President Carter criticized the U.S. decision to withdraw from the U.N. World Conference Against Racism over resolutions that called Israel’s policies toward the Palestinians a new form of apartheid. “Symbolically, we have a very strong commitment to Israel,” Carter said. “But we could have set that point aside, saying we would not participate or endorse anything related to Israel.” Israel also withdrew from the conference in Durban, South Africa.
