JNS.orgCanada has called on the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to dismiss its special investigator, Richard Falk, over a recent statement accusing Israel of having “genocidal intentions” against the Palestinians in an interview on the Russia Today (RT) television network.

“When you target a group, an ethnic group and inflict this kind of punishment upon them, you are in effect nurturing a kind of criminal intention that is genocidal,” Falk told RT.

Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird called on the U.N. to dismiss Falk immediately.

“Canada has previously called for Falk to be fired for his numerous outrageous and anti-Semitic statements and these comments underscore once more the complete and total absurdity of his service as a UN Special Rapporteur,” Baird said in a statement.

Falk has a long history of making anti-Israel and anti-American remarks, including the floating of conspiracy theories. Last spring, he drew widespread condemnation when he suggested that U.S. and Israeli policies were responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing.

    Touche, Richard Falk: When YOU, Richard Falk, target a group, an ethnic group, that being Israel, and inflict this kind of punishment upon THEM, YOU Richard Falk are in effect nurturing a kind of criminal intention that is genocidal. Thank you Richard Falk for making a great point, you are a confused, self-loathing genocidal fool. Thank you for disgracing the UN once again as well as everyone who has seen the effect of true genocide and apartheid. I hope for Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever pagan holiday Falk celebrates someone buys him a dictionary.
