Several Palestinian clans in the West Bank have announced their rejection of The Convention of the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), an international treaty adopted in 1979 by the United Nations General Assembly.

The clans also criticized the Palestinian Authority for committing to CEDAW and called for banning feminist groups operating in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Critics of the treaty claim that it goes against Arab and Islamic norms and teachings. “This treaty is unacceptable to Arabs and Muslims,” remarked Palestinian activist Abu Ghassan Shaheen. “It goes against our religion and traditions.”

On Saturday, leaders of large Palestinian clans in Hebron called on the PA to withdraw from the treaty. They also called for banning feminist groups from entering Palestinian schools.


I wonder if Rashida Talibs sick grandmother was part of these clans.

They likely saw what's going on in Europe and got spooked. I remember that being a thing with Jordan when they had that Lesbian TERF war in the UK.

Hard to spread changes when your own countries are unstable, that's not a good impression on the people you are wanting to reform.

what is up with he anti-palestine threads..maybe i should start doing anti-israel threads...



well they did steal their land..
That entire piece of land was designated for the Jews by the Brits and UN after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. And after the Arabs, that surround Israel, attacked them they should have taken more.

You mean Persia?

I have respect for Persians, they did allow the Jews to return to Jerusalem to rebuild their temple. Thank you Artaxerxes. I should hope those Persians today remember the man and how he helped out the Jews.

Its a shame to see a 2700 year old culture be mostly decimated by the recently arrived(in comparison) Muslims. At minimum the Persians should go back to their 6th BCE history and follow in Artaxerxes steps and follow the decree of him Cyrus and Darius and support the Jewish presence in Jerusalem. Its the least the Persians could do after decimating the 2700 yearl old Jewish culture.

Israel has given enough land *back to the so called made up 'Palestinians' which was legally won land in a war that was quite literally started by all the surrounding Arab nations.

I suggest you shut up as you don't know shit. It's embarrassing.

*Which was given for peace and taken over by Hamas for terrorism.

**Which Israel never needed to do as they don't owe them shit.

Still waiting for all the western country anti-discrimination advocates to travel to the middle east and preach, protest and sue people for sexist views, in order to help the millions of women trapped behind archaic laws.

try understanding the conversation first.
I guess it's not conquest if you ethnically cleanse your own country. Anyway I don't know why you think China is a good example, do you really think they have a peaceful history?

But while he did stab Bennett's wife and two-year-old son, he didn't kill them.

This, according to senior Fatah official Abbas Zaki, is reflective of Palestinian values, according to a report by watchdog organization Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

Speaking in a video uploaded to Fatah's Facebook page, Zaki said: "When the children of Palestine felt a while ago that the [PA] leadership didn’t know what to do… Muhannad Halabi went out with a knife… He succeeded in infiltrating Jerusalem and killed a rabbi [Nehemiah Lavi]… When he saw… a small child – a woman and her son – he did not kill him. This is from Almighty Allah. For we don't kill people as we please. There are values, customs."



So nice of em to spare the mother and child and only kill the Rabbi.

Likewise, the watchdog pointed out Dalal Mughrabi – who murdered 37 Israelis including 12 children – has since been honored, with the PA naming six schools, numerous sporting events and cultural centers for children in her name.

Following this trend, Halabi was also honored by the PA, with a street named after him and a monument in his honor being erected in Abu Qash and a street being named after him.

This is what the Swedish female government officials looked like when visiting Teheran a few years back. This is the same government that prides themselves on being "the world's first feminist government".
