On the eve of a United Nations General Assembly vote on whether to mark the 10th anniversary of the anti-Semitic Durban racism conference in New York, Israel National News presents the first Jewish prayer service to be broadcast on Nazi soil, courtesy of the American Jewish Committee.

The broadcast, aired in October 1944 by NBC, shows soldiers singing Jewish prayers, with an embedded caption stating, “The spirit of man cannot be conquered.”

INN has posted the broadcast as Jewish organizations call on the U.N. General Assembly not to "celebrate" the first Durban "anti-racism” conference, which was supposed to deal with racism but instead was an anti-Jewish and anti-Zionist hate fest. The UN recently approved a Durban III conference for next September.

At the first Durban conference, one flier that was distributed showed a picture of Hitler and stated, “What would have happened if I had won? The good things.”

 "Celebrating Durban I will further undermine the standing of the United Nations and compromises its principles," said the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. B'nai B'rith International stated. “The Durban legacy is one of hate and discrimination, and should be remembered as such.”

The Durban II conference also attacked on Israel while ignoring genocide at Darfur as well as human rights violations in Muslim countries.
