Arch no better than Hitler or Stalin says Reich




“All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players.  They have exits and their entrances and one man in his time plays many parts.” -‘As you like it’ by William Shakespeare”

Many men have flitted across the canvas of world history in a time frame comparable to the wink of an eye-lid when measured against the entire history of man. Constantly self-appointed destructors of the Jewish people appear in every generation. Haman, Ferdinand and Isabella, Pope Pius Xll, Hitler, Stalin, Ahmadinejad and Petlura to name but a few. They are all deposited in the dustbin of history, (with apologies to Leon Trotsky)

Tutu HOMEThe latest self-appointed midget of history is Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who led a public demonstration recently in Cape Town to make his contribution with his allies Hamas toward the destruction of the Jewish state and nearly 7 million Jews in Israel.

This man while wearing his Rabbinical Kapoteh (Cassock) and yarmulke (skull cap) prays to his Jewish G-d and tells the world that the Old Testament is old and therefore out of date and has been replaced by the New Testament.

However, he believes in a Messiah based upon Isiah in the Old Testament which is according to him outdated. The same applies to the Ten Commandments.

In order to proceed with the murder of Jews, anti-Semites need a brand with which to incite the populace. It matters not whether the accusations are true or not. What is important for them is that regardless of the truth, is whether such accusations could incite the hatred against Jews. 


Examples: Menachem-Mendel Beilis, Dreyfus 

A good example is the blood libel against Menachem-Mendel Beilis on 21 July 1911 in Kiev. The witnesses knew that they were lying, but they persisted with their charges until the truth emerged and Beilis was exonerated. Another example is the Dreyfus trial where the witnesses knew they were lying and Dreyfus was eventually exonerated.

The Nazi murderer Goebbels is another example of how a lie can be used to murder Jews.

Archbishop Tutu knows that the launching of rockets on the civilian population of Israel is a crime against humanity. This compelled Israel to take steps to defend itself. He omits this in his accusations, because, just as his abovementioned predecessors, he knew that by subverting the truth, credibility can be gained.

Archbishop Tutu knows that Hamas, Al Qaeda, Islamic Jihad, Boko Haram and ISIS have a commonality in that they persecute Jews, Yazidis and Christians alike, such as the ancient Christian community in Iraq.

He knows that the most persecuted religion in the world is Christianity where even babies are being beheaded.

On the other hand, Israel is the only country in the Middle East which has a Christian community providing refuge for Christians and is experiencing exponential growth. He knows that Christians in Israel are completely free and that their holy places properly maintained and respected. He knows that millions of Christians visit Israel annually in order to reaffirm their faith.

What does Archbishop Tutu do? He is a leader in the Boycott movement which has a commonality with Hamas. Hamas’ known intention it is to destroy the Jewish state. If the BDS movement were to succeed then Churches will be turned into Mosques as has occurred in Europe, Britain and the Middle East.

He would kill Jews before protecting Christians

Just as it was more important for Hitler to kill Jews than to protect the fatherland in the last days of the war so it is more important for Tutu to kill Jews rather to protect his fellow Christians. 

Why your silence Bishop Tutu  regarding the human rights violations in Saudi Arabia, Ukraine, China, Iraq. The murder of 200,000 innocent people in Syria the recent beheadings of two journalists to mention but a few?

The true apartheid is on your doorstep, where people are living in corrugated iron shacks without running water, electricity and sanitation. Nowhere in Israel or the disputed territories are people living like that. The standard of living of the “poor” Palestinians is higher than many countries around the globe, why do you only finger Israel?

If you were a principled boycotter and not a hypocrite, then your shopping list should also exclude the following:

  1. The use of your computer and voice mail technology.
  2. The use security systems which combat bank robberies, airport security and global terror.
  3. All generic brands for heartburn produced by Israeli laboratories.
  4. Products from Teva and Abi the world leaders in prescription drugs.
  5. A simple blood test for multiple sclerosis which was developed by an Israeli company.
  6. An Israeli made device restores the use of paralysed hands providing help for stroke sufferers and victims of spinal injuries. 
  7. Children with breathing problems use Child Hood to assist their breathing, please tell mothers that their children should rather choke than use Israeli products. 

Emerging farmers, hitherto neglected, are now thriving and enjoying the benefit and dignity of earning a decent living thanks to the contribution of Israelis and their technology, such as drip irrigation, which you want to boycott.

In the light of the above, your silence is testimony to your anti-Semitism. The graduation of BDS and all other purveyors of hate from the centre stage to the dustbin of history is imminent. Israel looks forward with confidence to a brilliant and successful future making a major contribution towards a better life for all mankind.

    ‘Mr Reich is correct as Tutu would like to see every Jewish Israeli man, woman and child butchered’

    ‘It is the 11 Trustees of the SA Holocaust who insist on retaining Tutu as a Patron. I also believe that all 11 (or at least the majority) are in fact Jewish. It is also interesting to note that two of the other Patrons are Chief Rabbi  Goldstein and Judge Goldstone, the latter doing unbelieveable damage to the Jewish State of Israel. It is also important to note that when a petition was started a number of years ago not to renew Tutu as a Patron it was soundly defeated, and if I am not mistaken a number of Johannesburg Rabbi’s supported Tutu to be retained as a patron. Is it not time for Tutu to be dumped as a Patron and for S Africa’s Rabbi’s and lay leaders to take this lead’

    ‘Mr. Reich is correct in most of his analysis and criticism of Bishop Tutu. However, isn’t it true that during the long exile that the Jewish people have gone through in the past 2000 years these Jew haters have to a large extent succeeded in their mission to kill and persecute millions of Jews. For this reason alone, should not Mr. Reich issue a \”warning\” to S.African Jews that there is a distinct possibility that the Tutu’s (and I’m sure that there are thousands like him, both Christian and Muslim) of S.Africa are a definite threat to the well-being of the Jewish population.

    Tragedies have affected every Jewish population in the Diaspora for the past 2000 years. Why should S.African Jewry be spared?

    As Mr Reich rightly points out; the Tutus will eventually be deposited into the dustbin of history, but not before they have done their dirty work, as history has shown.

    I would rather that our Jewish leaders pray for the \”speedy ingathering of our people from the four corners of the earth to Eretz Yisrael\”.

    Don’t wait for the I.D.F. to send aeroplanes to fetch you. Israel will not do that.

    Mr. Reich is right. Tutu is no better than Hitler.

    Don’t let us Jews ever give him a chance to prove it.

    I clearly remember the days when our Religious leaders, both Orthodox and Reform, marched hand in hand with Bishop Tutu protesting the \”apartheid\” government.

    ‘This is holocaust revisionism at its worst. What a fatuous piece of writing. Once again, to be Jewish is somehow equated with being pro-Israel and every critic must, of course, be Hitler, a Nazi, etc. What utter nonsense and what a disgrace to the Jewish tradition of critical intellectual engagement. Shame on you!’

    ‘It is a shame and a disgrace to see this newspaper print such vitriolic hatred. Reich’s hate-speech has the unmistakable rattle of fascism – and the fact that this newspaper has given it oxygen is a case it should answer for. Frankly there are no people or issues worth debating on this page. I will simply use it to register my disgust (indeed my embarrassment) and leave.

    And to those who have commented above – you know what: I DON’T remember the days when Jewish community leaders marched hand-in-hand with Tutu during Apartheid. I don’t remember them preaching a peep against apartheid nor bearing shred of risk when it mattered most. ‘

    ‘Really? Really?!

    Comparing one of the world’s greatest moral authorities (and Nobel Peace Laureate – respected by almost everyone) to one of the world’s most evil mass-murderers? A man who consistently stands up for the oppressed and the marginalized. 

    You may disagree with what he says, but then play the ball and not the man. This is nothing more than a sickening ad hominem attack. That it was published at all is a blight upon this already slimy publication.

    Shame on you.’

    ‘I am no Jew, but I am no idiot either… unlike our pathetic South African government. You cannot expect the ANC to support a nation that builds civilization, because they are not capable of doing it… and are abviously not happy to see somebody else succeeding. Nevertheless, the world is at a pretty interesting point right now. Firstly, Western civilization supported the African National Cancer to topple apartheid… which off course is a very noble thing to put on your CV. From there the South Africa went from being the first country in the world to do a heart transplant in a PUBLIC hospital (dr Chris Barnard) to a country where you have to take your own linen when you go to a public hospital. It gets even better. In the mean time the success story of the West encouraged them to open up their borders to the all people of 3rd world origins. And that, off course, is also noble, especially where minority groups are being opressed by Islam etc. But now it seems like all these noble things are starting to bite. Being politically correct is all of a sudden not so noble in Europe anymore. 

    It gets even better…. before the noble act of the West to topple apartheid, South Africa was a very loyal friend to Israel and the West, while we were at war with Soviet Russia. Today, South Africa hates Israel beyond believe, we are best mates with a terrorist Russia, and we feel f’all for the West, while our government turns a blind eye to blacks torturing white farmers and their woman and children to death. As Europe and the West grows poorer in the midst of a financial crisis that just doesnt want to go away, are they going to have some second thoughts at some stage about all these noble things?’

    ‘Yes Choni you are correct, however S Africas Jewish leadership (religious and lay) and may I add community  have No problem/issue with Tutu being a Patron of the SA Holocaust Foundation. Is this not an absolute DISGRACE ?????????? If S African Jewry support Tutu as a patron something is wrong, and if they don’t support him then get rid of him. If getting rid of him is not possible then surely all Jewish Trustees and the Chief Rabbi as patron have an obligation to resign their appointments’

    ‘I have not read some much whining and whinging ever.  My word!! This victim mentality is beyond pathetic! Grow up the lot of you – you are NOT under siege, with imminent destruction upon you – for the most part, you are all in the most successful and prosperous segment of SA society!  The glass is 99% full – FFS, not 1% empty.’
