A woman’s place in Bethlehem? They're only seen in propaganda graffiti

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

Standing across from the Church of the Nativity and in front of a mosque during the call to prayer in the middle of the day, I’m struck by the absence of women. 

We noticed this almost immediately upon arriving in Bethlehem.

The only women to be seen were those who were part of the propaganda graffiti on the walls or western women from the peace and justice activist groups.

Knowing with certainty that you’ll get your head cut off would keep you quiet.

In the past, when a member of a family was retarded or was mentally challenged, the families would keep them at home or locked up so the public would not see them.
Do we jump to the conclusion that all females in muzzieland are mentally challenged?
Yes!
That would be the only logical reason for them to put up with this kind of treatment.
It is time that these women started thinking for themselves and acting less like a man’s property and asserting themselves as human beings and not like breeding livestock.
It is time for a women’s revolution in muzzieland.

No wonder so many of them are angry and violent, you cover your women and treat them like property and regard them as insects. Try loving and cherishing them and your life may be a hell of a lot better.

Wish that guy in the background would STFU.

All women are at home where they belong under islam.

They are not allowed to go out unless under the supervision of a male from the family – who must have hair around his genitals which makes him a man (no teenagers in islam and no child soldiers in islam – just the western media)

If she steps out unattended she can get off with a beating, or she can be executed – just depends upon the location she is living in.

You will never see many and sometimes you will see no women in any islamic setting.

Maybe it was Bethlehem Pride Week?

My thought exactly Peter. The only woman, and a pleasant looking one, in a field of misogynistic muslims is not a safety advertisement.

Sheila, be careful there.

If Bethlehem is mostly Muslim and there are only men on the streets, then it is highly likely that any women that would be on the streets would be fully covered head to toe.

With you being a women and head exposed … well, I would hate to think what might happen to you.

Wow, more questions than answers… Would any of those standing around there talk to you? Would approaching them even be safe? There’s a little store around the corner there that sells beautiful olive wood souvenirs… I wonder if the shopkeeper would do an interview. Where exactly are all the women? Best Q, what the hell is wrong with these people??
