Threats Force Arab Woman to Withdraw from Israeli Feminist Party

"We need you alive," said her relatives.
WeCanDoIt-FeministPoster

YNet Hebrew reports that an Arab woman was forced to withdraw her candidacy in a new pan-Israeli women’s political party because of threats.

The party, Ometz Lev (Courage,) was founded by Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Naomi Tsur and Councilwoman Edna Friedman to push for women’s rights. They intended to include all sectors of Israeli feminist society in the party including Arab and Hareidi women.

When they registered and had to reveal the names of the candidates on their slate, the east Jerusalem Arab woman’s name was included. And then the threats started.

“It started with telephone calls to my home,” says the woman. “[The calls] warned me that running for election is to acknowledge the sovereignty of Israel over the east (part of the city) and it will end badly.

Ultimately, she says, her family pressured her to remove her candidacy. “We need you alive,” said her relatives, and she gave up the idea.

(Meanwhile, Ometz Lev – which is still searching for a proper Haredi candidate – had to allow men who are pro-feminist to join the party in order not to run foul of Israeli anti-discrimination laws!)
