The unstoppable engine of infamy

The UN is the pivot for the west’s loss of moral compass.

Next week, the United Nations is set to reinforce infamy. In the wings of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York, it is to hold a 20th anniversary summit of its so-called World Conference against Racism that took place in Durban, South Africa, four days before the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

The New York event is outrageous. For Durban was a terrifying circus of psychotic anti-Jewish hatred whose sole purpose was to demonise and delegitimise Israel under the Orwellian banner of “human rights”.

The latest summit — called Durban IV — is being boycotted by at least 16 countries, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Hungary, Israel, the United Kingdom and the United States. But it’s sickening that it is still going ahead at all. For its purpose is to ratify the programme decided in 2001, a meeting that has become a byword for hatred, intimidation and bigotry against the Jews.

Under the camouflage of attempting to combat racism, Durban’s initial documentation downgraded the Holocaust, referred ludicrously to “Zionist racist practices against Semitism” and accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing of the Arab population in historic Palestine”.

Although these noxious and demonic lies were beaten back, the conference’s final declaration nevertheless specifically listed only the Palestinians as “victims of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance”.

Singling out Israel as the alleged perpetrator of these horrors — a charge that peddled malign falsehoods while failing to identify any of the myriad states or groups that are indeed guilty of such behaviour, including the Palestinians themselves — was itself an act of antisemitism.

Yet this governmental part of the meeting was preceded by something much worse. This was a conference of NGOs that dominated the proceedings by turning into a Jew-baiting lynch mob.
