In response to “Trump, Kavanaugh and the Rape Culture of the American Jock,” October 2.

Thank you so much to Bradley Burston for his piece Friday. As Mr. Burston so poignantly writes, the situation regarding men and their often negative and derogatory attitudes toward women is sad and unforgivable. How much longer will we wait for change and better moments regarding our daughters and sons finding more loving ways to interact?

As a veteran feminist and activist in Israel, I cry for all of us in our inabilities to set in motion tikkun olam – repairing the world – and genuine gender equality.

UNRWA should be abolished
So now most UNRWA staff have fled into Israel, chased out by Hamas mobs. It reminds one of the Hamas/Palestinian Authority civil war when PA supporters and Bedouin were forced out in 2007 and sought safety in Israel.

UNRWA, the biggest “refugee” scam in history, has helped keep the Arabs under its control in poverty while supporting the terrorist agenda.

UNRWA was supposed to help the 700,000 Arabs who fled or were forced out of their homes in the 1948 war of genocide against the Jews, but not one refugee has been permanently resettled and taken off the welfare rolls in 70 years. That is a scandal.

Contrast this behavior with the situation of the 1 million Jews forced out of Arab lands and Iran. Most were welcomed into the newly created Israel and given new, productive lives. These Jewish refugees and their descendants make up 50 percent of Israel’s population.

UNRWA should be abolished and the UNHRC should assume responsibility for all the world’s refugees.
