Israel to deny UN official entry for comparing Israel to Nazis
By The Associated Press
The Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that it will not allow the United Nations official appointed to investigate Israeli-Palestinian human rights to enter the country, after he stood by comments comparing Israelis to Nazis.
Richard Falk is scheduled to take up his post with the UN Human Rights Council in May, but the Foreign Ministry said it will deny Falk a visa to enter Israel, Gaza and the West Bank, at least until a September meeting of the council.
At that meeting, Israel intends to ask the council to expand the envoy’s mission to include investigating Palestinian human rights abuses against Israelis. The mandate currently allows him to monitor only human rights violations by Israel in the Palestinian territories.
Israel’s great mission: Shut up every person everywhere in the world who has a word of criticism…
By threats, guilt trips, name calling, intimidation, laws, bribery, solitary confinement for 18 years and no exit visa ever, assassination… whatever…
