UNESCO claims the cartoon constitutes incitement and that this ‘endangers the lives of unarmed diplomats’. A few months ago Richard Falk, UN’s special rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories, posted on his private blog (since then this was removed) a cartoon of a dog with a kippah urinating on a statue of Lady Justice. UN human rights chief Navi Pillay commented on this ‘“I utterly deplore and condemn anti- Semitism, as I do any form of incitement to hatred and racial discrimination.”, and Falk (under pressure) apologized (but admits he doesn’t feel there was anything wrong with the cartoon), Falk is still in his job. So, a cartoon by an Israeli endangers the lives of ‘unarmed’ diplomats but a cartoon by their own anti-Semite does not endanger the lives of Israelis and Americans. Go figure.
