O Women of 'Palestine', Hear The Call! Act for Peace!

Here's an action plan:

Kenyan women's group tells men: Make war? No love

Thousands of Kenyan women vowed Wednesday to begin a weeklong sex strike to try to protest their country's bickering leadership, which they say threatens to revive the bloody chaos that convulsed the African country last year.

Leaders from Kenya's largest and oldest group dedicated to women's rights, the Women's Development Organization, said they hope the boycott will persuade men to pressure the government to make peace.

Eleven women's groups are participating in the strike. The groups have also called on the wives of President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga to abstain. It was not clear how either wife responded to the request.

"We have looked at all issues which can bring people to talk and we have seen that sex is the answer," said Rukia Subow, chairman of the Women's Development Organization...Sex strikes are rare worldwide. Many men in Kenya are polygamous, as is allowed by law.

I see you find this amuzing.

There are great many of Palestinian men and women acting for peace in Palestine. You fail to mention them though.

actually, with multiple wives permitted, i guess it wouldn't work anyway.
