The countries boycotting Durban 3 Conference

Today, as the 66th United Nations General Assembly is gaining momentum, and with the shadow of the Palestinian unilateral move away from peace , the third Durban Conference takes place in New York. Originally a conference aimed to combat world racism, Durban has become nothing more than another global event designated to the de-legitimization campaign against Israel. A conference that has no place for facts or truths, but promotes hate, racism, antisemitism, the denial of the holocaust and much more.

Today, at an event marking more than anything the extreme countries taking part in it, many countries around the west side of the world took an important powerful stand to boycott the conference. These countries are:

  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • France
  • Germany
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • New Zealand
  • Austria
  • Italy
  • Bulgaria
  • The Czech Republic
  • The Netherlands
  • Poland

And of course Israel itself. Go here to read more about my account on the so-called “anti-racism” conference.

By the way, about 25 of NGOs, led by UN WATCH organization, are holding today a counter-summit in New York called  We Have a Dream: Global Summit Against Discrimination and Prosecution. It’s goal is to present an alternative to bias UN bodies and talk about real issues of racism and oppose the participation of countries such as China, Cuba, Iran, Saudi Arabia and more in the UN human rights various forums. It’s intent into bring awareness to the flawed UN system which fails to truly regulates human rights violation around the world.

Another summit Perils of Global Intolerance will take place today in New York, led by Holocaust survivor and Noble peace prize winner Elie Wiesel, is also meant to serve as a counter to Durban 3 and address UN hypocrisy and the ways in which Durban “legitimizes hate speech on a global scale”. Also, StandWithUs is holding a demonstration against the event as well.
