By a 121-19 vote, with 35 abstentions, the UN General Assembly resolved to launch what, (in the past) has been just the opposite of what it’s billed as – another “global anti-racism hatefest,” known as Durban III. It is scheduled to be held in New York City, Sept. of 2011.
The gathering has been, a festival of anti Semitism!
How they can vote to hold this on U.S. soil, especially in our most Jewish populated city is just one more reason to cease all funding and oust the United Nations from America!
The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) describes it as a “concerted effort by nearly all the Muslims of the world to denounce and de-legitimize the Jewish state of Israel!
A majority of the world’s democracies either voted against or abstained. Among those who voted against were the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia, as well as most of the eastern European countries that knew Nazism at very close range.
Calling on Obama
U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (NY, D) said, “We all witnessed how extreme anti-Semitic and anti-American voices took over Durban I and Durban II, and we should expect the same thing to happen with Durban III… I appreciate the Obama Administration’s strong statement opposing yesterday’s resolution, and urge it to again withdraw from the event and encourage other nations to do the same.”
Similarly, U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the ranking Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, called on the Obama administration to “announce publicly, right now, that we will stay away from Durban III, deny it U.S. taxpayer dollars, and oppose all measures that seek to facilitate it. And we should encourage other responsible nations to do the same.”
