What Durban II Should Have Been…

Kudos to the crowd over at AJC’s UN Watch, which was a key part of the diverse coalition that put together yesterday’s Geneva Summit for Human Rights, Tolerance, and Democracy — a gathering of dissidents and human rights activists speaking out for dispossessed minorities around the world.

Among the key speakers: Ashraf El Hagog, the Palestinian doctor who was imprisoned, tortured, and sentenced to death in Libya for supposedly infecting children with AIDS. UN Watch had previously brought him in to speak at the UN — and this happened.

Also, check out Zvika Krieger’s reflections over at The New Republic.
