‘Apartheid’ Israel, Islamophobia on the Agenda for U.N. Racism Meeting

CNSNews.com -

Seven years after the United States and Israel withdrew in protest from a United Nations racism gathering, the drafters of the primary document for a follow-up conference next spring have included sentiments that prompted the earlier walkout.

Most glaringly, the draft text declares that Israeli policies and practices in territories claimed by the Palestinians constitute “a new kind of apartheid, a crime against humanity [and] a form of genocide.”

Critics are urging governments to boycott next April's UN conference on racism in Geneva, dubbed "Durban II."


Million to one odds (or more) that Obama won't support such a boycott. What about the timing of this announcement? Barack just won the election and this is back on the agenda. Do ya' think the drafters smell success this time around with a new "ruler" (Obama) at the helm? - HH
