  1. Eran Spiro says:

    Please be kind to Richard Falk prior to removing him from his current position on the Human Rights Commission. Investigate every familial connection and financial connections and you will discover why this despicable person is so anti-Israeli.

  2. Charlie Hall says:

    Kudos to the Obama adminstration for calling out this rasha.

  3. At least the JP admits to allowing a thuggish propaganda network to write its "news" — so there's one accurate statement above. Anyone who wants to see the actual comments of Dr. Falk — one of the most intellectually and morally distinguished human rights observers in the world, in my view — will find them here: http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2013/04/21/a-commentary-on-the-marathon-murders/.

    As any reader can see, the statements attributed to Falk's commentary by the so-called UN Watch is sheer fabrication.

    The JP can apologize for reprinting these slanders, or it can confess to being a warmongering propaganda mill rather than a news outlet.

  4. Correction: should be "are sheer fabrications."

  5. Mario S Nusbaum says:

    Sheer fabrication Michael ????????????????? What's YOUR interpretation of:

    " Can we not expect one among our politicians, other than the Tea Party darling Rand Paul, to have the courage to connect some of these dots"
    The dots are American actions in Afghanistan and Pakistan and the Boston bombing

    "The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world. In some respects, the United States has been fortunate not to experience worse blowbacks, and these may yet happen, especially if there is no disposition to rethink US relations to others in the world, starting with the Middle East."
    Isn't this saying that the bombing were due to the "American global domination project" whatever this is?

    Isn't it obvious that this one of the most intellectually and morally distinguished human rights observers in the world is a ferocious anit-semite? No? OK, so explain us what he meant by:

    " The war drums are beating at this moment in relation to both North Korea and Iran, and 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."

    " including the adoption of a far more balanced approach to the Palestine/Israel impasse"

    "especially given the strong pushback by Israel and its belligerent leader, Bibi Netanyahu, were a series of disappointing reactions by Obama"

    " it seems that Obama has given up altogether, succumbing to the Beltway ethos of Israel First."

  6. It is not surprising, because this is the way it works, that there is no mention that UN Watch is the spawn of the American Jewish Committee, the unofficial "state department" of the pro-Israel establishment, which not only echos the policies of the Netanyahu government but has spent most of its time since the Iraq war in lobbying governments around the world to support a military attack on Iran if Israel "feels" that is necessary. UN Watch simply functions as a guardian of Israeli interests in the UN which, as its name implies, is unique. It needs to be sent packing.

  7. Myriam Obadia says:

    I don't know where you got the idea that the American Jewish Committee is "the unofficial 'state department' of the pro-Israel establishment", but if it were the case, it would only be a form of redress for the ingrained anti-Israel prejudice of the actual US State Department. For decades now, the US Congress has voted periodically -with a bipartisan overwhelming majority- for the US Embassy in Israel to be moved to Jerusalem and, for decades, every single US president has caved into the demand of the State Department not to comply with the will of the People of the US expressed through their Congress.

  8. Myriam Obadia says:

    Dear Michael, if Dr. Falk is indeed the incorruptible intellectual and human rights advocate you deem him to be, how comes he has never been heard condemning the bombing of Israeli civilians with the same enthusiasm as he does the checkpoints in the disputed territories? As a matter of facts, how comes he doesn't object to the actual Apartheid suffered by Palestinians in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt or the tortures, imprisonment, and discrimination suffered by Christian Palestinians at the hand of the Hamas? Is Palestinian suffering not worthy of notice when Jews cannot be blamed for it? Why not a word on the several hundred thousands Syrian victims of the Hassad regime and the Al Qaeda infiltrated opposition? What about the Caucasian Muslims suffering under the Russian Imperialism or the Uighur people under the Chinese domination? Are Muslim deaths only a crime when they happen at the hand of the "West"? Ask yourself those questions honestly, then review your opinions once you have shed your prejudices and Zionist conspiration fixation.

  9. First, Myriam, the AJC considers itself to be the Lobby's state department as others close to it have described it. Most of its time is spent on delegations to foreign countries lobbying for Israel and it even has its Trans-Atlantic institute in Brussels where it can influence the EU which is based there. As for Congress, it is Israel's most important occupied territory and two years ago, when it gave Netanyahu 29 standing ovations three days after he had dressed down the president of the US as if he was as an errant schoolboy, federal marshals should have arrested the lot of them and held the largest treason trial in American history. Most Americans don't give a damn for either side in the Israel-Palestine conflict and thanks to the media, which is also dominated and/or intimidated by the Jewish establishment, there are no reports of, for example, the Senate voting 99-0 on a resolution, May 22, that would have the US supporting Israel militarily if it decided to attack Iran, another act of collective treason, putting the sovereignty of the US and the lives of its people in the hands of a foreign country.
