    He has marginalized himself by being being an advocate, a champion of the Palestinian people and by not being a neutral arbiter of the facts. As others have pointed out, in Falks world, Israel is all bad and Pals are all good. Come on, get real. That is entirely stupid and he has become the author of his own increasing misfortune. His folly has come home to roost and, really, both Pals and Israelis are victims of his self absorption. Surely, a man of integrity would acknowledge that his work hasn't produced any benefit for the Pals and increasingly, now that he has alienated Europe, the head of the U.N., and the U.S., its not getting better. He should also give considerable thought to what another poster pointed out. Why, exactly, given the horrors that unforld in many parts of the world, not the least of which has been unforlding for years in the Muslim world, is there an enoy for Pal territories and nowhere else? Perhaps he can put his energy to work in Syria where 100,000 people have been butchered.
