Gemany to join boycotting countries of “Durban 3”

September 3, 2011

Yesterday, Germany’s Foreign Minister, Guido Westerwelle, has announced that Germany would not be attending the third Durban Conference against world racism. With that, Germany joins countries like Italy, The Netherlands, The Czech Republic, Canada and more. It should be noted that while many western countries did attend the second Durban Conference in France in 2009, many of them did so in an attempt to try and prevent the outcome and many have walked out during Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in which he proceeded to deny the holocaust. In his statement, Westerwelle said that Germany cannot be sure that once again the Durban Conference will be a vessel for antisemitic statements.

What is the Durban Conference Against World Racism?

This September, New York will not only be noting 10 years in the memory of the 9/11 terror attack against the World Trade Center, but will also be “celebrating” 10 years to the first Durban Conference… by having the third Durban Conference take place in New York itself.

On September 22nd, 2011, world leaders who are attending the General Assembly of the UN, will take part in the conference.

The first conference, while supposed to have been about real concerns towards world racism and while focusing on the issue of past slavery of black people by Western countries, was quickly taken over by anti-Israel countries and NGOs and quickly turns into a political anti-Israeli conference, disregarding all racism throughout the world.

Lebanon prevented a condemenation of Thursday’s terror attack

August 20, 2011

And the hits just keep on coming. While the escalation in Israel’s south is still in progress due to the henious terror attack, the Arab / Muslim world once again uses it’s abounding power and strength in it’s ongoing war against Israel.

Lebanon is now acting as the current representative of the Arab world in the United Nations’ Security Council (The Arab world always has a country, in rotation, representing it in the Security Council). Last night, as the Security Council tried to pass a condemnation resolution to this terror attack, Lebanon blocked it – According to the Security Council’s rules all 15 members must sign off on a resolution for it to pass. Lebanon blocked it.

According to the deputy U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Rosemary Discarlo, the condemnation message was a standard message the Security Council used in every terror attack worldwide and the Security Council has used this text many times before.

This was not about the context of the condemnation message, it was about condemning the death of Israel is at all.

Israel’s Ambassador to the UN, Ron Prospor, said in response that this is yet another sad remainder that often the UN is “deaf and blind” when it comes to terror being committed against Israeli citizens.

This is once again a demonstration as to how the UN is motivated by self-interest and is not interested in promoting peace, human rights and justice. It took the Security Council less than 24 hours, without the facts even being cleared up, to adopt Turkey’s decision to condemn Israel for the flotilla incident in May 2010. It took over FOUR months for the Security Council to condemn Syria’s Bashar Assad for the slaughtering of his opposers. To this day, It has not condemned North Korea for its’ offensive against South Korea (that happened on November 23rd, 2010).

I’m sure that if a terror attack against Lebanese citizens would take place, they would demand a condemnation. Well, they probably won’t, seeing as Lebanon is one the biggest terror hubs in the area with Iranian-backed Hezbollah having its’ army, stronger than Lebanon’s Western-backed army, that managed to dissolve the Lebanon government of Saar Hariri (As Israeli Ambassador, Ron Prospor said, Lebanon is “a state controlled by a terrorist organization”). The Arab world never took his inner battles outside. But when Israel was cutting a tree on its’ side of the border and a Lebanese soldier opened fire, which resulted in casualties on both sides, they demanded a Security Council condemnation.

This is yet again an example of hypocrisy and how the majority of power in this world is in the world hands (feel free to once again take a look at freedomhouse.org‘s map of the unfree majority of this world).
