  • MK Touma-Sliman: “Next Woman to be Murdered Walks Among Us”

    An urgent meeting of the Committee on the Status of Women and Gender Equality of the Knesset was held on Tuesday, May 22, in the wake of homicides involving women in recent months, in particular following the murder of two sisters in Jaffa last week.

    At the start of the meeting, committee Chairwoman MK Aida Touma-Sliman (Hadash – Joint List) said: “Since the beginning of this year, 13 women have been murdered in Israel, three of whom were young women. Homicides involving women have always shocked me, but it is unacceptable that within five months, 13 homicide cases have been recorded. What infuriates me the most in these homicide cases is that they involve such young girls who are murdered in their homes, the place that is supposed to be protected, and where they are supposed to feel the safest. Home has become a place where you can lose your life. After the murder is committed, yet another murder is carried out, a character assassination to protect someone’s good name, via the media, which publicizes that the reason for the murder was the desecration of the family’s honor. There is no honor in murder.”
