UN conspiracy theorist Richard Falk desecrates victims of Boston jihad
U.N. Human Rights Council Palestine monitor Richard Falk is arguing that the Boston Marathon bombing was carried out in "retribution" for U.S. military actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, "American global dominion," and supposed Israeli influence of American foreign policy.And yet the UN continues to harbor that disgusting man, even if they removed him from their human rights watch council. Some US politicians like Doug Lamborn, Eliot Engel and Trent Franks have already condemned his sick behavior, and said:
Concerning America, Falk wrote: "The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world... In some respects, the U.S. has been fortunate not to receive worse blowbacks, and these may yet happen."
He also fell back on the tired conspiracy of Israeli influence directing U.S. foreign policy, writing, "As long as Tel Aviv has the compliant ear of the American political establishment, those who wish for peace and justice in the world should not rest easy."
These malicious and mendacious claims not only justify these heinous terrorist acts on innocent civilians, but belie the most basic human right--the right to live. They make a mockery of the founding principles of the United Nations and are a deep affront to the American people.The the problem is that the UN has long been taken over by repulsive creatures of his sort, and render the UN a most unwelcome place to be.
And unfortunately, the Obama administration has not only failed to campaign for Falk's complete removal from the UN payroll, they're unlikely to do so for the rest of the second term either. Anne Bayefsky notes that even after Falk's removal from at least one council:
Richard Falk continued in his role as a UN "expert." He produced a report for the UN Human Rights Council in May 2012 and presented it in June 2012. He wrote another report for the General Assembly in September 2012 and presented it in October 2012. And the Obama administration paid 22% of all his costs.Tax dollars at work. A campaign is needed to stop the funding the US provides for this corrupt outfit, and to shun their employees working in the US too. If there's a UN office in Boston, there should be a campaign to get it closed down. They will not voluntarily dismiss Falk and others of his sick ilk, so it's up to the public to get the UN out of the US.
Update: Ruthie Blum has an op-ed about this.
