Israel: ‘You’ve declared war on the male gender!’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Family Movement Chairman Gil Ronen was expelled today from a Committee for the Advancement of the Status of Women hearing chaired by MK Aida Touma Sliman (Joint Arab List), after MK Merav Ben-Ari (Kulanu) interrupted Ronen, shouting "every week a woman is murdered here."

Sliman deprived Ronen of the floor, and when he replied that the committee had "declared war on the male gender," she ordered the Knesset Guard to expel him.

The meeting was intended to discuss data presented to MK Nachman Shai (Zionist Union) showing about 70% of cases against men accused of domestic violence close without trial.

Police and prosecution representatives explained the reasons for closing or not closing a case are professional and based on preponderance of evidence, witnesses, etc. The Committee Chair did not accept the statements and claimed a decline in the domestic violence prosecution rate, warning that if the trend continues, women might be afraid to complain.

Ronen was recognized and said that he accepts the domestic violence issue's importance and agrees that physical injury is usually more severe when a man raises a hand on a woman than in opposite cases. However, he noted, studies presented in Knesset by senior researchers show that women are no less violent than men in conjugal relationships, including severe violence and attempted murder.

Ronen also mentioned the Kohelet Forum study from 2016 revealing that among women's complaints against men there are "dozens of percent false complaints".

Ronen said the Committee and authorities had slid into demonization of the male gender and that the Committee should not apply political pressure on researchers committed to doing their work professionally.'
