When a celebrated "man of peace" such as Tutu can get it so wrong, I really worry for humanity. Jews must remain self-reliant with regard to security. Would a pullback of the fence to the '67 line make any difference in Arab desire to destroy Israel? Is it reasonable to have two capitals in one city? Will that be a peaceful city? Can the Pals get a Right of Return? The answer to all these questions is an unequivcal "no."
