UN commission blames Israel for plight of Palestinian women Watch

    Israel has been out of the news for a while now, time to bring it back

    As has become routine in the United Nations, Israel alone was singled out for condemnation, while Syria, Iran, Venezuela and others were left alone.

    The resolution stressed the quest for equality and reaffirmed "that the Israeli occupation remains the major obstacle for Palestinian women with regard to their advancement, self-reliance and integration in the development of their society.''

    The resolution, sponsored by the Palestinians and South Africa, was adopted by a vote of 27-2 with 13 abstentions. The United States and Israel voted against it and European Union members abstained (pathetic!)

    The Israeli ambassador accused the Palestinians of mistreating women, noting that "honor killings in the Palestinian Authority are a matter of daily occurrence, and employment of women stands at only 17 percent.'' That compares with 70 percent of men. ''Of the 193 member states in this institution, dozens slaughter innocent civilians and impose discriminatory laws that marginalize women and yet they all get a free pass,'' he said, noting that the commission includes "some of the worst violators of human rights like Iran and Sudan.''

    Would this be the same UN Human Rights commission that is (or at least was until recently but still is, I think) chaired by Saudi Arabia and so nobody pays any attention to anything they say unless they have a pre-existing hatred for Israel?

    I could not care less about the plight of Palestinians. Israelis are not the ones destroying European cultures and blowing us up. Israelis are not responsible for rotherham and rape on a mass scale, Israelis are not Europes biggest security risk, Israelis are not turning para of Europe into no go zones
