UN investigator regrets anti-Semitic cartoon

A U.N. human rights investigator says he regrets posting an anti-Semitic cartoon on his blog but has rejected calls to resign his role investigating Israel's treatment of Palestinians.
U.S. academic Richard Falk says publishing the cartoon showing a dog wearing a Jewish skullcap and an American flag eating human bones while urinating on a statue representing justice "was a mistake and I regretted it."
The 80-year-old Falk says he didn't initially see what he termed "the anti-Semitic connotations" in the picture.
Falk told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Monday that the cartoon issue was being used by his critics as a pretext to call for him to resign or be fired from the unpaid post.
