Denmark supports Iran and Saudi Arabia in criticizing Israel for women’s rights

15072020

The UN Economic and Social Council is meeting these days. On Tuesday, July 23, the Council adopted a resolution text presenting “Israel’s occupation” as “a major obstacle to Palestinian women and girls’ ability to fulfill their rights”. According to UN Watch, the resolution is the only one – out of 20 in this session – that criticizes individual countries for violating women’s rights. Among the 40 countries that voted for the resolution are also Norway and Denmark!

Here is the list of all the countries that voted in favor of the resolution:
Andorra, Angola, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Benin, Cambodia, China, Colombia, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Ethiopia, France, Ghana, India, Iran, Ireland, Japan, Kenya, Luxembourg, Mali, Malta, Morocco, Holland, Norway, Pakistan, Paraguay, Philippines, South Korea, Russia, St. Vincent, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uruguay, Venezuela and Yemen.

Only the United States and Canada voted against. Brazil, Cameroon, Germany, Jamaica, Mexico, Romania, Togo, Ukraine and the United Kingdom abstained.

-Resolution completely ignores the fact that Palestinian women’s rights are affected by their own authorities, the West Bank and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, nor does it mention that women are discriminated against in the patriarchal Palestinian community, writes UN Watch.

The UN absurdity has reached new heights in selecting Israel for women’s rights, while not saying anything about Iran, which holds women’s lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh in prison, Saudi Arabia, which traps and tortures women’s rights activists and exposes women to a strict guardianship law under men, or about Yemen refusing to treat women in the hospital without permission from a male relative, says Hillel Neuer, director of UN Watch.

Infinitum News has previously written that it is not Israel that is the problem of Palestinian women. On the other hand, it is Palestinian law that is causing problems. It confirmed a report from the World Bank earlier this year.

Palestinian women are not equal to men in law – this is the fundamental problem.
