"Women's Rights at the UN: Israel as the Only Violator
by Anne Bayefsky

"Last Friday, March 9, 2007 the UN wrapped up its annual session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women. Guess where they found a violation of women's rights? Among the hundreds of thousands of women who are dead, dying, mutilated, displaced or raped in Sudan? Among the million female migrant workers cowering in the basements of Saudi Arabian villas from the taskmasters who stole their passports the minute they got off the plane? Among the women stoned and hanged for "adultery" in Iran? The millions of women forcibly aborted in China? The thousands murdered or forced to commit suicide for the crime of "dishonoring" their fathers and brothers across the Arab and Muslim world?

"If you guessed "none of the above," then you'll enjoy coming on down to the UN. The UN's lead body charged with promoting and protecting women's rights identifies only one state as violating the rights of women in the world today – Israel.(Violating the rights of Palestinian women.) The vote was 40 for and 2 against (the United States and Canada).

"Germany, on behalf of the European Union, gave a one minute " explanation" excusing its affirmative vote. It said: "we express our deep concerns for the impact on all women in the region including the Israeli women" – although Germany did not insist such language be inserted in the resolution itself. For 60 seconds, the representative of the country where millions of Jewish women and girls were murdered en masse not so long ago took notice of the Jewish mothers and daughters who have fallen victim to terrorism in the Jewish state. This is the moral corruption that the UN breeds within democracies like Germany. In the United Nations, an institution owned and directed by the Organization of the Islamic Conference, the European Union grovels while the real abusers cheer."

outrageous accusation! EVERYBODY must know that women's rights are being violated ALL OVER the Planet!!! I just read that Israel was blamed as the nr One Nation for Women Sex-Slave Trading... and you know what, Israelis might do their part, so to speak, but no, no and no!... see: http://www.raidersnewsnetwork.com/full.php?news=4269

I really don't buy OTHER Nations PIASNESS in these issues at all! This a clear Machiavellian "Divide & Conquer" methodology in action to foment anger , hatred, vengefulness among peoples to then start attacking each other in their justified self righteousness, now that the Spotlight is away from their own "dirty laundry"!...
UN, the BIG Joke!.... I feel your pain of injustice forced on "you" in this particular Issue! It is TRULY a WORLD-WIDE Offence, not just Israeli, and it needs to be dealt with every single day by every one whenever opportunity arises.
Of course, blaming the other, attacking etc is not the way to go: BUT PUT THE WORLD WIDE SPOTLIGHT ON ALL Nations about this Sad State of Affairs vis a vis half of world's ( grown-up)Population; the Women!
THANKS, Bruce, for bringing Attention to this issue!
