Polish European Parliament Members to Boycott Anti-Israel UN Conference

From Polish European Parliament Members to Boycott Anti-Israel UN Conference:

A UN conference on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, to be hosted at the European Parliament this month, will be boycotted by Polish members of the European Parliament from across the political spectrum who say that the conference is biased against Israel. The Jerusalem-based NGO Monitor said the upcoming conference is a rehash of the 2001 UN Durban conference on racism, which saw unprecedented levels of anti-Zionist rhetoric, and calls for Israel's destruction. Parliament member Konrad Szymanski said: "(The) UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People is a platform for activity of various extremists. According to most of them, Israel should disappear."
