TODAY, April 21, is YOM HASHOAH – Holocaust Remembrance Day – watch in Israel
2nd UN Global “Anti-Racism” Conference, Durban II – You won’t believe this… led by leading human rights violaters, Libya, Cuba, Russia, Iran, and others, The UN’s idea of an anti-racism conference
Guest speaker Iran’s President Ahmadinejad. Let me inform those readers who may have been camped out in the wilderness for the last 2 years: This man was invited to speak at NY Columbia University, where he “taught” students what he has since said NUMEROUS times, his agenda is clear: TRANSCRIPT
1. There was NO holocaust, it was hoax – Here’s the hoax, watch VIDEO-if you dare!
2. Israel has NO RIGHT to exist, and MUST be wiped off the face of the map… essentially what every Islamic country believes, and indeed, Israel is NOT on the maps in textbooks in Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, etc, etc, etc.
UN Watch, Professor Anne Bayefsky’s Address to conference
And it’s not just citizens of Israel under the gun here. The Christian religion’s right to exist is also implied, because we believe the Old Testament is the inspired word of the God we worship. Israel, and her right to exist, are addressed REPEATEDLY by our God. So I guess we should be stripped naked outdoors and lined up for the “showers”, or cooked in ovens, too, while our loved ones dig the mass graves and transport the emaciated bodies of weak, sick, old, women, children, and babies, until the time they can’t work, and are sent to shower, too. OK, I’m ready, come take me!!! For those “progressive” christians out there… you really shouldn’t call yourself a follower of Christ, if you deny Israel’s right to exist.
Canada, Israel, Italy, the United States, the Netherlands, Australia, Germany, New Zealand and reportedly Sweden and Poland. This seriously delegitimizes the Durban process and the “Durban Strategy” of demonizing and isolating Israel internationally.
The intensive campaigns by NGOs such as Human Rights Watch (HRW) and Amnesty International to press the US, Canada and other democracies to participate in this discredited UN framework have failed. The appearance of Iranian leader Ahmadinejad today will further highlight the destructive impact of the Durban process.

Who didn’t decide not to go? Well, Great Britain is a biggie. Gordon Brown’s Cowardly Decision Not To Boycott
Now today we read Iran’s “Ima Dirty Coward” gave such an incidiary speech, that the REST of the EU had to walk out. Hmmm, would that be those who don’t have a brain between their ears, or who just returned from 20 years on another planet?????
Or, to be fair, there might be other reasons, read one here
And let’s not forget, the US blacks dismayed by Obama stance on racism talks
Oh, and let’s not leave out what the Green Party thinks about cooking human children in ovens! (but never a chicken, oh no!)
The UN is now no more than an expensive, useless, Utopianist talking shop for the most bizarre, backward and repressive regimes on the face of the Earth.

And what about the U.S. President? Well, credit for refusing to go, and having the US boycott. But we must wonder, was that for some other reason? Has he condemned Iran or Ahmadinejad for his statements? No! Is he even well-versed in the topic, or does he care? Read: Ed Morrissey on Obamateurism.
How about the role of US, Britain, and other western nations in this atrocity, were they blameless? Hardly. Ever heard of the Evian Conference? It was attended by many, and committed to do nothing to help, long before the systematic Nazi killing camps were built. You can read it, annotated, on wikipedia. Some excerpts:
The 1935 Nuremberg Laws made German Jews, already persecuted, stateless refugees in their own country. By 1938, some 150,000 out of about 600,000 German Jews had fled Germany, mostly to Palestine, but British immigration quotas prevented many from emigrating. In March 1938, Hitler annexed Austria and made the 200,000 Jews of Austria stateless refugees. In September 1938 Britain granted Hitler the right to occupy the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia, and in March 1939 Hitler occupied the remainder of the country. This made a further 200,000 Jews stateless.
In 1939 the British closed Palestine to further Jewish migration, and Jewish refugees could no longer find countries willing to admit them.
The Évian Conference was convened at the initiative of US President Franklin D. Roosevelt in July 1938 to discuss the problem of Jewish refugees. For nine days, from July 6 to July 15, delegates from thirty-two countries met at Évian-les-Bains, France. Twenty-four voluntary organizations also attended, as observers, many of whom presented plans orally and in writing. The fact that the conference did not pass a resolution condemning the German treatment of Jews was widely used in Nazi propaganda. The lack of action further emboldened Hitler in his assault on European Jewry….
In her autobiography My Life (1975), Golda Meir described her outrage being in “the ludicrous capacity of the [Jewish] observer from Palestine, not even seated with the delegates, although the refugees under discussion were my own people….”
