    I have watched Tutu for years and have commented before. Where the idea comes from that he is a good humanitarian soul, is beyond me. Certainly when it comes to Jews and Israel his Nobel Prize is a ridiculous farce. He was condemning you at every opportunity, long before the war in Gaza and long before the security barrier. Because of world wide sympathy in the struggle for liberation against Apartheid in S Africa, Tutu became prominent. He was not a high profile political leader and he personally was protected against the system by the Anglican church. If you consider any of his utterances , they are full of meaningless cliches which he regurgitates ad nauseum. I believe his children live in the U SA, where he has also spent a great amount of time, including for medical treatment. He was involved with activist Randall Robinson about whom one no longer hears. Now that Tutu no longer has a cause back at home, he has found an opportunity to jump on the Palestine/ Israel bandwagon.
