This is a bold, unabashed and assertive demand that Israel be treated as an equal amongst nations. A thank you with spine, how's that for a twist? And may we all go FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH!!
PM Netanyahu sent a Letter to the Countries that Boycotted the Durban
Conference in Geneva
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent a letter to the countries that
boycotted the Durban Conference in Geneva thanking them for their decision.
The Prime Minister also praised the countries whose delegates walked out
during the speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the event.
The Prime Minister wrote in the letter:
"As Israel marks Holocaust Remembrance Day, I am writing to express my
appreciation for your decision not to participate in the Durban II
conference in Geneva. That decision helps restore a measure of sanity
in a world in which a conference against racism gives a platform to the head of a regime that denies the Holocaust and openly seeks to perpetrate a new one through the destruction of the Jewish state.
With the most basic values of humanity under assault, your government took
an unequivocal moral stand. It is my fervent hope that this stand taken by
your country and a handful of others will mark a turning point in this
battle and that moral clarity will once again prevail in world affairs."
