Dear UN: New Photos of Real Arab Girls

Oh my goodness, in the never ending what will the UN come up with next, Israel is now accused of abusing Palestinian women’s rights.  The Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) ended its annual meeting on March 20th, by condemning only one of the 193 UN member states for violating women’s rights – Israel.

As they were busy huddled drafting their resolution, a woman in Afghanistan was murdered by a mob – as police watched.

One has to ask, what about the status of women in Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, or Nigeria, where thousands of women and children have been massacred and raped?

No problem – that does not involve Israel.

While the esteemed UN delegates were busy working on their proclamation against Israel in rooms far from Jerusalem, an Arab woman was reelected to Knesset – the same woman who shouted about Israel being apartheid.

Life in Israel may not always be as idyllic as this photo of an Arab couple picnicking in Teddy Park,

and some women and children may have a male escort on outings to the park.

Israel apartheid?

But, three Arab girls were out alone at night in Mamilla Mall in Jerusalem – and that is not unusual.

Women in Saudi Arabia still cannot drive a car or go out alone.

But in Jerusalem, an Arab woman can go shopping alone – day or night.

Not only can an Arab woman drive a car, I saw a women wearing a hijab who was an Israeli driving instructor. Now that is a big deal!

Young girls can walk through Mamilla Mall at night, knowing that they are free to stroll along safely.

Really UN delegates, have you ever really been in Israel and seen what is truth?

If “Palestinian” women are abused, it is because their “Palestinian leaders” have failed them.


Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last ten years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
