Radical left-wing Democrats have attempted for quite some time to play things off as if they are the party that supports and backs women, having started the #MeToo movement to supposedly back females who were the victims of sexual assault, abuse, and harassment. However, it seems this is only the case if those coming forward with such allegations are leftists or fit the racial and religious requirements Democrats have silently put into place. For example, Israeli women being murdered and raped are seemingly excluded from receiving support due to the fact that leftists today despise Israel and Jews in general, referring to them as colonialists and much worse things.
May Golan, the Minister for the Advancement of the Status of Women of Israel, a female official, was recently interviewed by Erel Segal on Channel 14 in Israel where she revealed that she petitioned former first lady Michelle Obama to come forward and denounce Hamas for the rape and murder of women in Israel. The response she received was silence. Big surprise, right?
Here’s more on this from the Daily Wire:
May Golan, Minister for the Advancement of the Status of Women of Israel, was interviewed by host Erel Segal on Israel’s Channel 14 on Saturday and pointed out Michele Obama’s full-throated condemnation of Boko Haram, when the terrorist group kidnapped 276 girls en masse from a school in Nigeria. Obama, who started a hashtag campaign titled #BringBackOurGirls, later said of the kidnapping, “Why, two years ago, would terrorists be so threatened by the prospect of girls going to school that they would break into a dormitory in the middle of the night?”
Golan slammed women’s groups that have remained silent about the horrors suffered by Israeli women and girls on October 7, saying, “It’s impossible to trust these institutions anymore. From my perspective, they don’t have any relevance anymore.”
Golan noted that Michelle Obama had called to return the girls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram, prompting Israelis to sympathize with their plight, she continued that Obama had said nothing when Golan asked her to condemn Hamas. “Not a word. And we approached her …”
“Oh, this is new. You approached Michelle Obama — ” Segal stated during the pair’s conversation.
“Unambiguously,” Golan interjected.
“ — please condemn the case of the slaughter of the 7th of October, and Michelle Obama did not agree to condemn it?” Segal added.
“I’ll tell you more than that,” Golan responded. “I sent her a description, in authentic, sworn testimony, by people who told about the collection of severed female organs from women who had been raped, on broken pelvises, about shocking things that … I don’t want to continue to say in the Israel media. We know that the request has been received. She is not in a political position; she can certainly respond. Silence from her, from all the other female celebrities.”
It was barely a week after the horrific attacks on Israel back in the early part of October that Michelle Obama delivered an address at NYC’s 92nd Street Y, where she said she felt sympathetic to Israeli women, however, she did not condemn the actions of Hamas.
“I’m like all Americans watching the images coming out of the region,” Obama is reported to have stated. “I can say that, as a mother, I cannot wrap my arms around how people must be feeling. I can’t get the images of those young people who were gunned down attending a music festival because those kids were the age of my daughters.”
“Michelle said that there are ‘really no words’ to be offered ‘on that kind of trauma,’” The Messenger said. Obama then issued a warning to Israelis and those who sympathize with them not to “harden their hearts” despite the fact Hamas terrorists had viciously raped a number of women going on to say, “What I think about and what I pray for is that seeing those images gives people strength rather than hardens their hearts. Because when our hearts get hardened because of those kinds of acts, then we lose sight, and we lose our resolve for peace, and that’s something we cannot do.”
Is it really that hard to be a decent human being?
Rape is wrong. This is a no-brainer. It doesn’t matter who the perpetrators of the act are. It’s vile and wicked, one of the most horrible ways you can harm a woman. If a Jewish man committed the crime, I’d think the same thing and condemn them for it. Hamas terrorists are animals and butchers. As are most radical Islamic terrorists. It is not that difficult to just come out and call evil what it is.
The fact the left struggles with this should be a major red flag for average Americans.
