The Summit Of Disgrace:

UN Summit: Boycott Israel
YNET--Yaakov Lappin

A UN conference, held at the European Parliament in Brussels, heard an array of speakers call for a boycott against Israel and strategize on ways to achieve its international isolation, during the first day of an event billed by organizers as a gathering to promote "Middle East peace".

The 'International Conference of Civil Society in Support of Israeli-Palestinian Peace' has been organized by the UN's Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, and attracted political figures and pro-Palestinian members of non governmental organizations (NGOs).

According to the Bnei Brith organization, which sent delegates to attend the conference from its European Affairs Office, British Member of Parliament Clare Short said during her speech that Israel was not interested in a two-state solution, and blasted the EU for "allowing" Israel to build "an apartheid wall".

"The boycott worked for South Africa, it is time to do it again," Short was quoted as saying.

'Members Guided By Clear Agenda'

"This is a conference of Israel-haters," Adam Mouchtar, Director of Bnei Brith's European Union Affairs Office, told Ynetnews. Mouchtar attended the conference's first day, and said its members were clearly guided by a single agenda: "To prove that Israel is a racist apartheid state, and therefore Israel should be boycotted internationally, as South Africa was."

"We've had this in Durban in 2001. These are the same organizations that took over the Durban conference and coined the term 'Zionism is racism'," Mouchtar said.

He added that the most positive speech came from an Israeli-Arab Knesset Member, Nadia Hilou, who praised the recent boost in relations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

"I feel that it's a farce," Mouchtar said, adding: "It's a biased conference. It nearly totally excludes any reasonable Israeli speakers." According to Mouchtar, one of the few Jewish attendees was a "self hater" invited to "legitimize the claim that the conference was not biased".

Mouchtar called on the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, to take action to prevent such activities in the future, adding that the actions of UN sub-committees were "delegitimizing the good work the UN is doing in other fields".

Hello friends

How many more times we will be exposed to the UN'S working for its clients , the SAUDIS?

How many more lows can we find the UN sitting in debasing everything it was meant to be?

If the UN is representing the face of the world , this is one one hell of an ugly looking world .

Boy, can it use a burqua!

Has the UN ever done anything useful? Well, it certainly has kept the New York City Traffic Violations Bureau busy processing arrest warrants for all those tickets those America-hating diplomats keep running up. J'Mac.

J'Mac.

Waylon is the reprehensible , repugnant , repulsive , horrible LARD.SOC.

No matter how much he tries to fool us with a new charcter - we eventually find him out mostly , but not only, because of his pathological anti- Semitism.

Tell him you know who is and then -stay away. This is my advice.

Stay well SABA.
