Israel,the Us and Canada will Boycott the Durban 11 conference in early 2009 unless they receive firm guarantees that the event will not turn into an anti Israel re run at the previous United Nations Conference on human rights in 2001.

The Israeli decision was taken several weeks ago after Foreign Ministry consultations with the Sate Department and Secretary of sate Condeleezza Rice,local media said.

Last week major American newspapers ran an advertisment signed by 25 public figures denouncing the conference as a platform for anti sentinisim bound "to encourage hatred of Israel and the US" and urged the administration away.

Jerusalem fears that it's human rights record is again likely to take center stage bashing,while "rampant racisim,religious persecution and intolerance of foreigners in other parts of the world are iognored," a Jerusalem offical said.
"Israel is sorry that the UN Secretary General and the UN Human Rights commission are not doing enough to change the content despit their dissatisfaction."
