Commenting article: South Africa Refuses Dalai Lama Visa Over 2010 World Cup

South Africa has refused the Dalai Lama a visa over concerns that his visit will shift focus away from 2010 Football World Cup.

He was invited to attend an international peace conference in Johannesburg the upcoming week, a presidential spokesman, Thabo Masebe, said, as cited by CNN.

The Tibetan spiritual leader and Nobel Laureate did not receive a visa because it was not in South Africa's interest for him to attend, he added.

So this is how South Africa reacts- have they forgotten so quickly the position of Black South Africans and who supported them??? I dont remember China ever supporting teh Blacks in South Africa. Shame on South Africa.
