Richard Falk slams Egyptian massacre

World Bulletin / News Desk

The United Nations human rights investigator for the Palestinian territories, Richard Falk, has slammed Egyptian junta's massacre. 

To help shed light on the current Egypt crisis, Al Jazeera canvassed opinions from several leading Middle East experts to help analyse recent developments.

One of the experts, UN investigator Falk, said, "The appointment of 19 generals as the governors of Egypt's provinces, the resignation of Mohamed ElBaradei (the embodiment of liberal secularism), the killing of hundreds more unarmed Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators, as well as the declaration of a state of emergency, makes Western diplomatic calls for compromise, inclusion, and mutual restraint irrelevant, and pathetic. The only political act that would have any moral credibility at this moment is an unconditional condemnation of the criminal onslaught that General el-Sisi has launched against the Egyptian people, made credible by being coupled with a refusal to accept any longer its claims of legitimacy."
