Tutu also has spoken out periodically about the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. For instance, a speech by Tutu
in Boston almost 10 years ago in which the archbishop angrily denounced Israeli policies toward Palestinian Arabs and American
support for those policies, especially angered the 27 psychiatrists who placed the ad in Psychiatric Times; that speech, which took place during the second intifada (or uprising, in which some 1,400 Israelis and 3,400 Palestinians
were killed) drew analogies to the policies of Hitler, Mussolini, and Milosevic.
