Brief History: -1978 Conference- In 1978 a conference was held in Geneva, Switzerland focused on the apartheid of South Africa. With great irregularity these conventions were held as a part of the United Nation platform. They were termed "World Conference against Racism". It was again held in 1983 for non-specific causes. -2001 Conference- Held in Durban, South Africa it was now titled "World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance". The majority of the conference was spent discussing the Israeli treatment of Palestinians, at least 90% of time was dedicated to this. Go back and watch the videos or read the transcripts yourself. It reinstated 'UNGA 3379' a resolution passed in 1975 equating Zionism to being equivalent to racism. During this conference both the United States and Israel removed their delegation from the conference. Other nations involved in other issues could not remove themselves in order to maintain delegation in other unrelated topics. However; both Australia and Canada made statements accusing the conference of hypocrisy. ============ -2009 Conference- Held in Geneva, Switzerland Canada was the first nation to remove its delegation claiming that the conference would actually encourage racism and specifically more anti-semitism. Israel quickly followed suit. Iran and Lybia were put in charge of the planning of the event; and the current state of affairs reflects this decision. ============ Preliminary Hearings: - Anti-Semitism has been defined as "Politically Incorrect to refer to the hatred of Jews, and has evolved into the anti-Arab permutation." - "Islamophobia is the largest racist issue we have to deal with in the 21st century." Ironically; this free speech convention condoned the free speech exercised by a Norwegian broadcast depicting the Islamic Q'Ran as being a tool of hatred that opposes free speech. - The Egyptian delegate speaks not only for himself, but the entire African Union. This man has more time on the floor than the speaker of the conference, and makes more points of order than the rest of the other members combined. - They postponed the acceptance of the NGO from the 'Canadian Israeli Advocacy and Jewish Rights' for the duration of the entire preparatory meetings, which mold the topics of discussion. Eventually the NGO backed out of the application process when there was only 3 days left in the preliminary hearings. Hypocritically; allowed "Palestinian Grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign" in unanimously on its first application process. All despite that the application of the Israeli NGO was rejected for potential bias connection. Hahahaha. Hahahahaha. Keep in mind that numerous delegates clearly stated that the requirements of the NGO had been fulfilled from countries around the world. Reaching from Slovenia to France. - Applause was given in the haul when the leader of Algeria said; "We're tired of these Zionist organizations secretly running our financial systems and controlling the world." Which was given special recognition by the chair person leader. ============ The Agenda: The OIC has now said it expects Durban II to repeat or add the following to the travesty of the first Durban Declaration and Programme of Action (DDPA): • A list of multiple allegations of alleged Israeli human rights violations is accompanied by a demand that Durban II "must look into the human rights situation and urge member states to implement the provisions of the DDPA". Those provisions include the claim that Palestinians are victims of Israeli racism. • Wild trumped-up statements of global Islamophobia which in turn justify gross violations of freedom of expression around the world. • False racism charges intended to justify the introduction of roadblocks to the fight against terrorism and Islamic extremism. • Claims that "defamation of religion" trumps individual rights and freedoms, and that individual rights must take a back seat to the protection of unimpeachable "religious" views. Central Issues: •"...obstacles hampering progress in the collective struggle against racism and racial discrimination include...persisting impunity on...freedom of expression, counter terrorism or national security." • "The most disturbing phenomenon is the intellectual and ideological validation of Islamophobia...when it is expressed in the form of defamation of religions, it takes cover behind the freedom of expression and when it is expressed in the form of profiling. It hides behind the war against terrorism. The OIC believes that association of terrorism and violence with Islam or any other religion including through publication of offensive caricatures and making of hate documentaries would purposely complicate our common endeavours to address several contemporary issues including fight against terrorism and occupation of foreign territories and peoples." • "... some of the most worrying trends since 2001 include racio-religious profiling and discrimination, defamation of Muslims, their faith and beliefs, incitement to religious hatred and its concomitant effects on multiculturalism, national and international peace and stability as well as human rights of the affected communities." • repeats the Israel is racist charge. Its victims of racism include "concern about the plight of the Palestinian people under foreign occupation • singles out Israel. No other country-specific victims are identified. • challenges the right to freedom of expression by calling on states to "elaborate" "permissible limitations on the exercise of the right to freedom of expression" and to "elaborate" "a voluntary ethical code of conduct" for journalists • gives Islam special preference. It calls on states to "pay attention to the serious nature of incitement to religious hatred such as anti-semitism, Christianophobia and more particularly, Islamophobia." ============ Now compliment me on my brilliant writing here. In any case; Durban II is really keeping to its name it's the second "Durban", which should be defined as... "Extreme Islamic Nations Conference to Wipe out Israel"
