Germans racists after all

I don’t get it. This was a UN conference, Germany. How could you, gulp, boycott today’s anti-racism forum and then urge those attending it to “stand up for the effective fight against racism and ethnic discrimination” at the same time?

 

Can't wait to give my big speech!

 

What ever happened to international cooperation and consensus and community? The UN would never let another one of its shining examples of international unity be, well, hijacked by hate-filled demagogues and misused as a platform to repeat attacks on Israel and deny the Holocaust, now would it? Not like it did during its first conference on racism in Durban eight years ago which was marred by anti-Semitic comments from some less-than-well-meaning NGOs. It’s just not that kind of a place.

 

No, Germany. By making this fateful decision you have revealed yourself to be what you really and truly are; a country that can actually make the right decision from time to time, although this probably hurts like hell and you’ll be doing a lot of tooth grinding over it for a while (making right decisions can be like that). Good job and keep up the good work.

 

„Irans Präsident Mahmud Ahmadinedschad hat Israel einem Fernsehbericht zufolge kurz vor Beginn der Anti-Rassismus-Konferenz als „Fahnenträger des Rassismus“ bezeichnet.“
