Desmond Tutu, a South African cleric and a Nobel peace laureate has criticized the US successive administrations’ historical bias towards the Israeli occupation entity and their collusion with this entity to cover up Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians and its secret nuclear weapons which threaten millions of people.
