Woman rights have been jeopardized in the past. A sad, but real, example is the debate that has taken place in middle-ages Europe, a debate in which women were not seen by many western philosophers, then, as humans!
As time passes on, women still suffer some massive discrimination! Almost everywhere in the world! BUT, NOT in Israel!! Because, for an Israeli soldier, a Palestinian woman is equally targeted as Palestinian men. They both should be murdered – some Zionist Rabbis believe- no discrimination exists!
Tracing the modern history of occupied Palestine, one can clearly see that the Palestinian woman not only has been a mother or a wife of a martyr or an internee, but also a martyr or an internee herself.
Probably, the first thing that comes to our minds when talking about the agony of Palestinian women are the dozens of martyrs and injured innocents. For instance, hundreds of innocent women were murdered by the Zionist war machine in the late years of the Palestinian uprising (Intifada). Thousands of them were wounded in the same period.
Although our women have been suffering, their struggle can never reach an end soon! this is true because, International Woman Rights Movements throughout the world do not seem to play their role in this struggle.
In fact, it's as simple as this; in order for this struggle to stay alive, substantial International and Islamic Support should see light and reach Palestinian women!
Hopefully one day soon, Western Human and Women Rights Organizations will walk their talk!
