Glad the US is not going to Durban rabbi Jonathan Ginsburg

U.S. to Boycott Durban III Racism Conference - Nicole Gaouette
The U.S. has announced it won't attend the 10-year commemoration of the UN Durban conference on combating racism on Sep. 21 in New York. Acting Assistant Secretary of State Joseph Macmanus said that the U.S. voted against the UN resolution establishing the 2011 event because the so-called Durban process "included ugly displays of intolerance and anti-Semitism and we did not want to see that commemorated."
