Why do we have to underwrite and finance this moral illness? It's open season on the Jews. The Judeophobics wear their hatred like some badge of moral courage. It is beyond all reason. Basta. America alone and any other free country that wants to live free or die.

The next UN investigator into Israeli conduct in the "occupied" [quotes mine] territories has stood by comments comparing Israeli actions in Gaza to those of the Nazis. Speaking to the BBC, Professor Richard Falk said he believed that up to now Israel had been successful in avoiding the criticism that it was due.
Professor Falk is scheduled to take up his post for the UN Human Rights Council later in the year. But Israel wants his mandate changed to probe Palestinian actions as well.
Good luck with that Israel!

He [Falk} tells the BBC he is unrepentant about this comparison because heIsn’t it time the American public was shaken from its torpor over the fact that the UN now stands for the abandonment of free societies, the demonisation of their defenders and the extinction of truth and justice, and the endorsement, justification and incitement of terror, tyranny and hatred? The virulent malice towards Israel openly displayed by both the terms of Falk’s appointment and the prejudice of the man himself is but the latest illustration of the UN’s true character as a club of tyranny. Its amusingly named Human Rights Council, after all, was responsible for the frenzied hate-fest against Israel and the Jews in its grotesquely named World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance which it staged in Durban a few days before 9/11, and which demonised Israel as a Nazi and apartheid state, promoted Holocaust denial and used images of anti-Jewish hatred straight out of the Nazi lexicon (and is to have a threatened sequel, Durban II, next year to implement this vile agenda).
