Archbishop Tutu, please be fair
Maurice Ostroff reports on Archbishop Desmond Tutu's appointment as head of the UN fact-finding mission into the deaths of Palestinians at Beit Hanun. While finding the decision a logical choice in light of his record as chairman of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Committee, Maurice questions if he can overcome his long held anti-Israel bias, a result of historic links between Tutu's ANC and the Palestinians PLO. He highlights the critical differences Tutu should consider between the South African and Palestinian situations.
Under attack online?

Zionism is not a monstrous plot. It is not Nazism or Fascism or Communism or Colonialism. It is just the national movement of the Jewish people. It has been vilified by anti-Semitic and Marxist ideologues as well as by Islamist extremists. You owe it to yourself to find out the truth. We present articles and historical resources, discussion of the issues and maps that help you understand what it is about.
