US Rips UN Officer Who Defended Boston Terror; Said Bombings a Result of US Favoritism of Israel

Ambassador Susan Rice -- who represents the U.S. at the United Nations -- has demanded the dismissal of Richard Falk, a top UN official who recently sought to justify the deadly Boston Marathon bombings as a reaction to American policy towards the Middle East, the Spero Forum website reports today (April 25, 2013).

Serving as the United Nations special rapporteur for human rights in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, Falk implied that the bombings were the wages of an American "geopolitical fantasy of global domination," as well as America's unyielding alliance with the state of Israel.

"As long a 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," Falk wrote in an article published in Foreign Policy Journal.

Abraham Foxman -- executive director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) -- denounced Falk, saying in a statement: "His outrageous assertion that the Boston terror attack can be traced to U.S. and Israeli policy is not surprising, given his notorious record of anti-Israel and anti-American propaganda."
