RAMALLAH, West Bank The Palestinian Authoritys supreme religious decrees council issued a fatwa this week that said Internet dating was permissible under certain circumstances in the West Bank.
The ruling Tuesday contradicts decrees issued by more conservative Islamic scholars and was rejected by the religious establishment in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian Supreme Ifta Council acknowledged in its fatwa that social interaction via the Internet has become widespread and said, It is impossible to avoid it or ban it completely.
The decree said online communications between members of the opposite sex were permissible, provided they were for the purpose of marriage, and provided that both parties abide by codes of ethics and religious directives.
It went on to specify that such interaction must be done with the knowledge of both families and shouldnt happen in a closed room. Women shouldnt provide details about their appearance or share photographs of themselves, it said.
Hassan Jojo, who heads the Hamas-run Supreme Sharia Court Council in Gaza, took issue with the decree. He said if a man wants to marry a woman, he should go to her house and ask her fathers permission.
Although he said it was permissible to pursue an acquaintance online with the purpose of getting married if there was “no other means of communication,” he said providing blanket permission for such connections would “ruin the moral values of young men and women.”
The Internet has expanded the horizons of young people growing up in the tradition-bound Palestinian territories, many of whom are active on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
Some use international dating sites, such as LavaPlace.com, and marriages have followed from an introduction over the Web. But the women who use such sites rarely post photographs of themselves, and the very concept of Internet dating remains taboo for many Palestinian families.
Despite this fatwa, Palestinian customs and traditions will be maintained, said Omar Ayad, who heads the sociology and social work department at Al Najah National University in the West Bank.

A majority of Australians support gay marriage but clear divisions emerge along ideological lines, according to data from the ABC’s policy tool.
Fifty-two per cent of respondents do not believe marriage should only be between a man and a woman, compared to 36 per cent who do. Twelve per cent selected ‘neutral’.
Among people who identify themselves as right-leaning politically, 72 per cent think marriage should only be between a man and a woman. For the left-leaning, 78 per cent disagree with that proposition.
Women and single voters are more likely to support gay marriage than men and people who are married.
Vote Compass asked for views on the statement: Marriage should only be between a man and a woman.
In other Vote Compass figures out today, 75 per cent of respondents backed legalising voluntary euthanasia for the terminally ill.
Vote Compass asked for views on the statement: Terminally ill patients should be able to legally end their own lives with medical assistance.
A strong majority of Australians want abortion services to remain at least as accessible as they currently are in Australia, the data suggests.
Settlers Talk Everyday Life and Parenting on Mommy Blog
Settler Mom: Everybodys got a blog now. Even the mommies of the West Bank.
Mommy blogs are nothing new. The blogosphere is full of sites written by self-proclaimed happy mommies, designer mommies, vodka-drinking mommies, redneck mommies, scary, sarcastic mommies and even stark raving mad mommies.
Now theres a new kind of mommy blogger joining their ranks: the Israeli settler mommy.
Mitnachalot Bareshet (Set on the Net), a new blog co-written by a group of five native Israeli women living in the West Bank, deals with the daily concerns of working mothers living somewhere that is unfamiliar to most people (even to most Israelis), except for what they read or hear about it in the media.
This is exactly why Tamar Asraf, a mother of five from the Eli settlement north of Jerusalem and Ramallah, started the blog in October 2012. Eli was recently in the headlines, as Israels Civil Administration in the West Bank announced a plan to legitimize hundreds of illegal structures built in the settlement over the years on Palestinian land both private land, and areas that have been declared state land.
I felt it was time for Israelis to speak with us settlers, rather than about us, said Asraf, a spokeswoman for the Binyamin Regional Council, an Israeli government body that oversees 42 settlements. There is a huge gap between what people think life is like in Judea and Samaria and what the reality is, she continued, using the biblical terms for the Occupied Territories.
Mitnachalot Bareshet is a public relations campaign and in fact received early funding from the Binyamin Regional Council but its one the women take very personally. Their blog is essentially a mommy blog, but with a unique twist. The women, who blog as volunteers, want to share with readers the challenges and rewards of the settler existence. They aim to show that family life on their side of the Green Line is the same as on the other side but also different in some ways.
Much of what the women write about is recognizable to all Israeli mothers and, in fact, mothers everywhere. There are lighthearted posts about keeping the kids busy during the long summer break, deciding when its time to buy a larger home, and handling addictions to smart phones and GPS devices. There are more serious ones on subjects like privacy and womens reproductive health, the death of a child and cancer.

HARVEY, La. – According to family members, doctors are trying to determine whether a baby girl, one of five victims of Monday’s west bank shooting, will be paralyzed.
The barrage of bullets left holes in the walls and marks on the floor of a Westbank apartment. Crime Scene technicians with the Jefferson Parish Sheriffs Office said they recovered 19 spent shell casings at the scene. The bullets shattered the television and pierced a deep freezer, and may have shattered the chance at a life on two legs for a one-year-old girl.
Four men armed with two weapons opened fire through the apartment door early Monday morning.
I was in my room sleeping and all I heard somebody knocked at the door and I heard gunshots. I thought it was outside, but no, it was inside my house, said Lionel Slater.
Three toddlers and two women were wounded in the hail of gunfire. Investigators said the shooters knocked on the door just after 4 a.m. Monday saying they were the Jefferson Parish Sheriffs Office. When one of the women unlocked the door, they sprayed it with bullets.
The littlest victims had been asleep on the couch.

Ohioans now support gay marriage by a slim margin, though Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman saw his approval rating dip because of his reversal on the hot-button issue last month.
According to a survey released this morning by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, more Ohioans support same-sex marriage than don’t by a margin of 48 percent to 44 percent. Results follow a Saperstein Poll for The Dispatch from last month which showed that 54 percent backed a proposed new Ohio constitutional amendment to repeal existing law and allow gay marriage.
Portman announced in March that he had reversed his position and now supported same sex marriage because his son was gay. Forty percent said they approve of Portman’s job performance compared with 31 percent who said they disapprove; in February his approval rating was 44 percent and disapproval number was 24 percent.
In December 47 percent of Ohioans opposed gay marriage and 45 percent supported it. And since Portman’s announcement, the number of Republicans who disapprove of his job as senator jumped by 13 percentage points, while 41 percent of GOP voters polled said they think less favorably of the junior Republican senator from suburban Cincinnati.
Women in Ohio support gay marriage 52 to 40 percent, while men opposed it 49 to 43 percent.
The movement in (Portman’s) numbers has not been massive and the overall movement towards acceptance of same-sex marriage, which we see in Ohio and elsewhere, could help him in the long run, especially if he seeks reelection four years from now, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the polling institute.
Meanwhile, President Barack Obama’s job approval in Ohio has plummeted, and now 45 percent approve compared with 51 percent who disapprove. He held a 48 to 47 percent approval/disapproval rating in March and in December he had a 54 percent approval rating.
An overwhelming number (80 percent) said they support universal background checks for gun buyers and 52 percent said they are more likely to vote for a congressman who voted for background checks. Such a vote came up in the Senate this week, with Portman aligning himself with the senators who defeated expanding background checks to cover more gun transactions.

Ramallah: The murders of four women since the beginning of the year on family honour grounds in the West Bank has motivated womens organisations to demand a law against the practice.
Womens groups have organised several protests in various West Bank cities with further activities planned. The protesters are demanding an immediate implementation of a fair and tough law that fully protects women from violence and murder on honour grounds.
Lubna Al Ashqar, Media Coordinator at the Palestinian Womens Affairs Team, said in an official statement that Palestinian society holds the woman accountable for family honour crimes. In the view of our society, the victim is accused and blamed in the event the murder takes place, she said. The woman becomes the reason for the crime not the victim. This perspective should be changed immediately.
West Bank-based women organisations urged the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and the Palestinian government to impose a law that protects women from violence, saying that action should be taken to provide women with the necessary protection.

Women in Palestine urgently need a civilised law which protects their lives, said Lubna.
The organisations will hold several strikes in front of various Palestinian institutions to alert them to the need for the implementation of a law that protects woman. The theme is No to Murdering Women.
During last year (2012) 13 women were murdered on family honour grounds in the Palestinian territories, with the number expected to rise this year and in the years to come.
Sabah Salamah, a womans rights activist, said that the Palestinian government should show seriousness about murder crimes against women. Laws that deter men from murdering women should be put in place to spare more womens lives in Palestine, she told Gulf News.

DETROIT (AP) A judge said Thursday that a lesbian couple seeking to jointly adopt children made a “compelling” case that Michigan’s gay marriage ban violates the U.S. Constitution, but he wants to wait for guidance from the Supreme Court before deciding whether to throw it out.
U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman heard arguments from the two Detroit-area nurses who filed a lawsuit last year attacking a Michigan law that prohibits them from jointly adopting children because they’re not married. At Friedman’s suggestion, they expanded their challenge to the gay marriage ban approved by 58 percent of Michigan voters in 2004.
But Friedman said he would benefit from seeing how the U.S. Supreme Court handles cases involving a gay marriage ban in California as well as the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Arguments are scheduled later this month in Washington.
An immediate ruling in Michigan “would not be fair to either side,” Friedman said while holding court in front of students at Wayne State University law school.
“They’re going to give us something to hang our hat on,” he said of the Supreme Court.
Assistant Attorney General Joseph Potchen said the two women, Jayne Rowse and April DeBoer, are doing a “wonderful job” raising three young adopted children. But he said the Legislature or the ballot box, not a federal court, is the appropriate forum for their opposition to laws that affect same-sex couples.
“That’s what democracy is all about,” Potchen told the judge.
But an attorney for the women, Carole Stanyar, said “fundamental constitutional rights” can’t be settled by popular vote.
With same-sex marriage, civil unions and joint adoption prohibited in Michigan, gays and lesbians in the state are treated as “second-class citizens,” Stanyar told the judge in arguing the ban violates the Equal Protection Clause in the U.S. Constitution.
“Same-sex relationships are no different than heterosexual,” she argued. “They’re grounded in love, commitment. … This is the defining civil rights issue of our time, the last remaining group in our society denied equal protection.”
