A closer, more objective view of Desmond Tutu's dismaying positions on Israel

A contributor to the American Thinker's written about the anti-Israeli positions the late archbishop Desmond Tutu took, which I'd rather stupidly overlooked last time I mentioned him:
If Willie Sutton, the bank robber, would instantly have known the answer if asked “Was Archibishop Desmond Tutu anti-Israel or an anti-Semite?” After all, when asked why he robbed banks, Sutton explained, “That’s where the money is.” The iron logic of this bold answer holds the clue to Desmond Tutu’s well-known antipathy to Israel. Why hate Israel rather than any other country? Willie Sutton would say because that’s where the Jews are.

If he’d heard that, Tutu’s beloved grin would melt into a grimace. Tugging at his crimson Episcopal cape, he would pontificate that, “The government of Israel is placed on a pedestal, and to criticize it is to be immediately dubbed anti-Semitic.” All of which leaves the real question gaping like an untreated wound: Can a person dislike Israel yet like Jews?

It took me a book to answer that, followed by 30 chapters of a manuscript at the publishers elaborating and illustrating an ultra-sensitivity to a nation that dares to exist. It’s not possible, we’ll find, to cut the personality down the middle, to experience a wild disorder when Israel is considered and a calm equanimity when Jews are. Tutu, the rabid anti-Zionist, was no exception.
Alan Dershowitz once took issue with Tutu too. It's really a terrible, regrettable shame Tutu had to be like that, because that's just one of the ways Islamofascism was able to gain footholds in this now collapsing world of ours, along with communist mentality that's only furthering the damage.

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.
