  Israel at fault for Muslim raping
While this piece initially caught my eye for the left's in-ability to focus.
"
A colleague of mine recently attended a demonstration in Trafalgar Square in London against the war in Iraq... After a few minutes he left in disgust, because the main thrust of the demonstration appeared to be against Israel rather than against the war in Iraq.

Jew bashing is always in style apparently, but I digress.

The report documents honor killings of women who had been raped. In one such case a 17 year old was murdered by her own mother after she was “repeatedly raped by two of her brothers.” In another case, a 21 year old “was forced to drink poison by her father” when she was found to be pregnant.

The report places substantial blame for these and other killings on – you guessed it – Israel. Here is Amnesty International's conclusion, listing the causes of the violence directed against Palestinian women, presumably in the order of their importance: 'Palestinian women in the West Bank and Gaza Strip are victims of multiple violations as a result of the escalation of the conflict, Israel's policies and a system of norms, traditions and laws which treat women as unequal members of society. The “escalation of the conflict” (which AI blames on Israel) and “Israel's policies” rank higher than the “norms, traditions and laws which treat women as unequal.” The report asserts that violence against women has “increased” dramatically during the Israeli occupation and has reached “an unprecedented level” as a result of the “increased militarization of the Israeli-Palestinian confrontation.” It is as if the West Bank and Gaza Strip had been violence free for Palestinian women until the Israeli occupation.

Of course its reaches its peak of left-wing fantasy when
"
Rovera acknowledged that AI could provide no such comparative data and confirmed that the report was based on anecdotal information, primarily from Palestinian NGOs. “We talked to anyone who would talk to us,” she said. When I asked her for a list of the NGOs that were the sources of the information, she refused to provide it because “there are things we can simply not provide to outsiders.”
