UN defends right to racism, suppresses protests

Swiss order is to be maintained: Wigged hecklers booted from Durban II
What is especially ominous, is the statement of the Swiss President:
"Switzerland is neutral and not part of any alliance
Switzerland, of course, was neutral between Nazism and decency before. That did not prevent the Swiss from storing the gold taken from the fillings of concentration camp victims to the account of the reichsbank and of Nazi officials, or from allowing the use of Swiss railways stations as way-stations for Jews being transported to concentration camps.
Of course, anti-"Zionist" protestors will not be expelled, but rather given facilities for organizing their incitement.

Here is the story:
The United Nations on Tuesday said it has expelled a "large number" of members of a Jewish student group from the Durban Review racism conference after some of them disrupted a speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Spokeswoman Marie Heuze said the UN acted in response to Monday's disturbance by rainbow-wigged protesters, who shouted insults and threw small red clowns' noses at Ahmadinejad.
Members of the European Union of Jewish Students also attempted to block the Iranian leader's appearance at a news conference.
Heuze said Tuesday the students "have no chance of returning."
In Israel, a group of students from the Amit Kfar Batya High School in Ra'anana held a demonstration Tuesday across from the Swiss Embassy in Tel Aviv to protest the meeting between Swiss President Hans-Rudolf Merz and Ahmadinejad.
The students transferred a letter to the Swiss president, who on Monday defended his decision to meet Ahmadinejad, saying, "Switzerland is neutral and not part of any alliance."
"Ahmadinejad uses Nazi terminology, which is why it is so scary and perhaps ironic that exactly a day after your distressing meeting with him Israel marks Holocaust Remembrance Day," the letter read.
The Swiss president's "dinner with the Iranian president," the students said, "shows that Switzerland - under your leadership - has apparently learned nothing from history and you, too, like your forefathers during the Holocaust, ignore the existential threat to us today.
"History repeats itself. Please do not allow that horrible chapter in human history to repeat itself."
