Sixty-six years after he broke the color barrier and began integration of major league baseball, Jackie Robinson is still facing bigotry.

A statue of the sports and civil rights legend, who spoke out strongly against anti-Semitism, was defaced outside MCU Park in Coney Island, Brooklyn, home of the Brooklyn Cyclones.

Cases Of Mistaken Religious Identity

Israel to Boycott Durban III

12/26/2010

JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Israel will boycott a meeting at the United Nations to mark the 10th anniversary of the Durban conference on racism.

The U.N. General Assembly voted on Dec. 24 to hold a session in September on "Combating racism and follow-up of the Durban Programme of Action," dubbed Durban III. The meeting will mark the decennial of the original Durban conference, which was to have addressed institutional racism, but devolved into an anti-Israel and anti-Jewish hate-fest.

The vote was 104 nations in favor of the resolution, 22 against, and 33 abstentions.
