Palestinian Arab Honor Killings Increase 100%

Somehow we are expected to believe that the people who can’t stop killing their own wives and daughters will make peace with Israel.
According to a senior official in the PA Ministry of Women’s Affairs, there has been a 100% rise in the number of Palestinian women murdered in the name of “family honor.” The official also complained that PA leader Abbas has not fulfilled his pledge to change PA law, which currently protects the murderers of women who were killed because of so-called “family honor”
PA law follows the clauses in Jordanian law that are lenient toward perpetrators of crimes such as “honor killings”.
The King of Jordan had to fight his own parliament over the law and the West Bank Muslims are if anything even more backward than their fellow Jordanians.
But I blame Israel. If the Israelis weren’t making it so difficult to kill Jews, there would be fewer honor killings. Now you might think that I’m being sarcastic, but no such luck.
An earlier survey (2011) by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics corroborated the women’s concerns. It found that approximately 37 per cent of Palestinian women in both the West Bank and Gaza had experienced physical or sexual abuse by their husbands in the previous 12 months. A larger 51 per cent in Gaza reported violence within the household directed against at least one member (including children).
The only answer to the suffering of the people of Gaza, including its neglected women, is for the international community to hold Israel accountable…
You certainly can’t hold the wife-beaters and killers or their Muslim government and Islamic law accountable.
It must be Israel’s fault.
