Perfect. Just perfect. And the American feminist leadership appoints sharia enforcer Linda Sarsour to their senior ranks.
“Palestinian” Leaders Call for Ban on Feminism
Palestinian Leaders Call for Ban on Feminism

At a general meeting on Saturday, Palestinian leaders rejected an agreement to end discrimination against women they had signed in 2014.
The Palestinian Watan news agency reported that at the meeting in Hebron, tribal leaders called for the rejection of the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), an international treaty adopted in 1979 by the United Nations General Assembly and signed by the Palestinian Authority in 2014. Parties to CEDAW are required to repeal laws that discriminate against women and protect women from discrimination and violence, enshrining the full equality of women and men before the law.
The Palestinian leaders at the meeting also called for a general bam against feminist organizations.
“The Palestinian Authority must withdraw and cancel this agreement and call for the closure of all the feminist institutions and those supporting them in Palestine. There are hundreds of them in Palestine and we call for the cancellation of their rental agreements.
“Anyone who rents [premises] to them is a partner in [their] crimes,” the statement continued.
They also called for feminist groups to be denied access to schools and told judges not to apply a recently passed PA law raising the minimum age of marriage to 18 for both genders.
They also warned the media against covering activities of feminist organizations and to “support the Palestinian people and tribes instead”.
Mahmoud Habash, an advisor to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on religious affairs said on Saturday, “In the State of Palestine, even though we’ve signed the CEDAW treaty, we reject anything not in accord with our religion, heritage, and values.”
A report by NGO Monitor less than one year after the PA signed the CEDAW agreement indicated that the Palestinians had no intention to fulfill their stated obligations.
