Annie Lennox has come to the defense of Desmond Tutu after the Archbishop Emeritus was accused of being an anti-Semite for his views on Isreal.

Lennox is encouraging fans to sign an online petition in support of Tutu, who has been called on to resign as patron of several holocaust centers in South Africa after criticizing Israeli policy towards Palestinians.

“The fact that Desmond Tutu is being accused in this way goes way beyond any kind of sane rational,” says Annie Lennox. "The idiots who do so… reveal their own bigoted limitations. We must absolutely take a stand, and show our cohesive support for a man who has consistently exemplified compassion and tolerance under the most challenging circumstances throughout his entire life.

“Bishop Tutu is an arbiter of empathy, understanding and goodwill for the entire world. His values are completely founded in these values and ethics. For such an exemplary/lifelong campaigner for human rights/ peace and justice to be accused as being “anti Semitic” is completely ludicrous and outrageous. Bishop Desmond Tutu is an exemplary man of peace.

“I urge you to express your support, and sign onto this campaign asap.”
