"The 20th anniversary of the Durban Declaration is to be celebrated with a conference in September. The federal government will not participate. No explanation is given for this. Other states have also canceled - with clear reasons.
The federal government has decided not to take part in the Durban IV conference of the United Nations . WELT AM SONNTAG learned this from the Federal Foreign Office. The high-level meeting at the level of heads of state and government on September 22, 2021 is to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Durban Declaration, which was adopted in 2001 at the 2001 UN World Conference against Racism in Durban, South Africa.
In the declaration, Israel was demonized and delegitimized, and anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial were spread at the parallel NGO forum. The Durban Conference is considered to be the birth of the anti-Semitic Israel boycott campaign BDS .
Previously, Australia, Great Britain, Israel, Canada, the Netherlands, Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and the USA had already canceled their participation in the anniversary conference and justified this with concerns about a renewed vilification of Israel. The Federal Foreign Office gave no reason for refusing to attend the conference."
