#BDS: ACTION ALERT: Petition in defence of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu

"We the undersigned give our support to Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu as a most appropriate patron of the South African Holocaust Foundation.

Tutu's life has been lived in the spirit of "never again" - the ultimate lesson of the Holocaust  

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has publicly criticised Israeli policy towards Palestinians living in Gaza and the West Bank. He has also criticised Palestinian attacks on Israeli civilians. These criticisms are well-known.

Recently, his criticisms of Israeli policy have elicited bitter personal attacks. Amidst calls for him to be removed as Patron of the Cape Town and Johannesburg Holocaust Centres of the South African Holocaust Foundation, Tutu has been attacked and labelled an"anti-Semite" and a "bigot"."

Please sign the petitionhttp://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/defend-tutu/.
