I just learned that my former colleague and longtime friend, Richard Falk, has been pushed out of Human Rights Watch (HRW). Here’s how it went down, as I understand it: Kenneth Roth of HRW received a letter from Hillel Neuer, the Executive Director of an organization called UN Watch, dated December 17th, attacking Richard as a “racist and enemy of human rights,” and, of course, an anti-Semite1 (since – surprise! – UN Watch is an offshoot of the neocon American Jewish Committee and part of the uber-Zionist watchdog network).

The death of a close family member, compounded by the annual holiday confusion, has kept me from posting for the past month. I will return soon to the ongoing chronicle of strangeness and villainy. In the meantime, Happy Holidays to all.
