But Israel is Evil! Didn’t You Get the Memo?
But Israel is Evil! Didn’t You Get the Memo?
Last month, the United Nations chose to once again target the tiny nation of Israel for allegedly violating “women’s rights” with its alleged “occupation” of “Palestinian and Syrian lands.” In its condemnation, the UN’s Economic and Social Council, which has had such human rights abusers as China, Russia, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and currently boasts such stellar members as Egypt, Pakistan, and Iran (I’m not even kidding), accuses Israel of violating the rights of Palestinian women and girls. Israel is evil, sayeth the UN.
…the Israeli occupation remains a major obstacle for Palestinian women, [The Permanent Observer for the State of Palestine] said, calling on Israel, the occupying Power, to cease all measures contrary to international law. The draft resolution also calls for urgent measures to ensure the safety and protection of the Palestinian civilian population in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and urges the international community to give special attention to the promotion and protection of the human rights of Palestinian women and girls.
It’s pretty rich that a nation such as Iran that routinely violates the rights of women and prosecutes and physically assaults them for something as trivial as not wearing a schmata on their head would pretend to give a flying rat’s fuck about the rights of women.
Women are assaulted on the streets of Iran for a loose hijab, but Israel is evil.
The UN has never been known for its objectivity when it comes to Israel, and when its so-called “Human Rights Council” includes such countries as Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela, its report condemning Israel for violating women’s rights is absurd, hypocritical, and to be ignored by anyone with a shred of morality and half a functioning brain.
The resolution calls the supposed “Israeli occupation” a “major obstacle for Palestinian women” – women who live in a culture where a man can divorce his wife for any reason, but women can request divorce only under certain circumstances. But Israel is evil.
Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and their HAMAS pals launch rocket attacks against Israel in Gaza with no provocation other than they hate the EVIL JOOS, sparking a conflict that results in the deaths of several women and children in Gaza. PIJ admits that one of their rockets misfired and killed an infant and her pregnant mother in Gaza. But Israel is evil.
Israeli hospitals treat Gaza patients and provide lifesaving technologies such as dialysis, while hospitals in Gaza, Egypt, and Syria do squat. But Israel is evil.
In certain countries – ones that sit on UN human rights groups – a woman can’t leave the house until she wraps herself up in a sack and hides any semblance of a body part. But Israel is evil.
Israelis arm women and treat them as equals in their military. Palestinians cover them up, don’t allow them to leave the house without a sack over their entire bodies, and limit their opportunities for something as simple as a beauty salon visit. But Israel is evil.
Palestinian Arabs who reside in lands Israel has annexed are voting members of the Israeli society. But Israel is evil.
The UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) routinely funnels money to the terrorists of HAMAS, and our supposed pals in the EU and Turkey, as well as Pakistan, Cyprus, and the Holy See are donating millions of dollars to UNRWA and giving more and more as the Palestinian population in the area grows. But Israel is evil.
It’s instructive to me as well, that women claimed in 2010 that they haven’t seen much pressure against women since HAMAS took over in Gaza, but yet they were concerned that the closure of Gaza will breed religious extremism. What does that tell you about how much they trust HAMAS to respect their rights without international scrutiny?
HAMAS funds and supports the kidnapping and murder of Israeli teenagers, but Israel is evil.
Israel collects roughly $127 million in customs duties levied on goods destined for Palestinian markets and that transit through Israeli ports, and then transfers the money to the Palestinians. In return the Palestinians give money to the families of suicide bombers, and Israel has finally had enough, so they’re withholding some of the funds. So the PA, sets $330 million aside in its budget to pay “security prisoners,” many of whom are terrorists, martyrs, and their families and claims it will continue doing so even if it has to spend its “last penny” to do so, even at the expense of resources that legitimate governments spend on infrastructure and security. But Israel is evil.
Women and girls are isolated by their families in Gaza, aren’t even allowed to be seen without a veil by a male who is not a family member, and yearn to go elsewhere to just be allowed to be themselves. But Israel is evil.
So what is the UN’s solution for all these evils that Israel is allegedly perpetrating on the Palestinian women? Give the Palestinians more money and open up Gaza so any terrorist can slip by and murder Jews.
The Council then resolved Israel should address these issues by complying with the 1994 agreement signed with the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO): fully opening Palestinian access to border crossings in the Gaza Strip, as well as restoring and replacing “civilian property, vital infrastructure, agricultural lands and government institutions that have been damaged or destroyed due to its military operations,” according to a UN press release.
PIJ and HAMAS start hostilities, in violation of an informal ceasefire, rain hundreds of rockets on Israel, and kill their own women and children in the process, but Israel should replace all the damage these swine caused and open up border crossings to terrorists, because if they don’t…
…then obviously Israel is evil.
