The United States expressed outrage on Wednesday over a report published by the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) that accused Israel of establishing an “apartheid regime” that “dominates the Palestinian people as a whole.”
“That such anti-Israel propaganda would come from a body whose membership nearly universally does not recognize Israel is unsurprising,” American UN Envoy Nikki Haley said in a statement. “That it was drafted by Richard Falk, a man who has repeatedly made biased and deeply offensive comments about Israel and espoused ridiculous conspiracy theories, including about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, is equally unsurprising.”
“The United Nations Secretariat was right to distance itself from this report, but it must go further and withdraw the report altogether,” Haley went on to say. “The United States stands with our ally Israel and will continue to oppose biased and anti-Israel actions across the UN system and around the world.”...It's way past time to put Professor Falk (who, according to Wikipedia, was "born into an assimilationist New York Jewish family which all but repudiated the ethnic side of Jewishness") out to pasture, no?
Update: "You have to have such a dramatic blindnesss...to the flaws of Israel's opposition," says Ben Shapiro, "to make Israel the bad guy in this conflict..."
That's Richard Falk for you: dramatically--and catastrophically--blind.
