Czechs pull out of anti-Semitic UN conference

Anne Bayefsky reports at the Weekly Standard that the Czech Republic has pulled out of Durban III, the blatantly anti-Semitic conference that supposedly discusses racism but never quite gets past bashing Israel and the Jews.

On Friday, the Czech Republic became the latest country to pull out of the upcoming U.N. "anti-racism" extravaganza known as Durban III. Canada, Israel, and the United States have already given thumbs down to the event, which the U.N. is bringing to U.S. shores on September 22, 2011. While Americans will be mourning the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the United Nations in New York will be "commemorating" the 10th anniversary of the first Durban conference - an outpouring of intolerance and xenophobia.

The Czech Republic's move comes three days after U.N. negotiators quietly circulated a draft of the final declaration that will be adopted at the conclusion of Durban III. Although the writing had been on the wall for a very long time, the alarm bells could no longer be ignored. The "political declaration" focuses particularly on what it calls "victims of racism." And the Durban Declaration emanating from South Africa names only one state victimizer - Israel. The Palestinian people are listed as victims of racism.

Why any civilized country would participate in this charade is a mystery.
