CBST Members at United Nations Protest

Since the Hamas terror attack, the minimization or denial of sexual violence perpetrated on Oct. 7 by the terrorists against women and children, despite having both eye-witness accounts and videos made by Hamas, has been painful.

Those who survived the attacks — and the surviving loved ones of those who were murdered — now experience the direct trauma of the attacks compounded by the refusal of even the United Nations to acknowledge them.

On Monday, Dec. 4, 2023, in front of the United Nations, a group of CBST members attended a protest of this minimization of denial of sexual violence, including CBST member Martin Perl, pictured here.

To contextualize and learn more about this issue, we recommend reading the Haaretz article “Israeli Women Fight to Break Global Silence on Hamas’ Sexual Violence.”
