MV: "Recall particularly the UN General Assembly`s infamous "Zionism is Racism" resolution 3379 (1975). Even the General Assembly itself eventually came to recognise how odious 3379 was, repealing it in resolution 4686 (1991)." Leaving aside the fact that zionism is indeed an inherently racist doctrine, it is a lunacy to claim that Res 3379 was repealed because the UN GA rethought the issue and decided it had made a mistake. It was repealed because the year was 1991 and the Madrid Conference was being prepared, and Yitzak Shamir said that there was no way on Earth Israel would attend unless Res 3379 was repealed. Hard to have a conference regarding Israels conflict with the Arabs without Israel, so realpolitik required that Res 3379 be repealed, and repealed it was.
