UN Watch Condemns "Falk Talk"--to No Avail

From the site:
GENEVA, August 26, 2013 – The British Academy is supporting a lecturer who has been strongly condemned for racism by British Prime Minister David Cameron and by the Foreign Office's anti-discrimination division, reported UN Watch.
The Geneva-based non-governmental human rights group today urged the head of the British Academy, Lord Stern of Brentford, to immediately remove all support for the scheduled September 11 Canberra appearance by Richard Falk, a UN Human Rights Council official recently denounced by world leaders for suggesting that the Boston bombings were the fault of the U.S. and Israel.
Falk was condemned by UN chief Ban Ki-moon, and by the US, UK and Canadian governments, for blaming the Boston terrorist attack on “the American global domination project” and “Tel Aviv.”
The Sept. 11 timing of the conference is doubly offensive because Falk was condemned by the UN chief for 9/11 conspiracy theories...
The Sept. 11 timing is in fact triply offensive because it's a conference dealing with "Human Rights in Palestine," and on the day of the 9/11/01 attacks, Palestinians, upon hearing the news, celebrated like crazy.
