(1990) Bishop Tutu: NAZI slaughter of Jews was better than Apartheid

WARNING: This is Version 1 of my old archive, so Photos will NOT work and many links will NOT work. But you can find articles by searching on the Titles. There is a lot of information in this archive. Use the SEARCH BAR at the top right. Prior to December 2012; I was a pro-Christian type of Conservative. I was unaware of the mass of Jewish lies in history, especially the lies regarding WW2 and Hitler. So in here you will find pro-Jewish and pro-Israel material. I was definitely WRONG about the Boeremag and Janusz Walus. They were for real.

(1990) Bishop Tutu: NAZI slaughter of Jews was better than Apartheid

[Here is something interesting, which I did not know about. Bishop Tutu has a history of anti-Semitism.

Bishop Tutu”s anti-Semitism was first brought to my attention by one of the web owners of

I would like to point to something I find especially hideous, and this relates back to an article I wrote: “Did Apartheid kill millions?” – which is in the Archive on my website. Take note how Tutu publicly said that the mass slaughter of Jews by the NAZIS was “neater” than what the Blacks experienced under Apartheid.

Such a statement is so historically invalid – that my mind boggles at how he could DARE to say such a thing!

I, personally, find such statements extremely insulting – of the highest order. In my book, Government by Deception, I wrote that being accused of GENOCIDE, is, in my opinion the worst thing any group of people can be accused of – IF IT IS UNTRUE. There is absolutely no evidence that Whites/Afrikaners in S.Africa ever tried to wipe out all the Blacks. If Whites really did want to annhilate Blacks, they had the opportunity and means to do it, and if they did, then the bulldozers would have been hard at work burying the hundreds of thousands of dead. *NEVER* has any mass grave ever been discovered in all of Africa – where one can see evidence of attempted Black genocide by Whites. But, such graveyards exist where Blacks killed other Blacks, or where Blacks slaughtered Muslims. These are well-documented historically. But you will not find one ounce of evidence of the mass slaughter of Blacks by Whites – anywhere in Africa – because it did not happen.

Anyhow, these statements by Tutu, 15 years ago, are complete lies, and should be rejected with the utmost contempt. That he even uttered these words is disgusting beyond belief. The original article was published in the Seattle Times.

Tutu”s statements against both Whites in Africa, as well as Jews in general disgust me. Jan]

Praying for Nazis, Scolding Their Victims
Archbishop Tutu”s Christmas Message
Originally published in Seattle Times, 18 January 1990.

On the day after Christmas, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Anglican Primate of South Africa and holder of the Nobel Peace Prize, standing before the memorial at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem to the millions of Jews murdered by Hitler, prayed for the murderers and sermonized the descendants of their victims. “We pray for those who made it happen, help us to forgive them and help us so that we in our turn will not make others suffer” (New York Times, 27 December 1989). This, he said, was his “message” to the Israeli children and grandchildren of the dead.

Moral obtuseness, mean spite, and monstrous arrogance do not make for sound ethics and theology. Neither Tutu nor the Israelis he lectured can “forgive” the Nazi murderers. Representatives of an injured group are not licensed (even by the most unctuous of preachers) to forgive on behalf of the whole group. In fact, forgiveness issues from God alone. The forgiveness Tutu offers the Nazis is truly pitiless because it forgets the victims, blurs over suffering, and drowns the past.

No one familiar with Tutu”s long record of hostility to Jews, Judaism, and Israel will be surprised that he is far less moved by the actuality of what the Nazis did (“the gas chambers,” he once said, “made for a neater death” than apartheid resettlement policies) than by the hypothetical potentiality of what, in his jaundiced view, Israelis “might” do. His speeches against apartheid return obsessively to gross, licentious equations between the South African system and Jewish practices, biblical and modern. “The Jews,” Tutu declared in 1984, “thought they had a monopoly on God” and “Jesus was angry that they could shut out other human beings” (Hartford Courant, 29 October 1984). Tutu has been an avid supporter of the Goebbels-like equation of Zionism with racism. He has alleged that “Jews . . . think they have cornered the market on suffering” (Shimoni, 51) and that Jews are “quick to yell “antisemitism”” because of “an arrogance of power–because Jews have such a strong lobby in the United States” (New York City Tribune, 27 November 1984). He has repeatedly declared that (as he told a Jewish Theological Seminary audience in 1984) “whether Jews like it or not, they are a peculiar people. They can”t ever hope to be judged by the same standards which are used for other people” (Religious News Service, 28 November 1984). Certainly Tutu has never judged Jews by the standards he uses for other people. Although South African and American Jews are more, not less, critical of apartheid than the majority of their countrymen, Tutu in 1987 threatened that “in the future, South African Jews will be punished if Israel continues dealing with South Africa” ( Courrier Austral Parlamentair , February 1987), and in 1989 warned that black-Jewish relations in America would “continue to suffer until Israel repudiates its involvement with South Africa.”

Israel”s trade with South Africa is about 7 percent of America”s, less than a tenth of Japan”s, Germany”s, or England”s. But so far Tutu has not threatened South African or American citizens of Japanese, German, or English extraction with punishment. Citizens of Arab nations supply 99 percent of the one resource without which South Africa could not survive: oil. Tutu has made countless inflammatory remarks about Israel”s weapons sales to South Africa (consisting mainly of naval patrol boats to protect international shipping lanes) but has said almost nothing about South Africa”s main Western arms supplier, France, which has also built two of South Africa”s three nuclear reactors–the third being American. He has been just as silent about Jordan”s sales of tanks and missiles to South Africa.

Tutu”s insistence on applying a double standard to Jews may explain an otherwise mysterious feature of his anti-Israel rhetoric. He once asked Israel”s ambassador to South Africa, Eliahu Lankin, “how it was possible that the Jews, who had suffered so much persecution, could oppress other people” (Jerusalem Post, 11 November 1989). On another occasion, in 1984, he expressed dismay “that Israel, with the kind of history . . . her people have experienced, should make refugees [actually she didn”t] of others” (Religious News Service, 28 November 1984). In other words, Jews, according to Tutu, have a duty to behave particularly well because Jews have suffered so much persecution. The mad corollary of this proposition is that the descendants of those who have “not” been persecuted do not have a special duty to behave well, and the descendants of the persecutors can be excused altogether for behavior it would be hard to excuse in other people.

This perverted logic may explain not only Tutu”s decision to pray for the Nazis while berating the descendants of their victims, but also his espousal of the PLO, whose leader, Yasser Arafat, is both the biological relative and spiritual descendant of Haj Amin el-Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem who actively collaborated with Hitler in the destruction of European Jewry in World War II.

Rabbinical tradition, however, provides a simpler explanation of Tutu”s eagerness to “forgive” the Nazis while excoriating the descendants of their victims: “Whoever is merciful to the cruel,” the rabbis warn, “will end by being indifferent to the innocent.”
