    Here. A bunch of people on here (comments 2, 3, 4, etc) are drawing a false dichotomy between cultural and religious tolerance and supporting women's rights. That's total BS. There is no contradiction in supporting both Palestine and women's rights. All people are people; all should be guaranteed personal safety and human rights regardless of religion, race, sexual orientation, and gender. That's obvious. Saying 'look what these people do to their woman, how can liberals support their cause?' is both racist and disingenuous.
