So Oliphant’s pyrotechnic imagery should come as no surprise when UN “experts” indulge in such ideological rants. For Falk virtually grants Hamas immunity to openly use Palestinian women and children as human shields and deploy their military arsenal amidst schools, mosques, and hospitals. In the same breath, he defines any Israeli military action in defense of her civilians as “inherently unlawful.”
By Folk’s logic, the Allied Forces that killed some 7,000 French civilians in fighting their way through Normandy’s booby-trapped hedgerow country were guilty of genocide.
Indeed, Falk’s follies would ultimately override Article 51 of the UN Charter guaranteeing member states the right of self-defense against the Al Qaedas of the world.
After Israel is served up on a sacrificial platter, will any country – even the U.S. – be safe? Oliphant might want to do a cartoon.
