UN Helps Honor Terrorist in Pro-Woman Campaign?

The United Nations Population Fund has teamed up with the Arab Producers Union for TV to release a video campaign supporting women’s issues in the Arab world, according to a report by Palestinian Media Watch.

The video features images of several different Arab women who are touted as “role models” for the community, and was reportedly broadcast on more than 50 Arab TV stations.

The problem? According to PMW, one of the highlighted women was a terrorist famous for killing 37 civilians during an attack on Israel in 1978. And she’s not the only controversial figure featured on the campaign ad:

Entitled The Model Woman, the clip honors different Arab women of the past, assigning to them various virtues and accomplishments. Dalal Mughrabi, who in 1978 led the most lethal terror attack against Israel, in which 37 civilians were killed, was venerated in the clip as a role model for “Martyrdom” and “victory over enmity.” Al Khansa, a 7th century Arab poet, who celebrated her four sons’ Martyrdom deaths in battle was praised as an example of “resolve” and “Martyrdom and giving.”

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen’s proposal to cut UN funding just keeps looking better and better.
