On Wednesday the UN once again disgraced itself with this despicable vote. It showed why this pro-jihad and vehemently anti-Semitic organization should be shut down. It showed once again that the UN is in-fact an anti-women’s rights organization and anti-human rights organization, since it consistently aligns with some of the worst human rights violators on the planet.
The UN’s economic and social councils voted to condemn Israel as “the only country in the world that violates women’s rights,” despite Israel being the safest country in the Middle East for women, and one of the safest countries for women anywhere in the world.
Israel is a country were women obviously enjoy full human rights. A country were women have high positions in the government, who sit on the high court, who head multi-national corporations, who have prominent positions in the military, who fly fighter jets, and who head universities. A country were women proudly compete in international athletic competitions, and a country whose women are among the most gorgeous and feminine in the world.
Contrast Israel’s record on women rights, with the countries who voted to single out Israel as a women’s rights violator at the UN. Countries such as Iran, Pakistan, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia. Countries whose women have next to no human rights, and countries were gender apartheid and enslavement takes place. #EndtheUN
UN Singles Out Israel as World’s Only Violator of Women’s Rights; Iran, Saudi Arabia & Yemen Among the Voters
By UN Watch, July 25, 2019:
GENEVA, July 24, 2019 — Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Pakistan were among members of the UN’s 54-nation economic and social council, a principal organ of the world body, who voted to single out and condemn Israel yesterday as the only country in the world that violates women’s rights.
The Jewish state was harshly and repeatedly condemned in a resolution, adopted 40 to 2 with 9 abstentions and 3 absent (see breakdown below), for allegedly being the “major obstacle” for Palestinian women “with regard to their advancement, self-reliance, and integration in the development of their society.”
Out of 20 items on the UN Economic and Social Council’s 2018-2019 agenda, only one — Item No. 16 against Israel — focuses on condemning a specific country. All the other focus areas concern global topics such as disaster relief assistance and the use of science and technology for development.
The resolution completely ignores how Palestinian women’s rights are impacted by their own governing authorities—the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, and Hamas in Gaza—nor does it mention how women are discriminated against within patriarchal Palestinian society.
Moreover, ECOSOC concluded its annual session by ignoring the world’s worst abusers of women’s rights, refusing to pass a single resolution on the situation of women in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, or DR Congo, all of which ranked in the top ten worst countries in last year’s Global Gender Gap Report, produced by the World Economic Forum.
Hillel Neuer, Executive Director of UN Watch, condemned the delegates’ abuse of the UN body as a forum to target Israel.
