The Complete Censored ESCWA Report: “Israel Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid”By Richard Falk and Virginia TilleyGlobal Research, March 19, 2017ESCWARegion: Middle East & North AfricaTheme: Crimes against Humanity, Law and Justice, United NationsIn-depth Report: PALESTINE The decision by the UN Secretary General to remove this report points to the criminalization of the United Nations. Censorship is applied by the UN body on the explicit instructions of the US government, which alongside Israel is responsible for extensive war crimes against the people of the Middle East. U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley accuses the UN of propagating anti-Israeli propaganda pointing to Prof. Richard Falk as a conspiracy theorist. (M. Ch. GR Editor) ”The United States is outraged by the [ESCWA] report … That such anti-Israel propaganda would come from a body whose membership nearly universally does not recognize Israel is unsurprising. That it was drafted by Richard Falk, a man who has repeatedly made biased and deeply offensive comments about Israel and espoused ridiculous conspiracy theories, including about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, is equally unsurprising. The United Nations Secretariat was right to distance itself from this report, but it must go further and withdraw the report altogether. The United States stands with our ally Israel and will continue to oppose biased and anti-Israel actions across the UN system and around the world.The complete censored ESCWA report by Richard Falk and Virginia TilleyCopied this from a short book on the UN. The title is:We the peoples: the promise of the United Nations“We the peoples of the United Nations,” begins the United Nations Charter. It goes on to list four principal aims for global organization. First, the UN was to safeguard peace and security in order “to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war.” Second, it was “to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights.” Third, the UN was to uphold respect for international law. And fourth, the new organization pledged “to promote social progress and better standards of life.” In the summer of 1945, the founders of the United Nations thus vowed to make the world a better place.Copied from page one, first paragraph taken from the book The United Nations by Jussi M. HanhimakiObviously those fine principles no longer apply.
