Israel Is The Only State Directly Named By The UN As A Violator Of Women's Rights

(Hat Tip: Giyus)
Yeah, I know. It would be extremely laughable if it weren't getting so pathetic and old already. At this year's annual meeting of the UN on the matter of women's rights, Israel was the ONLY state or country directly named as being a violator; not of Israeli women mind you. No, of course not. But, rather of PALESTINIAN WOMEN. The rest of the meeting dealt with vague topics like female genital mutilation and forced marriage, but NO OTHER country was named as a culprit of having committed these crimes. No, the Israeli "occupation" is the reason that the progress and advancement of Palestinian women are being stifled. No mention of "honor killings" being committed against Palestinian women by PALESTINIAN MEN being a reason in this, or even as a VIOLATION of women's rights. No mention of the oppression of Palestinian women by PALESTINIAN MEN being the reason, or even as a VIOLATION of women's rights. No mention of Palestinian women being used as TERRORISTS and SUICIDE BOMBERS by PALESTINIAN terrorist organizations, even MOTHERS and GRAND MOTHERS, as being the reason, or even as a VIOLATION of women's rights. Wait, nix the last one. Many Western feminist organizations say that women volunteering to blow themselves up amongst innocent civilians are a HUGE step FORWARD in women's rights in the Middle East. READ THE REST...

Nope, it's all because of the "occupation". The Palestinian Authority bears no responsibility in the degradation of Palestinian women even though no economic infrastructure has been created for the Palestinian women to work in. No, the only jobs available are government jobs, and the only real paying jobs available within those government positions are "security". The women aint allowed to play there. They can only volunteer for "martyrdom" missions. They're not allowed to actually work with the men to "serve and protect". Yeah, it's all because of the "occupation". It's so old already. It's so pathetic. I expect the next UN report on Global Warming and Climate Change to have a clause in there that blames the whole thing on Israel and the "occupation". If only the "occupation" were to stop, then no-one would pollute or drive SUVs anymore. By the way, I suggest you actually read the draft to really grasp the absurdity of the whole thing.
Women's Rights at the UN: Israel as the Only Violator, Anne Bayefsky

Last Friday, March 9, 2007 the UN wrapped up its annual session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women. Guess where they found a violation of women's rights? Among the hundreds of thousands of women who are dead, dying, mutilated, displaced or raped in Sudan? Among the million female migrant workers cowering in the basements of Saudi Arabian villas from the taskmasters who stole their passports the minute they got off the plane? Among the women stoned and hanged for "adultery" in Iran? The millions of women forcibly aborted in China? The thousands murdered or forced to commit suicide for the crime of "dishonoring" their fathers and brothers across the Arab and Muslim world?

If you guessed "none of the above," then you'll enjoy coming on down to the UN. The UN's lead body charged with promoting and protecting women's rights identifies only one state as violating the rights of women in the world today – Israel.(Violating the rights of Palestinian women.) The vote was 40 for and 2 against (the United States and Canada).

Germany, on behalf of the European Union, gave a one minute "explanation" excusing its affirmative vote. It said: "we express our deep concerns for the impact on all women in the region including the Israeli women" – although Germany did not insist such language be inserted in the resolution itself. For 60 seconds, the representative of the country where millions of Jewish women and girls were murdered en masse not so long ago took notice of the Jewish mothers and daughters who have fallen victim to terrorism in the Jewish state. This is the moral corruption that the UN breeds within democracies like Germany. In the United Nations, an institution owned and directed by the Organization of the Islamic Conference, the European Union grovels while the real abusers cheer.

I remember seeing this a few weeks ago.

Some of the countries to "vote" on this issue were:

China, where female babies are routinely murdered so that Mom can have a son;

United Arab Emirates, where women can't vote, can't have a jog, but can have their genitals mutilated;

Qatar, where women need gov't permission to marry non-Qataris, but can still have their genitals mutilated or die by "honor killing;"

Nigeria, where genital mutilation is common place;

and Iran, where women are hung for "promiscuity" or stoned to death for adultery.

Yup, that's a great crowd to pass judgement on women's rights.
