I think I’ve heard it all now.
UN Human Rights Council’s Palestine monitor Richard Falk has drawn connections between the recent Boston Marathon bombing and US President Barack Obama’s compliance with the State of Israel.
In an article titled “A Commentary on the Marathon Murders” in the online Foreign Policy Journal, Falk, a self-proclaimed advocate of 9/11 conspiracy theories, implies the Boston attack was largely due to Obama’s recent trip to Israel.
“As long as Tel Aviv has the compliant ear of the American political establishment, those who wish for peace and justice in the world should not rest easy,” he writes.
In his essay, Falk compares the marathon bombing to the 2001 destruction of the Twin Towers in New York City, saying that both incidents have led to America embracing “Islamophobic falsehoods.”
He also mentions that the reason for the lack of progress in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and strained relations between the US and Arab nations is the “strong pushback by Israel and its belligerent leader, [Prime Minister Binyamin] Bibi Netanyahu,” which has led to Obama succumbing to the “ethos of Israel.”
He adds that this has led to “accelerating backpedaling in relation to opening political space in the Middle East.”
Falk describes Obama’s recent speech in Jerusalem during his visit to the Middle East as a “love letter to the Israeli public” rather than a demonstration of his belief in peace.
He may be the only man alive who thinks Obama’s give a rat’s ass about Israel. He also blames America’s global domination for the “hysterical” reaction to the Boston terror attack.
“The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world,” Richard Falk, the UN Human Rights Council’s Palestine monitor, wrote in an article for Foreign Policy Journal titled, “A Commentary on the Marathon Murders.”
“It is soon to tell, and the somewhat hysterical Boston dragnet for the remaining at large and alive suspect does suggest that the wounds of 9/11 are far from healed,” he wrote. “We should be asking ourselves at this moment, ‘How many canaries will have to die before we awaken from our geopolitical fantasy of global domination?’”
And hey, wouldn’t you know it but he’s a contributor and member of the editorial board at The Nation, that fine bastion of tax-exempt leftwing journalism.
Richard Falk, professor emeritus of international law and practice at Princeton University, is the United Nations Human Rights Rapporteur in the Occupied Territories and a member of the Nation editorial board.
He’s also been an author for the Puffington Host. They must be so proud. Meanwhile, speaking of 9/11 Truthers, it’s now revealed killer Tamerlin Tsarnaev is a big fan of 9/11 Truther nutcase Alex Jones. Lovely.
