U.N. Leader: U.S. ‘Israel First Ethos’ to Blame for Boston Bombing

richard_falkWhile our nation continues to deal with the aftermath of the Boston Marathon terrorist bombings, which killed three people and wounded more than 260, jihadists and their sympathizers gloat, rationalize or turn the blame for the bombings back onto the United States and Israel. Leftists, who were so quick to accuse Tea Party members or right wingers for the bombings, have remained mostly silent as the truth of the Islamist roots of the bombing suspects became known.

The suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, now dead, and his younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, now in custody, were described by one U.S. government official as “aspiring jihadists.” They were led to their alleged evil act by their understanding of their Muslim faith.  Tellingly, on the Russian social networking site Vkontakte, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev described his world view as “Islam.”

They reportedly turned to Inspire magazine, an English-language online magazine published by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, for bomb-building instructions.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is said to have told investigators that he and his brother were motivated to commit their alleged heinous act by the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He also reportedly told investigators that he and his brother were not connected to any foreign terrorist groups. Whether true or not, they are certainly heroes in jihadist circles.

Members of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah were “dancing in the streets of Gaza, handing out candies to passerbys,” according to the Israeli News Agency. Mohammad al-Chalabi, the head of the Muslim Salafi group, which is a jihadist group headquartered in Jordan, proclaimed that he was “happy to see the horror in America.”

Amidst the outpouring of concern for the victims who lost lives and limbs at the hands of the jihadist bombers, a deluded caller to a PBS radio program, just hours after the bombings, said the bombings were a response to “our drone attacks,” while another caller explained it as “a kind of retribution for torture inflicted by American security forces acting under the authority of the government.”

Richard Falk – a top official of the United Nations Human Rights Council, who quoted these callers in his Foreign Policy Journal article, entitled “A Commentary on the Marathon Murders” – looked at the Boston terrorist attacks as an understandable reaction to the “American global domination project.”

Falk brought Israel into his discussion. “As long as Tel Aviv has the compliant ear of the American political establishment, those who wish for peace and justice in the world should not rest easy,” Falk wrote. And he took verbal shots  at Israel’s “belligerent leader, Bibi Netanyahu” and at President Obama for “succumbing to the Beltway ethos of Israel First.”

Falk went on to write that “America’s military prowess and the abiding confidence of its leaders in hard power diplomacy makes the United States a menace to the world and to itself… We should be asking ourselves at this moment, ‘How many canaries will have to die before we awaken from our geopolitical fantasy of global domination?’”

Falk’s article, by the way, was carried by Al Jazeera.

When asked whether UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon had anything to say about Falk’s outrageous rationalizations for the Boston bombings, a terrorist attack the Secretary General had himself condemned, the spokesperson for Ban Ki-moon noted that the Secretary General did not appoint Mr. Falk.

“Richard Falk speaks independently; he is not a representative of the Secretary-General, so he is free to say what he wants to say. The Secretary-General doesn’t comment on everything everybody says,” the spokesperson said.

Why then did Ban Ki-moon choose to so harshly condemn the anti-Muslim video last fall? After all, he is not responsible for the views of the producer who created the video either. And what of Ban Ki-moon’s declaration, in response to the video and the violence it supposedly sparked, that freedom of expression should only be guaranteed and protected when “used for common justice, common purpose?” He said that using freedom of expression to provoke “cannot be protected in such a way.”  Whether one agrees with this very limited view of freedom of expression or not, it is certainly not consistent with the Secretary General’s reluctance to criticize Falk’s irresponsible comments on the Boston bombings on the grounds that Falk, even though he is associated with the UN, is free to say what he wants to say.

Some commentators would have us believe that the Tsarnaev brothers, who emigrated in 2002 or 2003 from Dagestan, a Russian republic adjoining Chechnya where Islamic jihad flourished, should be pitied as misunderstood immigrant kids having assimilation problems.

In an April 22nd New York Times op-ed article entitled “Immigrant Kids, Adrift,” the authors Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco and Carola Suárez-Orozco wrote:

The alleged involvement of two ethnic Chechen brothers in the deadly attack at the Boston Marathon last week should prompt Americans to reflect on whether we do an adequate job assimilating immigrants who arrive in the United States as children or teenagers… Taking in what Emma Lazarus called the ‘wretched refuse,’ including asylum seekers like the Tsarnaev brothers, without providing a scaffold of support undermines the promise of America.

To the contrary, we should be reflecting on how we can be more vigilant and whether liberalized immigration policies now under consideration in Congress could make this task even more difficult. We should also examine why the FBI dropped the ball in not pressing forward aggressively with a thorough investigation of the older brother, after having received an inquiry from the Russian government. Why didn’t the FBI follow up on his contacts when he visited Russia for several months last year?

The Tsarnaev brothers turned on the country that gave them freedom, protected them from the violence plaguing their place of birth and bestowed on them vast opportunities for a better life, including a good education. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev became a U.S. citizen on September 11, 2012, while his older brother, a permanent U.S. resident, was still waiting to become a citizen when the Boston bombings took place. They had nothing legitimate to complain about regarding how the United States has treated them since their arrival on our shores.

These jihadists bear total responsibility for their evil actions, which were inspired by their evil ideology, not the country that took them in and gave them so much.

      I take exception to your "first-rate education" claim. You are overall dead on the mark, but if you were to substitute the word "indoctrination" for "education", you would have been golden.

    "As long as Tel Aviv has the compliant ear of the American political establishment….". I assume this is a reference to USA military aid to Israel over the years ? However, this aid was ONLY provided when the Soviet Union started to extravegantly arm countries like Syria and Egypt with tanks, military strike aircraft, artillary and other such "humanitarian" assistance back in 1967 (ish).

    Had everyone kept their noses OUT of the region, and left the Islamists and the Israeli's to sort it out themselves, then it would all have been sorted out by now. (Israel would have forced peace terms on the nearby aggressors: after all, no Islamic state can produce bullets without Western assistance, let alone fighter aircraft, whereas Israel had a thriving and innovative weapons industry from a very early stage)

    Falk is an apologist for Hamas.
    Falk refers to Israel as the Zionist Project.
    Its no wonder Falk's articles are on Al Jazeera.
    Even when Hamas killed Palestinians tied to a motorcycle last November for just being rivals of Hamas, Falk cant condemn Hamas.
    Falk on the other hand supports Hamas firing thousands of missiles at Israeli civilians and
    condemns Israel for firing back at Hamas fascists.
    Falk believes Israel should just accept being terrorized from Hamas killers.
    Falk also seems to have a hard time condemning Hamas for firing missiles behind civilians in Gaza at Israeli civilians in Israel.

    Falk always refers Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, the terrorist founder of Hamas as the disabled spiritual founder of Hamas.
    There’s nothing spiritual about a mass murderer.
    Hundreds of Jews who had there limbs torn off by homicide bombers sent by Yassin.
    The PR shots of Yassin in his wheelchair will be remembered by those that don’t see the crippled Jewish bodies of all those that he ordered to be bombed by Hamas.
    Yassin was a mass murderer of the same ilk as Saddam Hussein.
    Saddam never killed a Kurd he just inspired others to do his dirty work.

    Falk last year said, the reliance by Hamas and the various Gaza militias on indiscriminate, even if wildly inaccurate and generally harmless, rockets.

    How about I fire 1000 missiles where you live Falk?
    Do you know the psychological hell Israelis in the South are going through.
    Richard Falk has to understand, Israelis are not going to accept living under Arab terrorism. The South of Israel looked like the Warsaw Ghetto with Israelis hiding in bunkers.
    Since the beginning of 2012 the Palestinians launched 1,200 rockets toward Israeli civilians. These are crimes against humanity.
    There also to terrorize Israelis into leaving Israel so the Palestinians can commit ethnic cleansing against the Jews in Israel as the Palestinians racist leaders call for.

    Hamas stores its missiles near schools and mosques in Gaza. They fire these missiles out of residential areas, so civilians are killed.
    Golda Meir 50 years ago talked about this Arab child abuse.
    Even Falk should be horrified by these Islamo fascists.

    What does Falk think Israel should do when Hamas terrorists are firing hundreds of rockets at Israeli civilians?
    Send Swiss chocolate in return for every rocket.

    Someone told me a funny joke.
    If we sent the Swiss chocolate Falk would accuse Israel with poisoning the Arabs giving them an unhealthy quantity of sugar and damaging their teeth.

    What sickens the Israel haters like Falk is that Jews now can fight back

    In this case it has nothing to do with Israel. The FBI run undercover stings all the time. At some stage if was considered to be a threat his new best friend would have been an undercover from the Bureau. You always hear leaks of FBI, NYPD, DOD, CIA manuals that say most Muslims are sympathic to terror. They only move if someone is going from that view which is not illegal, to actively supporting or conducting. Something happened in Russia that made him want to kill Americans. What who knows, we never will.

    This Falk*n N*zi is a throwback to 1930s Germany, and he's Jewish. The insanity of having this overt anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist as a UN representative dooms the UN forevermore as an evil cesspool of anti-Semitism, with no legitimate voice with regard to the Jewish people or Israel. The UN is a useless piece of trash and a tool of the N*zi/Muslim sympathizers.
    And in keeping with this theme, 170 people were just killed in Nigeria yesterday, but since they're not Jews, we won't hear a peep out of the UN.

Islam is ideology and religion of Muslims supremacy over infidels. That is why they will never be civilized, never will be prosper (despite the fact that they got for granted enormous oil wealth). Invented people "Palestinians" whom USA provide with malty-millions financial aids celebrated 9/11 terror act and now Boston's blowing tragedy as their own victory.
