In 2008 the United Nations Human Rights Council appointed Richard Falk to a six-year term as a United Nations Special Rapporteur on "the situation of
human rights in the Palestinian territories. Unfortunately he misunderstood what he was supposed to do. Apparently Falk incorrectly assumed that he

Do any of you know of incidents where this happened for criticizing any other government?
