Antisemite of the Week: Richard Falk – Bigot Non Grata

Richard Falk is a retired Princeton Professor and disgraced ex-UN official. He was officially denounced by the United Kingdom on at least three separate occasions for antisemitism.

In 2011, then British Prime Minister David Cameron and the ADL strongly condemned Falk’s publication of an antisemitic cartoon; the image showed a dog wearing a Jewish head-covering urinating on a depiction of justice, and devouring a bloody skeleton.

In 2012, the British Foreign Office condemned Falk for providing the cover endorsement of an antisemitic book that describes Jews as Nazis and which further asks whether “Hitler might have been right after all.”

In 2013, the United Nations condemned Falk’s comments which blamed the Boston terrorist attack on “the American global domination project” and “Tel Aviv.”

In 2014, UN Watch detailed Falk’s blog filled with crude antisemitic comments by contributors whom he defends and praises, such as – 

  • “The Protocols [of the Elders of Zion] is an uncannily accurate description of what is happening right now.”

  • “The world is beginning to understand just how toxic Jewish religious practice and cultural indoctrination really is.”

  • “Judaism is a pyramid scheme of social shaming leading to great accumulation of wealth by those at the apex.”

In the summer of 2017, the Jerusalem Post discovered Falk was part of an antisemitic Facebook group called ‘Shoah (Palestinian Holocaust)’ whose aim was to end the “Zio-Nazi oppression” and “environmental destruction of Palestine”. The group was found to often share antisemitic imagery depicting global Jewry and Israel as one in the same..

Falk is also a proponent of terrorism against the Jewish state; in fact his promotion of the terror group Hamas was so extreme that the Palestinian Authority sought to expel him from the United Nations.

As a self-hating Jew, Richard Falk is currently doing his best to continue espousing hatred toward the Jewish people whenever possible.

In an attempt to undermine and discredit the U.S. Department of State approved International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism, Richard Falk and other useful Jewish idiots have recently endorsed and pushed for the adoption of the ‘Jerusalem Declaration on Antisemitism’ which carves out a space for like minded antisemites to advocate for the elimination of the Jewish state without being accused of Jew hatred. 

For example, the comparison of Israeli policies with the Nazi extermination of 6 million Jews is not in and of itself antisemitic, according to this distorted definition. Nor is it antisemitic to call for the erasure of Israel as a Jewish, democratic state. These erroneous claims demonstrate just how much the IHRA definition is needed.

Richard Falk has sanitized and endorsed antisemitism for decades. He is the last person to give any validity to what is and isn’t considered antisemitism.
