Congress Takes On U.N.’s Richard Falk over Boston Comments

Outraged Members of Congress are circulating a letter demanding that the Obama Administration take action against U.N. Special Ambassador Richard Falk, the man who had the unmitigated gall to write that Americans brought the Boston bombings on themselves.

Falk made similarly appalling statements after September 11, 2001, and it sadly speaks volumes about the U.N. that he has managed to keep his position as “U.N. Special Rapporteur” and “human rights expert” in New York. For his anti-American and deeply insensitive statements, Falk must be dismissed from his post—the sooner the better.

In an April 21 commentary in Foreign Policy Journal, Falk stated that “the American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world.” He calls the innocent Bostonians “canaries” in the coalmine.

Falk’s comments got a rise out of the U.S. delegation to the United Nations. On April 23, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice tweeted: “Outraged by Richard Falk’s highly offensive Boston comments. Someone who spews such vitriol has no place at the UN. Past time for him to go.” Both the Bush and Obama Administrations have complained bitterly about Falk’s rampant anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism since he saw fit to blame September 11, 2001, on the United States itself to little effect.

Members of Congress are now also demanding Falk’s firing in uncertain terms. The letter, authored by Representative Mike Kelly (R–PA), makes five points:

1) It rejects his claim that the United States is seeking global domination;

2) It rejects Falk’s allegation that the U.S.–Israeli relationship is responsible for provoking violence and affirms the U.S. friendship with Israel;

3) It asserts that Falk’s website, featuring anti-American and anti-Semitic cartoons, discredits the U.N. Human Rights Council;

4) It condemns Falk’s endorsement of crazy conspiracy theories that the World Trade Center bombing was perpetrated and covered up by the U.S. government; and

5) It states that Falk has violated the code of conduct of the U.S. Human Rights Council with his “offensive statements, irresponsible conduct, and poor judgment.”

Falk represents the anti-colonial agenda in all its twisted glory, rampant as it is at the United Nations. Good for Congress for taking on Falk’s outrageous arguments and for speaking up for their dead and wounded fellow countrymen.

President Barack Obama
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NWWashington, DC 20500

Dear President Obama:

We, the undersigned members of Congress, write to express appreciation for youradministration’s recent and past condemnation of Richard Falk, the United Nations SpecialRapporteur on “the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967”and further urge you to instruct U.S. Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Council EileenDonahoe to demand that the UN Human Rights Council take action to remove Falk on accountof his long record of offensive statements, conduct, and poor judgment falling short of thestandards established by the Council for mandate holders, culminating in his despicablecomments blaming the U.S. and Israel for the horrific Boston Marathon terrorist bombings.

We condemn Falk for his offensive belief that the Boston attack was justified because “[t]heAmerican global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world” and his suggestion that the U.S. may “experience worse blowbacks” if it doesnot “rethink [its] relations to others in the world, starting with the Middle East.” We rejectFalk’s outrageous characterization of the U.S. as seeking “global dominationand emphaticallystate that the liability and the guilt for this deadly act of terrorism rests squarely on the shouldersof the attackers and those who provided any support or guidance for them.

Furthermore, we condemn Falk for blaming Israel and the close relationship between the U.S.and our ally and friend Israel for the Boston attack, particularly his offensive assertion that “aslong as Tel Aviv has the compliant ear of the American political establishment, those who wishfor peace and justice in the world should not rest easy.” On the contrary, as proud supporters ofIsrael, we affirm that Israel is a beacon of freedom and democracy and that promoting Israel’slegitimacy and security is a key to seeking peace and justice in this world. Thus, we also opposeFalk’s offensive past attempts to economically isolate Israel by demanding boycotts on“businesses that are profiting from the Israeli settlement enterprise” until they conform to“international human rights and humanitarian law and standards.”

Falk has embarrassed and discredited his office and the UN Human Rights Council through hisshocking anti-Semitic tendencies, such as posting a cartoon on his website with a dog wearing a“USA” t-shirt and a Jewish religious head-covering. His history of anti-Semitism calls intoquestion his suitability to fulfill his mandate with the impartiality necessary to maintain the trustof Israel, which is obviously a key stakeholder in the “situation of human rights on Palestinianterritories.” Moreover, we condemn Falk’s repeated endorsement of conspiracy theorists who allege that theSeptember 11th attacks were both perpetrated and covered up by the U.S. government andmedia. In particular, we condemn his odious claim that President George W. Bush was “openlyseeking a pretext to launch a regime-changing war against Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, and the 9/11events, as interpreted and spun, provided just the supportive domestic climate needed” for thewar.

Falk’s established record of offensive statements, irresponsible conduct, and poor judgment fallshort of the standards that the UN Human Rights Council has established for mandate holders,specifically requirements of “impartiality” in the fulfillment of his mandate and “personalintegrity” that are of “paramount importance.Further, Falk has violated the UN Human RightsCouncil’s Code of Conduct for Special Procedures Mandate-holders, specifically therequirements to “[u]phold the highest standards of ... integrity,” including “probity, impartiality,equity, honesty, and good faith” as well as to “[a]dopt a conduct that is consistent with theirstatus at all times” and to “behav[e] in such a way as to maintain and reinforce the trust theyenjoy of all stakeholders.”

For the above reasons, we urge you to instruct Ambassador Donahoe to demand that the UNHuman Rights Council take action to remove Falk from his position as the United NationsSpecial Rapporteur on “the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since1967.

Sincerely,
Members of Congress
