Mr. Rozett: with deep respect, I suggest that it is you who don't understand the complexities put forth by Bishop Tutu. What you say about Israel's creation, and assistance/opposition, is true. What you won't recognize is that the convergence of events -- holocaust included -- resulted in the State of Israel. Without WWII, would Jews have fled Europe en masse, before/during/after WWII, if not for it? Tutu's statement takes away neither from the holocaust nor Israel's struggles...it does not say WHO caused the Palestinian suffering, which may fall both on Western Europe/USA and on Arab nations refusing Palestinian entry.This is a complex issue, and unless you shed your own world view, it is hard to understand Tutu -- I do hope Israelis can try. Offense need not be perceived when none is given, if all complexities are recognized.
