I don’t often have a go at Pope Benedict XVI, but WHY is he supporting the United Nations conference on “racism” in Geneva? You know, the one where leading anti-racist (and Holocaust denier) Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a major participant. The one convened by thatÂ celebrant of human rights, Libya. The one where speaker after speaker is lined up to gibber about the most evil racist regime the world has ever known,Â ieÂ the Zionist entity.
I’ve been reading the preparatory documents for this ridiculous event, known as Durban II, and I can see why the Obama administration, together with pant-wettingly PC Australia and Canada, is boycotting it.Â Even the BBC is having doubts about it, which is saying something. But, as its website reports:
The Pope spoke out in favour of the conference, saying it was an opportunity to fight discrimination and intolerance. “We ask for firm and consistent action, at national and international level, to prevent and eliminate any form of discrimination and of intolerance,” he said.
With respect, Holy Father, it’s not an opportunuityÂ to fight racism; like the disgusting fiasco in Durban in 2001, it’s an opportunity for African dictators and Jew-baiting Islamists to fulminate against Israel and the neo-Nazi, anti-Arab hordes that are sweeping across racist Europe, while dismissing any trifling Muslim assaults on other faiths as Islamophobic myths.
I wonder if the Vatican is sending any bishops to Geneva. I can think of one who’d feel at home there,Â can’tÂ you?Â
