More on Arab sexual harassment of female "peace activists"

A few weeks ago I blogged about an attempted rape of an American "peace activist" in the territories, and the pressure to hush it up.

JoeSettler at The Muqata has uncovered more facts - including that this has been a known phenomenon among the anti-Israel community for a while, to the point that they even held a workshop about it on how women activists should deal with the apparently inevitable fact of their being harassed or attacked while being hosted by their Arab friends.

The cognitive dissonance of these supposedly progressive activists working to help a very regressive society somehow doesn't seem to take hold.
