    Doesn't that put paid to the "apartheid state" slander?
    Now what did Tutu think of it, I wonder.

    I love the "He was unaware of the implications of what he did." As if it's completely obvious that flying the Israeli flag is something you should never, ever do. The mind boggles.

    To the many refugees who have lost life, limb, and dignity at the hands of Israel, the Israeli flag is indeed offensive. As a matter of fact, anyone who finds manipulation, occupation, and illegal appropriation distateful, should also find the Israeli flag annoying.

    If we believed Johny Patry and his line, then it would certainly be a lot more inappropriate to be holding the World Cup in Germany....(how many million murdered and maimed was that?), or to see the flags flying of England (colonial track record, anyone?), the US (native American lands etc), Iran (hanging of gays, sponsorship of suicide bombers, how's that for "manipulation")....I could go on, but you can find something to offend large groups of people for just about every flag you could name currently flying in the World Cup.

    Indeed.
