Bayefsky live-tweeted the event, and her comments are both darkly amusing and revealing about the extent to which the Human Rights Council has become a forum for brutal dictators to taunt Jews--while we watch:
@AnneBayefksy: Just out. #UN "expert" and antisemite #RichardFalk says #Israel "control[s]...the world media"! http://ow.ly/lQkmp #tcot
@AnneBayefksy: At the United Nations Human Rights Council where #Iran speaking on how much it cares about #humanrights. Nobody laughed.
@AnneBayefksy: At UN Human Rights Council, European Union issues call for #Israel to fall on the #UN's sword, for the sake of everybody else.
@AnneBayefksy: #RichardFalk at UN Human Rights Council bashes U.S. for $$ & military cooperation with #Israel. Didn't take him long.
@AnneBayefksy: Guess what. #RichardFalk says not one word about #humanrights violation by a single Arab. Guess #Israel fighting with itself.
@AnneBayefksy: Hezbollah says #RichardFalk has been defamed. Falk becomes victim in inverted human rights world of #UN.
@AnneBayefksy: Human rights violation authority #Venezuela accuses #Israel of "systematic human rights violations."
@AnneBayefksy: #SaudiArabia says #Israel flouts human rights law. From the land of gender apartheid.
@AnneBayefksy: #Syrian representative upset by #Israeli "aggression." And no one flinched. After all, this is the #UN.
@AnneBayefksy: #Iran, whose Pres. openly advocates annihilation of Israel, says Israel guilty of genocide. UN value? Deflect attention from real violators.
@AnneBayefksy: #Cuba says "#Israel's acts are genocidal in nature." #UN "rights" council is the ideal place for hysterical lies.
@AnneBayefksy: #Syria thanks #RichardFalk for describing facts as they are. Send Falk to Syria to investigate facts as they are!
@AnneBayefksy: Responsibility to protect applies to #Palestinians, says #RichardFalk. What do you say, Samantha Power?
