Richard Falk responds to the Lobby's vilification here.
Elizabeth Woodworth asks "Why the Fuss?" here.
Veterans Today says Richard Falk Is Right on 9/11.
"UN Watch," like "Campus Watch," is a cowardly Zionist terror group.
Campus Watch is tasked with terrorizing the academic community, especially professors who teach anything related to Middle Eastern Studies, in order to frighten off would-be critics of Israel.
U.N. Watch is tasked with terrorizing the diplomatic community, especially UN officials, in order to frighten off would-be critics of Israel. Like Campus Watch, it may be assumed to be a spin-off of the Mossad's psychological warfare division.
This week UN Watch has gone after one of my heroes: Princeton University professor emeritus Richard Falk, Special UN Human Rights Rapporteur for the Palestinian Territories. They are unhappy that Richard Falk has spoken out against the official version of 9/11, and in favor of a new investigation.
Unsurprisingly, the cowards at UN Watch have banned comments supporting Dr. Falk. Below is a comment I left shortly after the anti-Falk smear attempt was published.

The comment disappeared within a few hours. The same thing has happened to comments left by Professor Anthony Hall of the University of Lethbridge, 9/11 whistleblower Kevin Ryan, and many others. Below are the kind of comments that the cowardly terror-mongers at U.N. Watch are afraid to post.

It is UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who has discredited himself with his reactionary and ill-informed response to the interventions of Dr. Falk on the state of scholarly controversies concerning the contested events of 9/11. Certainly Professor David Ray Griffin's ten books on the subject are key works crucial to describing the scholarly landscape of the ongoing research concerning 9/11.
Until Mr. Ban Ki-moon has done his homework on the contested interpretations of what did or did not happen on 9/11 he should restrain himself from criticizing UN staff like Dr. Falk. Dr. Falk is a learned academic who demonstrates his determination to respect human rights by doing the necessary homework to make informed observations and conclusions about the contested events of 9/11.
By not keeping himself up-to-date on the scholarship of 9/11, Mr. Ban Ki-moon is unfortunately part of the constituency that denigrates all Arabs and Muslims who have been smeared collectively by those who disseminate an unsupported interpretation of what happened on the fateful day.
We expect much better from the figurehead of the UN, an institution cheapened and demeaned by the intervention of the Secretary-General into an area on which he obviously has not been properly briefed. Decency requires that the UN Secretary-General favor evidence over the propaganda effects of a toxic public mythology that perpetuates the ruthlessness of the illegal 9/11 Wars.

If Professor Falk were to claim a cover-up, that would be a serious charge indeed, requiring much evidence. You say, however, that he claimed an "apparent cover-up." What evidence do we have for such a charge? As a former Site Manager for Underwriters Laboratories (UL), I can confirm that the investigation conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and UL, into the events at the WTC on 9/11/01, had all the characteristics of a cover-up.
The tests performed by NIST were designed in a deceptive manner, and the results of those tests were either downplayed or ignored in the creation of the report. All evidence contrary to NIST's pre-determined conclusions of failure by fire (e.g. evidence for explosives) was ignored throughout the seven year investigation. People like myself, who dared to speak out about this completely non-scientific approach, lost their jobs as they called for honesty in the investigation.
Because there is substantial evidence pointing to a cover-up, Professor Falk should be commended for saying so, not derided with emotionally-charged but meaningless criticisms.

To: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Princeton's Dept. of Politics Chair Prof. Milner and US Senator Mark Dayton
Mr. Ki-moon, I am a student at the Univ. of Toronto and I have carefully examined your sudden reaction to Prof. Falk's comments regarding 9/11. You were very quick in saying that his statement that 9/11 is a cover-up is offensive and he should be removed from the UN. However Sir, if you actually bother to read some of the statements by US officials such as Senator Dayton (provided below), you will see that Prof. Falk is just stating facts that are far from new.
I am confident that Princeton University will not be intimidated or pressured by your misinformed statements and I hope Princeton supports their own professor. True academics are concerned with facts and truths whereas you Sir are concerned about how "offensive" it appears.

Senator Mark Dayton said:
NORAD "lied to the American people, they lied to Congress and they lied to your 9/11 commission to create a false impression of competence, communication and protection of the American people."
