Falk won't get a visa

Israel's foreign ministry announced today that it will not grant a visa to Richard Falk, a Jewish professor from Princeton University who has compared Israel to Nazi Germany and accused Israel of planning a 'holocaust' against 'Palestinian' Arabs. The UN's 'Human Rights Council' has appointed Falk to be its special investigator of Israeli actions in Judea, Samaria and Gaza for the next six years.

The refusal to grant Falk a visa will be in effect until at least September. In September, the council will meet again, and Israel intends to ask the council to expand Falk's mandate to include investigating allegations of Palestinian human rights abuses against Israelis. As if he will find anything to investigate. And that's NOT to say that those abuses don't exist.


HotAir reports that Falk told Al-Beeb today that he stands by his accusations against Israel.

The next UN investigator into Israel conduct in the occupied 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.

Captain Ed has many more pertinent comments in his HotAir post. Read the whole thing.

You can always look hard enough to find a self-hating Jew to prosecute the Arabs' war upon Israel. The likes of Falk should be permanently banned from setting foot in Israel.
