Gordon Brown Becomes 1st Major World Leader to Sign Anti-Semitic Pact

Cheers to Gordon Brown.

The current British Prime Minister may be under fire from conservatives within the UK government over his handling of the current economic crisis, but it's a positive sign that he has become the first leader of a major Western Power to step forward and put his signature on the London Declaration against antisemitism.

On Wednesday the Anti Defamation League Website reported that 120 lawmakers from 40 countries came together at the Inter-Parliamentary Coalition for Combating Antisemitism.

One of the most interesting goals of this ambitious effort to combat anti-Jewish bigotry is to form a coalition of Internet experts to track the metrics of online antisemitic activity.

Perhaps they could start by monitoring racist, antisemitic hate monger Ann Coulter, who openly expresses her hatred of Jews (and pretty much anyone who isn't blond, white, Christian, American and registered with the Republican party..) on mainstream media all the time. Take a look at the clip to the right. Achtung baby.

It's a great sign to see global initiatives like this take root as humanity seeks to step into a more evolved age of awareness and begin bringing hate and discrimination in all it's forms into the light of truth and knowledge.

My hope would be to see the White House follow suit with a similar pledge of support from President Obama and raise racial unity and the healing of the wounds of hate to it's rightful place at the top of the agenda.
