Did you know Iran was the SOURCE of the "Apartheid" and "Nazi" SMEARS against Israel on here?

In terms of it's politicisation as a weapon, October 1961 was actually the year the "apartheid" accusation first surfaced in the UN against Israel, in a speech by Saudi Arabia's representative Ahmad Shukairy (who became the first head of the PLO, in 1964), during a season of strong UN condemnation of South Africa.

No doubt it was infamously resurrected in 1975

But the current impetus for use of the term undeniably comes from what was done at Durban 2001.

And this impetus is to completely sloganise the term to the nth degree. - As the leadership of the BDS revealingly put it early on in their movement, around the same time,

"... We hope that in 10, 20 years the public will just take for granted the premises that Israel is an Apartheid state, and then we can move from there...”

In which ratio compares an absolute monarchy which crucifies and beheads people with the only state in the middle east where it's safe to be gay.
The Zionist State brutally represses and murders regularly the majority of the population under it's control which is indigenous- one of the things they specialize in his the torture of children often on no pretext in order to traumatize them for life. Even the Saudi regime as sick as it is does not go that low. Both States are the wealthiest in the region but both are probably the most socially unjust- the Jewish poverty under the Zionist State particularly among children and the elderly once you get outside of the touristy areas is heart breaking to behold. Actually the thing that freaks out the indigenous population in Palestine most about the Settlers is the way they disregard their own elderly. I don't care about "Gay Rights". The fact that you would put them before very basic human things like making sure kids are fed and not tortured says well, what does it say about you?

I would suggest you take 6 weeks off and go back to Troll school . Or if thats not feasible concentrate on the American forums where the level of stupidity might suit your abilities somewhat better .

The script was set.

Durban not only made declarations of the "victimization" of Palestinians by Israeli "racism" etc.

It also equated criticism of Islam to “racism”. That's where it started. - More precisely, it equated criticism of Islam or its acts to “Islamophobia” and thus to “racism”, and sought to criminalise any statements about Islam, at the same time encouraging open assailment of other religions by Muslims around the world.

But why did so many countries pitch into this effort? - Well let's look at what was left out of the conference for some clues (conference was held between 31 August and 8 September 2001).

1. Russia’s recent incursions into Eastern European countries including Ukraine, Armenia, and Georgia.
2. China’s control of Tibet.
3. No mention was made of the decades of Islamic terrorist/suicide bombers and the killing of innocent men, women, and children in Israel and around the world.
4. No mention was made of the persecution and killings of Christians and other non-Muslims in Muslim nations, such as Egypt, Indonesia, Kosovo (UN-created entity), Nigeria, Pakistan, and Sudan.
5. No mention was made of free speech, only condemnation of “hate” speech, defined as any words that may be interpreted as critical of Islam.
6. No mention was made of violations of the human rights of Christians by Muslim governments......................

And just to fill in those readers late to the party, let's recall the essentials of the six-point indictment emanating from the Teheran regional conference.

Now, do please answer me whether or not these indictments regularly pop up in the narrative against Israel on this forum, and more generally in the narrative of the anti-Zionist movement today.

1. The occupation of the West Bank and Gaza is a “crime against humanity, a new form of apartheid, a threat to international peace and security."

2. Zionism is not only “racism,” but a violent expression of racist supremacy – indeed, it is the primary form of anti-Semitism itself.

3. Attacks against Israel should be construed as “resistance” to occupation.

4. The “ethnic cleansing” of Mandatory Arab Palestine in 1947-48 was the “original sin” of Israel's creation.

5. Israel is the “poisoner of the international wells”.

6. Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians is the “real” holocaust. (in the documentation, “holocausts,” was intentionally written in the plural and in lower case.)

Now no doubt the a lot of the language and references put into the documentation in Teheran was struck out of the final official UN conference documentation, covered up and watered down. - But my question is did such language and false, discriminatory, prejudicial references actually survive to be made reality in the world? - Do we witness it again and again today? - Is it in fact become ubiquitous?

Do people understand why Durban I was described by Holocaust refugee and former Rep. Tom Lantos as the most sickening and unabashed display of hate for Jews I had seen since the Nazi period. ?

Just ceaseless one accusation after another accusation after another accusation, to justify hatred of Israelis.

The "logic of anti Semitism" (or "anti-Zionism").

It doesn't matter what is the reality, you just keep on repeating the accusation, as per Goebbels.

Of course you could just as easily find some tiny instance of your accusations in Ireland and any other country in the world and then generalise it to incite hatred.

Such nonsense. Especially when you compare Israel to any other country in the world.

But thanks for the exhibition of this mindless repeating and repeating of these accusations which justify retribution and make the moral case for annihilating Israel.

It's actually exactly what is done on a formal level by Israel's enemies (whose script also clearly comes from Durban I).

Netanyahu's announcement came a few hours after IAEA's acting director-general, Cornel Feruta, said at a meeting of the organization’s board of governors in Vienna that “time was of the essence” for Iran to explain how uranium particles were found at the Turquzabad site which Iran originally said was a carpet-cleaning facility.
