Several Palestinian clans have rejected The Convention of the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, a move widely seen as a revolt against the PA.

Critics of the treaty claim that it goes against Arab and Islamic norms and teachings. “This treaty is unacceptable to Arabs and Muslims,” remarked Palestinian activist Abu Ghassan Shaheen. “It goes against our religion and traditions.”

On Saturday, leaders of large Palestinian clans in Hebron called on the PA to withdraw from the treaty. They also called for banning feminist groups from entering Palestinian schools. The clan leaders expressed opposition to the PA’s recent decision to ban child marriage, in compliance with CEDAW.

Peaceful coexistence with 7th century barbarians isn’t possible.

Stop pretending that it is.

Shocked!!! I am so shocked by this piece of news! I guess the religion of peace doesn’t apply for women.

“This treaty is unacceptable to Arabs and Muslims,”

Funny, Arabs and mudslimes are unacceptable to civilized nations.

Liberal media and women's rights groups voice their outrage in 3, 2, 1...

0.3, 0.2, 0.1...

0.03, 0.02, 0.01...

CLANS?
Since when did Arabs have clans?
They've always been TRIBAL, not clannish.

If they had had clans they'd be using bagpipes. :o)

SJWs vs Islamists? Unlike many other here I’m not so quick to take the side of the SJWs. I can understand why they wouldn’t want to let feminists infiltrate their society. Personally let’s step aside and let them hash it out among themselves.

These tribals have first cousin-marriage rates of over 50%. Its a main reason why they are so mentally ill.
