Ban Ki-Moon Caves In, ‘Rejects’ Falk’s Boston Terror-Israel Link

It took five days, but United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon finally said he “rejects” United Nations Human Rights Council official Richard Falk’s comments that cited “the American global domination project: and US-Israeli relations as provocations for the bombings.

Falk, a Jewish American who has long history of accusing Israel of “war crimes” and “apartheid, wrote 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.”

Israeli officials as well as the UN Watch organization protested his remarks, but Ban’s spokesman simply stated that Falk “speaks independently” and does not necessarily represent the United Nations.

Further condemnations of Falk appeared in the media, including The Wall Street Journal, and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations tweeted, “Someone who spews such vitriol has no place at the UN.”

Ban‘s spokesman finally announced five days Falk’s article, “The Secretary-General rejects Mr. Falk’s comments [which] undermine the credibility and the work of the United Nations.”

    Very impressive academic resume, but such ugly, twisted thinking. Curious how it all came to be.

  2. Gil Gilman says:

    We now know who caused the terrorist bombing in Boston. According to the mother of all newspapers, The New York Times, it was the Golden Glove Association for changing its rule allowing permanent residents to compete, to only citizens naturalized or U. S. born. As a result the older brother was not allowed to compete this year. NYT was truly desperate for someone other than terrorists to pin this on, and they came up with a doozy.

    Long overdue, but better late than never.
