Desmond Tutu passes away at 90

One of the leading and most admirable figures in the anti-apartheid movement in south Africa has passed on at 90 years of age:
Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and veteran of South Africa's struggle against white minority rule died on Sunday at the age of 90, the presidency said.

In 1984 Tutu Key dates in the life of South African cleric and activist Desmond Tutu won the Nobel Peace Prize for his non-violent opposition to apartheid. A decade later, he witnessed the ends of that regime and he chaired a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, set up to unearth atrocities committed during those dark days.

The outspoken Tutu was considered the nation's conscience by both Black and white, an enduring testament to his faith and spirit of reconciliation in a divided nation.
Tutu was certainly a good campaigner, similar to Martin Luther King. May his memory be admired for generations to come.

Update: then again, I'd completely missed/forgotten Tutu's regrettable kowtowing to the PLO, and enabling the BDS movement. No matter what good he may have done regarding the fight against apartheid, it doesn't excuse how he caused serious damage to Israel.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
