South Africa disputes WND

The semi-official South Africa News Service has taken the unusual action of denouncing WorldNetDaily's exposť of a government plan for Draconian Internet monitoring and censorship. The Marxist government of South Africa is pushing - under the guise of crime-fighting - an intrusive Internet-monitoring bill that would allow officials to intercept all postal and electronic communications virtually at will. The bill is based on similar measures enforced on the Internet by the communist dictatorship in China. South Africa and China are new, if not strong, allies in the post-apartheid era.
