    NEW YORK, (PIC)-- Richard Falk, the UN coordinator of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, has lashed out at the Israeli decision to deport tens of thousands of Palestinian citizens from the West Bank at the pretext their presence there was "illegitimate".

    Falk in a radio statement published on the UN website said that the latest Israeli army decision in the West Bank was in viorlation of the international humanitarian law and human rights.

    He said that such a decision does not respect the rights of residents in occupied lands, who should be protected by the occupying power.

    BOGUS link.

    In fact, there is no Israeli occupation as the West Bank is not sovereign Pallie territory and, thus, cannot be occupied.

    Furthermore, Palestine is wholly sovereign Israeli land under the terms of the binding San Remo Resolution and Palestine Mandate.

    Pallies are the occupiers.

    Thus, you are PWNED, once again, and left with no reputational pts for your lack of credibility.

    Let's see:

    Richard Anderson Falk (born 1930) is an American professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University, writer (the author or co-author of 20 books),[1] speaker, activist on world affairs, and an appointee to two United Nations positions on the Palestinian territories.

    Falk described his family background as "assimilationist Jewish with a virtual denial of even the ethnic side of Jewishness,"[2] and more recently described himself as "an American Jew".[3]

    Falk obtained a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, a Bachelor of Laws from Yale University, and a Doctor of Laws (SJD) from Harvard University. He is Albert G. Milbank Professor of International Law and Practice, Emeritus at Princeton University, and was Visiting Distinguished Professor in Global and International Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara (2001–04). He retired from teaching in 2001.[4][5]

    Falk has published a number of books and essays analyzing the legality of the Vietnam War and other military operations. With regard to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, he has written that it is "inescapable that an objective observer would reach the conclusion that this Iraq war is a war of aggression, and as such, that it amounts to a Crime against Peace of the sort for which surviving German leaders were indicted, prosecuted and punished at the Nuremberg trials conducted shortly after the Second World War."[6]

    Hmmmm, who to believe, who to believe?

    Falk has a history of anti-Israel bias and lacks credibility.

    Thus, he is a BOGUS source.

    No reputational pts for you today. Sorry.

    Falk only has opinions and his are the opinions of a 9/11 conspiracist.

    Thus, you are PWNED, again, Mr. No Reputational Points.

    Irrelevant. 9/11 has never been investigated. That is all they ask.

    The comments section of your article sheds further light on the issue, particularly the compelling analysis offered by Patrick S. O'Donnell.

    Of course Zionists will conclude that any opinion finding their behavior illegal or immoral or objectionable in any way is "biased."
