Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

You'd think someone with a career in politics in an institution meant to foster peace and cooperation would be held responsible for publicly insulting an entire country on the receiving end of a bombing at a civilian event and lose his job.

It's sad for those who lost their lives and limbs but the same things happen overseas all the time due to our Government involvement in foreign affairs. Disagree all you want but I blame the Government just as much as the individuals involved.

One huge flaw with that pie chart.

Domestically means on US soil, not US government or the US itself. It means the Federal reserve owns it. Which means China is the country the US is most in debt to after the Federal reserve which is a private bank, not a country.

Richard Falck is also a 9/11 "troother" conspiracist and an antisemite who parrots the Islamist hate propaganda against Israel.
No surprise there.

And he fits right in with the current UN.

How is this even remotely acceptable?  Get US OUT of the UN!!!!

Breitbart.com is a conservative site, so we can expect bias, but they are simply distorting now and being manipulative with our emotions.

Richard Falk never stated that. His original essay can be found on his wordpress. What Richard Falk did say about the attacks was to call them "murders" and "horrific".

In fact the word "deserve" does not even appear at all in his essay. They do appear in the comments by a one Rabbi Ira Youdovin who stated: "What you characterize benignly as a “reflection” was, in fact, an extended and detailed indictment of American policy throughout the world, with the strong implication that America deserves what it gets, including the murder and maiming of some 200 men, women and children at a sporting event."

Rabbi Ira Youdvin is the one who said that, not Richard Falk.

We should also look at who wrote the article you linked us too, Anne Beyefsky wrote the article and not only is the title false "UN Human Rights Official Says Boston Got What It Deserved" but it was her, and her alone, who wrote those words.

Anne Bayefsky is a board member of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs and has ties to Israel.

So the runners and people in the crowd were part of an American global domination project and deserved what they got according to him?

Hope someone gives him what he deserves!

You are the only one calling for violence here.

This is what Falk said: The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world.

This is what Breitbart said: Boston’s dead were "canaries" that "have to die" because of America’s “fantasy of global domination."

See the difference? Maybe...but will you understand the difference?

View Postredhen, on 23 April 2013 - 09:08 PM, said:

From the article; "Richard Falk is the UN’s “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.” He has held the post since 2008, despite exposure as a 9/11 conspiracy theorist."

That's all I need to know, thanks. next.

ofc you are against protecting the rights of Palestinians, just because your view includes intolerance towards Muslims.

All people deserve rights.

Assassination for what? For writing an article which you clearly didn't read?

Some are too ready to believe the words of someone (Bayefsky) whose interests lies with Israel and maintaining policies of separation and aggression.

The words "justifiable resistance" never appear in Falk's essay.

I understand some might have difficulties reading his essay but one should at least understand the original material instead of assuming that the claims of an intermediary are accurate, what Bayefsky claims was on it, simply is not.

The chickens do come home to roost. No American wants our country to be attacked which is why we should adapt our foreign policy to be more conducive to peace.

I understand some have a view which places their hatred for Muslims and maintaining aggression as a greater priority than keeping us safe back at home. That view is the danger. Progress will balm us from attacks and foster greater peace in the world.

Right-wing religious views that Israel is a Holy Land that only Jews deserve and others should not have rights there is simply causing instability in our world and brings harm to our nation.

Basing our foreign policy on the Bible in the modern era is something no one should accept as agreeable not even Christians.

I do think we should reexamine some of the stances that we make in the name of Israel.  I still really do not understand why our country seems so entranced by them.

Because of a 2000-year-old book from which we need to disentangle our foreign policy from.

The amount of money AIPAC contributes to certain policiticans might be influential but is a minimal investment in light of the money we give to Israel as foreign aid...do they really need it? They are just destabalizing the region. The have had years to make peace and they do have the upper hand, the power, and the money to be more responsible as the dominant force in the region.
