26. being abandoned....
Edited on Sun Nov-13-11 07:44 AM by pelsar
why did i write that?...because i find it rather disgusting that when the left is busy promoting Palestinians rights, in regards to israel, they seem to lose their voice when it comes to rights of Palestinian women and others within the PA/Hamas (which i think is more serious and longer lasting).

for instance, why wasn't her story printed on the "free gaza websites? ....where are they? thats what i mean by the west "abandoning them"

as far as Chesler goes, the lady thanked her for printing it, you don't have to agree with Chesler on anything, but you should be wondering why its was Chesler that ended up printing it and getting thanked for it....

Asmaa wrote to thank me for my recent piece which mentioned her plight

if you google Asmaa
at best you fine a single article motherjones....and another from Chesler

thats why i believe the women's rights of the Palestinians have been abandoned by the western left.
