"UN Singles Out Israel as World’s Only Violator of Women’s Rights; Iran, Saudi Arabia & Yemen Among the Voters"
Apparently Israel is the only country in the world that violates womens rights.....what!?
I'm not going to stand here and defend Israel, this is not about their innocence.
Judge them on your own thread.
There logic had nothing to do with Israel's women as I understand it, but everything about Palestinian women.
[[GENEVA, July 24, 2019 — Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Pakistan were among members of the UN’s 54-nation economic and social council, a principal
organ of the world body, who voted to single out and condemn Israel yesterday as the only country in the world that violates women’s rights.]]
[[The Jewish state was harshly and repeatedly condemned in a resolution, adopted 40 to 2 with 9 abstentions and 3 absent (see breakdown below), for
allegedly being the “major obstacle” for Palestinian women “with regard to their advancement, self-reliance, and integration in the development
of their society.”]]
Again, I'm not defending Israel.
I am thumbing my nose at countries condemning another when they are some of the biggest violators of the very thing they are condemning.
