The UN Human Rights Commission 9/11 conspiracy appointment

The NZ Herald carries an NZPA story on NZ’s campaign website for a seat on the . Again, we should avoid any involvement with this body.

The Human Rights Council has appointed to a six year term as a special investigator on Israel. Falk is ideal for the job because he believes suicide bombing is a human right, and also wrote the preface for a 9/11 conspiracy book. You know the ones which say 9/11 was really done by the US Government.

But after Falk compared Israel to the Nazis, you knew his appointment was guaranteed. The Times looks at what this means:

… let’s say, for one moment, that the objective of the Human Rights Council was actually to improve human rights in, let’s further say, the occupied territories. Would you employ someone who has made utterances that ensure that all of Israeli public opinion – including that part critical of its Government – would unite 100 per cent to resist him? Of course you wouldn’t.

The implication of this logic is simple. The Human Rights Council doesn’t give a toss about the human rights of the Palestinians in the sense of wanting them upheld. Its majority is far more interested in using Israel as a stick to beat the US with, or – in the case of Islamic states – as a bogeyman to dampen down domestic discontent.

This is the core point. The Human rights Council has no interest in improving human rights.

So Falk thinks 9/11 was an inside job, supports suicide bombing and compares Israel to Nazi Germany. What other views does he have:

In a February 16, 1979, op-ed for the New York Times, Mr. Falk praised Ayatollah Khomeini and bemoaned his ill treatment in the American press. He wrote, “The depiction of him as fanatical, reactionary and the bearer of crude prejudices seems certainly and happily false.

The NY Sun goes on to note a few months later 52 diplomats were taken hostage for 444 days.
