Finland med och fördömer Israel i FN igen

 FN:s organ för ekonomiska och sociala frågor (UN Economic and Social Council) tillrättavisade Israel för att Israel  är ett hinder för de palestinska kvinnornas rättigheter.

Rådet fördömde bara ett land vid namn, Israel.

Finland vars utrikespolitik när det kommer till frågor om Israel verkar styras direkt av mörkrets makter röstade för resolutionen.

U.N. rebukes only Israel for violating women’s rights (UN Watch)

GENEVA, September 18, 2020 — The Islamic Republic of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Belarus were among members of the UN’s 54-nation Economic and Social Council, a principal organ of the world body, who voted on September 14th to single out Israel as the only country in the world to be rebuked by the council this year for allegedly violating women’s rights.

"In a resolution adopted 43 to 3, with 8 abstentions (see breakdown below), the Jewish state was accused of being  a “major obstacle” for Palestinian women “with regard to the fulfillment of their rights, and their advancement, self-reliance and integration in the development of their society.”

The council declared that “women and girls” are impacted by the “continuing systematic violation of the human rights of the Palestinian people by Israel, the occupying Power.”

The resolution in its preamble made global references to “violence against women and girls in all its different forms and manifestations worldwide” and to the need to “eliminate all forms of violence against women” in “all regions of the world,” however Israel was the only country held up for criticism.

Cuba, Syria, North Korea and Venezuela were among the countries who sponsored the resolution via the Group of 77, a bloc today made up of 134 states, and this year represented by Guyana.

Out of 20 items on the UN Economic and Social Council’s 2020 agenda, only one — Item No. 16 against Israel — targeted a specific country. All the other focus areas concern global topics such as disaster relief assistance and the use of science and technology for development.

The resolution turns a blind eye to how Palestinian women’s rights are impacted by their own governing authorities — the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, and Hamas in Gaza. Nor does it make any criticism or any reference at all as to how women and girls are discriminated against within patriarchal Palestinian society. On the contrary, the resolution praises what it calls “Palestinian initiatives at the legislative, administrative and security levels to advance women’s rights.”..."

Results of the vote to rebuke Israel on women’s rights:

43 YES: Angola, Armenia, Bangladesh, Belarus, Benin, Botswana, China, Colombia, Congo, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Gabon, Ghana, India, Iran (Islamic Republic of), Ireland, Japan, Kenya, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malawi, Mali, Malta, Mexico , Morocco, Nicaragua, Norway, Pakistan, Panama, Paraguay, Philippines, Republic of Korea , Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sudan, Thailand, Turkmenistan, Uruguay.

3 NO: United States, Canada, Australia

8 ABSTAIN: Brazil, Germany, Jamaica, Montenegro, Netherlands, Switzerland, Togo, Ukraine

Palestinska myndighetens direktiv för fredagbönen

 Direktiv från palestinska religionsministeriet:

PA: Beware “alliance with the Jews… obedience to the Jews”  (PMW)

"The Palestinian Authority exposed its true essence as a Jew-hating antisemitic body by condemning the peace agreements signed this week between Israel, the UAE, and Bahrain, because it is an “alliance with the Jews.” Not only is this what the PA believes but this hate message was disseminated by the PA Ministry of Religious Affairs to all mosques in the PA, as part of the instructions to preachers on what to say in their sermons to be given in the PA on Friday.

The weekly instruction sheet disseminated by the PA Ministry of Religion delineates the content to be preached in all sermons in PA mosques, and is signed by Husam Abu Al-Rub, the Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs. For tomorrows sermons, the PA Imams have been instructed to condemn the peace agreement signed this past week and to condemn the Arab countries for signing. There are nine short messages that are to be included in the sermon and this is the first one:..."

“In the name of All Merciful Allah

The State of Palestine

The [PA] Ministry of Religious Affairs

Friday sermon Sept. 18, 2020

[Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs] Husam Abu Al-Rub

‘And do not incline toward those who do wrong’ [Quran 11:113, Sahih International translation]

The danger of normalization

  • There is nothing that harms Palestine and its holy sites more than making an alliance with the Jews, being connected to them, and relying on them.
  • Normalization with the Zionist entity is high treason against Palestine, Jerusalem, the blood of the Martyrs, and the suffering of the prisoners.
  • Normalization with the Zionist entity is one of the expressions of sanctimoniousness and hypocrisy and accepting the oppressor and his tyranny.
  • Obedience to the Jews and being dragged after them will lead the nation to weakness, lawlessness, humiliation, and shame.
  • Concentrating all the energies to reject normalization and relations with the Zionist entity.
  • The believer – distress and disasters strengthen him in his faith, confidence, and determination.
  • The source of hope – after Allah – is in endurance and resolve on the rights and principles facing the oppression of the enemies and the abandonment by the brothers and friends.
  • Calling on the Arab and Islamic peoples and the free people of the world to stand with Palestine in order to bring down the agreement of humiliation and treason by the UAE and Bahrain.
  • Calling for unity and unifying the ranks in order to deal with the dangers threatening the Palestinian cause.
