walk-out,   resolution, equates Zionism, racism,bigotry
There are a number of grounds on which the accusations of anti-semitism have been based. He was repeatedly critical, from his days in politics onwards, of the influence Jewish people had on society and the world of finance. In The Cruise of the Nona, Belloc reflected equivocally on the Dreyfus Affair after thirty years.[19] Norman Rose's book The Cliveden Set (2000) poses the question of whether Nancy Astor, a friend of Belloc's in the 1930s until they broke over religious matters, was influenced by him against Jews in general.[20] .
On the other hand, Canadian broadcaster Michael Coren wrote:
Belloc's polemics did periodically drift into the realms of bigotry, but he was invariably a tenacious opponent of philosophical anti-Semitism, ostracized friends who made attacks upon individual Jews, and was an inexorable enemy of fascism and all its works, speaking out against German anti-Semitism before the National Socialists came to power.



Italy pulls out of UN conference, citing anti-semitism


Italy will not take part in an upcoming UN conference on racism because a draft resolution contains anti-semitic language. The New York-based World Jewish Congress hailed the move as a 'principled decision.' Israel, Canada, the United States and Britain have vowed to boycott the gathering unless the language is changed. The European Union also wants five paragraphs of the draft altered. The first racism conference, held in Durban, South Africa, in 2001, saw a walk-out by Israel and the US in protest against a bid by Arab nations to adopt a resolution that equates Zionism with racism.
