JNS.org – Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon has demanded that the United Nations revise a report that blames Israel for domestic abuse against Palestinian women.

Against the backdrop of International Women’s Day, which is being marked on March 8, the UN Commission on the Status for Women issued the report for its March 14-24 session. The document states that “overcrowded living conditions and a lack of privacy” in Palestinian refugee camps causes “psychological distress among camp residents.” Combine this with “the unstable political and security situation and discriminatory gender stereotypes and norms,” and the end result is domestic violence, the report claims.

“This report is a distortion of the truth and it should be amended immediately,” Danon wrote in a letter to the UN.

A similar resolution, in which Israel is the only UN member state singled out for its treatment of women, was approved last year by the UN Commission on the Status for Women.

  • Did Danon really say “Jewish state” or are you just making that up?
