Who's a conspiracy crank?

David Aaronovitch in the Times shows us what a neo-con he is and how desperate neo-cons are to attack anyone who criticises Israel. He has a go at Professor Richard Falk, who will work for the UN as a human rights adviser/investigator and who has previously compared Israel to Nazi Germany.

Aaronovitch calls Falk a conspiracy crank and alleges that he won't achieve anything because he has upset Israel.
The implication of this logic is simple. The UN Human Rights Council doesn't give a toss about the human rights of the Palestinians in the sense of wanting them upheld. Its majority is far more interested in using Israel as a stick to beat the US with, or - in the case of Islamic states - as a bogeyman to dampen down domestic discontent.
Interesting conspiracy theory, David. And you don't even know you're doing it.
