Falling Slowly


Glen Hansard from the film Once. I've been listening to this over and over of late. The whole album is beautiful.

Richard Falk,
Anti-Israel
UN investigator,
Doesn't Believe
Al Qaeda
Attacked US
On 9/11


Oh, for God's sake, what is wrong with our world that we would put such a man in charge of watching over the Middle East conflict for the United Nations?

From the aptly named, Guide to the Perplexed:


I can't believe I overlooked this--and that everyone else has, as well: Princeton prof Richard Falk, newly-appointed by the UN Human Rights Council as its "Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967," is also a devoted supporter of the crackpot "9/11 Truth" movement, which denies that Al-Qaeda attacked the U.S. on September 11, 2001.

Check out this radio interview, as well as the foreword Falk wrote to David Ray Griffin's 9/11 conspiracy theory book, The New Pearl Harbor. According to this Troofer website, Falk even worked to find a publisher for Griffin's book.

This is the man who will be reporting on Israel's human rights violations for the next several years. The U.S. should immediately demand the removal of this man from his post. Or, better yet--keep him there, the better to discredit every one of his bogus reports.
