Richard Falk Calls for ‘Legitimacy War’ against Israel

Falk Complains: "The Ultra-Zionist UN Watch Complicated My Task"

Richard Falk, the UN Human Rights Council's permanent investigator on "Israel's violations of international law."

In a new interview, Richard Falk, the UN Human Rights Council’s permanent investigator on “Israel’s violations of international law,” explained the strategy of his “legitimacy war” against Israel—but complained that UN Watch “complicated my task.”

According to Falk, “extremely defamatory attacks by UN Watch”—which he described as “an ultra-Zionist, ultra-Israeli organization”—succeeded in getting him “attacked” by the American ambassadors in New York and Geneva, “and by the UN Secretary-General, actually, on a couple of occasions.”

Falk is upset that UN Watch exposed and got him condemned for supporting 9/11 conspiracy theories that deny terrorist responsibility, publishing an anti-Semitic cartoon, endorsing a pro-Hitler book, and blaming the Boston Marathon bombings on the U.S. and “Tel Aviv.”

“What is more disturbing than the (UN Watch) attacks themselves,” said Falk in an October interview, “is their resonance among those holding responsible positions in government and international institutions, as well as widely respected liberal organizations.”

“In my case, the UN Secretary General, the U.S. ambassadors at the UN in New York and Geneva, the British Prime Minister, and the Canadian Foreign Minister. Not one of these individuals bothered to check with me as to my response to the defamatory allegations or apparently took the trouble to check on whether there was a credible basis for such damaging personal attacks.”

“Even the liberal mainstream human rights powerhouse, Human Rights Watch, buckled under when pressured by UN Watch, invoking a long neglected technical rule to obtain my immediate removal from a committee, and then lacked the decency to explain that my removal was not ‘a dismissal’ when UN Watch claimed ‘victory,’ and proceeded to tell the UN and other bodies that if Human Rights Watch had expelled me, surely I should be expelled elsewhere.”

“I learned, somewhat bitterly, that HRW has feet of clay when it came to standing on principle in relation to someone like myself who has been the victim of repeated calumnies because of an effort to report honestly and accurately on Israeli violations of Palestinian rights.”

  6. very sick and twisted old man. likely, he has dementia. Falk shouldn't get so worked up, he could have a stroke. Yay!

  7. The whole world has turned on Israel and simply REFUSE to take full account of factual evidence. One only has to go through history of the world and look at how they compare to the Biblical facts. Several people say that Israel never REALLY existed in ancient times in Jerusalem and never had their temple there. Okay, so what do the facts bear out? OBJECTIVELY and HONESTLY look at the arch that depicts Rome's victory in 70 AD over Israel and see the implements of the old Jewish temple being taken by Rome(see the link below). Then with that factual information, realize that Israel factually existed in Jerusalem in 70 AD and that God’s Temple was real.(shown below in the link). They are not occupying Islamic land. They have been returned as a nation to their home land just as God in the Bible said he would in the latter days. Do we really think that ANCIENT ROME built the arch in Rome just to fool Muslim people in the future? Islam did not exist in 70 AD at the time of this battle. Rome built that arch as bragging rights and to remember their victory. They then renamed the area from Israel to Palestine, in a failed effort to end the memory of Israel. It of course did not work and Israel has now been restored by God as he promised. Here is a link to see the actual arch in ROME that was made in 70 AD after the sacking of Jerusalem by Titus of Rome. Notice the Menora from the temple in Jerusalem. This is factual evidence left from Rome, the ENEMY
    of Israel, that still stands in Rome today and can be seen by anyone. This is older than the muslim religion. http://www.scholarscorner.com/museums/titus.htm
    I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next
