Zionists Admit Control of "Hotels, Meeting Facilities and Funding" at Durban II
by Hanna Kawas l
Hillel Neuer, executive director of the Zionist "UN Watch", admits and
brags about his organization's role in denying "hotels, meeting
facilities and funding" to NGO's who tried to go to the Durban II
"Durban II was not the fiasco of Durban I,” he said. “Contrary to the
efforts and designs and the wishes of [Iran’s Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad, of
Ghaddafi, of anti-Western, anti-Israel forces around the world, Durban
II was a massive defeat. It was a massive defeat for all of them.”
Outside the main meeting, the nongovernmental groups that fomented the
worst of the anti-Semitism at Durban were absent from Geneva, in part
because UN Watch and its allies, according to Neuer, arranged to deny
them hotels, meeting facilities and funding.
“So the haters of Israel remarked that walking around Geneva that week
was like walking around ‘Israel-occupied territory,’ ” he said. “That’s
how they felt."
This raises the question: Are the United Nation and the Swiss Government aware of this infringement on freedom of assembly and freedom of speech? Are they complicit in this infamy?
We would like to have answers from the UN and the Swiss Government.
The Zionist lobbies shed crocodile tears about freedom of speech whenever they are exposed to the Palestinian truth and facts, especially on Canadian universities. However, at the same time, they try to silence every criticism of Israel and label it as "anti-Semitism" to the point of getting some opportunist Canadian MP's to try and criminalize criticism of Israel.
It is ironic that the same issue of the so-called "Jewish Independent", in its editorial "Judaism does equal Israel
", tries to cover up what the Zionist lobby does stand for i.e. silencing any legitimate criticism of Israel. The editorial pontificates as part of its attack on the upcoming lecture of Jewish theologian Prof. Marc Ellis:
"We must start 'taking it to the streets,' so to speak – not to prevent someone else’s free speech (sic!), but to exercise our own."
