US Boycotts "UN Conference On Racism" - Leftist Groups Who Attacked Bush For The Same Are Thus Far Silent In Their Attacks Upon Obama

Obama Administration To Boycott Durban II

This is a blog dedicated to YOU.....the Barack Obama supporter.

My goal is to inspect your action in the wake of Barack Obama's actions. When President Obama does something that you spat on Bush for doing - I expect you to SPIT just the same.

Be we all know the deal right?

This conference on racism is very important to the leftists in America. After all of the rukus of 7 years ago or so - you all just knew that a Democrat regime running the nation and a Black president that they would join in with the Palestinians and attack the "racist Zionists" (your word).

Jewish groups have joined in praising the US decision to withdraw from a UN-sponsored conference on racism, and say they hope that European countries will follow suit. Widely called "Durban II," the conference is scheduled for April in Geneva.

In a statement issued by the Anti-Defamation League, its national chairman, Glen S. Lewy, said, "We applaud the administration for refusing to participate in a process that would in any way brand Israel as a racist country."

Moishe Smith, president of B'nai B'rith International, said that while the group was "never pleased to walk away from international discussions in critical areas like racism, we credit the Obama administration for its good faith effort."

US President Barack Obama was originally inclined to participate in the World Conference Against Racism, set to open on April 20, and even sent a delegation to Geneva for the preparations. But the US rescinded its involvement when the delegation determined that the conference's proposed draft resolutions would be blatantly anti-Israel and were unable to change the content.

"A conference based on this text would be a missed opportunity to speak clearly about the persistent problem of racism," said Robert Wood, the State Department's spokesman.

The first Durban conference in 2001 was attended by the US and Israel, and both withdrew after just a few days due to the virulently anti-Israel and even anti-Semitic nature of much of its content. Critics have long believed that Durban II would be even worse.
