Last Friday, the Huffington Post published a blog entry by Josie Ensor about women being forced into domestic labor jobs all over the Middle East, which leads them to despair and suicide. Rates of suicide are the highest in Lebanon, Jordan, the UAE and Kuwait. You should read the article completely to learn more about the situation. It's depressing, yet not surprising. And Israel and the Palestinians were not even mentioned once.
How did the human rights defenders on the Huffington Post community react to this? As you might not be surprised to hear, they didn't. None of the usual suspects (phute, Marcus, Sentient, hemara, etc) posted so much as one comment on the thread. I guess their attention was elsewhere that day.
