UN Women’s Rights Commission Is Just as Hateful as the Rest of the UN
From UN Watch:
The UN’s 45-member Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), meeting in its 2017 annual session, singled out Israel as the only country in the world subjected to a condemnatory resolution on women’s rights. Britain changed its vote from an abstention last year to a no vote this year.
The Jewish state was harshly and repeatedly condemned in the resolution for allegedly being the “major obstacle” for Palestinian women “with regard to their advancement, self-reliance, and integration in the development of their society.”
The resolution made no mention of how Palestinian women’s rights are impacted by Hamas, the Palestinian Authority, or their patriarchal society, nor were Palestinian victims of honor killings mentioned.
The UN commission ended the session by ignoring the world’s major abusers of women’s rights, including Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, and many others.
Worse, Saudi Arabia officially joined the CSW later that afternoon, joining Iran [which was already] a member.
The resolution that was passed is farcical. Perhaps the funniest part is this:
Urges the international community to continue to give special attention to the promotion and protection of the human rights of Palestinian women and girls and to intensify its measures to improve the difficult conditions being faced by Palestinian women and their families living under Israeli occupation.
By urging the world to give “special attention” to Palestinian women, they are saying that Palestinian women are more important than all the rest of the women in the world.
But only in terms of things that they can try to blame on Israel
What a joke.
