A real masterpiece of anti-Semitic propaganda. Reminiscent of the cartoons of the Nazi Era.
Needless to say the proverbial excrement has hit the fan.
Falk issued the following statement:
"With apologies, I realize that the cartoon... had strongly anti-Semitic symbolism that I had not detected before it was pointed out to me...In other words, I apologize to all the Dogs and also the Jews. My Muslim
"My intention has never been to demean in any way Jews as a people despite my strong criticisms of Israeli policies, and some versions of Zionist support...
"Beyond this, if we are to have a sustainable human future we must also make peace with nature, and treat animals with as much respect as possible...
"At the same time, I am quite aware that many of the messages were motivated to discredit me due to my views of Israeli policies and behavior."
Needless to say that that statement rubbed the cat's fur the wrong way.
The United States, joined by American Jewish groups, has called on the United Nations to sack its rapporteur on PA rights, Richard Falk.I didn't think that the UN could be embarrassed any more by Falk. After all it has already held 2 meetings of the Nazi Party (Durban I and II) with the third installment of this farce to be held in New York City in September. What a great way to remember the events of September 11, 2001 by planning to reopen the gas chambers at Auschwitz.
Falk posted an anti-Semitic cartoon on his blog, and when criticized, replaced it with an apology that claimed he could not detect the anti-Semitic content of the cartoon “until it was pointed out,” and appeared to equate Jews with animals.
The New York-based Anti-Defamation League (ADL), B'nai Brith International, U.N. Watch (AJC) and Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, joined the Obama administration – as well as U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee – in calling on the U.N. to sack Falk, or at least issue a statement of condemnation.
“This latest action compounds the long existing problem of Mr. Falk's blatant biases and repugnant behavior,” said a statement issued by the President's Conference.
“His history of hateful provocations, including the spread of 9/11 conspiracy theories blaming the United States for self-inflicted terrorism, and comparison of Israelis to Nazis, are evidence that he cannot fulfill his responsibilities consistent with the U.N.'s mission and standards.”
Joseph Torsella, the U.S. envoy to the United Nations for management and reform, had already slammed Falk in an earlier statement Friday, saying he was “deeply disturbed” the rapporteur had “once again used his personal blog to publish abhorrent material.
“His shameful and outrageous behavior is an embarrassment to the United Nations,” he added. “Someone who publishes such vicious images has no place in the U.N. system.”
It is time for the United States to elect a true World Leader and not a hyped-up Community Organizer. A leader who will take a long, hard look at the Tower of Babel that has become the UN, and cut all funds to it. A leader who will have the balls to pull us out of it and kick those freeloading Third World imbeciles back to the hellhole countries they come from. We could use "Eminent Domain" as the perfect excuse to do so.
I even have the perfect place to put the new UN: Mecca, Saudi Arabia. After all, the UN is just a patsy for the Arab League, and caters to their every whim.
