The silence of the Feminists....

Assita Kanko, a Belgian member of the European Parliament, excoriated feminists who have failed to decry the heinous atrocities committed by Hamas against women and girls during the October 7 terror attacks in Israel.

"Today, I have a question. A pressing question. For some Western feminists. How can you remain silent, when women and girls are raped, tortured, their bodies carried around naked and spat on by bearded men shouting Allah Akbar? Then you can never call yourself a feminist again," she wrote in a post on X, which also featured a video of her delivering the remarks in a speech. "Every day, including today, some Western hypocritical feminists should be ashamed of their silence on the horror that Hamas men inflicted to women and girls on 7 October."

"The MeToo movement and so-called intersectional feminists do not care about all women. If they remain silent, it means they have lied to us about their commitment to women's rights. Their actions support the oppressor, not the victims," she noted.

"Those who say nothing about these women and the hostages, should not be standing here and speaking about human rights. When you are under attack by terrorists, a cease fire is like raising your hands when you are being shot at. Perhaps it is worth considering that a real lasting cease fire will start with bringing back all the hostages to their homes and the rapists to justice," she declared.

Many people on X hailed Kanko's comments.

Actress Patricia Heaton shared Kanko's post and thanked her.

Kanko was born in Burkina Faso. She has said that she was subjected to female genital mutilation at 5 years old.
