Argument nummer 6899 waarom de VN mensenrechtenraad een aanfluiting is en niks van doen heeft met mensenrechten maar alles met een selectieve agenda en het bashen van een zeker land....
Israel is ‘genocidal,’ says UN’s Richard Falk in TV interview
is executive director of UN Watch, a non-governmental human rights organization in Geneva, Switzerland.
Falk is the UN Human Rights Council’s permanent investigator of “Israel’s violations of the principles and bases of international law.”
“The UN’s special rapporteur on human rights warns ‘the world is slouching towards nothing less than a Palestinian Holocaust.’ Professor Richard Falk thank you very much for joining us. Why is this behavior actually genocidal?”
“When you target a group, an ethnic group, and inflict this kind of punishment upon them, you are in effect nurturing a kind of criminal intention that is genocidal.”
Falk uses his imprimatur as a UN official to make the grievously false accusation that Israel is acting with “genocidal intent” and perpetrating a “Holocaust.”
If Israel really is “genocidal,” it only follows logically that Falk will justify violence against Israelis, as he did in a , berating “demands by Israel that Palestinians renounce violence” while Israel “sustains a structure of occupation and oppression.”
In reacting to previous outrages by Falk, the U.S. merely asked the former academic to voluntarily resign; he refused. The U.S. must now take action to remove him.
In 2014, we will finally see some movement against inequality: Israel will finally be accepted into one of the council’s regional groups, the Western group, and EU and other Western countries have agreed not to participate in the hateful day against Israel that is held at every council session.
It will be equally fitting if, after 20 years of investigating ”Israel’s violations of the principles and bases of international law,” 2014 is also the year when this unjust, one-sided and prejudicial mandate is removed as well.
