UN Rights Council’s Falk Blames Boston Terror on US and Tel Aviv

The US is darned lucky. It deserves worse terror than the Boston bombing. And the root cause is the US backing Israel. Is that Iran talking? No. Just Richard Falk, the UN’s great god of human rights.
U.N. Special Rapporteur and amateur anti-Semite Richard Falk

U.N. Special Rapporteur and amateur anti-Semite Richard Falk.

Richard Falk, U.N. Human Rights Council official and the Obama administration’s unofficial pain in the neck, has written that the Boston Marathon terrorist bombings were a cheap price that the United States paid for trying to dominate the world. He also said the government’s supposed “Israel First” policy is also to blame.

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon did not condemn or even hint criticism of Falk’s remarks, explaining through a spokesman that he is “not responsible” for Falk’s “independent views.”

Bitter criticism was fast and furious from other quarters, especially from Jewish groups, but Falk, who has described himself as a Jewish American, never has been bantered by condemnation.

This time around, after years of spitting on Israel, calling it Apartheid and often comparing it with Nazis, Falk castigated the United States and related to the casualties in Boston with a chilling and methodical reasoning of “proportionality” that is shocking coming from anyone, especially a “human rights” activist.

Writing in the Foreign Policy Journal, Falk stated, “The scale and drama of the Boston attack, while great, was not nearly as large or as symbolically resonant as the destruction of the World Trade Center and the shattering of the Pentagon. Also, although each life is sacred, … the Marathon incident has so far produced three deaths as compared to three thousand, that is, 1/1000th of 9/11.”

Of course, 9/11 may actually have been an inside job in Falk’s mind, or whatever makes him tick.

He wrote in 2004 that  the Bush administration may have been complicit in the Al Qaeda- terrorist attacks.

He implied that the U.S. government was involved, writing, “It is possibly true that especially the neoconservatives thought there was a situation in the country and in the world where something had to happen to wake up the American people. Whether they are innocent about the contention that they made that something happen or not, I don’t think we can answer definitively at this point.”

Falk dumbfounded just about anyone who is not anti-American by explaining that the Marathon bombings were to be expected because “the American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world.”

He then went off the deep end altogether, explicitly stating that the United States is darned lucky the attack was not worse, because that is what America deserves.

“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,: he wrote.

Falk almost never can complain about the state of the world without blaming Israel, and this time was no exception.  ”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,” according to him.

“Now at the start of his second presidential term, it seems that Obama has given up altogether, succumbing to the Beltway ethos of Israel First,” he added.

Not surprisingly, Jewish groups demanded that the Council remove Falk from his position, a request that the U.S. government has previously made to no avail.

His “latest string of inflammatory remarks – whether it be on the Internet or in one of his ‘reports’ to the council – has no place in the United Nations and his continued presence at the UNHRC further undermines the credibility of the system,” said B’nai Brith International.

The American Jewish Committee also denounced Falk.

“Here he goes again,” said AJC Executive Director David Harris. “Given his public record, the question is why Richard Falk still occupies a UN position. Is there no shame?

“Falk’s unhinged diatribes against the U.S. and Israel are well-known….

“His malicious propaganda regarding the U.S. and Israel — and his glaring inability to see the stark truth about extremist violence and terrorism — has no place in any international body that takes itself and its mission seriously.”

Falk has a weird history of seeing terrorists and Muslim radicals through the lenses of “Human Rights.”

  1. Falks has a serious mental disorder. It’s called spiritual delusion.

  2. He understands that terrorists hate the US and Israel. Brilliant. And the solution, just as obvious? Let terrorists have whatever they say? How about us all becoming Muslim or committing suicide? How about this guy and the terrorists blowing it out their asses?

  3. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    No real shock. Many ex-Jews look to prove how they are really no longer Jews by promoting Jew hatred and extermination: Soros; Schocken; Ochs; Sulzberger; Chomsky; Emmanuel; Wasserman Schultz; Friedman; Gal-on. The List goes on. And now Falk.

  4. Agree with the mental disorder, but there is nothing spiritual about it.

  5. He’s a real Falk-up!

  6. Edward Klug says:

    Typical ignorance of hatred against Israel.

  7. Typical antisemitism beginning a plague at the UN.

  8. Harley Bike says:

    Tell the UN to pack up all its **** and get the hell out of America. BTW: Get out of America without America being in this rotten organization.

  9. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    His hatred is against ALL Jews

  10. My only criticism is that Falk should have described the "global.
    domination project" more accurately as the "DGE (Disguised.
    Global Empire) Project".

    Falk deserves great credit for standing up to the arrested.
    thinking that the PR and propaganda term “Terrorism” has been.
    used by the DGE (Disguised Global Empire) to short circuit any.
    rational thought about the “why” of these ‘blowback’.
    actions of powerless people from the violent and vicious boarders.
    and territories in which the DGE murders ‘subjects’ with.
    impunity (as shown by Wikileaks and Manning’s brave “outing”.
    of the EMPIRE in the “Collateral Murder” video).

    Falk is another truth-teller and whistle-blower being hectored.
    and attacked by the disguised Empire that he, like Assange,
    Manning, Oliver Stone, Chris Hedges, Glen Greenwald, and others.
    are EXPOSING as an EMPIRE. And they are all being attacked because.
    the greatest danger to a highly disguised Global Empire is to be "called-out", recognized, and exposed as the Empire that it really is!

    It is this disguised corporate, financial, militarist,
    media, legal, and political Global EMPIRE, only posing as the US,
    U.K., Germany, Israel, NATO, et al., that is the proximate.
    cancerous CAUSE of all these crimes against the Empire’s.
    ‘subjects’ in the exploited oil territories, and increasingly.
    against those who think of themselves as ‘citizens’, but are.
    treated as ‘subjects’ within the metropole of the EMPIRE in.
    their own ‘Homelands” — and those supposed citizens.
    ‘captured’ inside an Empire need to be as concerned as the.
    French under the Vichy government disguising the Nazi Empire.
    because of the great Jewish humanitarian, Hannah Arendt’s, prescient warning:

    “Empire abroad entails tyranny at home”.

    Best to all in confronting and surviving this disguised Global Empire,

  11. You are so right, Arie. All those faithful, blind, brain-washed zombie followers of Edward Said, a defunct Palestinian fanatic, believed everyone of his outrageous false claims. According to Said, the Israelis had no right to defend themselves. In fact every time that they did, Said called those attacks on the Palestinian Arabs. Read Chomsky's books and you will realize that he does not mention any Palestinian attacks on the Israelis, only those retaliations or defensive responses to them. That Falk fellow should be removed from the UN Rights Council for which he is totally unfit.
