Top violator of women's rights around the world? It's Israel says UN

Guess who is the number one violator of women’s rights in the world today?  Israel.  Violating the rights of Palestinian women.

At least that is the view of the UN’s top women’s rights body, the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).  CSW ends its annual meeting on Friday, March 20 by condemning only one of the 193 UN member states for violating women’s rights – Israel.

Not Syria. Where government forces routinely employ rape and other sexual violence and torture against women as a tactic of war. Where in 2014 the Assad regime starved, tortured and killed at least 24,000 civilians, and three million people – mostly women and children – are refugees. 

Not Saudi Arabia. Where women are physically punished if not wearing compulsory clothing, are almost entirely excluded from political life, cannot drive, cannot travel without a male relative, receive half the inheritance of their brothers, and where their testimony counts for half that of a man’s.

Not Sudan.  Where domestic violence is not prohibited.  There is no minimum age for “consensual” sex.  The legal age of marriage for girls is ten. 88% of women under 50 have undergone female genital mutilation. And women are denied equal rights in marriage, inheritance and divorce.

Not Iran. Where every woman who registered as a presidential candidate in the last election was disqualified.  “Adultery” is punishable by death by stoning.  Women who fight back against rapists and kill their attackers are executed. The constitution bars female judges. And women must obtain the consent of their husbands to work outside the home.

In fact, not only is there no possibility that the UN Commission on the Status of Women will criticize Iran, Iran is an elected member of CSW.  Sudan – whose president has been indicted for genocide and crimes against humanity – is currently a CSW Vice-Chair.


  1. The United Nations issued a statement against Jews. Ho hum. Take a bunch of corrupt people who hate Jews. Put them in a room. Give them the power to make a proclamation. I'd have to be crazy, I think, to expect them to be fair, honest, and balanced.

  2. Problem, is that people that people that have no previous bias against Israel will accept the report as the definitive word. If Israel cared about it's reputation, it would invest some more money in public relations, as opposed to that pitiful Hasbara they have now

  3. Wrong "Humble"!!!

    The problem is that the left is already an enemy of the jews, but people like you believe belonging to the left is (quoting "Humble" from last week) כי היא חכמתכם ובינם לעיני העמים?!?

    The left today is a worldwide Web of jurnalists and academics that are united in their hate for Jews and Isreal, and opolagists for Obama and Muslims.

    We must realize where the TRUTH and our friends are, and support the right!!

    Netanyahu gets it, hopefully you will too before it's too late .

  4. Thank you for remembering my previous post. You can consider that post as a reply to your current comment also.

    My political leaning happens to be right of the center (yes I know that everyone thinks that their belief's are mainstream). However, I don't subscribe to the view of the extreme right wingers that anyone that's not extreme right is left. You (and too many frum people) listen to Rush Limbaugh too much.

    And where does his humility take this information from? Is this type of prophecy something that his humility engages in often?


  6. I got the humility shtoch the first time. Not necessary to waste everyone's time and repeat it in every post.

    Huh? Did you get the message?

    1) How do you know who listens to Rush Limbaugh?

    2) Specifically which opinion of weluvtruth do you disagree with?

    3) Clearly explain what it is you disagree with.

    Instead of doing the above, you arrogantly dismiss the valid point about the presumptuous arrogance in your post.

    and you even continue with it...
    I guess I must have touched on a sensitive issue. Well if I did, too bad.

    My, my. Are we projecting our defeated and deflated egos upon others?!
