Dear Sir           UN Anti-Racism Conference

   It is shameful of the UK to orchestrate a walk-out of European and other states from the UN
Conference in objection to President Ahmadi-Nejad's speech. First, he was bravely denouncing
Israeli Apartheid in Palestine, which your report avoided mentioning (Ahmadinejad's attack on
Israel triggers walkout at UN racism conference, 21 April). Anthony Lerman redresses the
omission (Comment) but in a humourous fashion that would not be tolerated were Jews being
persecuted in their own land. Second, Ahmadi-Nejad can hardly be racist since, as a Persian, he
is defending another race, the largely Semitic Palestinians, against the exclusive and cruel
policies of the largely Semitic Jews occupying most of their country. It is the bigots appeasing
Israeli Apartheid who expose their intolerance and racism and their subservience to the Israeli
lobby, by hypocritically and disrespectfully walking out instead of debating solutions to the
conflict, in Mr Gooderham's words;'driving a coach and horses through the principles of
tolerance and mutual respect that the conference was supposed to stand for' .
Yours faithfully
Dr James B Thring, retired architect-planner, founder 'Ministry of Peace', author of 'Crimes
against the Palestinians' and 'Peace with Iran' published by the Ministry of Peace.
