Arab and Muslim delegates rejected a draft resolution at the U.N. World Conference Against Racism that empathizes with the suffering of the Palestinians, but removes language singling out Israel as racist. Efforts continue to find a compromise resolution before the end of the conference Friday. Israel and the United States walked out of the conference earlier this week because Israel was singled out for harsh criticism.
