South African Archbishop Nominates Terrorist Leader For Nobel Peace Prize

3

South African archbishop and human rights activist Desmond Tutu, who was prominent in his country’s battle against apartheid, nominated terrorist leader Marwan Barghouti, who is currently serving five life sentences in an Israeli jail, for the Nobel Peace Prize.

“The nomination of Marwan Barghouti, a symbol of the Palestinian people’s struggle for freedom, constitutes a clear signal of support for the realization of the Palestinian people’s inalienable rights, including to self-determination,” wrote Tutu who is one of the earliest supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

Since April, Barghouti has also been nominated by the Arab Parliament, which represents dozens of Muslim states; Palestinian National Council speaker Saleem al-Zaanoun; Nobel Peace Prize laureate Adolfo Perez; Esquivel of Belgium’s parliament and Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union President Nabih Berri.

Barghouti led the military wing of the Al-Aqsa Brigades which perpetrated many deadly attacks and suicide bombings and was involved in operating the Raed Kami terrorist cell in Tulkarem which murdered many Israelis. He was jailed for organizing scores of suicide bombings during the Second Intifada.

  1. It should read “South African Archbishop and Jew hater Desmond Tutu nominates terrorist for Nobel Peace Prize.

  2. Nothing new or surprising here.

    Tutu has a decades-long record of:
    -Telling Jews to forgive the Nazis ym”s for the Holocaust.
    -Supporting the anti-Israel BDS boycott movement.
    -Comparing Israeli treatment of Arabs with the racist former South African government’s treatment of blacks.
    -Stating that people in the U.S. are afraid of “the Jewish lobby”.
    -Supporting the “Zionism equals racism” canard.
    -Complaining about the “Judaization of Jerusalem”.
    -Calling Israel’s blockade of Gaza (whose only purpose is keeping weapons out of Hamas’s hands) an “abomination”.

    Long-time left-leaning staunch Israel defender Alan Dershowitz called Tutu a “racist and a bigot”. Yes, he certainly is – and now he is openly championing a mass murderer with the blood of multitudes of innocents on his hands.
