Statement by Ambassador Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe
U.S. Representative to the Human Rights Council

regarding Commentary by UN Special Rapporteur for the Palestinian Territories Richard Falk
April 24, 2013
The United States completely rejects the provocative and offensive commentary by Mr. Richard Falk, UN Special Rapporteur for the Palestinian Territories, regarding the recent terrorist attack in Boston, Massachusetts.
We have repeatedly called for Mr. Falk’s resignation and expressed our grave concern in a letter to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. Mr. Falk’s continued offensive communications do nothing to advance peace in the Middle East or to further the protection and promotion of human rights.
Mr. Falk’s latest comments demonstrate once again that he is unfit to serve in his role as a UN special rapporteur.
