The ADL on Thursday welcomed the US's announcement that it won't participate in the United Nations' "Durban III" conference. "It is appropriate for the US to refuse to be a party to anti-Semitism and anti-Israel extremism at the United Nations," ADL Director Abraham Foxman said in a statement.

While stating the importance of examining racism and intolerance, "doing so through the tainted Durban process only serves to perpetuate the very bias it purports to work against," the statement added.
