DURBAN III: A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing!

     This September will mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy. It was 10 years ago when planes flew into the World Trade Center and changed both the New York architecture and the civilized world's psyche forever. It is undoubtedly going to be a difficult 10 year commemoration of the greatest terrorist attack on American soil. Yet, there is another event that will take place in New York City within days of the 9/11 ceremonies, and that is Durban III: World Conference Against Racism.

     At first glance, one should applause any attempt at people to organize against racism. I would wholeheartedly join such a movement, organization or event, provided it was an honest gathering resolved on fighting worldwide racism which includes antisemitism, islamophobia and other ethnic phobias.

     The problem is that Durban I and II made claims that they didn't deliver and everything so far about Durban III leads us to believe that the September event will be more of the same. Both Durban I in Durban, South Africa in 2001 and Durban II in Geneva, Switzerland in 2009 falsely appealed to the masses under the guise of fighting racism, but it quickly became apparent that their agenda was solely to demonize and delegitimize Israel and the Jewish people. It equated Zionism with Racism.

     Anne Bayefsky, Senior Editor of Eye on the UN, writes of the first Durban Conference of 2001:

 "The Durban Conference provided rampant antisemitism with a global platform under UN auspices, in a conference allegedly against racism and xenophobia. It also revealed the malevolent antisemitism underlying the campaign to delegitimize the state of Israel."

     Later, of the Durban II Conference of 2009, she writes:
"Durban II, known officially as the Durban Review Conference, was held in Geneva in April 2009. It was headlined by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who saw the occasion as ideal for issuing another denial of the Holocaust and an endorsement of genocide against the Jewish state."

     Finally, regarding the upcoming Durban III , she adds:
"By virtue of a 2010 General Assembly resolution, the purpose of Durban III is to celebrate a world conference that reveled in anti-Semitism and to adopt a final declaration that reaffirms the original Durban Declaration (and Programme of Action). That’s the Declaration supposedly to combat racism, xenophobia and related intolerance but that somehow manages to charge just one of the 192 UN members with racism, namely, Israel." (full article here)

     Durban III will be nothing more than an insult in the face of the world community. It will be a slap in the face of the Jewish community and one more platform from which the dispensers of antisemitic vitriol such as Ahmadinejad and the likes will hold hands and continue to paint Israel as the New Nazis of the Middle East.
     Where are the civilized and educated citizens of the world? Why is such a conference still taking place? Is political correctness more important than the truth?

     I am encouraged by countries like the Czech Republic, Italy and Israel who will boycott Durban III. It appears that the USA also will boycott the Conference in New York in September but they will still attend a 10 year anniversary conference in Geneva (what's the point?).

     So, what can WE do? Well, there is going to be a gathering of people in New York at the time of the conference and I strongly recommend that those who can attend, become part of this protest.
     The following is a short video explaining the Durban Conference and it contains the invitation at the end.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing!

We must apologize to JEWS and to DOGS!

After I wrote on Mr. Falk's awful entry in his personal blog about Israel, and today I feel it necessary to update my entry and further clarify why his apology was more of a disgrace than his original offense. 
As I previously reported, on June 29, U.N. Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in the Palestinian Territories, Richard Falk posted a cartoon on his personal blog (see below)

The cartoon was from an Arabic site and clearly depicted America as an Israeli influenced dog wearing a yarmulke (skull cap) with a star of David and peeing on blind justice. When confronted by leaders of Jewish organizations like the ADL, Mr. Falk pulled the cartoon of his site and offered a half-baked apology and also said that his poor eyesight made him think that the yarmulke was a helmet!

I say half baked because in his own words, he said that he didn't think that the cartoon was antisemitic, and I quote:
"With apologies, I realize that the cartoon that originally appeared on my blog devoted to the arrest warrants for Qaddafi and two others issued by the ICC had strongly anti-Semitic symbolism that I had not detected before it was pointed out to me. I posted the cartoon to express my view that double standards pertained to the American and ICC approach to international criminal accountability. As soon as I was made aware of the anti-Semitic content of the cartoon I removed it from my blog, although initially I denied such a posting because I did not realize that it was anti-Semitic and was mistaken as to what was being referred to.

Additionally, Mr. Falk also apologized to animals, as if dogs and Jews had been mutually insulted by being compared to one another. So when I think about it, I don't know what is more antisemitic: the cartoon itself of the awkward apology to Jews and animals?
His pathetic attempt at backpedaling only succeeded in more embarrassment as he added:
"Beyond this, if we are to have a sustainable human future we must also make peace with nature, and treat animals with as much respect as possible...  

Nazis used to compare Jews to vermin worthy of being crushed to death and Islamists describe Jews as pigs and apes. has Mr. Falk joined their ranks, at least philosophically, by implying that Jews and dogs were hurt in his comments. How ridiculous is that?

Mr. Falk (a Jew himself) is by his own admitting a strong critic of Israel's policies, comparing Israelis to the new Nazis of the middle east. He would most certainly agree with a cartoon from 2009 depicting Palestinians as the new victims of the "Israeli holocaust", a lie that the world is buying from Islamists and liberals alike.

So the question remains:" Is the U.N. so insensitive to Israel and the Jewish people that they don't even see the antisemitism in the cartoon that was published or are they so indoctrinated by liberal pro-Palestinians and so blinded by political correctness, that they really believe that Israel is the enemy?

One reassuring thing though, is that Israel is viewed with favor in God's eyes and if you ask me, God's view of Israel is what matters, and He has promised to never destroy her. So, I will side with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and love Israel and my people and I will do anything to expose the lies of those who hate "the apple of God's eye. May God have mercy on them and may they find peace in the Prince of Peace, Yeshua of Nazareth.

Jewish Antisemitism Not an Oxymoron!

     Jewish antisemitism does exist but it is not from Zionism as Rabbi YisroelDovid Weiss falsely claims.
     Rabbi Weiss is a member of Neturei Karta International (official website), an organization of Jewish people who are opposed to Zionism and the modern State of Israel. He claims that Judaism and Zionism are not compatible and even that Zionism is the "greatest factory" causing antisemitism.
     In a recent interview in the Tehran Times (article here) he even claims that there is no religious conflict between arabs and Jews.
     Rabbi Weiss, and I am not even convinced that he deserves to be called a rabbi, is a disgrace to Judaism. He is a living oxymoron and he is fooling himself if he thinks that people like Ahmadinejad will always befriend him. The common enemy of Zionism (in their eyes) encourages and promotes their union today but Shari'a law tomorrow will certainly lead to his [Weiss] extermination.
     What a shame! What a disgrace to Judaism! What a sad commentary on man's depravity!
     Rabbi Weiss needs to find his Messiah in the person of Yeshua of Nazareth who died for all, including him like the prophet Isaiah said centuries ago in Isaiah 52:13-53:12.
