RAMALLAH, West Bank---Palestinians mourned
Nelson Mandela as their most loyal champion,
lighting candles in special prayer services yes-
terday and holding his picture like a shield in
confrontations with Israeli troops.
But the death of the South African leader
who famously said that "our freedom is incom-
plete without the freedom of the Palestinians"
also reminded many here of how far they are
from establishing a state of their own.
US-mediated talks between Israelis and Pales-
tinians on the terms of such a state have reached
their mid-way point and appear bogged down.
"I don t think our leaders or the Israeli leaders
or the American leaders will make peace here,"
Wael Shihadeh, 52, said yesterday while chopping
eggplants in the kitchen of a Ramallah restau-
rant. Palestinians lack a leader of Mandela s
caliber, he said.
Palestinian activists have compared Mandela s
struggle against apartheid to theirs against Israeli
occupation---a parallel Israel rejects---and some
increasingly look to South Africa for help in
pressure campaigns against Israel.
Many South Africans also equate the Israeli
treatment of Palestinians with their former
apartheid regime s abuse of blacks.
Last year, South Africa s government decided
that goods imported from Israeli West Bank
settlements cannot not be labeled "product of
Israel." In 2011, the University of Johannesburg
became the world s first to impose an academic
boycott on Israel.
In October, veteran anti-apartheid leader
Ahmed Kathrada, who was convicted alongside
Mandela in 1964, launched a campaign from
Mandela s former prison cell for Marwan Bargh-
outi. The Palestinian uprising leader was jailed
11 years ago and is serving five life terms after
being convicted of a role in the uprising-related
killings of four Israelis and a Greek monk.
Asked about the use of violence by the Pales-
tinians, Kathrada noted that Mandela s African
National Congress also turned to it at one point.
"When everything failed, every peaceful
method failed, we also had to resort to armed
struggle, realizing that the main struggle will
be where masses of people were involved," the
84-year-old said by phone from South Africa.
"We cannot prescribe to the Palestinian people
how they should conduct their struggle," added
Kathrada, who spent 26 years in prison, or a
year less than Mandela, much of it in the same
Palestinian activists have
compared Mandela's struggle
against apartheid to theirs
against Israeli occupation---a
parallel Israel rejects---and some
increasingly look to South
Africa for help in pressure
campaigns against Israel.
Many South Africans also

Palestinians with their former
apartheid regime's abuse of
