In today’s news, the United Nations has once more proved how useless it has become.
The United Nations Commission On The Status Of Women accuses Israel of denying Palestinian women their rights.
The areas that the Palestinians have claimed for their own (if claimed can be the right word) are ruled by a fundamentalist government who do not believe in democracy. In a fundamentalist society, women are second class citizens. They have no rights.
Israel is a democratic government. We all saw the headlines earlier this week about Benjamin Netanyahu being re-elected. There is no law, either on or off the books that states what a woman can or cannot do. Golda Meir, a woman was Prime Minister from 1969-1974.
So please tell me how a democratic government where a woman was in charge can be accused of being anti-women. Unless, that is, the accusations are coming from the same neighbors who spread hate and lies and make no bones about wanting to destroy Israel.
