"One person who has spoken candidly about the real reason for the United States support for Israel is bishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa who was awarded the 1984 Nobel peace prize. Addressing an audience in Boston he said. "But you know as well as I do that somehow the Israeli government is placed on a pedestal in the United States and to criticise it is to be immediately dubbed anti-Semitic. People are scared in this country to say wrong is wrong, because the Jewish lobby is powerful, very powerful." Bishop Desmond Tutu spoke the truth." Said historian, publisher, activist and organiser Mark Weber.
