    Here is the article.

    I'm no Obama supporter, but I support this decision. As I commented...whether he boycotts the meeting or shows up for the meeting and speaks up for Israel is totally up to him. Standing firm to make an important point is what is important. Arguing over style is a waste of time.

    Amen, IIRC this is where they tried to make 'defamation of religion" a crime. My only concern is whether with a boycott, there won't be any opposing voices and they can claim that the resolution passed without objection...

    Wouldn't it look rather silly for him to go to a meeting on "racism" when not even 200 yrs ago Black people were slaves in his own country and now he, a Black Man is the President of that country, what other country in the world has as many different races living in it than Obama's country, what other country would allow 12 million aliens to illegally cross it's borders and instead of deporting them Obama's country supports them.
    The last thing in the world an American President should go to is a meeting on Racism unless they go to "show em how it's done".

    Good job by the administration & Obama in this case. I don't believe Obama would have attended this sort of administration. The United States is boycotting the event.

    The proposal y the UN will ban any criticism of Islam as defamation and a 'crime' funny given that Islamic countries routinely denying religious freedom to worship to members of other religions.
