From a specific side you can hear almost nothing about the death of the anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela.
Why is that ?
Because they themselves operate segregation.
Did you know Israel does not allow Israeli nationality for all residents but separated by ethnic origin. See judgment of the Supreme Court in Jerusalem.
Parsifal December 7, 2013

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz commented on the verdict, saying: "The state and its legislators must relate to all its citizens as Israeli citizens and eliminate the nationality line item in the Population Registry".
There is namely whether Jew, Arab, Druze, Circassian or whatever.
By 2005, the breed was also on the identity cards.
The visible symbol of the separation is the transverse through Palestine 700km long 8 meter high Apartheid Wall, as well as the roads Palestinians can not drive and the settlements exclusively for Jews, which were built on stolen land.
Nelson Mandela has not only fought for the abolition of apartheid in South Africa, but throughout the world for the end of racial segregation.
On December 4, 1997 Mandela addressed the following greeting words in Pretoria on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People to the participants:
'…I have come to join you today to add our own voice to the universal call for Palestinian self-determination and statehood.
We would be beneath our own reason for existence as government and as a nation, if the resolution of the problems of the Middle East did not feature prominently on our agenda.
We know only too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians'.
At the XII. Meeting of the then 113 members (now 118) of the Non-Aligned Movement States (Non-Aligned Movement, NAM) in Durban on September 2 and 3, 1998 Nelson Mandela was the Chairman.
He criticized the Israeli government of Netanyahu in the strongest terms, in which he said in his opening speech:
'We remain deeply concerned about the situation in the Middle East, especially the positions which occupies the government of Netanyahu in Israel, has blocked the progress towards a just and peaceful settlement, including the formation of a sovereign state of Palestine.
The international community and the United States in particular have a responsibility to ensure that this matter will be addressed expeditiously.
We should not allow the narrow, chauvinistic interests of the current government in Israel, to succeed the blocking of the prospect of a lasting and just peace in the Middle East'
What is Chauvinism ?
It is the belief in the superiority of their own group and because they belong to this group would feel superior to other people and depreciate them.
This is what happens in Palestine.
The original population of the Palestinians are regarded as second-class citizens, discriminated, marginalized, expelled or chased away.
After the leader of the Palestinians Yasser Arafat in 2004 suddenly fell ill and died (was murdered), Nelson Mandela described him by saying,
'Yasser Arafat was one of the outstanding freedom fighters of this generation, one who sacrificed his life for the cause of the Palestinian people.
We honor his memory today.
We express our sincerest condolences to his wife, his family and the Palestinian people.
With great sadness we note his and his people’s dream about a Palestinian state has not been realized until now.'
Exactly the powers unconditionally support Israel in its apartheid policy, now shed most of crocodile tears over the demise of the fighter against apartheid.
Where are the tears for the thousands upon thousands of Palestinians who have been killed by the Zionist racism, by the expulsion, occupation and separation in the last 60 years ?
Mandela was in prison and dreamed to see the end of apartheid in South Africa AND in Israel.
Only half of his dream has come true.
