What PLO Arab Children Think of Women and Minorities

Palestinian Media Watch reports the results of a poll of PLO Arab high school students’ attitudes towards women and minorities.

Limiting Women’s Occupations

“73% [Grades 9 and 12] agree to limit women’s work to traditional occupations.”

“16% [Grade 12] support women’s right to work as taxi drivers.”

Limiting Women’s Freedom

“33% [Grade 12] believe that hitting a woman is permissible under specified circumstances.”

“23% [Grade 9] do not accept a woman has the right to chose a life companion freely.”

“32% [Grade 9] do not accept a woman’s right to chose her own clothes.”

Limiting Women’s Political Involvement

“52% [Grade 9] do not accept that women can have positions on a Municipal Local Council.”

“37% [Grade 9] do not accept women’s right to vote in elections.”

Children’s attitudes to different races, religion, sex and handicapped

“60% [Grade 12] expressed unwillingness to choose a friend who is not of their religion.”

“24% [Grade 12] do not welcome the idea of friendship with others, who have a different skin color.”

“51% [Grade 12] are not willing to choose a friend who is not of their sex.”

“9% [Grade 12] do not welcome the idea of friendship with people from other countries.”

“No more than 60% [Grade 9 and 12] favor handicapped rights in the areas of occupation, education, and presenting candidacy for elections.”

Hardly surprising, given the amount of suspicion and hate for other people that is rammed down these children’s throats.

So why do many feminists support the PLO Arab cause?
