"Ernie" has some thoughts about our CIA director.
By Anne Bayefsky
Appointed in 2008 as the UN “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967,” Falk spends his time as a professor emeritus from Princeton University, responding to speaking invitations, collecting awards from around the country, spouting antisemitism, and supporting 9/11 conspiracy theories.
In his latest tirade in an online journal, Falk says the Boston attacks make sense when one properly understands that “the American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world.” Consequently, he argues, we should all be “meditating” on poet W.H. Auden’s apt line “Those to whom evil is done/do evil in return.”
According to Falk, what happened in Boston was a mere “blowback.” Not only that, it will get “worse” if America does not fundamentally alter its “relations with the Islamic world.”
Falk has been peddling his grotesque opinions from the UN platform for years. Because the truth is that antisemitism and anti-Americanism is his Human Rights Council job description. The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) controls the balance of power on the Council by holding a majority of seats in the African and Asian regional groups, which in turn comprise the majority of Council members.
Now Falk has pulled Boston into his twisted terrain, where fighting back is itself indefensible. He called the police action in Boston a "hysterical dragnet." Similarly, Falk has analogized Israeli responses to Palestinian terrorism to the “Nazi record of collective atrocity.” His website has sported a cartoon of a dog wearing clothing marked with “USA” and a star of David, devouring blood spattered bones and urinating on a statue of lady justice.
Richard Falk, however, did not materialize out of thin air. Less than two weeks ago, a top UN committee charged with drafting the first comprehensive convention against terrorism, ended in disarray because Islamic states insisted that there is a distinction between terrorism and “legitimate struggle” against “colonial or alien domination.” Morsi’s Egypt led the way in pressing for a world conference on “root causes” of terrorism and “the conditions conducive to terrorism.” OIC countries insisted that these conditions include “political and economic injustice, marginalization, poverty, hunger and alienation.”
In short, the real victim becomes the terrorist, not Krystle Campbell, Lu Lingzi, Martin Richard, and Officer Sean Collier.
Unfortunately, the Obama administration has become a lead champion of the UN Human Rights Council. While President Bush refused to join a human rights body that had no human rights credentials for membership, joining and supporting the Council has been a signature foreign policy move of President Obama.
The State Department has approached the experience of belonging to the Council as a game of whack-a-mole. When the unimpeded election of Colonel Gadhafi’s Libya to the Council finally became too embarrassing, they had Libya temporarily “suspended.” When the permanent bash-Israel agenda item of the Council comes up three times a year they sit mute, and send assistant secretaries of state to Jewish events across the country assuring the community they feel their pain. When Iran wanted a Council seat, they traded the country for a seat on the UN’s top women’s rights body, the Commission on the Status of Women.
The question is what are they going to whack now? Richard Falk is emboldened by a UN “human rights” Council that is emboldened by the participation and support of the world’s leading democracy. It is time to put an end to America’s support for the Council now.

"Peter" has some thoughts about the Boston bombers.
Why are American taxpayers subsidizing the immigration of Muslims from such hell-holes as Chechnya, Syria, Somalia, etc?
It is undisputed that Islamist doctrines are incompatible with American principles and culture. To Muslims we are satanic infidels who must be annihilated; evil-doers who must be converted to Islam or murdered. Muslims cannot become Americans and still retain their Muslim doctrines and Shariah laws. To become an infidel is a capital crime for a Muslim.
Muslims do not want to become Americans, they just want to live here and enjoy our wealth.
So why is our government paying them to immigrate to the U.S. and housing them in our neighborhoods at our expense? Why is our own government's apparent policy to place Americans at risk and make us pay for it?
Why isn't this glaring hypocrisy and incongruity being addressed by the "Gang of Eight" immigration policymakers?
Why isn't this being discussed in the media? Even Fox News tippy-toes around this injustice of acting against our own interests!
It's so obvious: Political correctness has nullified the First Amendment and intimidated an entire generation into shameful silence! America is slowly committing political and cultural suicide. The land of freedom envisioned by our founding fathers is decaying into divisiveness, violence and chaos at the hands of an ill-educated generation that truly does not understand the meaning of freedom!
"VietVet" has some thoughts on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
After seeing our President speaking to an assembly of Israeli college students recently on his latest trip to the Middle East and calling for them in the name of "stability and peace", to try and see things the way the Palestinians do and go the distance to make things better for "future generations of disenfranchised Palestinian Arabs"; I was hoping that Pat Condell would have something to say on the subject. And now he does.
After sixty four years of warfare between the Israelis and the Arabs who surround them on all sides, and after peace missions by virtually every President and diplomat of importance who ever lived during that sixty four years; you would think we would have figured out the problem by now - but guess what? It took an private citizen of Great Britain to actually say the words. Click below for the (not so) surprising truth of why people are still dying there.
