8. Palestenian feminist turns to conservative blogger...
what a surprise....a Palestinian Feminist in gaza it appears had to turn to a conservative western blogger to get her story out.....

An Interview with Asmaa Al-Ghoul

Asmaa Al-Ghoul is a Palestinian secular feminist who has written poignant, heartbreaking pieces about honor killings and womens rights in Gaza. Last month, Asmaa quit her job at Al Ayaam because her subject matter got her into trouble at work. She is also the journalist who was arrested over the weekend by Hamass morality police, ostensibly for laughing immoderately and for immodest clothing at the beach.

I believe the women's movement in gaza is a bit more advanced than the gays...but the problem remains the same...being abandoned by the west progressives to fend for themselves, in this case she went to a conservative jew to get her story out.....

Gaza needs liberal and secular people to defend liberty. For this reason, I have never wanted to leave. But after what happened, I am thinking of leaving.
