Richard Falk has once again blamed the victim for the crime. US Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice has replied with a tweet:
Outraged by Richard Falk's highly offensive Boston comments. Someone who spews such vitriol has no place at the UN. Past time for him to go.

I take issue with one part of her statement: Falk is a perfect fit for the UN. His views seem to be widely held (if not always enunciated). It’s time for the UN itself to go.
It’s fair to say we don’t think much of UN tool Richard Falk. We’ve spoken of him many times at Israellycool. In case you’ve forgotten who he is:
Falk, named by the United Nations Human Rights Council a United Nations Special Rapporteur in 2008 and tasked with monitoring the situation “in the Palestinian territories,” has a history of provocative and outrages statements, both supporting Islamic terror and bashing Israel.
We’ll he’s come out with another atrocious statement that clearly displays how much he hates Israel. No real surprise, he’s been representing the UN with these kind of views for years:
UN official Richard Falk said the Boston Marathon explosions — which killed three people and injured over 170 — were expected given Washington’s ongoing policy around the world, specifically in the Middle East, Iraq and Afghanistan.
“The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance… the United States has been fortunate not to experience worse blowbacks,” Richard Falk wrote in the Foreign Policy Journal.
