Defamation of religion passages dropped from Durban II

Some good news at last from the UN, where threats by the European Union to join the US, Italy, Israel and Canada in boycotting April’s anti-racism conference, Durban II, have resulted in a victory over the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) .

Passages relating to “defamation of religions”, as well as perceived anti-semitic references to the Palestinian territories and Middle East, have been dropped from the meeting’s draft declaration. Durban II may not turn out to be such a farce after all.
