making it impossible for the Arabs to divide the Eternal City again-as was the case between 1949 and 1967.

"No surrender" and "Am Yisrael chai!"

Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001? Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from our nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was "desecrated" when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet? Well, I don't ...... I don't care at all.

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime in Saudi Arabia.

I'll care when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi tells the world he is sorry for hacking-off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling, slashed throat.

I'll care when the cowardly so-called "insurgents" in Iraq come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

I'll care when the American media stops pretending that their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead of the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave Marine roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank that I don't care.

When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed "special" food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being "mishandled," you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts that I don't care.
