Prominent Harvard law professor, United States constitutional law and criminal law scholar, and human rights activist Alan Dershowitz speaks out with indignation and incredulity at the Durban III Counter Conference in NY, at the hypocrisy of the undemocratic tyrranies, who make up a large percentage of the member states of the UN, who dare to criticize and accuse Israel of human rights violations.
The first of the three United Nations “World Conference against Racism” (aka the “Durban Conference”) began on August 31, 2001 and ended on September 8, 2001, a mere three days before the hijacking and crashingof jet airplanes into the pentagon and world trade center by Islamic terrorists. The conference centered almost exclusively on the idea that zionism was equivalent to racism and the racist crimes committed by Israel against the Palestinean People. The juxtaposition of the terror attacks of 9/11, which claimed the lives of nearly 3000 innocent people, in the name of Islam, and the hypocritical Durban Conference was glaring. After 3 days at the conference, the U.S. and Israeli delegations withdrew. The next Conference, held in Geneva, was boycotted by 10 western countries. The following conference in New York in 2011 was boycotted by 18 countries.
As UK foreign minister Lord Malloch-Brown stated, “If we can’t go forward now, we will withdraw. I was at the first conference. I have never seen such a disgraceful event in quite a long international life.”
