UN human rights chief Navi Pillay commented Thursday on the furor that has erupted around an anti-Semitic cartoon posted by UN special rapporteur Richard Falk on his blog on June 29.

Pillay - the United Nations High Commissioner For Human Rights - stated in a letter to UN Watch, the organization which first brought the issue to public attention, that the cartoon was indeed anti-Semitic and added, “I utterly deplore and condemn anti-Semitism, as I do any form of incitement to hatred and racial discrimination.”
