Durban conference

Canada to Boycott Durban III

11/28/2010

TORONTO (JTA)-- Canada is boycotting the third U.N. "Durban conference" against racism, citing the charged anti-Israel and anti-Semitic rhetoric at its predecessors.

The conference is slated to mark the 10th anniversary of the 2001 meeting in South Africa aimed at defeating xenophobia and racism. Canada and several other countries walked out of that meeting after Iran and several other countries engaged in Israel-bashing.
