Apparently Princeton University considers Anti-American and Anti-Semetic commentary to be acceptable. Richard Falk will be giving a forum there on February 18th – and one wonders how they can provide him a forum.
As I have written on Front Page Mag, “Richard Falk blames the Boston marathon terrorist attack on Israel (and America). He has claimed that the 9/11 World Trade Center attack was an American government conspiracy. He posted on his website a blood-soaked dog eating bones, urinating on lady justice – wearing a yarmulke with a Jewish star.”
The United Kingdom, issued a statement last year which said that this was “the third time we have had cause to express our concerns about Mr. Falk’s anti-Semitic remarks. It is important to the U.K. that special rapporteurs uphold the highest standards in their work and we have twice previously made clear that remarks by Mr. Falk were unacceptable.” Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird has said, “Once again, United Nations official Richard Falk has spewed more mean-spirited, anti-Semitic rhetoric, this time blaming the attacks in Boston on President Obama and the State of Israel. The United Nations should be ashamed to even be associated with such an individual.” One wonders if Princeton cares?
Falk has compared Israelis to Nazis and criticized Israel for keeping a terrorist, Islamic Jihad leader in protective custody. United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Falk’s statements “undermine the credibility and work of the UN.”
Anti-Semitism is permitted at Princeton University.
