“As feminist scholars, activists, teachers, and public intellectuals,” the NWSA pontificates, “we recognize the interconnectedness of systemic forms of oppression. In the spirit of this intersectional perspective, we cannot overlook the injustice and violence, including sexual and gender-based violence, perpetrated against Palestinians and other Arabs in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, within Israel and in the Golan Heights, as well as the colonial displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians during the 1948 Nakba.”
In February 2014 the Associated Press reported that:
Twenty-six women were slain by relatives in the West Bank and Gaza in 2013, twice as many as the year before, according to official figures. The rise stems from…ongoing leniency for those killing in the name of “family honor” and social acceptance of violence against women, women’s rights activists said….
They urged Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to repeal sections of a penal code that allows for short sentences of at most a few years for the perpetrators….
In Gaza, the longest sentence has been three years….
Also over on the left, Hispanic activists have denounced Rubio and Cruz as “traitors to their race” – the only avenue of attack left of these Democrats since their own party’s presidential slate is comprised solely of old white people.
I’m sure the NAACP will, join in by going after Ben Carson, assuming they haven’t already done so (I don’t pay attention to what those colored people do).
