Statement from Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu on 2 April 2014


I am writing today to express grave concern about a wave of legislative measures in the United States aimed at punishing and intimidating those who speak their conscience and challenge the human rights violations endured by the Palestinian people. In legislatures in Maryland, New York, Illinois, Florida, and even the United States Congress, bills have been proposed that would either bar funding to academic associations or seek to malign those who have taken a stand against the Israeli Occupation of Palestine.

These legislative efforts are in response to a growing international initiative, the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, of which I have long been a supporter. The BDS movement emanates from a call for justice put out by the Palestinian people themselves. It is a Palestinian-led, international non-violent movement that seeks to force the Israeli government to comply with international law in respect to its treatment of the Palestinian people.

I have supported this movement because it exerts pressure without violence on the State of Israel to create lasting peace for the citizens of Israel and Palestine, peace which most citizens crave. I have witnessed the systematic violence against and humiliation of Palestinian men, women and children by members of the Israeli security forces. Their humiliation and pain is all too familiar to us South Africans.

In South Africa, we could not have achieved our democracy without the help of people around the world, who through the use of non-violent means, such as boycotts and divestment, encouraged their governments and other corporate actors to reverse decades-long support for the Apartheid regime. My conscience compels me to stand with the Palestinians as they seek to use the same tactics of non-violence to further their efforts to end the oppression associated with the Israeli Occupation.

The legislations being proposed in the United States would have made participation in a movement like the one that ended Apartheid in South Africa extremely difficult.

I am also deeply troubled by the rhetoric associated with the promulgation of these bills which I understand, in the instance of Maryland, included testimony comparing the boycott to the actions of the Nazis in Germany. The Nazi Holocaust which resulted in the extermination of millions of Jews is a crime of monstrous proportions. To imply that it is in any way comparable to a nonviolent initiative diminishes the horrific nature of that genocidal and tragic era in our world history.

Whether used in South Africa, the US South, or India, boycotts have resulted in a transformative change that not only brought freedom and justice to the victims but also peace and reconciliation for the oppressors. I strongly oppose any piece of legislation meant to punish or deter individuals from pursuing this transformative aspiration. And I remain forever hopeful that, like the nonviolent efforts that have preceded it, the BDS movement will ultimately become a catalyst for honest peace and reconciliation for all our brothers and sisters, both Palestinian and Israeli, in the Holy Land.

This statement was issued for Archbishop emeritus Tutu by Oryx Media.


If the United States Corporations such as Ford Motor Company, IBM and GM had boycotted Nazi Germany, and Fascist Spain in the 1930's we might have been spared the holocaust and WWII. However corporate America viewed Fascism as an appropriate response to Communism in any of its national expressions in the 1930's. Corporate America resisted the boycotts on South Africa. They along with AIPAC resist any attempts by US citizens or its intellectual institutions to boycott Israel.

How to buy [url=]motorcycle fairings[/url] is cheapest?

I believe that every motorcycle sports enthusiasts have a beloved motorycle bike, it is pretty cool shell publicize their personality, to attract the attention of countless people. The following share with how to replace my [url=]Honda fairings[/url] and under what circumstances save the most money, but also get the fastest delivery.

We all know that racing season are generally concentrated in January to Apir, this time presumably every bike owners consider replacing the fairing, No matter yours’ [url=]suzuki fairings[/url] or [url=]Yamaha fairings[/url]. So that we are almost at the same time to order from factory, because motorcycle fairings made in advance, a sudden surge in factory orders, painting job speed accordingly become very slow. Meanwhile motorcycle fairing is large parcel,for example [url=]kawasaki fairing[/url], [url=]Ducati fairing[/url], etc, the volume is very large. Freight company is very annoying such goods, they only like heavy and small items. In the case of such a fixed route, they generally first select transporting heavy small items.

Therefore, we should avoid the peak period, select the off-season replacement. For example [url=]Triumph fairing[/url]. So we do not worry, you can choose a little slower, cheaper shipping methods, very economical, but also can quickly receive the goods!

Thank you for your time!
