Anti-Defamation League calls Tutu `poor choice' for graduation speaker

Citing his long history as a strident critic of Israel and his vocal support for anti-Israel boycotts, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today said that Archbishop Desmond Tutu was a "poor choice" to deliver the commencement addresses at Michigan State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

"Desmond Tutu is a poor choice for commencement speaker," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "His statements about Israel have time and again conveyed outright bigotry against the Jewish homeland and the Jewish people, and his deepening involvement in the anti-Israel boycott effort should have raised a red flag. This is not someone to be held up as a model or awarded an honorary degree, given his history of bombastic rhetoric and unceasing support for the anti-Israel boycott effort.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Speaking of bombastic rhetoric, did anyone at either Michigan State University or the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill actually ASK Foxman for his opinion, or did he just sort of barge right in to the middle of things and start bloviating without waiting for an invitation?
