Richard Falk's Website  


Even though Israel has been steadily and illegally consuming most of Palestine for decades, the people of Gaza have been trapped in an open air prison camp (or reservation) where their movements and lives are restricted. This is an international humanitarian crisis and we call for an end to the illegal blockade and bombing of civilians who have no place to flee.

This is not about Arab/Jew, this is about human rights and peace. 



The International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, which followed World War II, called the waging of aggressive war "essentially an evil thing...to initiate a war of aggression...is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.

    1. If you don't have the courage to identify yourself, then this is the last time I will post such anonymous comments.

  2. Thanks for interviewing Richard Falk, Cindy. What a contrast it is, listening to him speak, and answering your questions with clear, knowledgeable answers than the slanted, pro-Zionist American cheerleaders for AIPAC and the carefully controlled print and television mainstream media outlets.

    Anonymous is just a shill for something. This "alleged God" doesn't bless anything, as he/she (?) probably knows. As far as the "mighty IDF" is concerned, they're just the ultimate bullies of the world...maybe in a dead heat for first place with the US armed forces.

    Whatever, the corrupt, morally bankrupt US Congress and the White House crime boss gave Israel the "green light" to initiate the Palestinian Holocaust.

    We reap what we have sown, for good or bad.The world has learned nothing, since World War Two.
