Best UN Decision Ever: Gaza Marathon Cancelled

The UNRWA cancelled a marathon in Gaza because women would be banned from participating.

Perhaps the best decision by the United Nations in the past decade:

A U.N. aid agency has canceled the marathon in Gaza following a ban on women runners imposed by the territory’s militant Islamic Hamas rulers.

UNRWA, which assists Palestinian refugees and also sponsors and organizes the event, announced on Tuesday that plans for the April race have been scrapped. A statement from agency says that “this disappointing decision follows discussions with the authorities in Gaza who have insisted that no women should participate” in the marathon. (AP) YNETNews.
