A United Nations human rights expert investigating Israel’s treatment of Palestinians expressed regret on Monday for posting an anti-Semitic cartoon on his blog, but rejected calls to resign his role saying critics were using a “careless” mistake to attack him.

US academic Richard Falk said he didn’t spot what he called “the anti-Semitic connotations” when he published a caricature showing a dog wearing a Jewish skullcap and an American flag eating human bones while urinating on a statue representing justice.

Oh, well, sure.  Who can be expected to see the anti-semetic connotation of something like that?

Shalom
