Israeli Minister for the Advancement of Women, May Golan, said Saturday that she approached former first lady Michelle Obama to condemn the Oct. 7 attack on Israeli women by Hamas, but was met with complete silence. .
Golan, a member of the ruling Likud party, spoke with host Erel Segal on Israel’s Channel 14 during an interview about the widespread failure of women’s rights groups to condemn allegations of sexual violence against women during terrorist attacks. .
The following exchange ensued (translated from Hebrew):

Golan: It is impossible to trust these institutions anymore. From my point of view they no longer have any relevance. That’s what I mean. When Barack Hussein Obama’s wife Michelle Obama publicly spoke out against Boko Haram and called for the return of the girls abducted by Boko Haram, we here observed a moment of silence. Ta–
Moderator: Didn’t she say anything? she said nothing.
Golan: Not a word.And we approached her, let me tell you.
Moderator: Oh, this is new. You approached Michelle Obama —
Host: — Condemn the October 7th massacre. Didn’t Michelle Obama agree to condemn it?
Goran: I’ll do more than that. I gave her a shocking account of the matter, authentic sworn testimony by people who told of collecting severed female organs from women who had been raped and placed on broken pelvises. I sent it to Israeli media. We know that the request was received. Since she is not political, she is certainly available. She and other female celebrities should shut up.
In recent years, Michelle Obama has been involved in projects that support the empowerment of women and girls around the world.
A search of Michelle Obama’s social media accounts reveals no mention of Israel or the October 7th terrorist attacks.
As Breitbart News reported, UN Women, the United Nations agency that promotes women’s rights and equality, finally condemned the alleged “gender-based violence” against Israeli women on Friday, eight weeks after the attack.
