Analysis: UN racism conference – disaster born from disaster

Posted by claudiacampli su 20 aprile, 2009

Catherine Philp, Diplomatic Correspondent

There has only ever been one United Nations conference on racism before and it ended in disaster. The second begins in it.

The boycott, begun by the United States and Israel, has snowballed so far across the Western world that any official international consensus on dealing with racism and xenophobia now looks near pointless.

Australia, New Zealand and Canada declined some weeks ago to attend the so-called Durban II in Geneva, with Italy and the Netherlands joining them. Now Germany and Poland have followed them in staying away after up to the wire negotiations by Britain and France for Europe to attend on a united front. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Yitzhak Benhorin

WASHINGTON – Prominent members of the Jewish community and survivors of racially-motivated torture from Africa, Cuba and Burma have joined an unprecedented campaign, led by a coalition of 40 human rights groups from around the world, to present human rights and discrimination issues that the world community should address when they gather next week.

Known as ‘Durban II,’ the conference is to be held in Geneva next week. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Guerra, economia e democrazia Bibi & Co. non faranno prigionieri

IL NUOVO GOVERNO

Benjamin Netanyahu, il disastroso primo ministro israeliano dal ’96 al ’99, tornato poi come ministro delle finanze tatcheriano nel 2003, ha presentato al parlamento israeliano il più ampio governo della sua storia: 30 ministri e 9 vice ministri. Molti credevano in un «nuovo Netanyahu» e ieri il nuovo primo ministro ha dimostrato che la sua maggiore preoccupazione risiede nel manipolare l’apparato politico. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas charged on Wednesday that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu did not believe in peace, urging the international community to exert pressure on him to accept a two-state solution.

“It’s obvious that Netanyahu does not believe in the two-state solution and the agreements signed with the Palestinians and does not want to stop settlement construction,” Abbas said. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

They did not wait for Lieberman

The dismissal letters sent to 40 Arab employees of Israel Railways did not come as much of a surprise. For weeks now, the company had been seeking the legal phrasing that would allow the layoffs to proceed. First, it announced fresh demand for several roles, mostly having to do with security, such as watchmen for the train tracks. All candidates would have to have served in the Israel Defense Forces.

When it turned out this contravened the principle of equality in employment, the company tried to argue that the jobs in question had a specific security aspect. But a letter sent by Palestinian rights organization Adalah to the company’s management and the Transportation Ministry reveals that this argument is just as flawed, contravening the Basic Law on Freedom of Occupation.

Israeli police clashed with Palestinian demonstrators in Umm al Fahm north-west of the West Bank yesterday, after an Israeli court had allowed a far-right demonstration to go ahead at the edge of the town. Dozens were arrested and about 30 people needed medical treatment after police used tear gas, stun grenades and water cannons to disperse crowds which had arrived to protest against the far-right march. Israeli officials said 2,500 police officers had been deployed to prevent clashes, Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossam Zaki on Sunday called Israel Beiteinu Chairman Avigdor Lieberman’s views on his country “racist.” “Egypt does not dictate to any country the formation of its government,” he said in an interview with Israel Radio. “This is a consistent policy and I don’t believe it is appropriate to change this policy now… But of course this person has had racist positions toward Egypt before.” Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Is Avigdor Lieberman a racist? No, but…

abe selig , THE JERUSALEM POST

He wants to redraw Israel’s boundaries to maintain a Jewish majority, and his election campaign centered around the creation of a loyalty oath for the country’s citizens. And now that Avigdor Lieberman’s Israel Beiteinu party has been confirmed as the third-largest party in the government – not to mention the likely linchpin of any sustainable coalition – debate is deepening: Is Lieberman is a racist?
