Anti-Semites receive Presidential Medal of Freedom

Obama just awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Mary Robinson and Desmond Tutu.

Mary Robinson presided over the Durban I conference (famous for drafting and passing a "Zionism = Racism" statute and so blatantly anti-semitic that the US delegation left), presided over the EU's provision of $9 million per month to the PLO at the peak of their terror activities and has issued statements condoning Palestinian suicide bombings of civilians as a means of promoting Palestinian statehood.

Tutu (direct quotes):
"Zionism has very many parallels with racism"
He accused Jews of exhibiting “an arrogance--the arrogance of power because Jews are a powerful lobby in this land and all kinds of people woo their support"

He has also openly refused to refer to Israel by name, instead calling it "Palestine", and has compared it to Stalin, Hitler and apartheid.

Anyone care to try and justify this, especially the Robinson selection? This is the single highest honor the President can give, and I'm pretty sure it shouldn't be handed to controversial figures.
