UN Racism Rides Again -- Durban II

You remember that UN “anti-racism” conference in September, 2001, in Durban, South Africa? Hijacked by the Organization of the Islamic Conference, it turned into a frenzy of anti-Israel, anti-America activity — elbowed abruptly out of the news about three days later by the like-minded Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S.

Evidently the hijackers of the Durban conference felt they deserved a lot more time in the spotlight, and the UN agrees, because now they are preparing to do it all over again, quite likely on millions worth of your taxpayer UN-dues dollars, in 2009.

This grotesque UN farce has nothing to do with being anti-racist, and everything to do with that staple UN habit of being anti-Israel, anti-American and pro-tyranny — with a special tilt toward the Islamo-fascist-spawning tyrannies of the Middle East. Preparations are already well underway, with Libya presiding, and such pillars of UN “human rights” policy as Cuba, Pakistan and Iran preparing to vet the “anti-racist” measures of other states. Read all about it, in Anne Bayefsky’s Durban Watch reports on the Durban II planning shindig in Geneva.
