HE SHOULD FALK OFF
Imagine if the above cartoon depicted a kaffiyeh-wearing dog chewing on a bloody skeleton and urinating on Lady Justice instead of a yarmulke and was posted on the blog site of a leading United Nations official.
Apart from the violence that would explode within hours across the Arab and Moslem world, the official's role with the UN would have come to an abrupt end. He would have been drummed out of the office in disgrace even had he not lied about the whole thing.
And lie is what slimy UN envoy for human rights in the Palestinian territories, Richard Falk did last week about this anti-Semitic cartoon. He then removed it and lied about it.
"I know nothing about such a cartoon, and would never publish such a thing, ever." he declared before backtracking with a pithy explanation that he "didn’t realize that it could be viewed as anti-Semitic, and still do not realize."
Read the story from Commentary.
Falk's boss still won't sack the bigot but in any decent organisation he would have tendered his resignation long ago.
No, strike that.
No decent organisation would have hired him for the role given his obsessional hatred of Israel in the first place.
