Boycott Durban III

No support in Berlin for United Nations event because "our partner Israel is denounced as an apartheid state."

Reminders for why we didn't like Durban I:

It turned into an Israel hate-fest, where ridiculous comparisons were made between Israel's defensive measures against terrorists and Apartheid. (I will repeat again and again: Israel has nothing in common with Apartheid South Africa)

Then there was Durban II:

Many countries boycotted it, and others left the auditorium when notorious Israel bashers and Holocaust deniers were given a pulpit.

Durban II is the place where Ahmadinejad was given an audience to speak to, while Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel was verbally harassed with "Zion-nazi" slurs.

Highlight of the conference: The clowns from the UEJF making a point during Mad Moody's speech.

Now, there's Durban III coming up in New York, on the 21st of September 2011. Just around the time when the Palestinian Statehood bid will be voted on... Coincidence?

I'm counting on "good" countries to boycott it, and for organizations like StandWithUs and UN Watch to be present, denounce, and make a general mockery of this circus.
