ORANGE FREE STATE, South Africa – The African dawn cried out with a radiant blaze of red and orange pastel strokes along the horizon. The Coeztee farmstead basked in the light of the emerging morning like a gleaming pearl, and golden fields swayed in the soft Orange State breeze.

“It’s paradise, isn’t it?” South African farmer Kobus Coeztee asked WorldNetDaily, marveling at the peaceful sunrise. “I am the fourth generation to farm this land, and Lord willing, there will be another five generations after me.”

This reporter observed a full day of back-breaking labor on Coetzee’s farm and was treated to a proper braii of lamb, an Afrikaner staple. Many Afrikaners also make a strong drink called “mampoer” from fermented peaches and other ingredients.

At risk of murder

Coeztee’s hopes for the future are threatened by the low-intensity warfare being waged against the Afrikaner people by radical blacks of the “Azania People’s Organization” or AZAPO.

There are 40,000 white farmers in South Africa. Over 1,200 have been murdered since 1994 – the year the Marxist African National Congress, backed by the United Nations, European Union, Russia, China and the U.S. State Department, took power.

Add to this another 6,000 attacks and the white Boer Afrikaner farmer is easily the highest at-risk group for murder on Earth. The ANC has responded to this crisis by blaming whites and putting a ban on crime statistics because they scare off foreign investment.

“I won’t hold my breath waiting for Oprah to call, or Jesse Jackson, Jimmy Carter or Al Sharpton,” Coetzee told WorldNetDaily.

“It’s politically correct to kill whites these days. What is so strange is the fact that we white farmers feed the black population. But look at Zimbabwe. The black leaders have engineered a famine against their own black citizens. It’s as if it’s all part of some horrible ‘master plan.’ Apparently, getting blacks to starve blacks to death doesn’t really bother anyone in the Western world.”

To the north, Zimbabwe’s Marxist dictator Robert Mugabe has terrorized the nation’s white farmers with state-sanctioned land seizures, torture, rape and murder.

“The world community has stood by and done nothing,” says Aletta Kloppers, Coetzee’s closest neighbor. “So we have no choice but to defend ourselves.”

Kloppers explained how rogue blacks broke into her farmhouse and tried to rape and rob her family, which includes four teen-age daughters. Many of the killings of white farmers include the torture, rape and mutilation of women, small children, toddlers and even babies.

“Fortunately, my husband and I were able to use our firearms to drive them off of our land. But they will be back,” she told WND.

Kloppers said that she hired a martial arts teacher to work with her family on hand-to-hand combat and knife fighting.

“Our daughters are beautiful, yes, but they are tough, too,” Kloppers said. “You won’t see the Afrikaner children in tattoos, gang clothes, riddled with diseases and their bodies filled with holes. We are Christians, and we will fight for Christian civilization. We know who our enemies are in the mass media, those who would destroy the minds and bodies of our children. When the war finally comes in this country and through the Western world, the cultural elites will be the first to be confronted. There are many South Africans, blacks, colored, Indians and others who feel as we do. We all want a future for our children.”

“We Afrikaners are a fair and decent people. We are glad apartheid is over, and we are ready to embrace change,” farmer Kalfi Van der Wat said. Van der Wat collects antique automobiles and stores them on his farm west of Johannesburg.

One of the latest problems facing South Africa’s farmers is that some of the farm killings appear to be drug-related. South African police say that Pakistanis have bought up several farms after the white owners were killed and began planting poppies of Central Asian origin.

“South Africa’s dirty little secret – well, there are many dirty secrets here – is that we are the transit point for 25 percent of the world’s drugs,” South African policewoman Debbie Botha told WorldNetDaily.

South Africa’s farmers, frustrated with an apathetic government that actually seems to “cheer on the killings of whites,” says Van der Wat, have turned to a variety of options in dealing with the crime wave.

Self-serve law enforcement

One option is the creation of private security companies, staffed by former elite special forces operators of the now defunct South African Defense Force. The SADF drove out Cuba and the Soviets from Angola in the 1980s and is known to have produced some of the world’s finest soldiers.

Several groups of farmers have sought the help of Executive Outcomes, led by former Apartheid-era SADF special forces members. EO is the world’s largest, private mercenary army and has fought in Angola, Sierra Leone, Papua New Guinea and other nations.

Yet despite their best efforts, the killings continue.

“The radical blacks hate us because we are strong, blonde, hard-working and productive. We came to South Africa and turned it into the richest country in the world, while before we came, the locals had been here for many centuries and did nothing with the land,” Coetzee explained.

Added Kloppers, “The farm-invasion problem is not only confined to South Africa. Look at Zimbabwe. Look at the call for white Australians to give their land back to the Aborigines. Look at the problems on the border with Mexico and the United States, and massive Third World immigration in Europe. European Western Civilization is totally under siege by the New World Order elite. But we are strong and smart, and we will survive as we always have.”

“We have fought the communists and the United Nations globalists for decades,” continued Kloppers. “We know their tactics. I can assure you there is indeed a plan for a Third Boer War, down to the last detail. It won’t take much to cripple South Africa’s cities and water supply, I can assure you. People are angry and ready for war. We have seen our women and children raped and killed. Sometimes a war is the only answer to your problems. Remember, the great Boer prophet Seer van Rensburg has prophesied that the whites will again come to rule in Southern Africa.”
