New UN Investigator Is A ‘Troofer’

Posted by Atilla89 on April 11, 2008

That fool Professor Falk who I was talking about in the previous post, has decided that the ‘neocons’ may have played a role 9/11. Yep, he’s that kind of guy; did I mention he was a fan of Ward Churchill? Hat tip to LGF, full article below can be found here.

A new U.N. Human Rights Council official assigned to monitor Israel is calling for an official commission to study the role neoconservatives may have played in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Mr. Falk said, “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. All we can say is there is a lot of grounds for suspicion, there should be an official investigation of the sort the 9/11 commission did not engage in and that the failure to do these things is cheating the American people and in some sense the people of the world of a greater confidence in what really happened than they presently possess.”

I am not going to go into all these conspiracy theories and try and debunk them, you can check out Screw Loose Change for that. But seriously speaking, why in its inifinite wisdom did the UN send an official so obviously biased against Israel, who believes in nut-case conspiracy theories to try and make decision regarding human-rights abuse? Further in the above article former American Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton explains America’s position on this.

When asked for a comment about the appointment of Mr. Falk, a former American ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton said, “This is exactly why we voted against the new human rights council.” A spokesman for the American embassy at the United Nations offered no comment yesterday when asked.

If there was any more doubt about Falk’s unsuitability to this position it can be summarised below.

In a February 16, 1979, op-ed for the New York Times, Mr. Falk praised Ayatollah Khomeini and bemoaned his ill treatment in the American press. He wrote, “The depiction of him as fanatical, reactionary and the bearer of crude prejudices seems certainly and happily false.” Nearly nine months later, student followers of Khomeini invaded the American embassy in Tehran and held 52 diplomats hostage for the following 444 days.

Obviously Israel is not too happy with this and has decided to deny him entry.

Richard Falk is scheduled to take up his post with the UN Human Rights Council in May, but the Foreign Ministry said it will deny Falk a visa to enter Israel, Gaza and the West Bank, at least until a September meeting of the council. At that meeting, Israel intends to ask the council to expand the envoy’s mission to include investigating Palestinian human rights abuses against Israelis.

An obvious and fair question, one any reasonable country would be expected to ask.

According to a Tuesday posting on the British Broadcasting Corporation’s Web site, Falk defended statements he made last summer equating Israel’s treatment of Palestinians with Nazi treatment of Jews during the Holocaust. He told BBC News that Israel has been unfairly shielded from international criticism.

Yeah… because Israel has never been bashed in the UN. Should I even be bothered to mention the countless of times the former Human Rights Council has gone after Israel? Or should I just mention Durban 1 and be done with it.
