Remember Durban 1? For those who can’t recall, the UN’s World Conference against Racism turned into an ugly anti-Israel hate fest. But since it’s a UN sponsered event and that the UN has been taken over by the Islamic states, that was to be expected right?
Nearly seven years ago, the “UN World Conference against Racism” took place in Durban (South Africa). This event mutated into an outright tribunal against Israel and its right to exist and into an apologia for unfree states and dictatorships. The UN is now planning to organize a “Durban Review Conference” in April 2009 in Geneva. French novelist and essayist Pascal Bruckner has recently called to boycott it.
We, the undersigned – journalists, writers, scientists and artists – join Bruckner’s appeal. We call the states of the European Union, and especially Germany, to boycott the “Durban 2” conference and to push forward a comprehensive reform of the United Nation’s Human Rights Council. Everyone who also wants to sign the following petition is invited sincerely.
