Quote of the Day

From Richard Falk, U.N. Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories:

"At present, we have a global law that does not treat equals equally; the weak are held accountable, while the strong enjoy impunity. This represents law without justice, inviting charges of hypocrisy and double standards. My work as a scholar and engaged citizen has been dedicated to advancing the cause of global justice based on a legal order that learns to treat equals equally whether states or individuals."

Falk was denied entry into the OPT, by Israel, earlier this month.
