UN Human Rights Council’s Palestine monitor Richard Falk has drawn connections between the recent Boston Marathon bombing and US President Barack Obama's compliance with the State of Israel.

In a journal entry in the Foreign Policy Journal entitled A Commentary on the Marathon Murders, Falkner, a self-proclaimed advocate for 9/11 conspiracy theories, asks when America will awaken from its "geopolitical fantasy," refering to the aftermath of the attack as a "darkly glamorized" scene, which he implied was largely due to Obama's recent trip to Israel.

"As long as Tel Aviv has the compliant ear of the American political establishment, those who wish for peace and justice in the world should not rest easy,” he wrote.

In his essay, Falk compares the marathon bombing to the 2001 destruction of the Twin Towers in New York City, saying that both incidents have led to America embracing "Islamophobic falsehoods."
