Well it's great to see Andrew Bolt lashing out against the UN Conference on Racism, accusing it of racism merely for allowing Iran's fruitcake premier to speak. This from a columnist who claims Victorian police are deliberately hiding the extent of crime by African migrants, who moderates comments calling for the destruction of entire nations and who thinks that only black-skinned people can be indigenous Australians.
And what kind of morons congregate around this mediocre tabloid blogger? How about this happy clappy ...

The europeans have soled themselves out to Islamic oil Barrie. This started under DeGaul, post WW2, it is merely gaining momentum now.
Well, the bible does prophesy that the world will turn against Israel, and we appear to be seeing that in our lifetimes. God help those nations who stand against his people, it boggles my mind that Christians can stand against Israel when they claim allegiance, at least in name, if not in spirit, with their messiah.
Indeed many evangelical interpretations of Biblical prophecy also state that Jesus will return to earth to finish off the job Adolf Hitler couldn't quite finish. Then of course you have apologists for South Africa's apartheid regime.

... What does it say of a South African government permitting yet another anti-Semitic conference to be held in South Africa itself AND inviting arch-terrorist Ahmadinejad to address the conference?
Can’t imagine the old white South African government doing anything like this.
I thought "Durban II" was actually being held in Geneva. But still, the old white South African government always knew how to put racists in their place. And what better way to fight racism than with good old-fashioned genocide?
The Muslim world has invented nothing in the last 800 years but are now gathering nuclear weapons to point at the decadent west. Its about time we got a little generous with our nuclear technology and levelled a few of our foes before its too late.

And if genocide doesn't work, perhaps nuclear war might be an appropriate step.
Q: What is flat, lifeless and glows in the dark in the Middle East?
A: Iran, after Israel finally loses patience.

But out of all this bigotry, one lonely voice of reason stood out.
We have survived Pharaoh, the Romans, the Christian pogroms, the Ottomans, the Soviets and the Nazis. Their empires are dust, and we’re still here. We have nothing to fear from a stupid little conference and a jumped-up chickenhawk like Ahmadinejad.
So touching Andrew, your support for Jews when they’re thousands of miles away in their ancestral homeland, more numerous, prosperous and secure than at any time in the last few millennia.
Yet I can predict how you and your readers would have reacted, if you’d been around when my grandparents arrived in Sydney in 1939, by boat, uninvited, stateless, no passport, no English, telling their stories of persecution in German (and this was in the days before the world knew about the existence of death camps).
You’d be calling for the boat to be turned around and my grandparents “sent back where they came from”, wouldn’t you? That’s the reception your readers really have in mind for people like my grandparents.
Given your attitude towards the persecuted elsewhere in the world, and your unwillingness to help those who come to these shores in need, I can assure you that Israel and the Jews do not need your particular brand of “support”.
