In 2001 a United Nations conference was held in Durban, South Africa with the goal of tackling racism.
A noble ambition but the event was turned into a hate fest against Israel and a hotbed of antisemitism by those that attended.
In September, to mark the 20th anniversary of the first conference, Durban IV will take place in New York.
Already the governments of Australia, Canada and the United States of America have pledged not to participate.
If our government is serious about tackling racism it must follow the lead of those countries and refuse to send a delegation to Durban IV.

After defending itself against more than 4,000 rocket attacks and degrading Hamas’ ability to launch further attacks a ceasefire remains in place between Israel and Hamas.
We stand ready to defend Israel if Hamas restarts its attacks.
However, we must also continue the fight for truth.
As usual too many UK politicians were prepared to equivocate about the terror group Hamas when the fighting was taking place.
They must be held to account and the politicians must be told the facts.

FORGOTTEN REFUGEES PETITION
After the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, 850,000 Jews living for generations in Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen were forced to leave their homes and their property to flee persecution.
While the plight of the original 711,000 Palestinian refugees has been given special status by the international community, Jewish refugees have been ignored and forgotten.
We, the undersigned, call upon the UK government to ensure that the public understand the full history of the Middle East and designate 30 November as a national day of awareness where we remember and commemorate the plight of Jewish refugees.
