University lecturer on PA TV says that killing and beating women is a negative part of Arab identity

Palestinian Authority TV interview with Yusuf Jabareen, Israeli Arab lecturer at the Technion: Jabareen: "Part of our identity is to kill women, for example, to kill women, to beat women..." Host: "You generalize." Jabareen: "No. I don't generalize." Host: "Not everyone is the same." Jabareen: "Part of our identity is to attack women - we must acknowledge it. Every society has its defects and its charms. Palestinian identity has its charms, but there are things we have adopted from Arab culture for centuries that harm the individual and the woman. For example, in recent months, look how many women were killed in Lod, in Ramle, and in Acre, and so on. That's part of our identity."
