The Ban Ki-Moon Hoax.....

I wonder how many sites were taken in by this...
A document purporting to be an address by Ban Ki-Moon, secretary general of the UN, delivered to the UN General Assembly on May 11, 2009 “on the 60th Anniversary of Israel’s Admission,” and widely circulated on the Internet, is a deliberate forgery, said the newly created International Commission for Jewish Legal Affairs.
Brenden Varma from the UN Press Office confirmed to representatives of the commission that the perpetrators illegally copied the heading of the web site of the UN News Centre, so that the address would appear to be an official document of the United Nations.

Dr. Haim Katz, chair of the International Commission for Jewish Legal Affairs, newly established in cooperation with the B’nai B’rith World Center to help combat efforts to delegitimize the state of Israel, called upon the secretary general to immediately disassociate himself from this forged document, to condemn the dissemination of false and inflammatory information about Israel or any other member state, to commence an investigation to identify the perpetrators, and to pursue all available legal means to do so.

Dr. Katz indicated that the fake address to the General Assembly contained a complete distortion of the history of the UN resolution of 1947, which led to the creation of Israel and a pledge by the secretary general to call a special session of the General Assembly “at the earliest possible time to strip Israel of its membership.”

In his letter to the secretary general, Dr. Katz stated, “With the current climate of anti-Israel sentiment, undoubtedly hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people will accept this forgery at face value. If it is not denied promptly and publicly, this false document, which clearly has the potential for violence, can produce dire consequences in world opinion. The integrity of the United Nations will be damaged as well.”

I discovered this as a hoax on day one (May 11th, 2009) and brought it to the attention of the Israeli Consulate in Toronto, urging them to take action against the perpetrators. It looks like something legal is actually going to be done about Greg Felton and his anti-Semitic friends. (To give you an idea that this is not just anti-Israeli, one of the sites perpetuating this hoax is nazi.org!) Kol ha-Kavod to the newly created International Commission for Jewish Legal Affairs. May they go from strength to strength.

Yeah, right!

This was a satire, not a hoax, despite what you zionists allege. There will be no legal action. The Lobby is too afraid.

Thanks for the publicity:
