UN Hits Bottom, Digs

• Views: 1,068

The new United Nations “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967,” Richard Falk, is really a winner.

He’s a 9/11 Troofer.

And he stands by his ridiculously offensive and extreme anti-Israel statements: UN expert stands by Nazi comments.

The next UN investigator into Israeli conduct in the occupied territories has stood by comments comparing Israeli actions in Gaza to those of the Nazis.

Speaking to the BBC, Professor Richard Falk said he believed that up to now Israel had been successful in avoiding the criticism that it was due.

Professor Falk is scheduled to take up his post for the UN Human Rights Council later in the year.

He’s also a big fan of Ward Churchill.

Oh brother.

UPDATE at 4/9/08 8:53:28 am:

A totally appropriate response: Israel to deny UN official entry for comparing Israel to Nazis.

The Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that it will not allow the United Nations official appointed to investigate Israeli-Palestinian human rights to enter the country, after he stood by comments comparing Israelis to Nazis.

Richard Falk is scheduled to take up his post with the UN Human Rights Council in May, but the Foreign Ministry said it will deny Falk a visa to enter Israel, Gaza and the West Bank, at least until a September meeting of the council.

There is no such thing as a dirty word. Nor is there a word so powerful, that it's going to send the listener to a lake of fire upon hearing it.
