...you know the drill by now.
Well, if there is going to be formalized hate, the BBC should be the ones to report it, propogandize it, and glorify in it:
The next UN investigator into Israeli 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....
I don't know what to say. Really, do I need to even say anything?
I will huck a loogie at the BBC, who call Gaza "occupied" although Israel withdrew and handed it over to the peace-loving Palestinians almost five years ago. And for good measure, Biased BBC reports that the network broadcast today introducing the story of Richard Falk began by declaring the UN the "highest moral authority" .
Well then. Like pigs rolling in sh*t, indeed.
Israel will make a token gesture of defiance before the emasculated Olmert gives in:
The Israeli Foreign Ministry said Tuesday it won't allow the U.N. official appointed to investigate Israeli-Palestinian human rights to enter the country, after he stood by comments comparing Israelis to Nazis.
Richard Falk is scheduled to take up his post with the U.N. Human Rights Council in May, but Israel's Foreign Ministry said it will deny Falk a visa to enter Israel, Gaza and the West Bank, at least until a September meeting of the council.
At that meeting, Israel intends to ask the council to expand the envoy's mission to include investigating Palestinian human rights abuses against Israelis. The mandate currently allows him to monitor only human rights violations by Israel in the Palestinian territories.
Good luck with that. Can't wait to see the balanced report that Falk issues.
Anyway - here's an appropriate coda:
Falk, a professor emeritus at Princeton University....
You know that smell you think that you smell when you hit Jersey? Now you know the source...
