Last week I reported that the Supreme Fatwa Council, which is part of the Palestinian government, issued a statement opposing the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) as a violation of Islamic Sharia law.

The PLO acceded to CEDAW without any reservations in 2014 when they were in a frenzy to sign every UN convention they could find to pretend to be a real state. As I reported, they never actually enacted any laws to provide for equal treatment of women. Their signing CEDAW and the other conventions was a complete sham.

After the Fatwa Council issued its statement against equal rights for women, do you think there was a backlash by Palestinian feminists? Of course not. On the contrary!

A group of tribes, under the umbrella of the Supreme Commission for Tribal Affairs for the southern governorates, affirmed that any agreement that contradicts what Allah has prescribed will not be accepted by Palestinian society. (The photo of the meeting does not show any women.)

"The Islamic Sharia is above the law, and above any political commitment, or any commitment to international laws or treaties," the commission said in a statement.

The statement said that there are articles in CEDAW related to inheritance, adultery, homosexuals, and Muslim women who marry non-Muslims. "These provisions contradict the Palestinian national identity, our Islamic religion, customs and traditions, and we are not obligated to apply them in our society."

I have not seen any articles against the Fatwa Council's view of CEDAW nor from this group of tribes. Miftah, which styles itself as a feminist NGO, has not yet said a word as far as I can see.

The Left that supports Palestinian nationhood is supporting a misogynist, anti-gay, bigoted society. And it is not like any of these organizations are actually working to fix it. They are completely silent on these issues.

Groups that claim that they care about Palestinian rights don't seem to give a damn about actual rights for real Palestinian women, or gays, or Christians, or any other oppressed group within Palestinian society and under Palestinian rule.

Which means that they don't really give a damn about Palestinians or their rights.

They are hypocrites, and the only thing that animates them is the antisemitism of opposing the Jewish state rather than lifting a finger to help Palestinians.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
