At an appearance in Boston in 2002, Bishop Desmond Tutu succinctly described his view of Israel: “Israel is like Hitler and apartheid.” So when the UN Human Rights Council went looking for someone to head a fact-finding mission to the Gaza Strip town of Beit Hanun, where an IDF artillery barrage killed 19 civilians earlier this month, Tutu naturally came to mind. Today’s Jerusalem Post reports: “Tutu to head UN rights commission to Gaza.” Sickening. (Thanks to reader William Katz.)
UPDATE: Salvatori Center Visiting Fellow Richard Samuelson writes:
Could also go with “Do do, that Tutu that you do so well…”
And he asks:
Is it worth pointing out one glaring difference? A Palestinian can become a Jew. No black South African could become white.
