An impeccably anti-racist state takes a place on the committee planning Durban II, the UN’s World Congress on Racism.
I’m being sarcastic – we know about the anti-Israel blinkers in the UN Human Rights Council – look at Durban I with its scarey NGO document (the conference ran on a full day after it was scheduled to end and the document was eventually amended by a narrow majority which voted to expunge references to racism and apartheid).
If I tell you that Libya is chairing the committee, does that help?
You guessed it – Iran. From Ynet:
When asked how a state which openly denies the Holocaust could find itself in such a role, the spokesperson said: “The Preparatory Committee is an inter-governmental body, meaning States were chosen freely to sit on the Prep-Com. It is the Member-States who decide.”
