How to be kicked out of a UN conference on racism

After the embarrassment of the listening to the president of Iran last week, I wondered it there was anything that wouldn't be tolerated at a UN conference on racism.  It turns out there is: protesting racism can get you expelled.

I particularly like the removal of an Iranian NGO for distributing "inciteful materials," and hope to see a copy of what they were handing out soon. 

Of course, the European Union of Jewish Students, the Women's Association of Followers of Ahlul Baitii, and B'nai Brith were probably asking for it.  Such obviously racist NGOs couldn't be allowed to "disrupt" a conference by pointing out the real racists at the podium.
