NY Times says Griffin Co-Author Richard Falk Denied Israel Entry

In David Ray Griffin's, "9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out, VOL. I", Richard Falk wrote Chapter 8, "Global Ambitions and Geopolitical Wars: The Domestic Challenge".

The NY Times article cites Israel's concern about Falk's positions on Palestinian oppression and the need for "more serious examination of the conspiracy theories surrounding the Sept. 11 attacks", quoting his opinion that, “only willful ignorance can maintain that the 9/11 narrative should be treated as a closed book.”

JERUSALEM — Israeli authorities on Monday expelled Richard Falk, a United Nations investigator of human rights in the Palestinian territories, saying he was unwelcome because of what the government has regarded as his hostile position toward Israel.
