U.S. officials say the United States will not participate in a United Nations conference on racism this year unless a draft version of the meeting's final report is drastically changed.
The U.S. State Department issued a statement Friday about the World Conference Against Racism, saying U.S. representatives will be unable to attend the conference, due to open in about two months (April 20-25) in Geneva.
The draft of a final document for the conference has already been circulated among U.N. member nations. The State Department said the draft in its current form is not salvageable. American envoys say it would limit freedoms of religion and speech and would unfairly label Israel's policies as racist.
Now, let me get this straight. We're threatening to boycott this conference because of ISRAEL?
Here we go again, letting the 51st state dictate foreign policy for this country.
Because they were TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT ISRAEL?
Why do I feel AIPAC's hands ALL OVER THIS?
Rahm Emmanuel's hands all over this?
