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" recently wrote a letter to Senator Cadman regarding recent gun control legislation.
Dear Senator Cadman,
As Republican Minority leader of the Colorado State Senate, I am sending you this e-mail in the hope that you will pass it's contents on to your Democratic colleagues in the Senate.
My wife and I live in Washington state. Last year, as we do every year after school is out (she is a teacher), we drove to and spent a two week vacation traveling and playing in Montana and Wyoming. Between those two states, we spent something over $7k dollars on gasoline, food, lodging, fishing licenses, trinkets etc. That was our cheerful contribution to the economies of those two states.
This year, our plan was to take a road trip to Colorado and New Mexico, spending about a week in each state; as neither of us has ever been to those states before. I am sad to say that our plans have now changed because of the proposed new firearms legislation that Colorado is contemplating.
Instead, in protest of that legislation,we will still be visiting New Mexico, but we will be going there by way of Nevada and instead of spending the time we had slated for Colorado, we will visit Arizona instead. I tell you this, because as a retired educator and defender of The Constitution of the United States, I am deeply disturbed at the direction your state and this country is taking.
We citizens are being lead - or pushed - (depending upon one's perspective) toward totalitarian Government oversight of every facet of our lives; by a Democratic Party and a Governing Regime, that has little regard for the rights of it's citizens; rights that are Guaranteed under The Constitution of the United States. The Democratic Party of this Country seems determined to turn our country, the once great beacon of Freedom and individual choice of the world; into just another European clone Nanny State; where government no longer listens to or cares about the will of the people - but just simply RULES them; secure in the knowledge that Government ALWAYS know best.
Please tell your Democratic Colleagues in the Colorado State Senate, that since Michael Bloomberg, along with being Mayor of that Jewel of the East Coast - New York City, is now apparently the titular head of the Democratic Party nationwide; and that if they are going to allow him to dictate political direction of their party and tell the people of the State of Colorado how they should lead their lives; perhaps they should also provide him with suitable office space and an administrative assistant to help him carry out his mission. They might even want to provide some space for George Soros as well.
As for my wife and I, we will vacation and spend our money elsewhere this year. That gesture my seem simply symbolic and inconsequential to your states legislators. But I hope your state misses it - just a little bit.
