U.S. May Attend Durban 2 - 3

Haaretz reports that the final text of the Durban 2 declaration "omits references to Israel, Zionism, the Middle East conflict and other divisive issues that have made Western powers shy away...", thus increasing pressure on the United States to attend the conference.

However, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is still scheduled to speak at the event, with the possibility that his remarks will prompt a walk-out like the one in 2001.
