"The state department said the proposed text of the conference's guiding document remained unacceptable despite having been amended significantly.

The US and Israel quit a similar forum in Durban in 2001 when its draft document likened Zionism to racism."

No surprise here, though I did have the audacity to hope.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

This conference has been a complete bust ever since its inception.It's only useful for those racial elements who are using the conference to get lots more press for their supposedly dictatorial doctrines of nations whose governments are so far out from democracy and human rights that they come off as being completely IGNORANT of their OWN REALITIES. As a statement was found in one of the Islamic terrorist organizations it it states that if terrorists are caught in terrorist activities they should immediately SCREAM HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES and unfair treatment by the arresting forces and countries while being held, and to make sure they MAKE THE MOST OF MEDIA HEADLINES TO get the most coverage of their supposed plight and inhumane treatment by the authorities. Racism is rampant with most of the PUPPET NATIONS? attending this conference. So what else is new with this completely useless and yes CRAP conference? This is but another U.N. waste of time and money to another useless project like the millions of dollars spent feeding the people for free who have nothing but hatred for anything Western. These little potentates take our money and extras with open arms but we never seem to get anything on where this money, food etc. went to until we learn later that these petty governments stole the free meal and their people got NOTHING and we cannot do anything about it except to not hurt their feelings and give them MORE. Sincerely Timothy and R. Carin Kritsch
