Falk should be fired, but we can't be optimistic it'll happen

Elliot Abrams has written about why the UN HRC member Richard Falk should be thrown out of that already corrupt organization:
The special rapporteur on the Palestinian territories of the United Nations Human Rights Council is an extremist named Richard Falk. Falk is an embarrassment to the council and the U.N. whose only activity is to use violent and extreme language to denounce Israel -- most recently for "a criminal intention that is genocidal."

Canada has denounced Falk for these remarks and Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird said this: "Canada completely rejects and condemns the appalling remarks made by Richard Falk, United Nations special rapporteur to the Palestinian territories, in which he accused Israel of 'genocidal' intentions.

"Canada has previously called for Falk to be fired for his numerous outrageous and anti-Semitic statements, and these comments underscore once more the complete and total absurdity of his service as a U.N. special rapporteur.

"I call on the United Nations Human Rights Council -- once again -- to remove Falk from his position immediately.

"Not only do these comments undermine the fundamental values of the United Nations, they also belittle the terrible genocides that have tragically taken place throughout history and around the world."
Baird's comments are commendable, but unlikely to do much good. The UN is still bound to keep Falk - who's also a 9-11 truther - in place, probably for life. The UN has long been otherwise useless, and proved that in the long run.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
