Israel announced it would skip the UN-sponsored forum on racism. Between 1973 and 1991 Zionism was classified as a form of racism at the UN, so this is a touchy subject for Israelis after all. Never mind if there is any validity in lumping Zionism into the Racism category, Israel will skip the forum nonetheless. Model behavior for the "model" democracy in the Middle East !
