Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sorry for taking so long to reply - I completely forgot I made the comment. Iran is clearly in no position to throw stones when it comes to racism - just ask an Iranian Bahá'í, for example - or indeed when it comes to human rights generally.

Perhaps the conference will be used to productively work towards ending racism in all countries. If, however, it just becomes a place for countries like Iran to grandstand and proclaim "Zionism equals Racism", then I doubt it will be a worthwhile venture. Indeed, if this happens it will just allow Israel to proclaim once again how biased the UN is against it (a ridiculous charge, but that is beside the point).
