Title: Racism conference

About this cartoon: A United Nations conference to address
racism was probably doomed from the start. The first such conference,
held in Durban, South Africa, quickly deteriorated into a bash-Israel
fest. Israel and the United States boycotted the new conference, fearing
the same scenario, and they were quickly proven correct: Iran's President
Ahmadinejad addressed the conference and promptly launced into a tirade
against the West and especially against Israel, singling it out as "racist"
and denouncing Zionism, with a slap at the Holocaust (on the eve of Holocaust
Remembrance Day) for good measure. Several additional nations walked out
at this point.
