UN official, Richard Falk, says Boston got what it deserves, quotes ‘whom evil is done, do evil in return’

UN Human Rights Council expert Richard Falk said in a statment that Bostonians got what they deserved noting that George W. Bush sought a pre-text to invade Iraq and dropped a famous quote which blamed America.

Falk’s commentary began by stating how ‘Islamaphobic’ America has become and how Bush manipulated the crowds to go to war in Iraq, “the neocon presidency of George W. Bush was in 2001, prior to the attacks, openly seeking a pretext to launch a regime-changing war against Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, and the 9/11 events, as interpreted and spun, provided just the supportive domestic climate needed for launching an aggressive war against the Baghdad regime.”

The article then attacks Bostonians directly with their “hysterical dragnet” before explaining how Boston’s dead were “canaries” that “have to die” because of America’s “fantasy of global domination.”

“The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world. In some respects, the United States has been fortunate not to experience worse blowbacks, and these may yet happen, especially if there is no disposition to rethink US relations to others in the world, starting with the Middle East.”

Some critics may interpret that comment as a threat, especially as Falk says the US needs to better accommodate the demands of “the Islamic world,” especially over the Israel/Palestine conflict.

Critics attack Falk, saying he espouses the worst forms of antisemitism from his UN perch, and for his efforts has been rewarded with repeated opportunities by the Council to lecture others on his world view.

“Obama’s March trip to Israel was highlighted by his March 21st speech in Jerusalem, which was delivered as a love letter to the Israeli public rather than qualifying as a good faith effort to demonstrate his belief in a just peace. Such obsequious diplomacy was a disappointment even to those of us with low expectations in what the White House is willing to overcome the prolonged ordeal of the Palestinian people.”

    Death to the UN and Death to all who oppose the USA.

  10. DSkoll says:

    Pointing out that Islam is an evil set of nihilistic mumbo-jumbo that in the last 20 years has motivated scores of terror attacks is not Islamophobia. It’s simply pointing out the truth.

  11. MrEthiopian says:

    Falk why don’t you come to Boston, we have a special award just for you, but you need to come here in person to collect it.

  12. nazikjatoi says:

    Killing of innocent is not forgivable everywhere into the world. Even if he is a Muslim or the otherwise. But we, the Muslims, also do salute to Richard Falk. No doubt he has spoken truth. US leadership should rethink and revise its policies toward the Muslim world.

    • what? says:

      He is supporting killing innocent people (including muslims- the bombs were not so selective) in Boston – are you representing all Muslims ? You appear to be

  14. RIzzle says:

    “To whom Evil is done, do evil in return”? Well that probably is a justification in some Muslim country, but we are a country founded and grounded by Christianity and it’s principles. Our teachings would be to offer up the other cheek.

    • GMONEY says:

      Actually this country was founded and grounded on non-religous principals. So many Christains think our founding fathers were devout christians starting a nation on christain beleifs. Read something other than the bible for once and you will learn that many of our founding fathers did not subscribe to any religion.

      • Kyle says:

        GMoney. Care to explain the pilgrims and that whole “One Nation Under God” thing?

        I’m not saying all of them were Christians or even “religious” as most people would define them today.

        But your dismissive tone: “read something other than The Bible”, when all the person offered up was a Christian doctrine that refers to dealing with violent aggression highlights what your agenda here is.

        One would think that you must have something better to do with your time. But perhaps not. Dumping on Christians and their beliefs has become so hip today, my good man. I hope you think you are as cool as the other side of the pillow, my brother.

      • what? says:

        wrong – you ought to read history and the Bill of rights and Constitution

        • Kyle says:

          Brilliant retort. I love how you explained the history of the pilgrims and the usage of the phrase “One Nation Under God.” Bravo!

          Idiot.

    • smith says:

      You don’t even understand the quote! He is describing the Boston bombings as evil. If you do evil to people, some will do evil back to you. The nazis did evil and they got evil in return. America has murdered, maimed, and destroyed the lives of millions of Muslims. It uses military force and economic coercion to dominate not just Muslims, but the world. America is certainly not following any kind of Christian principles. How can you be so blind as not see that your country is murdering, maiming, destroying, and attempting to dominate the world in order to further its own interests?

    • “RIzzle,”

      IF UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WAS FULL OF CHRISTIANS, THIS NATION WOULD NOT BE TRYING TO DESTROY MIDDLE-EASTERN LIVELIHOOD.

  15. Book stranger than fiction…

    “Glad Tidings” Tade Reen

    Description
    On September 11th, 2001, Jack Costello’s adored wife, unborn daughter, and older brother, a New York City Fireman, are killed. He quits his job on Wall Street and descends into depression lasting until his loved ones stage an intervention. On the one year anniversary of the attacks, Jack appears on a live cable news show where he encounters Dr. Ted Chamberlain, a controversial college professor. Dr. Chamberlain prods Jack by proclaiming that those killed on 9/11 “were not innocent victims” and “got what they had coming to them”.

    Travis

    You were what? Five years old when the Twin Towers were hit? Surely, you’ll impress me with a sharp recollection of whom was responsible for that, won’t you? Nevermind that, because frankly.. your opinion is worthless to me and anyone with a brain. Here is a fact: Saddam Hussein and Iraq were not responsible for 9/11. Not in any way, shape, or form. Period. End of story. Your opinion is worthless if you can’t even get that fact straight.

  17. Islamaphobia is not necessary. What is necessary, however, is critical thinking for one’s self and the environment that surrounds them. Situational awareness and consideration for others have seemingly been replaced by panic, fear, and hatred.

  18. […] Richard Falk, who is an appointee to two UN positions on the Palestinian territories, made the comments in a statement published to the Foreign Policy Journal, according to the Global Dispatch. […]

  19. Travis says:

    Bush ‘manipulated the crowds’? Iraq had chemical weapons! THEY HAD USED THEM DURING THE INVASION OF KUWAIT IN THE FIRST GULF WAR! We GAVE Iraq the chemical weapons! Bush didn’t manipulate the public, he told the truth! How US citizens could have forgotten about the Iraqi chemical warheads still baffles me. This man’s argument is worthless if he can’t even get his facts straight, when a 17-year-old high school student, such as myself, can.

  20. Jochair says:

    Islamophobia is a positive and necessary value US must not succumb to Islamist disinformation and manipulation.
