UN partners in campaign to present female terrorist to Arab world as role model

I could have headlined this one as "your tax dollars at work," but I just did that in the last post.

The UN is participating in a campaign to present 'women's issues' to the Arab world. As part of that campaign, a clip was broadcast on more than 50 television stations in Arab countries presenting "model women." One of the women presented - as a model of 'martyrdom' and 'victory over enmity' - was Dalal al-Mughrabi, who led the terror attack that killed the largest number of Israelis ever killed in one attack (37). It's known as the 'Coastal Road attack' and occurred in 1978. Al-Mughrabi was also killed in the attack and is frequently presented as a 'martyr' by the 'Palestinian Authority.'

Let's go to the videotape.

The website explains that "women are essential partners and important actors for the development of society," and mentions that one of the campaign's objectives is "to bring about distinguished women samples that have offered great services to society."

It further states that "societies signal distinguished samples of personalities with pride, and reflect the spot lights on them in order for them [Arab women] to take an inspirational course for generations to come. Arabic societies like other societies, highly appreciate figures where great virtues of giving transcend in different fields, and there is nothing greater than distinguished women in our societies, as they are great models to be followed by the old or the young, these women can be the working farmers, the teachers, the doctors, the engineers, the scientists, the lawyers, the activists in all fields whether social or political, they are the ones to sacrifice, and in all of their cases, they are the mothers!"

If you go to the campaign's home page, click on "People behind the campaign" and scroll down, you will find the UN agency - with a summary of its work - listed at the bottom. This is the page.

Read the whole thing.

The 'Palestinian Authority' regards Dalal al-Mughrabi as a national heroine. More on instances of the 'Palestinian Authority' honoring her here, here, here and here. She was also honored by al-Jazeera here and here.

In the Arab World, murdering Jews makes women true equals.

And this PR campaign is funded entirely by your tax dollars!

What could go wrong indeed
