Bayefsky Reveals the Madness of the UN Human Rights Council, in Tweets

This article by Anne Bayefsky originally appeared on 

On Monday morning, Anne Bayefsky was one of the few voices to oppose the anti-Israel madness of the execrable Richard Falk, the 9/11 Truther who is a Special Rapporteur at the UN Human Rights Council. The Human Rights Council, incidentally, is something the U.S. government chose to ignore until President Barack Obama decided to give it legitimacy--a policy both Susan Rice and Samantha Power fully support.

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"! #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?
