Falk's 'apology'

Earlier this week, I reported on UN 'human rights' rapporteur Richard Falk posting the anti-Semitic and anti-American cartoon pictured above on his blog. On Thursday, Falk 'apologized.' Well, sort of....
Richard Falk's “apology” raises serious questions that go to both his judgment and his character. Finding himself in a corner of his own making, he states that, “I oppose any denigration of a people based on ethnicity, race, religion,” as if this were a special badge of honor, and then adds to ethnicity, race, religion, “stage of development”—which is not a human rights issue.

Even stranger is the banality that follows, “We must . . .. treat animals with as much respect as possible.” Falk here appears not only to be equating animals with human beings, but to be apologizing for his cartoon's insult to Jews as well as dogs. Do these mutterings truly befit someone the UN Human Rights Council has chosen to employ as an expert on human rights?
Read the whole thing.

The fact he was born to a Jewish mother doesn't make him a Jew! If there is another Sanhedrin, the rules on who is a Jew should be revised. Mere accident of birth should not qualify for continued membership in the Jewish nation!

He's a sad excuse for a human being, all the same!

Carl, you were ahead of the curve! Well, we absolutely don't want to dis our pooches.

"As soon as I was made aware of the anti-semitic content of the cartoon I removed it from my blog, although initially I denied such a posting because I did not realize that it was anti-semitic and was mistaken as to what was being referred to."

You see he couldn't wrap around his mind around the possibility that a rabid dog with a kipa taking a whiz on lady justice was anti-semitic so he just sat stunned before his computer. What were people possibly talking about??
