Amidst the continuing issue of UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn's antisemitism and support for extremists, The Sun focused on his paying tribute to disgraced former UN official Richard Falk.
Falk was formerly a UN special rapporteur. He has been repeatedly called out for his antisemitism and extreme anti-Israel comments.
"Highlights" of Falk's tenure at the UN included blaming the Boston Marathon bombing on "American global domination," "Tel Aviv" trying to ban a pro-Israel human rights watchdog group UN Watch from attending UNHRC sessions, and publishing antisemitic cartoons and articles on his blog. US officials routinely and repeatedly called for Falk to resign.
UN Watch documents the open antisemitism on Falk's blog here.
Unfortunately, The Sun attempted to add some information to a Falk quote and failed. We tweeted The Sun to alert it to its erroneous claim that Tel Aviv is Israel's capital.
As a result, the reference was removed shortly after. Thank you to The Sun for taking prompt action.
