Posted on 10/21/2005 9:29:30 AM PDT by Alouette
(IsraelNN.com) Amnesty Israel has blamed Israel for honor killings of Arab women who have been abused by other Arabs, according to Alan Dershowitz, a Jewish American author and Harvard University law professor. "Palestinian women...are victims of multiple violations as a result of the escalation of the conflict, Israel's policies and a system of norms, traditions and laws which treat women as unequal members of society," Amnesty reported.
Dershowitz wrote, "The report places substantial blame for these and other killings on--you guessed it--Israel...The report asserts that violence against women has 'increased' dramatically during the Israeli occupation and has reached 'an unprecedented level' as a result of the 'increased militarization of the Israeli-Palestinian confrontation.' It is as if the West Bank and Gaza Strip had been violence free for Palestinian women until the Israeli occupation."
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
Don't the Amnesty idiots know that it's Bush's fault?
you know, as a non jew, i am frankly amazed at how many jews hate judaism. dershowitz is just a known name. watch for people to buy this hook line and sinker. btw, alouette if you say jews dont hate judaism, then please tell me why some jews are always blaming israel for such things as this?
These people don't even attempt to be fair; and will kiss terrorist @ss whatever the cost.
Eff 'em running.
Thank God for Israel, otherwise it would be Bush's fault.
Read it again. ....Dershowitz isn't criticizing Israel, he's criticizing Amnesty Intl.
Anmesty and Medecins Sans Frontiers (Doctors without Borders).
These so called idealistic outfits have become totally politicized and need to be exposed. Need more proof?
or google "Palestinian Chronicles' MSF
(you may want to wait until AFTER lunch)
You have got to be kidding me!
Amnesty Israel has lost it's collective brain cell.
mr mojo, sorry, my mistake. but i just expect at this point for israel to be blamed for everything. there is no point in expecting israel to get a fair shake at all, it simply wont happen. thanks for pointing out my error.
Actually, when it comes to the middle east and defending Israel, Dershowitz is very conservative. I have my differences with the man but he is definitily not a terrorist lover or supporter, as are many east coast acedemics
Dershowitz is very pro-Israel.
MSM are vermin; Amnesty are cockroaches.
3. All of the above
I never doubted the truth of your report. Amnesty is well-known for its anti-semitism and anti-Americanism. This is the kind of stuff the MSM never, ever, covers. Leftwing organizations are almost always protected by the media. It is amazing how selective they are in their outrage.
However there are many leftist "Jews" who have made a career out of defaming Israel and Judaism. Rony Brison, Tommy Lapid, Uri Avnery, Shulamit Aloni, Ilan Pappe, Norman Finkelstein, Israel Shamir, the list goes on and on. These evil creatures hate their own people with even more poison than the worst of anti-Semites.
So now its Israel's fault that honor killings take place in the middle east?
I'm sure this will be annouced as front page news on Al-Jizzera today to go along with the story of Israeli rabbis sucking the blood out of palestinian children when the sun goes down.
