On 25th January this year, in an AntiSemitismWatch special report, highlighted how the United Nations has become a bastion for all the is bad in the world; rife with greed, corruption and inherent anti-Semitism.
In its latest demonstration of its appalling, biased judgement, a UN report has blamed Israel for domestic violence perpetrated against Palestinian women.
Danny Danon, the Israeli Ambassador to the UN has demanded that Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon revise the document, which was disseminated by his office ahead of International Women’s Day.
Issued for the 60th session of the Commission on the Status of Women to be held March 14-24, the report highlights the situation of Palestinian women for the period from October 1st 2014 to September 30th 2015.
It suggests that “overcrowded living conditions and a lack of privacy” in Palestinian refugee camps causes “psychological distress among camp residents” which combined with “the unstable political and security situation and discriminatory gender stereotypes and norms” leads to this type of violence.
“Specifically for women and girls, this overcrowding limits their mobility, privacy and access to recreational spaces.”
The report on Palestinian women is expected to receive significant attention during the conference. This, Israel’s permanent mission to the UN said, will create an absurd situation in which Israel is the only UN member-state which will be singled out for its treatment of women.
Also highly significant, but not unusual for the UN, is that of the 13 documents issued by them in advance of the conference, only this one deals with women from a specific “nation.”
Perhaps global warming us next on the agenda for the UN to lay at the feet of Israel?
