Naomi Klein :
“[Some Jews] even think we get one get-away-with-genocide-free-card.”
“the decision isn’t to boycott Israel but rather to oppose official relationships with Israeli institutions.”
ON the UN Durban Review Conference held in Geneva in April, Klein says that she was disturbed by “the Jewish students’ lack of respect for the representatives from Africa and Asia who came to speak about issues like compensation for slavery and the rise of racism around the world.”
Klein described the Jewish students who protested against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech at the conference as “truly awful” – in the same breath as she described Ahmadinejad as “truly awful.”
