Time to end the UN.
He also sounds like a number of U.S. Left-wing university professors as well. Richard Falk is the kind of material one scrapes off the bottom of one’s shoe after stepping into it.
UN official Richard Falk said the Boston Marathon explosions — which killed three people and injured over 170 — were expected given Washington’s ongoing policy around the world, specifically in the Middle East, Iraq and Afghanistan.
“The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance… the United States has been fortunate not to experience worse blowbacks,” Richard Falk wrote in the Foreign Policy Journal.
Falk, named by the United Nations Human Rights Council a United Nations Special Rapporteur in 2008 and tasked with monitoring the situation “in the Palestinian territories,” has a history of provocative and outrages statements, both supporting Islamic terror and bashing Israel.
The 83-year-old statesman said he was not alone in thinking American actions around the world and in the Middle East specifically were connected to the bombings, which deeply scarred the country and Boston. He cited a PBS call-in program in the hours after the bombing in which people said the US was responsible for “officially sanctioned torture,” and suggested the attack was “retribution for torture inflicted by American security forces.”
“It is horrible, but we in this country should not be too surprised, given our drone attacks that have killed women and children attending weddings and funerals in Afghanistan and Pakistan,” Falk quoted one of the people as saying following the attack.
American politicians don’t “have the courage to connect some of these dots,” Falk said. “Should we not all be meditating on W.H. Auden’s haunting line: ‘Those to whom evil is done/do evil in return.’”
Auden’s poem, “September 1, 1939,” referred to a German justification for launching World War II following the Treaty of Versailles.
