The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) responded to the passage of a resolution to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 2001 Durban conference, calling it "a conference that will undermine rather than advance the fight against discrimination."

ADL Director Abraham Foxman called on governments "to announce that they will not participate" in the conference. He said that from its inception, "the Durban process was tainted by the very bias it purported to work against."

Foxman added, "Durban marked the start of a new chapter in the vilification and delegitimization of the state of Israel and the Jewish people. We recall how many abused the conference as a platform to turn the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into a racial conflict and their incendiary branding of Israel as an apartheid state."
