Here Is An Idea

Britain has its own problem with Islam and the treatment of women.

As reported:-

Suicide rates among young Asian women in Britain are more than three times the national average, and about 12 women every year die as a result of honour killings, the medieval revenge that awaits those who dare to stand up and say “no”.

Britain should regard all young women, regardless of their origin, as individuals and not possessions. It is not enough to do nothing, for fear of offending cultural sensitivities. It is not enough to wait for “community leaders”, many of whom tacitly approve of forced marriage, to change hearts and minds.

So, I have an idea.

Let the British and any other EU country approach the Palestinian Authority on this issue of human respect and when the problem is solved, then, and only, then, should peace be discussed between Israel and the Arabs of the Land of Israel.

Why should we be forced into situations that Britain and others cannot deal with?
