It's about time

Israel is finally responding to the pernicious and incessant bias against it by the United Nations Human Rights Commission and its new investigator Richard Falk, by barring him from the country: http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2008/04/08/africa/ME-GEN-Israel-UN-Barred.php. Falk has compared Israel to Nazi Germany, and he has stood by those comments in recent interviews. Israel for some reason is concerned about his ability to be impartial. Really? I can't imagine that a U.N. hack would ever be anything less than completely impartial when it comes to Israel.......................

That is good that Israel is preventing him from coming inside the country, hopefully they get the message.

The mandate currently allows him to monitor only human rights violations by Israel in the Palestinian territories.

This is very unfortunate. They can't even consider that the Palestinians might be responsible for violence.
