Khomeini Supporter Appointed Special Agent on UN Human Rights Council
The UN appointed an America-hating Ayatollah Khomeini supporter to the UN Human Rights Council. Richard A. Falk, who has compared Israel to the Nazis, was appointed special investigator on Israeli actions in the Palestinian territories.
The Jerusalem Post reported:
The United Nations Human Rights Council on Wednesday appointed American Jewish law professor Richard A. Falk – who has compared Israel to the Nazis – as special investigator on Israeli actions in the territories for a six-year term.
Dugard leaves his post in June after seven years. He made waves when he compared Israeli actions in the territories with apartheid and colonialism.
Falk, in his academic writing, has already stated that a Palestinian holocaust was in the making.
Yitzhak Levanon, ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, spoke against Falk’s appointment in an address to the council on Wednesday.
“In a recent article, [Falk] stated that he did not think it to be “an irresponsible overstatement to associate the treatment of Palestinians with the criminalized Nazi record of collective atrocity,” Levanon said.
“He has taken part in a UN fact-finding mission which determined that suicide bombings were a valid method of ‘struggle,'” Levanon said.
Falk has a long record of opposing the US and is a supporter of Ayatollah Khomeini:
In Falk’s calculus, the root cause of Islamic terrorist attacks is that “the mass of humanity … finds itself under the heels of U.S. economic, military, cultural, and diplomatic power.” In 1979 he was an enthusiastic supporter of the Ayatollah Khomeni, who he hailed as a “liberator” of Iran. Falk continues to invariably side with America’s foes in international disputes.
