Don't worry Kerry - Tutu's got your back!
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry recently ruffled some feathers when he said Israel risked becoming an apartheid state if it did not reach a two-state solution with the Palestinians.
But one highly respected peace maker is one his side: Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town Desmond Tutu, according to the Huffington Post.
Kerry has since apologized for the remarks, but Tutu says he doesn’t find anything wrong with Kerry’s comments.
“I got and I visit the Holy Land and I see things that are a mirror image of the sort of things that I experienced under the apartheid. How can you stop me from the right to describe as I feel. You go anywhere in the world and if I see things that mirror the kind of experience that I know first-hand, I think it’s cheek in a way for someone else to tell you ‘no, you are wrong in feeling as you feel about what you have seen,’” Tutu told Huffington Post.
